Padis Jewelry – Your Forevermark Experts

in the San Francisco Bay Area!

On the hunt for the perfect piece of diamond jewelry? Look no further than Padis Jewelry. With three of the top six Forevermark Diamond experts in the country, there is no more knowledgeable team! Vic, Valerie and Laurel, managers and long time members of the Padis Jewelry family, have all achieved Carat Club status with Forevermark in 2020, which highlights their expertise while assisting clients with selecting responsibly-sourced diamonds that provide the best quality, beauty and value. 

As part of the prestigious Carat Club, Padis team members were able to visit the country of Botswana to enhance their understanding of the journey of a diamond from mine to finger. As a part of the trip, they met with the First Lady of Botswana, Neo Jane Masisif, and they also got to experience and appreciate the socio-economic impact of each diamond mined in improving the livelihoods of communities in producer countries. 

Forevermark demonstrates values that transcend the finished product and its mining, making lasting contributions to mining communities through educational, medical and social initiatives and through actions taken to redress the environmental impact of mining. There are also dedicated programs for career development for women and education of children. 

With the these experts and their firsthand experience in Botswana, the largest selection of Forevermark in the San Francisco Bay Area and a new Forevermark location in the Bay Area East Bay – an area most of the Padis team calls home – clients can experience the exceptional collection of loose diamonds, engagement rings and fine jewelry all under one roof. 

Forevermark’s passion for diamonds is matched by their deep sense of connection to the natural world, which they are dedicated to protecting for future generations. Forevermark is committed to the preservation and protection of habitats, their species, and the wider natural world. 

In short, a Forevermark by Padis diamond is a diamond you can wear proudly. Padis Jewelry has an extensive selection of Forevermark fine jewelry for you to experience and try on, and we look forward to welcoming you to any of our five locations. 

We sincerely thank you for allowing us to be a part of your life’s most precious moments. Email us at or visit our website at to book your appointment either virtually or in person.
