Had a wonderful experience last summer with the owner of Sibani. While I was looking for a specific color pearl, he spent an enormous amount of time with me going through his stock and I found a ring that was totally unexpected. Could not be happier with my purchase!

We visited many jewellery shops in Bora, and Sibani was by far the best we have seen. The shop is ideally located in the city center of Vaitape. We found that the pearls at Sibani were the most beautiful and with affordable prices in comparison to the other sellers. Thank you to the salesperson Yuriko and the founder Didier for their good advice on Tahitian pearls and their relaxed attitude. We recommend without hesitation.

There are several places to buy pearls in Bora Bora,so I walked in and out of Sibani Perles three times. Each time the sales person was extremely nice and helpful. I saw a lovely bracelet and many other fabulous jewelry pieces at Sibani Perles.
On my third visit ,within an hour, I decided this was the place I wanted to purchase the precious pearls from,
I was actually quoted a price that was lower than the actual price,which I was not aware of at the time. They honored the price quoted without question. Even when I offered to pay the extra money.
Allow a little extra time for the duty free paperwork. When you get to the airport it is a very easy process.
So thrilled I discovered my pearls at Sibani!

I visited all the shops which sell pearls in Vaitape, Bora Bora, even though Sibani Perles was recommended to me. I bought a Grade A, teal, 9 1/2 mm pearl from Sibani Perles because the sales person, Jade was so patient, kind, knowledgeable, and not pushy. Thank you for helping me find the most beautiful pearl on the island of Bora Bora for me. Your advice was perfect-buy the pearl you love, and have it put into a white gold setting that you also love, when you return home. Here is the finished piece that I will treasure forever.

Beware of this store. I purchased a very simple braclet with two small pearls and was told that the price was 98.00 U.S.D. This company debited my account for $1,083.14. My bank says that there is nothing that I can do.

Dear Madam, I am really sorry to learn that the confusion is made on the prices of our jewelry. This is the reason why each one of our labels all prices listed are in Pacific Francs, US$ and Euro. In addition we indicate on each invoice the amount of the purchase in the local currency of the customer and for you $ US. Also at the back of our bills in our selling conditions we indicate that we accept to refund you 100% during all your stay in the French territory if any regret. We realy respect our clients and always find the best solutions that for our customers are satisfied with our services and collections. With us the client is the real boss. Realy sorry to make you disappointed. Best regards Didier Sibani Owner & General Manager

Dear Friend, Here is a very nice message that warms us for the rest of our day. Yes pioneer of pearl farming in Polynesia since 1969, we celebrate this year my 50 years of love with pearl and pearl jewel of Tahiti. All our pearls stay 5 years in the water instead of a few months for most farms and that's why we are the only ones who can guarantee our pearls for life. Our crops are also among the most important and this allows us to offer the best quality and the most beautiful colours. We are looking forward to your fourth trip to our islands and send you our friendship. Sincerely Yuriko and Didier

My husband & I were visiting Bora Bora for our 50th birthdays (Bucket list/Dream trip). We wanted pearls from Bora Bora to mark the occasion. After researching many places, we decided on Sibani. We couldn't have made a better choice! Yuriko was AWESOME! I had something in mind that I wanted & she gently guided me to a pearl bracelet that suited me style and color wise much more than what I pictured in my head. Yuriko helped my husband pick out the perfect bracelet for him as well. She was very knowledgeable, patient & not pushy at all. She really knows her stuff! She was also training a young lady who helped with our check out. The young lady was just learning & she did just fine...no problems.
The directions for clearing customs with our jewelry was thoroughly explained & also printed out for us.
We had a wonderful experience purchasing our pearl bracelets to remind us of our time here. We HIGHLY recommend Sibani Perle Bora Bora (and Yuriko).

Dear Guest, Thanks for your nice message. You made reference to the good spirit that reigns in our jewelries. This mindset belongs to the DNA of the house Sibani Pearls since its origins. Unpretentious, when I see what has become of the jewelry industry in French Polynesia, I can say that our company is an exception. This dynamic is embodied in our way of being and not published. We build a special relationship with our customer, which enables us to advise them in their purchases. A kind of family doctor of yesteryear. We do advise them with the jewelry we like and we are certain of the quality. Jewelry that we understand perfectly and would buy for ourselves. Yuriko is our shop manager and she will be very happy by your nice comment. We really hope you will enjoy your bracelets forever and please in any case of problem remember that all her pearls are lifetime guaranty. Best regards

I recently purchased a Tahitian pearl necklace at Sibani Perles in Bora Bora. After looking at many stores, I found a style I liked and the price was fair. They had a good selections of pearls set in silver which are still beautiful, but much more affordable. The sales person was very helpful and not too pushy as in some stores. I recommend that you take a look at what they have to offer.
