Sales Terms and Policy

Sales terms

After you've made your choice, you must register on my website to finish your order. This can be done quickly and will allow you to:

- Keep track of your previous orders and print out an invoice.

- Create an address book which enables you to send your order to another address, so that gifts can be sent to loved ones.

- Benefit from special offers and prices available only to professionals and my best clients.

Only correctly validated orders can be honored: You should receive an email confirming this with your invoice and a photo of each item ordered.

Unless otherwise indicated, the jewels are only available in unique pieces.

Immediately after your order is validated, you can verify your account and print your invoice.

For confidentiality reasons, no bill will be included with the order.

Depending on the value of your order you will be able to select a gift to add for free to your cart: don't forget to make your choice because it will then be impossible to send it to you.

Classification of Pearls

Each pearl is unique and to guarantee that you will always be satisfied each jewel is individually photographed.

The jewel that you will receive is the one you saw in the picture on the ad and its immediate availability is guaranteed.

Each one of my Tahitian Pearls is delivered with its Certificate of Classification and Authenticity in accordance with the Polynesian law (DELIBERATION n° 2005-42 of February 4, 2005).

This certificate guarantees the origin of my Tahitian Pearls, and specifies its characteristics.

This certificate is also in accordance with the criteria of the Gemological Institute of America, where I graduated from the training course GIA - Pearls Graduate

Paying for your jewelry

There are several methods which you can choose from to pay for your purchases: Credit card (Visa & MasterCard), a check in Euros, a bank transfer to my bank account in France or by Paypal.

Visa, Mastercard & American Express

This is the easiest and fastest way to pay on my site.

Your payment will be perfectly safe and needs no middleman. You can make your payment directly to the Bank C.I.C. site, who will then inform me of the transaction.

Your banking information will not be transmitted to me, and will not be circulated on the internet without being encrypted.

Bank Transfer in Euros

I accept Bank Transfers only in Euros, made out to “Taaroa Bijoux” and to the account at the Bank C.I.C., whose details will be given to you at the end of the transaction.

Paying by Check

I accept checks only in Euros made out to “Taaroa Bijoux”, payable only from French banks.

In order to speed up the acceptance of your order, I will provide you with an address in France where you can send your payment check.

If your order is for 400 Euros or more, you can pay using two checks, and if it is for 750 Euros or more, three checks.


Paypal is also an acceptable means of payment, once your Paypal account is verified.


As soon as we receive payment, the transaction is considered as accepted and your order is prepared for shipping within 24 to 48 hours (excluding weekends and public holidays).

Certain jewelry items such as rings, require mounting, and this could take an additional 24 to 72 hours.

All shipments are sent by registered mail with an on-line tracking number and insurance included.

The typical leadtime for receipt is 10 to 15 days for Metropolitan France, 15 to 25 days for Europe and up to 25 days for other countries.

You shall always be informed by e-mail of the preparation and then the shipping of your order and the on-line link for tracking your shipment on the website of La Poste.

At any moment, you can consult your account to know the status of an order or to find the on-line tracking number.

However, the return of the merchandise must be identical to that of its delivery, (by registered mail, insured for the value of the jewelry), with no deterioration of the jewelry, and in its original packaging.

Please contact me before sending the jewelry to get the return address.

Note: Bare pearls and batches of pearls cannot be returned nor exchanged if you have chosen to pierce them.
