After all these years of visiting French Polynesia, I must admit we were still amazed this time when we walked into the Sibani Perles jewelry store in Vaitape, Bora Bora. Both my wife and I have worked in the pearl industry and we've seen our fair share of beautiful pearls, but entering this particular jewelry store is a treat every... More

Yuriko was the most helpful and patient person that I have ever worked with. I have never choose a pearl ring before and didn't have any idea of what it entailed. She explains me all the story about the bird of a pearl and I really feel safe after her explanations. I hope your company appreciates her . A kind... More

Went in October 2013 for our honeymoon. Me and my wife were set on purchasing black pearls as souvenirs for our momentous occasion. Check out a couple of shops but this was by far the best. Price was great, location was great (short boat ride from Hilton and close to market, café, and bike rentals). Our favorite person in Bora... More
