Verragio specializes in engagement rings and wedding bands of the highest quality and beauty, crafted to bring out the inner radiance of any diamonds. The exclusive Lumino Setting suspends the diamond, exposing all facets to light. It creates the perfect setting for any diamond.
Consisting of fashion forward designs while still maintaining a classic foundation, the Verragio Collection evokes a feeling of style transcendent of time.
Designer Barry Verragio explains: "A beautiful mounting should only enhance the beauty of a diamond in the same way a beautiful dress makes a woman even more beautiful." This philosophy is reflected in all Verragio rings. In his over 20 year career as a designer of fine jewelry for some of the most well known names in jewelry manufacturing, Barry Verragio has learned the value of craftsmanship and dedication to quality.
Each Verragio style is individually hand-crafted with the attention to detail and styling synonymous with the Verragio name.
Barry first learned the craft of creating jewelry as an apprentice. To enhance his natural designing abilities, Barry studied at the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. Having mastered ring design, Barry eventually paved his way to establishing his own company, based on the development of his exclusive setting technique.
Barry Verragio is the innovator and creator of the exclusive Lumino Setting, a revolutionary setting technique that suspends the stone, exposing all facets to light. Utilized in over 95% of Verragio styles, this setting technique truly makes each Verragio design as unique as the woman who wears it.
Barry's hands on approach with his retail establishments allows him first hand feedback as to exactly what today's consumer is looking for in an engagement ring. Being creatively involved in changing what is offered to fit changing consumer demand is what drives Barry's motivation today.
"When you see that type of reaction to a ring," Barry says, "You know that you have played a role in one of the most momentous occasions in their lives. You will forever be a part of their memories."
