What a fabulous experience at IOW PEARL We visited today and made purchases of some beautiful jewellery. We then dined in the restaurant and we’re looked after by Jake & Caitlin. We sat outside with glorious views. Staff and food were exceptional will visit again. Thank you Jake & Caitlin xx

Rude and unhelpful
Jun 2021 • Friends
Unless you like being ignored and patronised I wouldn't bother coming here, two members of staff one doing paper work and one serving. We waited at the pick and pearl counter and was glared at non stop and when the staff member was free she choose to ignore us and service the 'retail counter customers', which makes me think they are commissioned based,after complaining about it out of know where 3 staff members appeared and the one who dealt with us was condisending and patronising giving the impressed we had clearly disturbed something (being 2.30 and the store closing at 4 I doubt it was lunch) the pick pearl costs £28 and the reality is its over priced and staff not interested so I wouldnt bother visiting....so far its been the worst service on the island!

Bitterly disappointed
May 2021
Where are the staff?? Visited today and only 2 members of staff in the whole place across 5 or more counters. Most upsetting of all is the fact that I was quite blatantly ignored in favour of the Japanese tourist who arrived to stand at the counter after me. The other member of staff was running around after an extremely loud and demanding family group. Although I went with the intention of buying pearls today, and spending several hundred pounds, we left empty handed. Very poor experience and I’ll take my money elsewhere.

A lovely trip on a rainy day
Oct 2020 • Family
We visited the Pearl factory on the 29th October, during our short stay on the island . We were really impressed with the welcome and COVID set up .
We had some great food in the cafe which was dog friendly.
My daughter (16) and family friend (11)
Decided to do the pick a Pearl - cost £28
It was fantastic and a real experience . They got to choose their oyster and get a Pearl - which was weighed and valued .
I would definitely recommend this to visitors to the island.

PEARLS ARE *NOT* FROM I. O. W.!!!
Sep 2020 • Family
This is just a shop selling pearls from Asia. They are not farmed here. The name of the shop is highly misleading as is their counterpart, "Jersey Pearl". However, they have a very large array of pearl jewellery for sale albeit rather run of the mill designs which looked mass produced rather than hand crafted. A very misleading attraction in my opinion.

Pearls
Sep 2020
Called in on the way back to our holiday cottage for a quick look around. Agree with a previous comment about the lack of COVID precautions. There was hand gel at the entrance but there was no one monitoring the number of visitors or asking for customer details. There was a Track and Trace barcode to scan, which everyone was ignoring. The shop is in a large square space and so a one way system could easily be created, but sadly once inside, it was a free for all, with people going in all different directions around the separate square counters.

With regard to the pearls and jewellery, there was lots of different goods to choose from and a range of prices to suit. I spent quite a lot of time looking at various pieces but no one asked if I needed any assistance. There appeared to be plenty of staff around but were too busy talking to each other.

I ended up leaving without purchasing anything as I wanted to have a think before making an impulse purchase. However I did not bother returning to buy anything. Did not use the cafe either so cannot comment on the facilities.
