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.

We are very wary about purchasing jewellery on overseas trips. We've been caught out on more than one occasion. Didier Sabani has a most reputable business and is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the pearl industry. It was a pleasure to purchase my necklace from him.

My wife and I stopped at Sibani's during our visit to Vaitape. Julia was outstanding in servicing our purchase. No pressure - great instruction - great feedback on the looks, etc. Met the owner and designer while at the shop. If you have questions, ask away. If you have a price range, speak your thoughts. I thought the whole process... More

We had a great experience with Mr. Sibani when we listened to his explanation of the work he has done with the Pearls in Tahiti. He was very knowledgable and really nice! We bought Pearl earring for myself and our daughter. Great experience!

Hello dear friends Australian Yes Tahitian pearl is the best souvenir a woman can afford when visiting Polynesia. It is the memory that will always be present and that will remember this quite exceptional journey. Of course, as in all tourist countries it is important to choose the pearl jewelry that sells them.

This is a great little shop on the island for Black Pearls. The young lady that helped us was very kind and patient. She allowed me to try on several necklaces and was very knowledgeable about the pearls. I feel that I received a quality piece of jewelry for a reasonable price.

Hi Janey, Sibani Pearls is the older Pearls jewelry in French Polynesia and for us selling a Tahitian Pearls is not only a business where you can easily win money.

Dear Connie, First a big thanks for your nice message. Yes you can find cheaper Tahitian pearls outside the “Sibani Pearls Jewelry”. On the roadside, at the super market or even on some reel jewelries store that buy poor quality pearl at very low prices and use them like quality Pearls because after treatment they will seem outwardly beautiful.

While on a Windstar Cruise we were told about Sibani Joaillier and when he came onboard to talk about what we need to know about pearls before you buy I had to go. Needless to say I'm very happy I did. Yuriko was professional yet friendly.She was patient and didn't pressure or rush us.. I love the pendent. Thanks
