Jewelry Stores San Francisco

While we think Padis Jewelry offers one of the most exquisite collections of jewelry, the most competitive prices in the area, and an enjoyable, relaxed shopping experience, we feel our customers say it best.  We encourage you to take the time to visit our facebook page and read what some of our actual customers have said about their Padis Jewelry experience.

As one recent customer explains, her Padis jewelry consultant was not only very patient but made it a “lovely experience.”  She adds that the consultant, Laurel, helped them to find the perfect wedding bands and to stay within budget.  Another customer relates how she saw styles she had not seen anywhere else and appreciated the huge selection of loose diamonds.  She writes, “Alexis was so sweet and fun to work with! We loved the champagne and the no-pressure atmosphere, and can’t wait to go back for our wedding bands!”

We also love the story of a man’s future in-laws who encouraged him to go to Padis Jewelry and to meet with jewelry consultant, Kim.  His fiancée’s grandparents shopped at Padis over thirty years ago and her parents worked with Kim to buy their engagement and wedding rings.  He explains that after meeting with Kim, they found the PERFECT ring.  As he says, “just ask my fiancée. who says she wouldn’t have been able to find a better ring. It was exactly what she was looking for and she wasn’t even there!”  Oh and did we mention that he flew in from Denver just to shop at Padis?

Diamonds are Still the Most Popular Choice for Engagement Rings

 

hra_ring_wg_fmr00106cu_frontv2[1]

The first ever diamond engagement ring is believed to have been commissioned by the Archduke Maximillian of Austria in 1477 for his betrothed, Mary of Burgundy.  The ring was designed in the shape of an “M,” and fashioned from a series of thin, flat diamonds.  The European aristocracy and nobility soon followed suit by giving diamond rings to their intended brides.

Today it is estimated that nearly three-quarters of first-time American brides receive a diamond engagement ring.  A 2014 report from Bain & Company suggests that “China, India and the U.S. will drive the majority of growth in diamond-jewelry consumption over the next decade, in part because of the growing interest in diamond engagement rings in India and China, and a stable interest in the U.S.” In 2016, The Knot’s annual Real Weddings Study found the average cost of an engagement ring was $6,163.

If you want to save some money on the cost of an engagement ring, the American Gem Society (AGS) recommends that you do not sacrifice the cut of the diamond as that is what attributes to the diamond’s brilliance.  Rather they say get the “best cut you can afford, but maybe skimp a bit on clarity and color if you need; slight inclusions (or flaws) and faint coloration will not be visible just by looking at the diamond, and will result in substantial savings.”

At Padis Jewelry we not only carry a large selection of engagement rings from many of the industry’s top luxury brands but also have an inventory of more than 10,000 loose diamonds on hand at any one time.  Moreover we are committed to only buying and selling conflict free diamonds.  Please visit our website to learn more about Padis Jewelry.
