Shopping for Pearls

We are going to be there for a day and have heard that Moorea is the place to get your black pearls. Anyone here done that and where did you go?

Have heard that Island Fashion is good and the owner nice to deal with. Anyone verify?

21. Re: Shopping for Pearls

Update for anyone interested.

We did end up buying the pearl that we wanted in Moorea and bought it from Eva's.

We docked in Moorea on a Sunday and had the ship excursion of the island and got hustled into the driver's wife's store to look at Pearls there. Nice, but not the comfort zone we were looking for. We had made arrangements for Eva's husband to come and pick us up after our excursion and take us to her store. Another couple joined us.Normally the shop is closed on Sunday, but they went out of their way to accomodate us.

We both bought. We left the store knowing what we bought was good and were never hustled. When you leave a store and feel good about it, there is that comfort factor and we got it there. Very nice folks to deal with and no games.

In my case we bought one single black pearl that was very well received by my daughter on Christmas Day. That said it all.
