Nous pensons, Natasha et moi, très souvent à Barnaul. Oui, depuis notre rencontre en Mai 2011, nous avons vécu des péripéties sympathiques, avec le déménagement de Natasha vers la France.
Tout commence au « Bookmarket », un centre commercial de Barnaul, le 14 mai 2011. Après des mois de correspondance avec Natasha, je me retrouve devant elle, en compagnie de notre interprète. Après avoir pris un café, Natasha et moi sommes partis, en ville, nous promener jusque sur les bords de l'Ob. Natasha m'a pris la main, bon, rien d'interdit mais, j'ai vite compris, à ces côtés, qu'elle allait changer ma vie.
Tatiana a magnifiquement bien organisé nos rencontres, mon logement à l'hôtel, mes déplacements, ainsi que de notre petit séjour dans la ville de Belokourikha. Oui, un petit paradis sibérien à quelques heures de Barnaul. Nous y avons passé Natasha et moi, nos premiers jours ensemble.
Il ne manquait rien à mon séjour, et cette rencontre… ni même la tristesse de quitter la Russie, dont je suis aussi tombé amoureux !
Ensuite, nous avons été très bien assistés par Russian pearls dans nos démarches pour les visites de Natasha en France, l'organisation de sa venue définitive et, notre mariage. Merci Oksana, Merci Tatiana !!!
Je me réjouis déjà de nos retrouvailles l'été prochain et vous souhaite une bonne continuation et de passer un hiver … pas trop froid.

I want to wish prosperity to you and make more people happy in this world ! »

Thank You from Micheal and Nadezhda
I found the service provided by Tatiana and Oksana to be very helpful. Tatiana walked us through every step in the process and proved to be invaluable. From before my first letter to finishing the paperwork to bring my Nadia to the USA she was there to help. They not only were very helpful but also very warm and caring. They have all my thanks. Thank you, Michael
I want to express you my deep gratitude for all your work. Communication with you has always been pleasant and when I saw your smile all fears would disappear, because it is not so easy to make the decision to come to the agency. I remember how correct and friendly Oksana was during our first meeting with Michael. In Michael I found a wonderful man - intelligent, kind, patient and loving. And I am happy now. Thank you for your wonderful work! Everything related with paperwork has gone smoothly only because we entrusted you the whole process of visa paperwork. Thank you once again for everything, Nadezhda
Thank You from Tony
First I want to thank you for all your work, advice and expertise which guided Irina to a successful
interview process at the embassy in Moscow. Also thanks for all the arrangements and plans you made
for her to get there and back including the hotel, transfers, medical exam and transportation. It was very
much appreciated by Irina and me. In all of this K1 process your work and diligence has been very
professional and most reasonable. American lawyers charge twice as much and don't produce as much
work and information especially getting the woman through the interview process.
Thank you again for all your efforts.
Thank you very much for your kind words about my work. It is really very pleasant, and I hope one day
to receive the wedding pictures of you and Irina. I shall be looking forward to that day.
I think she will enjoy this trip, as she will be calm and she'll know that very soon you'll be
Kind regards, Tatiana
P.S.: Tony, can I publish your last letter in our site?
Again thank you for your help and guidance for her and myself throughout this long and tedious process.
Your work was far and away more comprehensive, correct, detailed, and much more financially
reasonable then when I went through an unsuccessful process with a USA attorney several years ago.
In that case everything (translations, etc.), were not part of the original price. By all means you may use
my letter on your website.

Thank You from Irina and Alex
I only wish to say a big sun has come into my heart and so many good emotions that are changing constantly my life for better, all because Irina is now my wife and it was the best that happened in my life. As my personal contribution, I must say that the letters were really important and I knew already I found my soul mate with them.

The Story of Ed and Nadejda
Thank you Russian Pearls!
Using your services was by far the best decision I've ever made. Normally I would be way too shy to do anything so adventurous as travel to Russia to meet women, but a friend of mine met his wife through the agency. At first, I did not like the idea at all. Luckily, my lazy side prevailed. After only a couple of frustrating nights just trying to register for services on American dating websites (and filling out mile-long forms), I gave up on American dating sites all together. Instead, I decided to use the services of someone I knew I could trust, even though they were half way around the world!
Once I made the decision to sign up with Russian Pearls, things started happening fast. I painstakingly wrote an introduction letter about myself, and sent a few photos. Then the dialog began between myself and the agency about me and what kind of woman I was after. Before I knew it, I was in their office in Russia meeting the woman of my dreams and having the time of my life. There were some bumps along the way. I admit that had no idea what I was getting into and was poorly prepared. Luckily, the staff are seasoned experts and their priceless advice lead to a happy ending. My recommendation for anyone who wants to use their services is to focus on getting to their office in Russia. Meeting their staff and the women face to face is where the whole process really took off for me.
"Before I knew it, I was in their office in Russia meeting the woman of my dreams and having the time of my life... Everything has worked out spectacularly and I am so grateful to have met Nadejda through Russian Pearls. I can't imagine what life would be like today if I hadn't."
Throughout my entire trip, they offered excellent services. First of all, they helped arrange my trip, including transportation from the local airport to my hotel. After a long plane ride, I was very happy to have them pick me up. They helped arrange for a Russian visa and registration, which can be a hassle to do by yourself (which I've done several times now). While I was there, they helped plan some great activities and accommodations that helped ensure a very fun and successful trip. Best of all are their communication services. Many of the women in the agency only speak Russian. I thought this would be very strange, but it worked out in my favor. I was terrible at talking to women. The agency provided a translator who is also an expert match maker. I don't speak Russian, but I'm almost positive that the translator took my dry and sometimes awkward comments and smoothed them out a bit. Since I couldn't talk to women myself, I had no chance to ruin the atmosphere by saying the wrong thing. It was great!
Soon after starting to use their services, I was engaged. We decided to get married in Russia and the agency even helped us plan the wedding. Our wedding was unbelievable and much different than American weddings. The reception was loaded with traditions, along with some things that were completely crazy, like me dancing in a tutu. Did that happen? The agency also helped us prepare all the paperwork needed for my wife, Nadejda, to travel to the United States. Since then, we have had a daughter (Victoria) and Nadejda has started working in the field related to her studies in Russia. Everything has worked out spectacularly and I am so grateful to have met Nadejda through Russian Pearls. I can't imagine what life would be like today if I hadn't.

The Story of Jacques and Elena
Now, when I have found my happiness, the man I feel harmony with, the man I can be myself with and feel that I am loved, I believe that it is a miracle to find harmony in another, stranger environment! Somebody said that if we think well about all miracles happened in our life we will realize that they are just the result of our efforts. I totally agree with that and I am very grateful to Russian Pearls Agency for their help. They helped me to meet my soul mate and to realize that he is really the right one for me. I will try to explain why. At the beginning, when the relations are very young and fragile, even though we had had long correspondence and attraction during first meeting, it was difficult for us to understand some actions and words correctly because of the mentality and education differences. And that is why it was important to listen to interpretation of words and actions from the person who knows the mentality and psychology of western people better. And at the same time, there was the moment when you needed to explain the reasons of some of my actions to my future husband because sometimes I am also under the influence of our stereotypes and ideas which are common in Russia. And at such moments I liked the accuracy and delicacy of Tatiana. I know that not every person can do such things and help people so much. Thank you, Tatiana!
"if we think well about all miracles happened in our life we will realize that they are just the result of our efforts. I totally agree with that and I am very grateful to Russian Pearls Agency for their help."
I have never regretted that I was a member of Russian Pearls Agency because they really provide you with professional help. I am grateful that my trip to Monaco was perfectly organized. For instance, I am an independent person, but like any person who lives in province, I worried how I will find the Embassy in Moscow and if I manage to come everywhere in time. I didn't know Moscow at all because it is so far away from Barnaul and I have neither friends nor family there. But I didn't have any problems there because everything was organized by the agency and my trip to Moscow was without unpleasant surprises and problems. Their representative met me at the airport and took me to the hotel (it was very convenient because I had heard many different stories about Moscow taxes before), the hotel room was booked on my name. And when next day I came to the Embassy, my visa application was prepared correctly by Tatiana. All that time, (I had to stay in Moscow for several days to wait for my visa) I was in touch with Tatiana and she helped me to check the results on-line. And when I finally got my visa, their representative came again to pick me up to International Airport. Certainly, I was grateful to my husband as well, that he took care of my trip and all organizational issues and it was one more positive side of our relations. It helped me to realize that it was important for him how I feel and that he was taking care of me.
I want to thank Russian Pearls agency once again for the chance which has made both of us happy!
With respect and best wishes for you!
I want to say to everybody that I am very satisfied with the quality of your job about the meeting between Elena and I. Elena is my wife now, and we are very happy to live together. Thank you very much for the comforting, for the encouragement once I was in Barnaul. I appreciated the sense of your welcome. Thanks to organize my journey to Barnaul: reservation of the hotel, translation between Elena and I for the first time, and to be with me when I needed it! Sincerely I don't think we could understand each other with Elena without somebody to introduce me to the Russian psychology. Thanks because you did it! Thanks to be so patient when we were trying to obtain the visa for Elena. Your help to organize her journey was necessary for Elena to come here.
The Story of Yulia, Sylvain and Lisa
It has been 8 months since I moved to live in France with my husband who is French man. And my daughter is also here with us. We even speak French a little bit already. I drive a car and can go shopping and to the market myself, I can go to hairdresser and to drugstore myself. Step by step all the difficulties related with moving, opening visa for my daughter and so on, begin to disappear and we begin to have a normal daily life. The life where we all are very, very happy! And a year ago I even wouldn't be able to imagine that such life exists. And it is still hard to believe that all that is happening to us ..."The life where we all are very, very happy! And a year ago I even wouldn't be able to imagine that such life exists. And it is still hard to believe that all that is happening to us... "
I often think about how a couple of years ago I came to Russian Pearls agency. By that moment I had had some experience of communication with men from different countries on different web-sites. First of all I liked it in Russia Pearls that they didn't promise “golden mountains” to me, they just told me “Let's try!”. And I will never forget Tatiana's advice to write my presentation letter with some humor! And later when I asked my husband why he had chosen me among hundreds of other ladies, he said that he was laughing a lot after reading in my profile that I swam “like a stone” and he felt he needed to get acquainted with me.
At the beginning I didn't like in Russian Pearls the fact that I couldn't write to a man myself first. And I agreed only because I had known by my own experience that men usually didn't reply if you write to them first. And only now, after experiencing the whole process I realize that it is the best way to give a man the right to choose you because when he chooses you, he accepts tremendous responsibility for you, for your children and for your future life. And even he is not so much motivated then he will never manage to bring you to his home-country because it is really difficult to bring home a woman from Russia. And I am very grateful to my husband that he wasn't afraid of this responsibility, that he managed with everything, wasn't scared, didn't change his mind and was moving only forward... We all are very grateful to Russian Pearls for this chance to feel what happiness and love really mean!

The Story of John and Dina
Dear Russian Pearls,
I want to express to Tatiana, Oksana, Oleg and all the staff at your Russian Marriage Agency our appreciation for all of your hard work and consulting as I was married within the one year of proposing and I know it was all thanks to you."You found me a Russian wife who just happens to be the prettiest, best-educated Russian girl, with a great sense of humor, values and similar interests as mine such as starting a family."
I did not have a lot of trust in the Russian Marriage Agency websites that I found online; where Russian girls could sign up and create a profile and upload pictures for FREE. I learned about your Russian Marriage Agency through other Agencies you have worked with and from a few friends who were also happily married after finding love and romance by using your services. I learned that the Russian Pearls screen, interview, and accept or decline Russian girls into their agency based on the Russian girls’ desires. So, after many years of loneliness and heart ache, I signed up for your 3-month membership and not only did you produce the results I had so long been searching for, but you also provided care for both your clients-myself and Dina-and put in the extra time and effort to make it all so easy, and time that was never billed or charged.
Prior to my visit to Barnaul Russia, I was able to send letters to the Russian girls I liked and they were translated for the girls by the Russian Pearls agency. Then the Russian girls responses were quickly translated back to me. In the following months, your agency arranged for telephone conversations with my favorite Russian girls. Due to the many emails with pictures I received and so many wanted to meet me, it soon became obvious that I had to come to Barnaul Russia and meet with the Russian Marriage Agency in person, and meet my potential true love.
The Russian Pearls Russian Marriage Agency helped with my winter Holiday visit with suggestions and tips about my travel plans such as Aeroflot Airlines, hotel options, New Year’s Eve and other travel and entertainment plans. I am immensely grateful for the great work the Russian Pearls Marriage Agency did for us both. While I will admit there were times I was unsure of the whole process of communicating with and meeting my Russian Bride, Dina, I had complete confidence in the way you handled everything. Your Marriage Agency arranged for Dina’s medical exam in Moscow, her hotel, her English classes, her driving classes and my gifts for Valentine’s Day, her birthday and other special events were all handled with care and sensitivity and with absolute trust as I purchased these services through your website and online store.
After consulting with the Russian Pearls Russian Marriage Agency and corresponding with many Russian Girls and going on several dates, I finally met Dina in person and I was swept off my feet. You found me a Russian wife who just happens to be the prettiest, best-educated Russian girl, with a great sense of humor, values and similar interests as mine such as starting a family.
My wife Dina has just returned to Barnaul Russia to visit her family and after being in California USA for the past two years, she also plans to visit the Russian Pearls Russian Marriage Agency to present you with small gifts of gratitude and cognac to keep you warm in the winter. We are always recommending others to your Russian Marriage Agency and we hope to continue other special agency services you offer-like arranging for a family webcam to family webcam session. My wife’s family can visit the Russian Pearls offices and we can see and hear each other through these webcam chats this coming Holiday season or any time during the year.We cannot thank you enough and we hope that your services will continue to thrive and that other couples will meet and be as happy as Dina and I. Again, thank you for all you have done for us.

The Story of Dwight and Svetlana
I want to express to you, Oleg and Oksana the immense gratitude I have for the great work you all do in the endeavors of Russian Pearls. While I will admit there were times I was unsure of the whole process of communicating with and meeting my Russian Bride, Svetlana, I had complete confidence in the way you handled everything after I became fully aware of Russian Pearls position and sensitivity to the needs of your clients."The entire process became trouble-free because of your expertise and knowledge of the system, and especially because you care."
From the time Svetlana and I met by letter till she arrived to America we waited more than 19 months for the time when we would finally be together and at long last married and very happy. The entire process became trouble-free because of your expertise and knowledge of the system, and especially because you care. I have come to trust you and your professional team without reservation. I hope that you will have many successful couples to meet through Russian Pearls throughout the coming years. If any client wishes to ask any questions of me please feel free to give them my mailing address and/or my email address (email@example.com) and I will be more than happy to oblige.
Next year, May of 2008, we are planning to return to Barnaul for a visit. We shall come to see you all while we are there.

The Story of Olga and Jon, 2005 year
First off to anyone who reads this letter it is strictly just my opinion I am stating based off of my experiences with Ruspearl@alt.ru soon to be Russian-girls.us.com. Nearly a year ago I was in the final stages of adopting a 10 year old Russian boy when my wife of 29 years suddenly died of a heart attack while we were in St. Petersburg Russia. I was totally devastated to say the least but all the Russian officials I had to see in order to get my Wife back to the United States and all the adoption staff in Russia were so good to me and helped me so much that I formed a life long love for the Russian people. I returned to the United States and took care of my family and grieved deeply for I had lost a great love.
Four months after my wife died I returned to Russia and finalized the adoption of my son. Russia was truly burned into my soul now and a part of my life for ever. Another month passed and I started having very strong feelings that I needed to find a Russian woman to be my new wife and to start a new life with. The emotion grew so strong that I new it was God calling me to go to a place I had never been before to meet a lady I had never met before. I tried the internet to find an agency reputable enough that I could correspond with in order to meet my perfect Russian lady. I was very nervous and unsure about this method as there is so much garbage and negative information on the internet. I did much research and background checks which made me feel better but it was not until I took the step of faith and got on an airplane and flew over 9,000 miles to Barnaul Russian and met the lady I could only dream about face to face and talk face to face with her agency that United States and took care of my family and grieved deeply for I had lost a great love. 4 months after my wife died I returned to Russia and finalized the adoption of my son. Russia was truly burned into my soul now and a part of my life for ever.

"I realized how fortunate I was to have chosen Russian-Girls.us.com."
All my fears were put to rest, all the questions I had were answered and I knew I had done the right thing. Not only did they help me and my lady on a very professional level but they always treated me with much respect and understood that I was out of my element in a foreign country with language difficulties and extreme jet lag and away from the normal food I ate every day-to put it plainly without their help these trips would have been very difficult. I was able to send many letters to my Love, flowers, gifts anything I liked it was available through Tatiana's agency. This was without a doubt the most Romantic time I could have ever imagined. I have so many wonderful memories and so does my lady, my love. Her name is Olga and she is without a doubt that Russian lady I needed so badly in my life-but not just mine-for I was able to give her the love she had searched for and now together we will be complete.
Yes it is a difficult thing to love someone so far away but it magnifies the love ten fold when we are together and now we are in the final days of our waiting period before she gets her visa and I can bring her home. Remember men, these women give up everything to love you-they will love you complete and totally and they are fiercely loyal so in return you must give them your true heart, your self, your all and then you too will have a love like my Olga and I have.

My Jon and I, we do not say "the agency Russian Pearls", we say Tatiana, and that is for your amazing work . Your agency has been an invaluable help to us and is sure to assist countless others in the search for their second halves.
"To me that is the most important thing in life
- to find your second half."
I was alone for a long time, now thanks to God's will and Tatiana's incredible dedication I have accomplished my dream and secured my second half in mature age. I discovered that no matter what age you are love can be found, when two hearts are beating in unison you can enjoy each others presence just walking along the street or sitting at a quiet table in a romantic restaurant. Throughout the good times you should realize that when your loved one lives in another country there are differences between the two and that marriage will not be an eternal holiday, we should understand that marriage is responsibility. It takes care and hard work to make each other happy. Russian women are really the most wonderful women in this world and I wish much happiness to all Russian women and those men who will appreciate and understand them. I hope that our example will inspire others for happiness.

On October 2, we will celebrate our first anniversary together. I haveto say that we are insanely happy, that we both believe we were meant to betogether. In the process of assisting Lena and I, the staff of RussianPearls became more than matchmakers, they became friends.Sincerely,

Story of Jay & Irina, 2005
Irina and I wanted to send you our “best regards” following our wedding last week. Irina was a beautiful bride.
I am so thankful to have found Russian Pearls in Barnaul, Siberia. I have traveled to many places around the world for business purposes, but rarely felt more at home than in Barnaul…a beautiful city.
"One of the things that that you hear about from other travelers is the beauty of Russian women. By in large, it is true. But there is beauty both inside and outside, and with my “Irinochka” I found both!!!"
We first “met” through the website. It is true. But after exchanging hundreds of letters and talking on the telephone dozens of times we knew that we were “meant for each other.” Russian Pearls made our communication effortless even though we spoke different languages. Letters were translated quickly and accurately. Most importantly, translators and other staff knew Irina personally and helped convey her true feelings.
You and your staff were always there to answer questions and provide support at critical times. I will never forget how you help me “search” for my Irina when she had to temporarily leave her village to help her sister. Soon though, letters and telephone conversations were not enough for us. We had to meet and look into each other’s eyes.
Today, I still recall fondly our first meeting on that cold December morning. I walked across the snowy airport runway with my heart beating loudly, but the professional and caring assistance of your staff made that first meeting a warm memory for both of us. It takes a lot of courage to make the trip, but it can change your life forever.
Our entire time together in Barnaul was like a fairytale…for me at least…starting with the morning drive to the hotel with Irinochka by my side. I needn’t have worried about the details of my trip because Russian Pearls took care of the invitation, airplane tickets, airport transfers, hotel reservations. You made my trip worry free. With the guidance of Russian Pearls, I felt comfortable traveling to Barnaul, and I always knew that you and your staff were just a phone call away. Russian Pearls was always there with professional assistance in finding restaurants and resorts. Irina and I have fond memories of the “Mexico” restaurant (Yes! A real Mexican restaurant) in Barnaul and the resort in the Altay mountains where I experienced the “banya” (a really hot sauna) for the first time…;-) I also wore the traditional felt-lined boots known as “valankis,” which Irina bought for me, for the first time there.
With your assistance, we were able to spend time together and get to know each other without worrying about logistical issues. There in Barnaul, Irina and I decided we wanted to spend the rest of our life together. Later, your help with Irina’s visa application was most useful in navigating the bureaucracy and avoiding delays. Most importantly, your good counsel made our burgeoning relationship easier. Irina and I knew that we could trust your word and advice. Now, we are husband and wife and very happy.
Thank you again for all of your help Tatiana.
You helped another couple find happiness.

The Story of Bruce
For a guy who is wary of world travel and the threat of scams, I am so thankful to find Russian Pearls in Barnaul, Siberia. I wrote many women from the common web sites in Russia and had mixed results. I met a couple of scammers, a few poorly handled agencies and a lot of miscommunication between me and both the woman and the agency. I was never sure who to trust, what was being said, what to do next, etc. As a result of those experiences, I concentrated on agencies far from the big cities and tourist areas; I looked at the center of Siberia. That was a good decision that I will never regret.
"From my first contact with Russian Pearls,
I knew I was in good and trustworthy hands."
Letters were translated quickly and accurately in both directions. Translators and other staff know each of the ladies personally and very quickly they knew me also. I chose to write to ladies from the list and soon found one who shared many common interests and values with me. During the following months, we shared letters, telephone conversations and pictures until it was obvious that we had to meet in person.
I went to Barnaul 2 times: once in summer and once in the dead of winter. Summer is a great time to wander around in the Altai mountains, which are much like the Appalachian Mountains in the USA, but much bigger. I was most impressed by the friendly and hospitable people, the beauty of nature and the variety of things to do. It was a wonderful place to meet and get to know each other as we traveled. By the way, Russian Pearls arranges all of the places to stay, excursions to various activities, transportation and much of the food for the entire trip. I thought I would be going to a foreign place and having to “wing it”, but all we had to do was to follow the itinerary and relax. It was so much fun!!! I also thought that an arranged trip would be tremendously expensive, but I was pleasantly surprised how affordable it was. A trip in my own country for the same length of time would cost much more. I pre-paid for almost everything through RP, eliminating the needs to carry large amounts of cash and to negotiate with people in an unfamiliar language at every new place. I found that RP was completely trustworthy as they “adopted me” and provided everything we needed to become acquainted and survive and thrive together.
Barnaul City is a wonderful place during the New Year/Christmas period in January. Americans asked me, “Why do you want to go to Siberia in the winter? Are you crazy??” To that, I will say that you must experience Siberia in the winter to know what its residents are like. They are wonderful!! The entire city is decorated and festive, with huge ice sculptures that are works of art on every corner and mammoth ice slides (the Gorky, a sort of bobsled experience on 2 feet!) carrying thousands of people each day. It is bitterly cold there in the winter, but that brings out the warm hearts of the people of Barnaul. After I got my Siberian coat and hat at the bazaar, I could see why they smiled so much. They dress warmly and stay in motion. With three major holidays in a 2 week period, there was no lack of things to do. I loved being immersed in Siberian culture, using public transportation and experiencing the warmest side of a culture that we often think is cold and reserved.
"If you reach out to the people of Barnaul,
they will meet you with a smile and all the help you need."
I spent 3 weeks there and enjoyed every minute of it! Sightseeing is nice to do and it gives activities to fill time, but Russian Pearls is about relationships. Russia is full of ladies with jaw-dropping beauty, who have hearts of gold. Barnaul is no exception to that. From the USA, Barnaul is a long trip, but it is well worth the time on a plane. Barnaul has a domestic airport where large, commercial planes can land, so it does not require a long road trip. From the time I got off the plane, we had a translator who helped with communication. However, I had brought 2 translator devices from Ectaco that were very good and we needed a human translator for only a few discussions after my arrival. That way we were free to wander the mountains and city as a duet, not a trio. At the same time, I will say that the translation services of RP were excellent, consistent and almost invisible as I got to know my new friend. When we became more than friends and talked of life in America, the quality of translation became more and more obvious.
The new web site of Russian Pearls shows the ladies of Barnaul very accurately and modestly. When you read the words about each woman, you will see the deepest hopes of her heart, not easily written and not cheaply displayed. These are ladies with survival skills and values that are deeply engrained in Siberian culture. They don’t talk easily about themselves, but they have much to share with the “other half” of whom they dream. To any man who finds his “other half” in Barnaul, he will never regret going so far to find her. Ladies from Barnaul are called Russian Pearls for good reasons. Finding your “other half” is a two-way process. Ladies in Barnaul are not “mail-order brides”. They are women who are honestly seeking a man with whom they feel connected. The heart of one of these ladies must be won, not purchased. Russian Pearls gives man and a woman a way to look for their “other half” and to develop an honest and deep relationship with the “one” they choose. A man who lucky enough to be chosen by a woman with Russian Pearls will find a heart that is a treasure worth discovering. RP provides many ways to help that also includes psychological counseling done with taste and great sensitivity. Any couple who chooses to go through the immigration process will find ample help with Russian Pearls. When a couple finally decides to marry, bureaucratic obstacles can seem insurmountable. I have found Russian Pearls to be as good as any lawyer to help with the preparation of papers, translation of documents and preparation of ladies for their interview in Moscow.
"Did I say how much I trust the staff of Russian Pearls?"
They won my trust many times with their open hearts and generous spirits. They could charge much more for the services they provide and handle large numbers of couples. However, they choose to remain small and to concentrate on relationships instead of money. I believe that Russian Pearls is one of the finest organizations I have ever met anywhere and I thank God for the day that I learned about them.
One more thing: I met my other half. Without the help of Russian Pearls, I would have never met her and certainly would not have been able to cut through the language barrier to know her heart. These two “halves” met with the help of Russian Pearls and soon we will be “whole” again.
Russian Pearls is more like a family than an agency. I tell them that matchmakers have a special place in heaven and I am sure that the family of Russian Pearls will have a huge reunion up there some day! They have changed our lives and I hope that their new web site helps to spread the joy to many, many other “halves” who are looking for each other. I love Barnaul. I love Russian Pearls. But most of all, I have learned to love my “other half” with the wonderful help from our family at Russian Pearls, who adopted us and helped us along.

Story of Michel and Tatiana 2004
Congratulations, you have found the site of adorable Russian pearls and now you probably wonder what to do. At least that was my thought when I first got in touch with this agency. Maybe my story can help you. After some correspondence with Tatiana and giving it some thoughts I decided to go to Barnaul in November 2004. Of course I was nervous, traveling to Russia alone and not knowing what is going to happen. But it turned out to be the best choice I have ever made and it changed my life completely. The agency arranged everything, the trip to Barnaul, the hotel. They even told me to buy warm cloth because it can be very cold in Siberia in November. They also arranged a meeting with a beautiful woman and thanks to the help of an interpreter I was able to talk to her.
"I never believed that love at first sight existed, but now I do."
After several meetings we decided to go on a trip to the Altai Mountains, so we could be together for a few days and see how it would work out. It is a great place and if you have a change you should visit it. This was just what we needed and I realized how lucky I was to have met such a wonderful woman. Now we are planning to get married and live together in the Netherlands. I especially have to thank Tatiana, Oksana and Oleg for everything they did for me. They made me feel at home in country I had never been before and they were always there to help me. What I am trying to say is that true love exists and the people of adorable Russian pearls will do anything to help you find it. My advice to you is simple: go for it and try to find what you are looking for.
I am writing this letter to you to express my deepest gratitude. Your agency helped me to meet my beloved man who lives in Holland.
When I came to the agency, I deliberately wanted to changed my life – I wanted to get married, have a child and change the country. It is a very serious step in life and it is very important to be guided by professionals. I was lucky and I got acquainted with a professional psychologist Tatiana and a skilled interpreter Oksana. Along the whole way of search I faced with professionalism, competence, psychological comfort, honesty and sincerity in relationships. And I am very thankful to you for that.
"Now I am absolutely happy."
Our documents are in the Embassy and soon I will be with my beloved man for ever. Every person deserves happiness and can be happy, you should only believe in yourself and look around you. That is wonderful that your agency exists and helps people in their search.
The Story of Eric and Elena, 2003
On peut dire que je n'avais jamais eu avant la moindre expérience avec des agences de rencontres, parce que je n'avais à leur sujet que des préjugés négatifs. Pourtant, en cherchant un peu je suis entré en contact avec l'agence Russian Pearls, l'une des seules qui ne me paraissait ni racolleuse, ni simplement à vocation lucrative. Bien m'en a pris car cette agence allait changer ma vie grâce à son sérieux et son profesionnalisme. Mon seul but était de trouver l'ame-soeur et de fonder une famille.
Il était très difficile pour moi d'envisager un voyage en Sibérie sans connaitre la langue Russe, ni même être capable de lire les panneaux dans un alphabet inconnu sans un intermédiaire de confiance, et cet intermédiaire allait être l'agence Russian Pearls.
Dans un premier temps, je suis entré en contact avec plusieurs dames de Barnaul. Nous nous écrivions par e-mail en utilisant la boite de l'agence, qui traduisait également nos lettres. Très rapidement, le courant est passé avec l'une d'entre elles, Elena. Nous avons donc pris la décision de nous rencontrer pour la première fois à Barnaul.
L'agence s'est occupé de me fournir toutes les explications concernant le voyage, mais aussi de certains papiers indispensables à l'obtention du Visa, du billet d'avion, et surtout de mon accueil en Russie. En premier lieu, une personne m'attendait à l'arrivée de l'avion à Moscou et m'a conduit en voiture dans le deuxième aéroport d'où partait l'avion Moscou-Barnaul. Ensuite, j'étais accueilli à ma descente d'avion à Barnaul par une personne de l'agence et par Elena elle-même. Avec Elena, nous sommes tout de suite tombés amoureux et je dois dire que tout était prévu dans mon séjour pour nous donner les meilleures conditions afin de passer notre première semaine ensemble de façon merveilleuse.
A Barnaul, l'agence m'avait réservé une chambre dans un excellent hôtel. Et surtout nous sommes allés quelques jours dans une station thermale du nom de Belokuriha située à plusieurs kilométres de Barnaul. Nous étions logés dans un luxueux hôtel au milieu de la station et les promenades au milieu de paysages paradisiaques étaient pour moi plus que dépaysants.
Dès mon arrivée à Barnaul, grâce à l'agence et bien-sûr, grâce à Elena, j'avais oublié que j'étais si loin de chez moi et j'étais totalement en confiance. J'ai passé là-bas l'une des plus belles semaines de ma vie. Je ne dis pas la plus belle car le meilleur était encore à venir. Car depuis, Elena est venue en France 2 mois après, toujours avec l'aide de l'agence et nous nous sommes mariés. C'était il y a déjà un an. Nous venons d'avoir un petit garçon et l'agence nous aidera encore quand la maman d'Elena viendra pour rencontrer son petit-fils.
Je voulais fonder une famille et j'y suis parvenu. Rien n'aurait été possible sans l'agence Russian Pearls, parce qu'en fait rien n'est possible sans confiance et bien-sûr rien n'est possible sans amour.
Story of Mark and Luba, 2003
Hello Tatiana, and all the staff at Russian Pearls!!
It is with great pleasure that Luba and I can recommend Russian Pearls to other men (and women) that are looking for a partner and soul mate from across the sea. As you know, Luba and I consider that you and the rest of your staff at Russian Pearls played an important role in our meeting, marriage, and Luba's eventual move to California. Russian Pearls handled all our letters, many of our phone calls, our three meetings in Barnaul, and guided us through a successful K-1 Visa application.
"Over the past two years, there is nothing that I would change."
I think the best compliment that I can pay Russian Pearls is that having reflected back on everything that you and your staff have done for Luba and I over the past two years, there is nothing that I would change. In particular, and perhaps most importantly, you made by first trip to visit Luba in December of 2003 so easy and worry free by taking care of virtually everything , including the invitation, airplane tickets, airport transfers, hotel reservations, etc.. With you help and guidance, I never felt uneasy in traveling to Barnaul (although I had never before traveled outside of America), and I always knew that you and your staff were just a phone call away if I ever needed anything.
We would be happy to answer any questions your clients may have, and they should feel free to contact us at any time
Thanks again, Mark and Luba, your dear friends from California.
Story of Svetlana and Alvy, 2002
Hello, my name is Svetlana and I want to share my story with you. After my divorce the thought about having a new family didn’t come to my mind at once. I just wanted to have some rest and break after my failed marriage. But time was passing by and I felt that I want to feel loved again. And I didn’t lose hope to meet my beloved man. But nothing happens without mistakes. I chose a marriage agency which was widely advertised in our city and when I saved enough money for their services and the services of photographer I came to that marriage agency.
Later, a couple of years after that I found out that one of my friends also had tried to use the service of that marriage agency and it was without results. Nobody responded to my profile. And after such failure it was hard to believe in success. But time was passing by and my daughter was growing and my dream to create a family didn’t leave me. And finally I made up my mind to come to Russian pearls agency. It was my last hope.
"I didn’t believe in success till I began to receive letters from men."
And that meant that somebody needed me. that gave me strength and belief. And the letters of my husband stood out against a background of all the letters from other men. From the first letter I could see how serious he was. He had a wide choice, but he chose me and wanted to communicate only with me. I didn’t understand that at once, but Tatiana told me that I could believe him and her experience! Then we had telephone conversations in the agency and I heard his soft voice. He asked me what songs I liked and I answered my favorite song was “Yesterday” by Beatles. And the next time we talked he played the guitar and sang that song for me. it was the first time in my life when somebody sang a song for me! And after that there were more songs and poems and he arrived to Barnaul after half a year.
From the first moments of our meeting at the airport I felt like we were old and good friends, there were no difficulties even though my English wasn’t so good. we could understand each other without words. when he came to Barnaul next time (it was in summer) we decided to get married. We had been communicating for 2 years before I arrived to America. Probably to somebody it will seem to be a too long way, but during that time we talked about everything on the phone and learned each other very well. We told each other about passed days, woke up each other in the morning and when we were about to go to bed we said “Good night” to each other (the time difference was 12 hours).
I can say that period was very important in my life because on arriving to a new country I had only my husband. He became everything and everybody to me. He guided me everywhere. I have never regretted about my choice. He has done everything for me to feel comfortable in his country and I do. And I want to close my letter with the words from a song “Now it’s scaring for me to imagine that you would have open another door, or would have gone another way, and wouldn’t find or met me”. I am very thankful to Tatiana Krasnova that she helped us to open “the right” door and find each other in this huge world.
With best regards,
Svetlana and Alvy
