Reviewed 27 January 2012

If you are looking to purchase pearl jewelry be sure to stop here. Nice selection, best prices and the people that waited on us were kind, very patient, and helpful. They offer you drinks and a ride back to town, a short distance away. The price for the quality can`t be beat!

“Delighted we went - wife very happy!!!!”
Reviewed 15 January 2012

First ime in Bora Bora, staying at the St. Regis - decided to go on a Jeep tour of the main island - that was incredibly exciting and interesting. The jeep driver brought us to Arc En Ciel and we visited with Wendy. From the time we said hello to the final good by - we were educated on the pearls, shown various settings and finally made the purchase my wife wanted...I also found something for myself. I highly recommend visiting with Wendy and her staff if you are in the market for pearls, you will not be sorry. Shireen/John CT USA.

“My big beautiful black pearl”
Reviewed 9 January 2012

I visited Bora Bora in Dec. 2011 and wanted a keepsake to remember it by.

As a guy, I dont wear jewelry really, but had a wrist band made of simple leather that I enjoyed years ago. When I visited the major pearl stores in Bora bora, they enticed me to add a black pearl to a leather strap and I know I had to have one.

I shopped all the major stores and then our cab driver said he would take me to arc en ciel and when he did, I joking told Wendy (we were INSTANT FRIENDS)...that I "wanted the BIGGEST UGLIEST BLACK PEARL she had...."

she showed me many pearls and I fell in love with the one I am wearing now. She allowed me to "design" my own band using materials she had on hand...she even asked me if I was a Jeweler?? (smart lady that Wendy).

The entire experience was a hoot...we laughed but in the end, I cherish this big beautiful majestic pearl.

Thanks to " Aude , Maheata , Andrea "
for my Tahitian Black Pearl ...

Please go see them ... you will love them.

“Great experience and fun shopping with Wendy”
Reviewed 12 December 2011

Our travel agent Aude, Tahiti Legends, recommended we visit Wendy's shop.We visited all the pearl shops on Bora Bora for the fun of looking at all the beautiful pearls, but when we visited Wendy's shop we could not pass up the great opporunity to buy some gorgeous pearls. Wendy was wonderfully helpful and patient and hand selected pearls for a one of a kind necklace for me. It was great and so affordable. I highly recommend anyone who visits Bora Bora visit Wendy so you can take home piece of beauty from the island with you.

Wendy is great and stays in touch with you so if you ever need to add to your collection, she can help!

Bora Bora was wonderul - everyone was very nice and friendly.

“Pearls in Paradise”
Reviewed 7 December 2011

We had a wonderful experience at Arc en Ciel in Bora Bora. A friend back home recommended Wendy, and we were not disappointed. Aude and Wendy took great care of us. We learned about how pearls are created and graded, had a great time trying on and picking out my pearls -- and never felt pressured to buy any more than we wanted. Prices are very good and they are very helpful in providing a cheat sheet on currency exchange rates. Many 'ready made' pieces of jewelry in all price ranges, or they are very quick to make something custom while you wait. We recommended Arc en Ciel to several people at our hotel and all reported back they had a similar, positive experience. If your travels take you to Bora Bora, skip the expensive hotel shopping area pearl shops and find your way to Arc en Ciel. It will be worth it!
