Fine Jewelers in San Francisco Since 1974

jewelers in san francisco If you wish to view an exceptional collection from one of most reputable jewelers in San Francisco, look no further.  Padis Jewelry has been a trusted name in the industry since 1974, specializing in loose certified diamonds, engagement rings, and fine jewelry. Family-owned and operated, Padis Jewelry has grown to include three showrooms in San Francisco with a fourth location in St. Helena, CA.

We Own All of Our Inventory

Unlike most online retailers who source "lists" of diamonds to feature on their sites, Padis Jewelry owns its entire stock of high-quality, certified responsibly-sourced diamonds, all of which have been hand-selected by Steve Padis himself. He inspects each stone for the top value and beauty, and every diamond over 0.40 carats is accompanied with an independent grading report assessing overall quality and authenticity. We send our diamonds to the most trusted and reliable diamond grading laboratories in the industry, which include only the United States divisions of AGS, Forevermark, GIA and EGL USA, all of which are trusted and accredited within the industry.

Non-Commissioned Jewelry Advisors

In addition, our non-commissioned diamond experts are here for you; their goal is to match the right piece of fine jewelry with its wearer. In each showroom, you can view the most sought-after collections of top tier jewelry designers and watchmakers in a serene, welcoming showroom. When you visit, you will find that the experience is distinct from most other jewelry retailers- we have the largest selection of rings and diamonds in all of California, and our entire inventory is on display, with prices clearly marked.

Padis Jewelry has two GIA Graduate Gemologists on staff at all times, and is proud to be an accredited member of the American Gem Society (AGS). Only 5% of jewelers in the country achieve this status, so our clients are guaranteed that their purchases strictly adhere to the highest standards of measurement and quality.

Carrying Top Luxury Jewelry Designers

We are proud to be San Francisco's exclusive authorized retailer for top luxury brands Tacori (with whom we have a Platinum partnership), Forevermark, A. Jaffe, Ritani, Verragio, Gabriel & Co., Henri Daussi, Michael M., Simon G., Scott Kay, Breitling, TAG Heuer, Michele Watch, and many more!

We aim to make sure every person that walks into our store feels like a part of the Padis family. We hope to be your family jeweler for every occasion.

Locally Owned, Family Owned 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 to offer an exclusive selection of some top names in the industry as well as to carry such a large inventory.  Padis invites you to arrange a visit to our showrooms to see our stunning collection from one of the best jewelers in San Francisco.

 Steve Padis began his career as a jeweler during his senior year at the University of California, Berkeley, by stringing beads and selling them on Telegraph Avenue. By the time he graduated in the early 1970's, he had met his future wife, Judy (from whom he purchased findings), and had ventured into sterling silver, turquoise jewelry, and gold chain.

It was not long after, in 1974, he found his true passion for precious metals and diamonds with the inception of the Steve Padis Jewelry brand.  We have now grown to include four locations and are proud to have earned a reputation as one of the finest jewelers in San Francisco. Now, some 40 years later, Steve's passion for jewelry has become his life's work. Padis Jewelry is a well-respected family-owned business operated by Steve, his wife, Judy, and their daughter, Alexis.

For years, jewelry buyers have had very few options. Most customers are forced to choose between high-priced jewelry stores, and the dubious claims of "factory-direct" retailers. At Padis Jewelry, we believe there's a smarter alternative. As one of only a handful of jewelers that buy directly from the source, we offer you the finest stones available anywhere at the best prices.

What separates us from other jewelers? Namely, we own our inventory. This means we always have at least 10,000 diamonds (and tens of thousands of other pieces of jewelry) in stock. Just as important, our diamonds come with an independent grading report from US based labs including the GIA, AGS, and Forevermark, allowing you to shop with complete confidence.
