a love story
It all began in 1993, at Ahe (Tuamotu), on a pearl farm where manager, Thierry, intensified his research and cultivation efforts in the hopes of creating the most beautiful pearls. He gathered and harvested the oysters from spat collectors, used ecologically-safe cleaning methods, grafted and re-grafted the oysters, and even selected the colors.
Over a period of five years I watched him making the first grafting cuts and participated in the selection process, already envisioning the end-product. And then one day, exceptional pearls emerged… our pearls.
After personally collecting the oysters, maturing them, and selecting the pearls, we moved on to the final step: promoting our pearls. Skilfully combining my creative sketches and drawings with Thierry’s bold settings and piercings, we created our treasures of necklaces, rings, earrings, and pendants to showcase in Moorea.

The diamond of the sea
Ahe, Tuamotu archipelago, French Polynesia. On this small, distant atoll, our romance encountered another passion : the Tahitian pearl, the “diamond of the sea”. Years of cultivating the art of grafting and its tools, secrets, finally reaching perfection : sublime pearls, perfect and round, with exceptional luster and colors…
First time casual shopper
My friend wasn't really interested in pearls until we got to Tahiti. She saw the color and the beauty of the pearl. The ladies working at Pearl Romance were very knowledgeable about the history of the pearl and there was no pressure to buy anything. We bought at the Sofitel location, exactly what we wanted. A simple pearl each, on a bracelet to remember our trip to together. Sorry, I'm forgetting your names!
Lovely shop with excellent service
My husband bought me beautiful pearl earrings and bracelet. We were served by a lovely lady called Prisca, she was very knowledgeable about the products and answered lots of questions about how the Pearl's come to be created. She was so profession, a real credit to the company.

We looked at every shop in Bora Bora and Moorea. We finally chose some earrings here and Prisca was lovely to work with. They have unique designs that we hadn’t seen elsewhere and fair prices with a big range of options.

Pearl Romance is a dream come true
After browsing several Tahitian pearl vendors on Bora Bora and Moorea, we were delighted to discover Pearl Romance. Sonia and Caroline are wonderful to work with: friendly, knowledgeable, creative and patient. Their graciousness and skill, combined with Pearl Romance’s excellent selection of high quality pearls, made our quest for the perfect blue pearls and settings a pleasurable adventure. We’ll definitely be back to see them and their beautiful pearls on our next trip to Tahiti.

Beautiful Pieces at Reasonable Prices
My husband and I visited the Sofitel location of Pearl Romance the first time because we were staying at the hotel and wanted to find out more information about Tahitian pearls. We did not know anything about them. Caroline was so kind and showed us many options. She was very friendly and made us feel completely comfortable. We ended up returning to this shop and purchased two beautiful and unique pieces (a necklace and a ring). We would highly recommend this shop. The prices were very reasonable and there are many special pieces available in a range of prices. We were impressed with the quality of the pearls, the workmanship and design of the jewelry.
