I was on the Wind Spirit and was present at the presentation on board ship by the owner's daughter. She remembered me from the ship and immediately rushed to serve me personally. She was lovely, and diplomatic when she realized I was not looking to purchase an expensive item (by their standards.) In truth, I went to the store only... More

We bought our pearls on Bora Bora. The sales people were so helpful, as we were making selections in different price ranges. Their knowledge and recommendations were outstanding and I am enjoying my earring and pendant, as well as getting terrific comments from my friends. I recommend this store to anyone looking to bur Tahitian peals. They had a better... More

We visited Sibani during our 20th anniversary trip in June 2014. My only regret is that I didn't have more time to spend at the store. Their designs were stunning! In addition, they had several unique pieces that could be worn "everyday" and not just for special occasions. I thought their prices were very reasonable. We were extremely pressed for... More

The people at Sibani Pearl were outstanding. They took the time to educate on the difference between their pearls and others one might buy, they were patient and helpful as I took my time selecting exactly the right pearls. They provided all of the documentation we needed to easily complete the customs transactions. They were amazing. Thank you Sibani Pearls.

My wife and I were recommended to Sibani by Amanda on the Wind Spirit. We've shopped all over the world. The service by Crystal, Uriko, and Robert was exceptional. Do yourself a great service if you intend to buy pearls in Bora Bora and visit/buy from Sibani! :)

Arrived recently on a Holland America cruise and our shopping guide recommended a visit to the Sibani jewelry shop. It was quite a treat, and I was able to find a lovely silver pendant with a black pearl attached. Everything looked good quality, with a wide variety of prices. I would recommend anyone to visit.
