Not Sure You Still Love Your Engagement Ring?

Diamond Store

A recent Glamour article says the 2018 engagement ring motto is that “anything goes.”   They explain that what were once unusual stone choices for bridal jewelry, such as trillion, marquise, and pear shapes are now beginning to be trendy.  Another new sophisticated look is using natural Fancy Grey diamonds, which are far rarer than yellow or brown diamonds although typically priced in that range.

Other trends include unusual cuts such as a thinly cut diamond known as a portrait-cut, or a rose-cut stone that is flat on the bottom with a dome-shaped top.  Several of last year’s trends continue to be strong including geometric silhouettes and mixed-metal rings.

When a couple is drawn to an unusual styled engagement ring, they may worry their taste could change down the road but jewelry consultants say there is no need to worry.  If you love the ring now, get it and enjoy it.  If later on, you do not feel the same about it, you can easily have the ring reset.  If fact it is not uncommon for couples to re-design their engagement ring in celebration of an important anniversary or other reasons.

If your original engagement ring now seems too traditional and you would like something with a more modern edge to it, or perhaps the other way around, Padis Jewelry can help you to choose a ring that more closely suits your lifestyle.  With a large collection of top name designers such as Tacori, Verragio, Gabriel NY, Jeff Cooper Designs, Ritani, Forevermark, Henri Daussi, Sylvie, Simon G., and Scott Kay among others, we can help you find the perfect ring.

At one of our special Padis Jewelry showroom events, longtime customers Bill and Samantha Lee (Bill purchased Samantha’s engagement ring at Padis eight years ago) came in with their children to enjoy the festive atmosphere and snacks.  It was during this visit that they entered the Grammy trip contest.  Imagine the family’s surprise when their name was drawn as the Grand Prize Winner!

Judy Padis handled most of the logistical planning for Bill and Samantha, who had not been to New York since before they were married.  The couple stayed at the Grand Hyatt and had a chance to visit Grand Central Station, have an intimate dinner at a charming NYC restaurant, the Osteria Laguna, and to do some sightseeing.  As Bill says, “It’s an once-in-a-lifetime kind of win.”

Beautiful Jewelry + Exceptional Customer Service

Jewelry Repair San Francisco

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.

Shop Our Collection of Brilliant-cut Diamonds

Bay Area Jewelers

At Padis Jewelry, we know many of our customers often confuse the term the “cut” of a diamond with the “shape.”  A diamond’s shape refers to the appearance of the stone such as round, princess, emerald, asscher, marquise, oval, radiant, and cushion.  The cut of a diamond refers to the proportions including depth and width and the symmetry or uniformity of the facets, which controls the diamond’s brilliance as well as its ability to reflect light through the top of the diamond.

Before a diamond is cut, the stone is evaluated to determine its best possible cut in order to maximize clarity, color, and carat weight.  The most popular shape of diamonds is the round brilliant-cut as it maximizes the diamond’s ability to reflect light and brightness better than other fancy shapes.  In fact, almost 75% of all diamonds sold today are round brilliant-cut.  The round brilliant-cut typically cost more than comparable cushion, princess, asscher and emerald shaped diamonds as more of the stone is lost in the cutting process resulting in a fairly low yield/high demand for the stone.

According to the Gemological Institute of American, the 57 or 58-facet round brilliants of today are the result of a variation of facet sizes and proportions that have evolved throughout many years.  This includes “table size, crown height, length of the lower half facets, total depth, and culet size.”  Round brilliant-cut diamonds with 58 facets have a culet, which is the small area at the bottom of a diamond’s pavilion or tip that is cut off and counted as one of the facets.  The stone is considered a higher grade if it does not have a culet or only has a very small, or medium-sized one.  A larger culet affects the appearance of the diamond and can appear as if the diamond has a hole in it.

Please visit our website to see our collection of round brilliant-cut diamonds.  While you are there, set up a visit to one of our beautiful San Francisco showrooms.
