We understand you want to make smart decisions when buying jewelry. This is why it is important to shop with a jeweler who has not only been in business for a number of years but has an excellent reputation. Family-owned Padis Jewelry has both. Steve Padis started the business in 1974 and it is considered to be the place to go to in the Bay Area for excellent values and an outstanding inventory.
We are also proud to be one of only 5% of jewelers in the country who are accredited members of the American Gem Society (AGS). The AIG is the country’s preeminent jewelry trade organization and is dedicated to consumer protection. The membership guarantees that AIG accredited jewelers strictly adhere to the highest standards of measurement and quality.
Furthermore, several of our non-commission sales consultants are GIA Graduate Gemologists and our showrooms have two of them available at all times. This means you receive reliable, educated information about the stones you are buying as our Gemologists are trained in the GIA grading system and the 4Cs used to accurately rate the value of diamonds. The GIA established the “4Cs” (color, clarity, cut, and carat weight) as well as the International Diamond Grading System™ in the 1940s and are still the standards used today.
In addition all of our certified loose diamonds over 0.40 carats come with an independent grading report that assesses the stone’s overall quality and authenticity. We invite you to browse our online inventory and then set up an appointment to come in to one of our showrooms in downtown San Francisco. Also we have a store in St. Helena in Napa Valley.
Padis Jewelry, a family-owned business, has been a trusted source for buying exquisite certified loose diamonds, engagement rings and fine jewelry since 1974. We are one of the only jewelers in the area that offers such an exclusive selection of top names in the industry as well as such a large inventory. For the opportunity to view one of San Francisco and the Napa Valley’s most impressive collections, please contact us to schedule a visit.
