My husband surprised me with an anniversary trip to Bora Bora and we wanted to get a Tahitian pearl necklace as a special memento of our trip. Our travel agency recommended Arc En Ciel. The selection of pieces, and price ranges for every budget, was outstanding. We got a quick over view of the pearl industry, how to best determine... More

This is a family owned pearl store, very professional, very good selection of pearls and jewelry. We really appreciated Wendy's willingness to share information about their pearls and how they are created, harvested and graded. Wonderful experience, highly recommend them!

MiMi was great, we went to this shop as a recommendation from a few locals and she treated us great. My wife and I had a ton of questions about pearl grades and jewelry mountings, and pearl care. She was very patient and helped us select a bracelet for my wife and two Christmas gifts for family, and all were... More

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
