About

PHILOSOPHY
At TARBAY we create pieces inspired by women from around the world. Ornaments created in a way that each of us can find our own balance and reflect the best of our essence while wearing them.

WHAT DO WE DO?
We tell stories with each collection we launch through limited edition jewelry, handbags and shoes. Stories fed by the experiences of our followers in different aspects of their lives: art, literature, poetry, gastronomy, nature, travels, photography, family and friends, profession, personal growth, philanthropy, and even dreams.

TARBAY JEWELRY
Our jewelry is feminine, timeless and sophisticated. We work with 18K gold, 14K laminated gold, silver, pearls, precious and semi-precious gems that come from the Venezuelan Amazon and from the world’s most exotic places. The pearls, a characteristic element of the Island of Margarita, adorn the majority of our jewelry conferring texture and sophistication. All of our jewelry is handmade, with a skilled craftsmanship that brings out art value and exclusivity to each one of our creations.

TARBAY HANDBAGS
We make classic and conceptual handbags, filled with details and design, authentic collectible pieces. Each is handcrafted with natural leather and alternative materials which make them light and easy-to-wear.

TARBAY SHOES
Our shoes highlight femininity and streamline the silhouette. Always focused on comfort, handcrafted with natural leather.

BACKGROUND
Sisters Marta and Ana Sofia Tarbay are the founders of TARBAY. They grew up in the Island of Margarita always in contact with nature and sea. Since they were little, their parents encouraged them to appreciate art and to travel, which helped them develop a sense of style at a very young age. In 2002 the brand TARBAY was born as mean to express both their passion for precious gems inherited from their grandparents and their love for the island that watched them grow. At TARBAY we develop an alternative approach to traditional jewelry, combining precious gems and laminated metals into handcrafted pieces of jewelry that are unique, versatile, affordable, and with an universal character. This philosophy has given us the opportunity to expand our product lines to include shoes and handbags. Women from around the world are the inspiration behind each of our pieces. We want our followers to connect with us through their hearts and to feel a sensation of wellbeing every time they wear one of our products.

We believe in the importance of helping all the communities that support the growth of our brand. Throughout the years we have counted on a group of women in the Island of Margarita that meticulously handcraft each piece of jewelry. At TARBAY, we emphasize on the artistic development of new designers, and through collaborations with fresh talent we want to expand the brand’s reach to new frontiers around the world.

Today, our followers can experience the brand through different points of contact: our online boutique (www.tarbay.com), TARBAY boutiques in Venezuela and USA, and TARBAY “corners” and wholesale representatives around the world. TARBAY is a community of creative and creators that will continue to grow and keep on providing unforgettable experiences.
