And the winner is… Padis Jewelry Voted Best of the Bay!

More than 100,000 nominations were submitted, and 140,000 votes cast for The Best of the Bay Area 2024 -- and your very own family owned and operated Padis Jewelry came out on top in the category of Best Jewelry Store.

This is the inaugural year for the award program sponsored by the San Francisco Chronicle’s online news site, SF Gate, to honor the Bay Area’s best institutions, and it comes while Padis Jewelry is celebrating 50 years in business.

“We’re so honored to be voted by San Francisco and Bay Area locals as the best jewelry store in the San Francisco Bay Area,” says Alexis Padis, President of Padis Jewelry. “We’ve won some awards over the past 50 years, but the Best of the Bay Area means more because it comes from consumers and our clients who have recognized the special experience that we work so hard every day to create.”

She continues, “We aim to have every single person who walks in the door feeling like family when they walk out. There’s no pressure when you come to visit - just a relaxed and welcoming environment where you can gather the information you need to make the right decision when it comes to buying something special.”

Padis also points out that many of the staff at Padis Jewelry have worked there for over 30 years and are diamond experts who are also experts at prioritizing the client experience with a commission-free shopping environment.

“Ever since my dad Steve started the business 50 years ago selling jewelry on Telegraph Avenue in between classes as a student at Berkeley, our family’s mission has been to provide integrity, value and transparency,” Padis adds. “So, it’s very rewarding to see those efforts recognized.”

Even today, Steve Padis hand-selects the entire stock of inventory of responsibly sourced diamonds that you’ll find across their five showrooms. In fact, there are thousands of conflict-free diamonds in stock with prices clearly marked. And because there are gemologists and jewelers on site, you can view and select your diamond on the spot without weeks of waiting like you’ll find at many jewelry stores.
