This a quality reputable fashion forward jewelry shop. The shop is llocated at cook's corner where the bus stops in town. It always surprises me when I go in each time they have new designs! The prices vary from economical to high end one of a kind. If you see a really nice pearl piece in ytown chances are it... More

The quality and design of the beautiful jewellery in this shop is superb, and the service is 2nd to none. So, so happy with my purchases and I will definitely be back for more!

I was lucky enough to get to shop for some famous South Seas pearls while in Rarotonga. After running around to at least 10,9ther jewelers we ended up at Bergman's. The selection and quality were by far the best we saw and the customer service can only be described as "pampering" while we shopping champagne and beer were provided, there... More

Over the years that we have been to Raro my wife has bought black pearls from a few different places but the last two trips we have been to Bergmans. This business is so professional and the staff so knowledgeable and helpful we felt totally comfortable purchasing from them. I would totally recommend Bergmans to any visitor and we will... More

The store has a huge selections of pearls but be careful. Do price comparisons at other jewelry stores in town. They are not easy to deal with if you want to return something. Be aware they are affiliated with the Beachcomber Pearl Market which has over priced settings.

lukeb2011, Director of Sales at Bergman & Sons, responded to this review

Anita, I find your review most surprising. You were unhappy with a purchase at the pearl market and I offered (without you asking) to give you a credit on that piece against the earrings you were looking at, at Bergman & Sons. I was under no obligation to do this, they are very seperate stores. Furthermore, I offered to use... More

I have purchased black pearl jewellery on three occasions over the past eight years from Bergman & Sons. The quality of their product, their knowledgeable, friendly and helpful "non-pushy" staff (especially Ben, Luke, Martha and Verena), and their after sales service is second to none. On my first visit to Bergman & Sons in 2007, I purchased a beautiful bangle... More

What a magnificent display of beautiful lustrous black pearl jewellery that made me seriously envious. Although it was fairly clear that I wasn't buying, the lady in the shop seemed very happy to answer my questions about black pearls and added lots of interesting information, showing me the differences in colour and lustre.
