We couldn't be happier with our experience at Arc en Ciel. We worked with Heiura, who was knowledgeable, friendly, and easygoing. She gave us a presentation about the black pearls that was actually helpful and interesting without coming across as a song-and-dance routine for the tourists. She was very patient with us as my wife changed her mind over and... More

We bought the most incredible pearls from them which we didn't see the likes of in other shops or resorts this year. We even had our other necklaces' clasps replaced with theirs as theirs were far...
