Aude was great; my husband and I had such a lovely time looking for just the right pearls for our 25th wedding anniversary. They gave us a ride to their boutique, entertained us and helped us choose the most beautiful gold black pearl pendant, ring & earrings. When we left, we felt like we were part of the family. I...

Shop owner Wendy is very friendly and appears very knowledgable on pearls. Aude, her cousin if i'm correct, helped my wife to choose pearls. Very good shopping experience and i recommend Arc En Ciel to fellow black pearl buyers. Wendy arranged car service for us going back to ferry dock, very thoughtful and good service.

While in Bora Bora don't miss visiting Arc En Ciel Tahitian Pearl shop - the selection is huge and the options are many. My wife made too many choices - oh well, Happy wife, Happy life! Ask for Auda to serve you - she was delightful to deal (bargain) with.

Our trip to Bora Bora was not going to be complete with buying some black pearls. We found Wendy on the internet. This lady has the whole pearl buying experience figured out. She sent a driver to pick us up from Bloody Mary's where we were having lunch. We went into her store. The three ladies were so nice. It... More

I had a wonderful shopping experience. My final purchase was just what I wanted at the right price. Wendy explained all the details of black pearl production, and then gently guided me through all the choices. She was intuitive as to what I wanted, and how to get the best product in my price range. I never felt intimidated or... More

In June of this year, I spent two weeks traveling many islands in French Polynesia. While each of them were exceptional, I found Bora Bora the most incredible. Part of any trip to this area requires one to take home a pearl. When I entered this shop I was delighted with the warmth with which I was received. I has... More

We wanted to buy some black pearls, but didn't know much about pearls, so we were a little afraid to just purchase them anywhere as they are quite an investment. I am so happy we went to this place! The service was amazing! The owner spent 45 minutes with us explaining why black pearls are so rare and what to... More
