Didier Gregoire, owner of Pili Pili Ethnics is a dealer of antique traditional ethnic jewelry and adornments, and also a dealer of contemporary jewelry from a few Asian designers and creators.

In his early twinty’s Didier started to travel around the world and became fascinated by the power of ornaments and jewelry of tribal people where adornment means a lot more than just “good looking”. Esspecially India and The Himalaya’s kept his attention.

Didier has been collecting ethnic jewelry since the late 70’s and started his business in 1996. In 1999 he opened his gallery in the medieval center of the city of Ghent in Belgium.

None of the items presented by Pili Pili Ethnics is mass produced. Each piece is unique and entirely made by hand.
