Find a Wide Selection of A.JAFFE Designs at Padis

Jewelry Stores San Francisco

Padis Jewelry is proud to be a recognized elite retailer for A.JAFFE, which means we offer a more extensive design selection than other retailers.  Meticulously designed and masterfully crafted, A.JAFFE engagement rings can be customized to “represent the woman who wears it.”  The designs of the rings range from vintage to modern, antique to contemporary and are crafted to be admired from every angle.

A.JAFFE was established in 1892 when A. Abraham Jaffe set up a shop in downtown New York City and was one of the first jewelers to move his business to West 47th Street, which became an epicenter for the international jewelry world.  Every master jeweler working for the company has at least ten years’ experience and has been trained in the skills and knowledge passed down through the generations.  Each A.JAFFE ring takes up to 80 hours to create and includes the jeweler’s signature design, “a subtle squaring of the shank to minimize twisting and maximize comfort.”

All of the diamonds in an A.JAFFE design are mined in countries that fully participate in the Kimberley Process Certification scheme, which is the international system in place to eliminate the trade of “conflict diamonds.”  Also A.JAFFE jewelry is set in gold that is 100% nickel free to ensure they are hypo-allergenic.  Their 18 karat white gold is alloyed with 40% more palladium than other jewelers to ensure their rings remain bright white for many years to come.

Once you visit our website to browse our A.JAFFE collection, we invite you to come in to one of our three showrooms in downtown San Francisco or our store in St. Helena, CA in Napa Valley.  Jewelry this stunning must be seen in person.

Since 1974, Padis Jewelry has been a trusted source for buying exquisite certified loose diamonds, engagement rings and fine jewelry.  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.  If you are a lover of beautiful jewels, please schedule a visit to San Francisco and the Napa Valley’s finest jewelry showrooms.

Three Stone Engagement Rings at Padis

sapphire-diamond-ring

A popular option in engagement rings is three stone rings set with a center diamond and two outer diamonds or gemstones.  Many people chose the design as a way to symbolize the past, present and future with the center and biggest stone representing the present surrounded by the past and future.  Three stone rings are available in a wide range of styles from vintage to modern.

A traditional graduation is when the two outer stones total the carat weight of the center, middle stone such as a one carat center stone and two ½ carat side stones.  Another arrangement is for all three stones to be the same carat weight.  A slightly graduated three stone ring has a smaller degree of carat difference between the three stones.

Three stone rings offer the advantage of providing a lot of bling and can make smaller carat rings appear to be much bigger.  They also give you the opportunity to get a couple of different style stone cuts, add two colored gemstones to the ring and so forth.

We encourage you to visit the Padis Jewelry website to browse through our selection of three stone engagement rings from some of the top designers in the industry.  You will find names such a Simon G., Tacori, Scott Kay, Verragio, A. Jaffe and much more.   Our site highlights several Verragio Venetian rings including an 18K white gold pavé diamond three stone setting, featured with a 1 Ct round center stone (not included in price). Another completely different style is from the “Simply Tacori” collection that epitomizes contemporary, minimalist looks with heirloom flair.  The ring features an 18K white solitaire setting with pavé prongs.

After you are done browsing through our stunning collection, take the next step and set up an appointment to visit one of our three San Francisco showrooms.  Also if you plan to vacation in the Napa Valley area this summer, be sure to visit the Padis Jewelry Padis Romance store in St. Helena, CA.

The Precious Metals Used in Jewelry Settings

Picture1

Padis Jewelry offers a stunning collection of jewelry designs from the top names in the industry.  As such when you shop with us for your wedding rings or other fine jewelry you will find it set in several precious metals including gold, platinum and sterling silver.

In gold, the term karat is used to measure the gold content or purity of the gold and the most expensive is 24 karat, which is 100% pure.  Since it is less dense than lower karats of gold, it is soft and pliable making it unsuitable for most jewelry.

Many luxury designs are set in beautiful 18 karat gold, which contains .750 gold content (18/24) and 25% of other metals such as copper, nickel, zinc and others.  Less expensive but also commonly used in fine jewelry is 14 k gold consisting of .585 gold (14/24).  The other ten parts are typically five parts copper and five parts silver.  White gold contains at least one white metal such as zinc, manganese or palladium.  It is also treated with rhodium to give it luster and its white look.  Typically 4% silver and 21% copper is added to 18 k rose gold to give it a rose color.

The rarest (30 times rarer than gold) and most expensive precious metal used in jewelry settings is platinum.  The metal is 95% pure and will not tarnish or fade and also provides a brilliant silvery-white luster to beautifully reflect the radiance of diamonds.  Jewelry made of platinum is stamped PT or plat in the United States.

Silver is the most inexpensive of the precious metals commonly used in jewelry and is estimated to be approximately 1/50 the price of gold.  As pure silver is very soft, most silver jewelry is alloyed with copper and must contain a minimum of 925 parts silver for every 1000 parts of material and is marked 925 or sterling 925.  Visit the Padis Jewelry website to browse our gorgeous collection of jewelry or to get contact information to set up an appointment to visit one of our showrooms.
