Exquisite Right Hand Rings

cropped-diamond-store.jpg

On trend and more popular than ever, a right hand ring may be purchased to mark an important milestone or event, or just because the person fell in love with a design.  Also, more and more women are spending their own hard-earned money to make significant jewelry purchases that include statement diamond or gemstone rings to wear on their right hand.   In the US, as well as other countries, the left ring finger is generally reserved for a ring that signifies love and commitment, while wearing a diamond ring on the right hand makes it clear that it is not an engagement ring.

In the past, such rings were often referred to as “cocktail rings.”  The Jewelry Editor explains, “While the term ‘right hand ring’ is a relatively new one, the idea of wearing a ring on the right hand to signify a woman’s economic independence has its roots in the original cocktail rings of the 1920s.”  We typically think of right-hand rings as being more flamboyant and are often worn on a woman’s right ring finger or index finger.  Other style trends include stacking several small rings on one finger or wearing one on each finger.  Some women also wear anniversary “eternity bands” on their right ring finger.

In 2003, a ‘Raise your Right Hand’ campaign was introduced by DeBeers that targeted women with enough money to buy a diamond ring for themselves.  The campaign used the catchy line of “Your left hand rocks the cradle. Your right hand rules the world.”  The campaign was an overwhelming success as it increased sales of non-bridal diamond rings by 15 percent.

If you are interested in an exquisite right hand ring, we invite you to visit the Padis Jewelry website to learn more about our San Francisco showrooms.  We carry the largest collection of loose diamonds and gemstones in Northern California along with a wide selection of the most luxurious brand names in the industry.

Padis Jewelry, a family-owned business, has been a trusted source for buying exquisite certified loose diamonds, engagement rings and fine jewelry since 1974.  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.  For the opportunity to view one of San Francisco’s most impressive collections, please contact us to schedule at visit.

As one customer wrote, “We knew we wanted to get married and thought it would be fun to pick out the engagement ring together. We needed to find a place that could guarantee the ring we were getting was conflict-free, which meant a lot to us.”  She describes how accommodating their jewelry consultant was and how he took the time to listen to their needs and answer all of their questions.   “He was so patient, easy going, knowledgeable and really worked with us and our budget. He not only made sure we got the best quality diamond for our price range, but he also made sure the mood was celebratory as well.”

Another happy customer took the time to gush about her and her husband’s shopping experience with us.  Wanting a Verragio ring design, they discovered that Padis Jewelry was the only well-reviewed store in Northern California that carried Verragio rings.  Her husband drove three hours from Tahoe to San Francisco where he worked with jewelry consultants who helped him to get the ring sized and a diamond set within a very tight deadline.  His wife says he came back home “so knowledgeable about diamonds and kept telling me about the 4 C’s.”   The couple was so pleased with the experience they came back and got their wedding rings from the same consultant.

We invite you to come and visit one of Padis Jewelry showrooms for a stress-free, enjoyable shopping experience.  Our friendly and knowledgeable jewelry consultants will work within your budget and style preferences to help you find the perfect piece of jewelry.  Please visit our website to set up an appointment.

7 Ways to Upgrade Your Engagement Ring

755-01248

There are many brides who, after rediscovering their diamond engagement ring from their jewelry box years later, feel the same wonder, excitement and love as they did when they first set their eyes on it.  And then there are brides who don’t.

Whether your taste or your situation that has changed over the years, if you are looking for means to upgrade your engagement ring, you’ve come to the right place at Padis Jewelry.

You may have fallen head over heels in love the moment you first saw your engagement ring, but if you’ve had a change of heart, you don’t need to feel ashamed or uneasy. Our preferences change all the time. With so many new trends and intricate designs for engagement rings today, you may feel the urge to change it up a bit.

This is a ring you are wearing everyday as a symbol of love and devotion to your partner, you should love it! Here are some ways to bring the spark back.

Go For A Bigger Stone:

With a few little adjustments, setting a new bigger diamond is one of the easiest ways to make your diamond engagement ring more noticeable and attention-grabbing. If your setting allows for it, our jeweler can simply set a bigger diamond on the band, making it sparkle even more than before.

Add A Set Of Complimentary Diamonds On The Shoulder:

If the main stone isn’t the issue and the bland broad shoulder is just not appealing enough, just add a band of smaller cut diamonds to get that heavier looking feeling off the ring. The detailed new band will make any plain-looking diamond engagement ring more intricate and exquisite.

A Single or Double Halo Will Do the Trick:

If a big-sized center stone is out of your budget, you can simply make it appear bigger by adding a halo of small cut diamonds to encapsulate the center diamond. It can make the stone look upwards of 20% larger and also serves as a natural “bumper” to protect your center diamond from damage.

Change the band:

You can always opt for a band change by either eliminating or adding more twists to your plain looking diamond engagement ring. Not only will it give the center stone more definition, it will also give the ring a whole new look.

Change the Ring’s Setting:

Many a times, the setting on the ring is too impractical. The end result is that it sits in a cushioned box on your dressing table. If ring sits up too high, it gets tangled in your hair and snagged on those clothes; too low and it shadows the intricacy of the ring. Get it fixed with just a few adjustments that we will be happy to make.

Change The Shape Of The Stone:

Not a big fan the shape of your center stone? Feel like everyone around you has the same cut? Perhaps consider a new shape!  A different shape will change the overall look of the ring and certain stone shapes compliment your fingers and hands well.

Set Side Stones:

If a little enhancement or bling is all that you need, opting for smaller side stones is the perfect way to do that. When opting for side stones, you can either go with trillions, princess cuts, round stones, tapered baguettes etc. Traditionally, the three stones in an engagement ring represent “Past, Present, and Future,” a nice way to tie in the sentiment and span of your relationship.

So whether you’re upgrading your own ring or even updating grandma’s ring, consider these options and you’ll surely be happy with the outcome! It can be difficult to let go of something with so much personal value attached to it, but Padis Jewelry can help guide you toward the best option for what to do with your piece, and make sure you are well educated in all the different options.  Don’t hesitate to visit us at the store, give us a call, or shoot us an email with questions.

Is Your Style Classic, Modern or Uniquely Your Own?

sapphire-diamond-ring

The shape of an engagement ring is sure to say something about the woman wearing it.  One of the most iconic and timeless choices as well as the most popular is the round solitaire, which looks as stunning today as it did on your grandmother’s hand fifty years ago.  While a round solitaire can be subtle and understated, it is unlikely to ever go out of style.

This classic diamond engagement ring was first introduced in 1886 by Charles Tiffany.  The setting was designed to elevate and showcase a round diamond above the band of the ring, and was held in place with six evenly spaced claw-shaped prongs.  Prior to this time, most rings were extremely intricate and had very detailed designs so a simple, precious metal band that allowed a diamond to sparkle to its fullest potential was considered revolutionary.

As the stone is the focal point in a solitaire, it is important to buy the highest grade round brilliant cut stone you can afford to ensure your ring has the maximum sparkle.  Padis Jewelry’s consultants remind customers that the larger the diamond is, most likely it has more inclusions.  Also as it is larger, the inclusions are typically more visible than on a smaller diamond so it is better to go with a smaller but better grade stone.

A close second in popularity to the round brilliant cut is a princess shaped diamond.  Almost matching the fire and brilliance, the princess cut was created in 1980 and is the most common fancy cut diamond.  The square or rectangular shaped stone is a mix of diamond cuts and has a profile of an inverted pyramid with four beveled sides.  It can have anywhere from 53 to 144 facets.  Emerald and Asscher shaped diamonds are step cuts consisting of rectilinear facets arranged parallel to the girdle.  This produces a mirror effect that plays with the light and dark planes of the cut.

Please schedule a visit to one of Padis Jewelry’s beautiful showrooms to see our diamond collection up close and in person to really appreciate the different stones.  Also remember if you are traveling this summer to Napa Valley, visit Padis Romance in St. Helena, CA.
