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.

M. Sibani is amazing when it comes to choosing a pearl. I picked one pendant where I liked the setting and the color. From that he chose many others for me to look at. He helped me try them on and gave honest and diplomatic advice as to color and size based on my skin tone. The first pearl I... More

We were guests on the Windstar cruise in early March and attended Monsieur Sibani's presentation onboard whilst anchored in Vaitape, Bora Bora. It was very refreshing to his passion and commitment towards the Tahitian pearls. The presentation was very detailed, engaging and enlightening. It was a delight to see his eyes light up, when he spoke about the pearls. The... More

While visiting Bora Bora on the MS Paul Gaugin, I visited the Sibani Pearl Store in Bora Bora. Their selection of pearls was wonderful but more importantly, the girls in the shop were knowledgeable, helpful and oh so patient when looking at pearls and deciding what to purchase! They wanted us to LOVE what we bought and looking at loose... More

My friend and I heard Mr. Sibani's presentation on our Windstar Cruise the end of February/early March 2017. It was most informative and taught us so much about the pearl business! Because of his teachings, we were able to walk into other stores in Bora Bora and ask intelligent questions. We even found one shop that still did the x-ray... More
