I loved that it is a family run business. they will teach you all about black pearls, from how they start to how they become the finished product! Mimi was GREAT to work with very knowledgeable and sweet. We didn't know about the shuttle service so we walked to the store, but it was worth the walk!

We met Véro at Arc En Ciel and that was it. She helped us find the perfect pearl for me, and 4 pearl bracelets to take home as gifts... More

We stopped here on a Tour and looked at the pearls but did not buy anything at that time because we had not looked anywhere else. After the tour, we went back to visit other pearl shops but none could compare. They had the best selection and the best prices. Aude was our sales person and she was very friendly.... More

We had an wonderful experience purchasing two pearl necklaces and to sets of pearl earrings from Arc En Ciel. After visiting the pearl shop at the hotel we were staying at and having sticker shock, I spoke to a local person who recommended Arc En Ciel.

Mimi was delightful and very knowledgeable when helping us to choose the perfect necklace, bracelet and earrings. They were the only shop with a showcase of men's pearl items. The quality of the pearls and the prices were excellent. Ask... More

We were recommended Arc en Ciel by the concierge at our hotel and we are glad she did! Aude gave us a really good and interesting insight into the pearls, how to tell the quality and how they are made.
