When you are a customer of Padis Jewelry, we promise to make your visit with us as stress-free and as enjoyable as possible while you shop for a gift, engagement ring or something for yourself. We start by only offering the finest jewelry from some of the world’s top designers and an inventory of approximately 10,000 exquisite loose diamonds (any stone we sell over 0.40 carats is accompanied with an independent grading report). Padis then provides a knowledgeable non-commissioned sales staff to ensure you get the most reliably, educated information about the jewelry you are thinking of purchasing.
Another reason why it is smart to shop with Padis is we have two GIA Graduate Gemologists on staff at all times. So why is this important? The GIA (Gemological Institute of America Inc.), established in 1931, is the “world’s foremost authority on diamonds, colored stones, and pearls.” As such, the nonprofit institute is recognized as a leading source of knowledge, standards, and education in gems and jewelry. They also established the “4Cs” of diamonds (color, clarity, cut, and carat weight) in the 1940’s.
As part of the GIA Graduate Gemologists program, students receive comprehensive training on diamonds and colored stones. During the course, they are introduced to both technical and practical skills including the 4Cs, the International Diamond Grading System, and the Colored Stone Grading System. This means Padis’ GIA Graduate Gemologists have first-hand experience with the grading systems as well as the equipment and procedures used to identify and grade different types of gemstones and can offer educated information on our stones.
We encourage you visit our website to set up an appointment at one of our San Francisco showrooms. If you are a returning customer and have an established relationship with one of our jewelry consultants, you can contact them directly from a link on our home page.
Padis Jewelry, a family-owned business, has been a trusted source for buying exquisite certified loose diamonds, engagement rings and fine jewelry since 1974.
