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

There are Tahitian Pearls everywhere in French Polynesia -- the trick is finding high quality pearls, beautifully designed pieces, and friendly, knowledgeable service all at competitive prices. Wendy at Arc en Ciel delivers all of the above! We visited 7 islands during our recent vacation -- stopping at jewelry stores, pearl farms and street stands -- looking for the large,... More

We went to Arc En Ciel to just check out the store before checking out the rest of the stores in the Area. But what happened was I bought a pair of earing and a pendant because they made me feel so special that I thought to myself I deserve. They were all so nice especially Mimi who was so... More

We had a nice experience at Arc en Ciel. Aude helped educate us on all aspects that make a quality Tahitian pearl. The selection is vast. Lots of beautiful jewelry at all different price points. I would recommend this place for great service, a nice selection, and reasonable prices.

Enjoyed entire visit to store. Aude helped me and my boyfriend find a beautiful pearl ring. I also bought two braclets and a pair of earrings. I couldn't be happier. Excellent staff. Very friendly and helpful. I definitely would go back again.

A large selection of pearls, [earrings, bracelets, necklaces, etc.], good quality. Picked us up from dock and brought us back. Recommended by our tour guide. Only negative, did not give you any discount.

One of the best features is the free ride to the store and back to the dock. Everyone I met was helpful and very patient. I had gone with the idea of purchasing a black pearl but ended up with a beautiful, elegant strand. There was no pressure to buy and the pearls ranged from everyday to formal wear. The... More

A special Tahitian Black Pearl now has a home at the bottom on NZ, Thank You Aude for helping us choose a nice pearl to go with one of your pendants. What a great selection to choose from. Very happy staff which made our day :)
