Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful jewellery, helpful staff who are very knowledgeable. The jewellery is very reasonably priced. Thrilled to have added a stunning Keshi pearl necklace to my collection today. Thanks to Liam for being so helpful.

We celebrated our anniversary with the purchase of a pearl necklace. A fantastic selection of pearls and jewelry, great knowledge of the products, and a very friendly member of staff. Beautiful venue with stunning views too. Thoroughly recommend.

Pouring with rain we visited with friends who were interested in buying some 'pearls.' Plenty of free parking in front and a bright and modern interior. All kinds of pear jewelry on display and our friends found what they wanted. The staff were friendly and welcoming . I Particularly enjoyed the view across the sea and we had a pleasant break in the attached Cafe. Well worth a visit for the view, whatever the weather.

Visited the Isle of Wight pearl with the sole intention of choosing a pearl to accompany the set my mother bought when she visited the island.
The place was quite and the two members of staff available were enjoying a lovely conversation whilst cleaning the windows.
We were completely ignored and we were not the only ones.
So we left empty handed
We won’t return

I am so sorry you were ignored, this is not our normal style of customer service. We do try to acknowledge every customer whilst allowing them time to browse in their own time, so I am disappointed our team didn't greet you on this occasion.

Disappointed. I was expecting to see lots and lots of pearls and more exquisite jewellery. The cafe was tiny and I couldn’t see where they put out the deli food.

Hello, I am sorry you were disappointed by our selection of pearl jewellery.- we are one of the largest pearl retailers in the UK. The deli food is served from 12pm, so if you came earlier than this it wouldn't yet be displayed. It is freshly made throughout the morning then put in the front counter, so it is visible for customers to choose from. If you would like to discuss your comments further please contact us on 01983 740352 or by emailing info@iowpearl.co.uk

We had a fantastic lunch today, gorgeous salads and no scrimping on the portions. There was an option to have a gluten free scone which I was dubious about as any that I have had from elsewhere have been awful. The chef said he makes them himself so I gave it a go....I couldn't believe how good it was, I will be back for many more!
Thank you chef!

Gone down hill. Not much selection food wise for lunch. Cheese scones used to be amazing but now you wouldn't be able to guess there was any cheese in them. The savoury teas used to include salad and cheese but no longer do. You also can't see the cake selection anymore so didn't bother with them. Disappointed.

Hi Alice, I am so sorry you found our selection of food disappointing. Our chef recently changed the recipe to a mild cheddar- I am sorry you found them to be lacking in cheese, I will feed this back to him. Our savoury teas are served with chutney and cream cheese as they have always been, however if you'd of preferred a slice of cheese instead of the cream cheese, we would have been more than happy to do this. I will pass your comments onto our café team, as all feedback is welcome. We wish you had brought this up with a member of the team whilst you were here so we could have resolved this for you. If you would like to talk further about your review, please call us on 01983 740352.

This review is for the cafe NOT the shop. Views were great, plenty of seating inside and out. It was also dog friendly. However, if you are planning to go for lunch you might want to think again. There were no menus so you couldn’t sit down outside and choose, you all had to go inside and see. The only thing that seems to be on the menu was a large or small deli plate. (Which seemed quite dear for what it was) this was all behind glass and was served by staff when you chose what items you wanted. Very odd, labour intensive and totally out of your control. If you are after cake, there seemed to be numerous types of sponge but as these were on the back counter behind where staff were serving so you couldn’t see what they were. Again, very odd. In the end we just opted for a pot of tea and went elsewhere for lunch.

Hi Gerowa, I am sorry you didn't enjoy our new Deli Café. We've currently made some changes, and are still fine tuning some elements as it progresses. We do have menus available to explain the deli plates and the rest of our menu which is made up of daily specials and sandwiches. I'm sorry none were available to you on your visit. The food and cakes are all behind glass to ensure no cross contamination can happen and are all clearly labelled. Our staff are more than happy to explain any of the cake and food options if you are unable to see the choices. I will pass your comments onto the café team as all feedback in welcomed. We do hope you'll try us again.

What a lovely place. we went for breakfast and stayed so long we had morning tea as well.
The food was gorgeous and the strawberry and prosecco jam for the cream tea was amazing.
The service was friendly and inviting.
The dog was allowed in which is an added bonus during hot weather.
Nothing was too much trouble.
There were many outdoor tables if you wished to sit outside and enjoy the view.

Visited Isle of Wight Pearl in March last year, bought a beautiful freshwater Pearl bracelet, noticed on a night out that the Pearl charm had become detached and I sadly lost it, I contacted them by email and was advised to return the remaining bracelet as it was covered under a 2 year warranty, I received a brand new bracelet within few days, could not praise their customer service enough, would highly recommend a visit/purchase and will definitely be back again! ☺️
