Welcome To South Sea Legend
I'm Sunny Chen, owner and designer. Thank you for visiting South Sea Legend by Pearl Oasis. Our catalog offers outstanding prices for beautiful south sea pearl jewelry and I hope you will spend some time browsing our catalog items. Our site is not just for selling our products. We have much information about cultured south sea pearls, its history, and how to best care for south sea pearl jewelry. We want you to learn how romantic, unique and wonderful south sea pearls are compared to other gems. Please feel free to e-mail or phone me with your questions about our jewelry and general questions about pearls.
Our business is located in Alexandria, Virginia USA, just a few miles from Washington, DC. South Sea Legend is a division of Pearl Oasis and was started in 2000. I began our parent company, Pearl Oasis, in 1997. Prior to opening Pearl Oasis, I owned jewelry stores in Georgetown and downtown Washington DC USA.
We have been praised by our customers for the excellent quality of our items and their outstanding price. Our customers also have complemented us on our speedy delivery. Don't take our word for this. Read some of the comments we have received at Ebay from winners of Pearl Oasis auctions.
Some customers have wondered how our prices can be so low. We are a direct importer of loose south sea pearls. We sell only through the Internet. That lets us keep our overhead very low. Final, we have developed proprietary computer programs to automatically handle much of the order fulfillment. That cuts our costs even more. That's why we have the best values you'll find anywhere.
When you place an order, your information is kept secure. We will never share or sell it. When you pay by credit card using our secure server, you can rest assured that the information will be safe. Our server is own, and operated by us and is physically located at our place of business. In addition to industry standards for secure servers, we have adopted best practice security for your payment information. When we access your information for invoicing, we access it through a secure server too. Many sites on the Internet offer secure servers for payment but then access your information over insecure connection. That defeats the security.
Some Internet jewelry sites don't tell you the complete truth about pearl jewelry. Here are a few things to keep in mind when shopping.
We suggest you take a look at the Federal Trade Commission's consumer guide for jewelry buying, All That Glitters. If you want to see the full Federal Trade Commission's guidelines for the Jewelry Industry, look at Guides for the Jewelry, Precious Metals, and Pewter Industries .
Our catalog shows list prices for our items, and we want you to know what we mean by this term. For items we make, the list price is calculated by taking our material cost and added reasonable Washington, DC labor costs and overhead costs for a brick and mortar jewelry store. For items we buy from wholesale suppliers, the list price is the suggested selling price marked on the item by the wholesale supplier. In some cases, if we believe the suggested list price is too high, we will set a lower price from the marked price. We will never set a higher price to the wholesaler's suggested price. We also monitor the prices of similar items listed on QVC and Bluenile on the Internet. We also monitor prices of similar items selling in Washington, DC stores such as Macy's and Zales. Because there are no standards for pearl quality, price comparison between products we sell and products sold at the above establishments is very difficult. We urge you to compare our prices with your neighborhood jewelry store and on-line jewelry stores. One of the advantages of shopping on the Internet is the ability to quickly compare prices and we urge you to compare.
Our return policy is very simple. If you are not satisfied with the merchandise, we will be glad to refund your money. Claims for refunds must be made within 30 days from purchase of merchandise. There is a 10% restocking fee if returned after 30 days from purchase. No returns are acceptable after 60 days from purchase. You are responsible for return shipping costs.

All returns must be shipped in a crush proof box to prevent damage in shipping. Failure to return both the inner and outer jewelry box will result in a $5.00 box fee. Returned items must be sent back by insured mail covering the full value in the same condition as when originally shipped and must include a copy of our receipt. Shipping and handling charges are not refundable. Gift Wrapping cost is not refundable. Special orders are subjected to 15% restocking fee.
We want you to be a happy and informed Pearl Oasis customer and we will work to get and keep your business.
