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.

Shop Our Beautiful Collection of September’s Birthstone Jewelry

Napa Valley Jewelers

Padis Jewelry store has a great selection of sapphires, which is September’s birthstone.  The word sapphire comes from the Greek word “sappheiros” and means blue stone. However while blue may be the most well-known color of sapphires, the gemstones are made from any color of corundum except for red, which are rubies.

Blue sapphires got a lot of attention after the famous blue sapphire engagement ring that Princess Diana received from Prince Charles in 1981 but the stone has been around for centuries.  It was believed to protect its owners from envy and harm by the Ancient Greeks and Romans, and in the Middle Ages, the stones were worn by the clergy and thought to symbolize Heaven.

In addition to blue, fancy sapphires range in color from green, violet-blue, yellow, orange, pink and purple hued stones.  Sapphires are mainly mined in Sri Lanka, Ceylon, Burma (Myanmar), Thailand, Cambodia, Madagascar, Tanzania, Australia, and the U.S. (Montana).

The most famous blue sapphires were from the Kashmir region of India/Pakistan and mined over a hundred years ago.  Very few examples of Kashmir sapphires exist today and then mainly in museums or in photographs.  The stones have a beautiful cornflower blue color.  One 22.66 carat cushion-cut Kashmir sapphire set in a pendant surrounded by diamonds was sold in 2007 at auction for a record $3,064,000. While that breaks down to $135,000 per carat, and was a new record for a sapphire, some gemologists said it was far from the best example of a Kashmir sapphire but rather indicated the stone’s rarity.

While we may not carry Kashmir sapphires, we do have a stunning selection of sapphires that are a part of the Padis Signature Collection.  Visit our website to view our jewelry and for contact information.
