Didier Sibani began his interest in Tahitian Black Pearls working alongside Coco Chaze on the atoll of Manihi in the Tuamotu Archipelago. In 1973, Sibani established himself as one of the pioneers of the Tahitian Pearl Industry. By 2001, the SIBANI Pearls group has grown to 69 boutiques around the world. At the heart of the Polynesian South Pacific, lies our flagship retail store in Vaitape, Bora Bora.

 

We create a local and comfortable atmosphere through our bamboo decor and friendly professional staff, whom are well educated in the history and value of the Tahitian Black Pearls. We pride ourselves in educating our clientele about every bit of the production process concerning the cultured pearl.

Our selection includes an overwhelming variety of pearls in all shapes, sizes and grades. Matched with pendants, earrings, and necklaces of silver or gold, we assist our clients to find their unique pearls, to highlight their unique persona.

Open from 9am to 6pm Monday through Saturday. Closed Sundays.

Attended a lecture by Mr. Didier Sibani on the history and details of the Tahitian pearl and the industry and learned so much from this charming and knowledgable gentleman. Having been a pioneer in this industry, he is amazing! In his shop my experience was also outstanding. Mr. Sibani's daughter spent as much time as needed to ensure that I... More

I walked into this store to browse. I had previously visited four stores and wanted to compare with those options I saw earlier that day. I encountered the most lovely sales assistant, Julie I believe. She spent over half hour with my husband and myself showcasing various rings and settings. Eventually suggested we look at earrings and together we found... More

I have the wonderful pleasure of hearing Mr. Sibani on my Windspirit cruise when we docked in Bora Bora. He had just flown in and was tried. But you would have never known it. He spoke about how he started and developed his business, how pearls are cultured, and what to look for. He was delightful and the talk was... More

I had done some research before we left on our tour. So when we went shopping on the Paul Gauguin I had an idea of what to look for as far as quality. I knew about the difficulty in a shop getting their pearls certified so when I saw that all of their pearls were certified I knew that those... More

My husband and I purchased a beautiful pearl necklace from Monsieur Didier. Unfortunately he was so busy when the Windstar docked that he was unable to come to the yacht to share his knowledge of pearls but after meeting with him earlier in the day and his suggestion that we wait to hear his talk about pearls we decided to...

We were very happy with our purchase from Sibani Pearls. I had the opportunity to attend a presentation on the Windstar from Mr. Sibani, and then went into the store in Bora Bora. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Thanks again!

We walked and and was greeted by the owner, Mr. Sibani. He happened to be there that day (he has many stores and his pearl farm is on another island). He spent over an hour with us telling us the story of the Tahitian Black Pearl and his "babies" the pearls. He was the first one 47 years ago that... More

I wasn't planning to buy any pearls for this trip, there were so many pearls everywhere in Tahiti, I didn't dare to buy because I couldn't tell the quality and if they were fake.
