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

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.
