After looking in lots and lots of shops to find the perfect pearls on my honeymoon, I'm so glad I stumbled across Eva's shop! It really is unique as Eva took lots of time to get to know us, understand my style and educate us on pearls. She was really kind, friendly and passionate about the jewellery being right rather...

After visiting many pearl shops, I knew this was the right one to make my purchase after talking to the Eva, the shop owner and jewelry designer. She hand picks each individual pearl in her shop, she does not buy in bulk like the other shops. She designs and creates all of her jewelry herself, unlike the same old tired/standard/unexciting...

We stopped by the store close to the closing time thinking it's just "another pearl place" and we will be in and out. What a surprise! It was our first-time shopping for pearls, so Eva took time to educate us all about them. Then she spared no effort nor time to make sure I found the perfect "one" - even... More

Eva was amazing, attentive, well informed and knowledgeable. She is the only certified gemologist on the island, as well as a designer. She never pressured me to buy anything in her shop. I came in browsing and still she took the time to teach me a "lesson" about Tahitian pearls. After a lot of driving around in Mo'orea to many... More

We almost were convinced by hotel staff to go to other places where there would be lots of discounts for cheaper pearls. We're very glad we listened to local restaurant owners for the true story of who to go to - and they recommended Eva Perles shop.Clearly, hotel concierge are scams when they say "Mention my name for 40%...

Before leaving home, I read Tripadvisor reviews on buying Tahitian pearls. Not wanting to waste beach time comparison shopping, we came straight to Eva Perles. Our experience was far better than expected! Eva displays her work with plenty of space around each, so that the individual beauty of each piece can clearly be seen. There really is something for all... More

I had a wonderful shopping experience with jewelry artist Eva at her shop, Eva Perles. Eva designs and produces lovely, unique jewelry and she will gladly share a bit of her knowledge of pearls and her process of designing jewelry.
