The luxury brand of Verragio strictly deals with bridal jewelry. The founder was passionate about the value of lasting relationships, and his gift of Verragio wedding bands captures a life of love and marital bliss.
Journey of the Verragio Name
Fourteen year old Barry Verragio made his way from Russia to New York City where he worked as a bench jeweler and designer for other companies. That choice was based on a desire to work and create with his hands. Barry enrolled in the New York Fashion Institute and began creating his own designs.
Years later as a young adult, he created an engagement ring for the love of his life. His wife cherishes this original ring and Barry never duplicated her ring. However, he designed others based on the design concept of his wife’s treasured ring. Those designs were well received, and that is how his brand began gaining recognition in the luxury bridal jewelry world.
Verragio believes the center stone should be enhanced, not overwhelmed by the setting. That belief inspired him to create the Lumino setting for engagement rings. This setting suspends the center stone, opening all its facets to the light and dramatically enhancing the sparkle.
By 1996, Barry Verragio was ready to start his own business based on his designs and his proprietary Lumino Setting. He also felt he had found his niche in bridal jewelry. Even today, Barry Verragio is the force behind the company. He plays an active role and chooses to spend time around retailers and customers. He enjoys trunk shows and seeing how people respond to his designs.
The Verragio Philosophy For Wedding Bands
Verragio designs are heavily influenced by Italian and French art and architecture. Those influences are seen in the intricate decorative and flowing curves in his engagement rings and wedding bands. Old world charm and artisanship are incorporated into this modern jewelry.
Here are the core values of the Verragio process and culture:
- Create Designs That are Like No Other. That is the company motto. From the beginning, it has been the cornerstone of the business plan and the artistic approach.
- Focus on the enhancement of the center stone as the purpose of the setting. Barry Verragio compares this concept to a woman preparing for an evening out. She wants to be seen so she chooses a dress that will enhance her beauty rather than overwhelm it.
- Think of the multi-dimensional woman who will wear the ring. The ring should look stunning from the top and from the sides. Women have no sharp angles and her ring should not have them either. Her wedding band should have soft and smooth curves.
- Capture the joy of the event into the design of the wedding band. Barry Verragio tries to imagine the joy that will accompany the wedding and the promise that the wedding band represents. He sets out to capture meaning in each of his designs.
