On a cruise this spring to French Polynesia, there were many places to shop for the wonderful pearls, and we visited many stores. However, our favorite shop was in Bora Bora at the Arc En Ciel. This is a family-owned business with the family members giving you a ride to their shop and then explaining the process. There were many... More

I went to this store to buy some pearls while in Bora Bora. I was looked after by a wonderful knowledgeable sales person named Sabrina Estall, who also taught me about pearls and how they grow etc. Very interesting. Arc En Ciel has many pearls, in many settings in gold, silver, white gold, on leather bracelets etc. Don't miss this... More

My new bride and I visited Bora Bora on our honeymoon and visited Arc En Ciel. This was unequivocally the finest jewelry purchasing experience of our lives. Don't waste your time on the other places. This is the only place to do business.

Arc En Ciel was wonderful! Prior to visiting the store, I purchased pearls from Robert Wan at the St. Regis and regretted my purchase at Robert Wan after meeting the lovely ladies at Arc En Ciel. The staff is bilingual and friendly. They spend about 5-10 minutes educating you about the black pearl market in Bora Bora, offer you pineapple... More

We were told about Arc En Ciel on one of our dinner transfers and looked up the reviews. We decided to check them out and I'm glad we did. It's hard to shop for pearls when you're on vacation, especially since we didn't want to spend a whole day bargain hunting pearls. I asked some of the locals (the ones... More

My wife was looking for a larger single black Tahitian pearl pendant and earrings. We shopped at many pearl shops but couldn't find the right pearl pendant, nor was she comfortable with the representatives of these shops. We lucked out at Arc En Ciel where Mimi Patu showed us a great selection of the desired pearl pendants and found a... More
