This store is evertime a highlight of my trip! I have been going to Perles Par Rousseau for over 8 years now and make a point of popping in on every one of my visits home. Besides the outstanding service, the quality of the pearly are amazing - they truly last a life time. I would definitely recommend everyone to check it out even if it is only for a glance - it is worth it and affordable!

A delightful visit and such a wealth of jewelry available. Rousseau provided outstanding service and helped me select a simple yet elegant pair of pearl earrings and ring that will help make my memories of South Africa all the more wonderful! You will enjoy your time spent at this boutique and he’ll be sure to find something perfect for you.

Had the opportunity to be gifted a lovely string of pearls for my 21st birthday from my parents. Even under the current circumstances, I couldn't be more happy that Perles Par Rousseau, went out of their way to make this gift so so special and memorable. I remember going into their shop when I was the age of 12 and just admiring all the pretty items...never would I have thought that one day I'd own my own pair. Thanks so much to the Perles Par Rousseau team for making this one for the books! PS, HIGHLY recommend paying them a visit! 🙂

– Chantal Pretorius

I always walked pass the shop admiring the beauty of all the lovely pearls, on request from a family member i needed to select a few options of fresh water pearl jewelry for a special occasion and got the chance to experience the place inside and everything was exceptional the customer service, the small chat the attention of understanding the customer's need. I will recommend everyone to support this beautiful store. I was completely in-love with the professional and sincere customer service. Thank You!!

– Wendy Joy Crowley

Great customer service, personalized on line shopping and even taking the trouble to demonstrate on how to care and clasp the pearls. Can’t wait to wear my new pearls.
