There were so many pearl shops so we had no idea where to go when we arrived at the jetty from our cruise boat. Arc En Ciel had a sign offering a shuttle to their shop a few minutes away which we accepted. When we arrived we were greeted by Sabrina who gave us the story of her family business... More

At new time did we feel pressed or hurried to reach a decision. We purchased a set for my wife which received many compliments at dinner that evening. I would highly recommend Arc En... More

She instantly offered us a beverage and started to educate us on the pearly growing process. We had been shopping around at other pearl stores and we didn't exactly have a budget in mind, but...

Aude welcomed us at the store and gave us a brief description and tour of the displays then left us to browse. There was no pressure at any point and they... More

They were the first shop I went into when we rode bikes around the island . We spent the rest of the day going into several other stores checking things out as I figured I just couldn't buy from the first store I went into. I realized as I went into five to six other places that this store was... More

True to their name they offer pieces of jewellery displaying the colours of the rainbow along with the legendary black pearls of French Polynesia. And of course all that across many budgets. The...
