Verragio jewelry is a well-known name in bridal fashion. Verragio engagement rings and wedding bands have a reputation for elegance and quality. Much less known is the romantic story of how this luxury company was started- with a ring the designer had made for his wife.
The Man Behind Verragio Jewelry
Barry Verragio began working towards his dream at the age of 14. As a young apprentice, he discovered his talent for jewelry design and he was committed to developing his skills, hands on. Years later, Barry enrolled at the New York Fashion Institute of Technology to learn the business side of his craft. With his apprenticeship complete and an education from FIT under his belt, Barry Verragio was well prepared to launch his own line of luxury bridal jewelry.
Verragio’s passion for engagement
The first ring that Barry Verragio designed was made for a very special lady. He presented this piece as he proposed to the woman who would later become his wife. Hearing the love of his life “say yes” to the first engagement ring he ever made empowered Barry Verragio to turn his passion into an empire. That first ring was the catalyst for many more designs that secured his place in the bridal jewelry industry.
For the past 20 years, Verragio wedding bands and engagement rings have been gaining in popularity. Verragio is now among the most successful bridal jewelry brands in the world.
The Verragio Mission
Each setting is unique in accordance with the Verragio belief that bridal jewelry should be personal and reflect the special personality of the recipient. As a designer, Barry Verragio believes that the possibilities are endless. “A ring like no other” is always the mission. Barry is motivated by the goal to create engagement rings and wedding bands that are unforgettable.
The Lumino Setting
Perhaps the most notable design feature is the Lumino Setting, which is used in 95% of Verragio jewelry. While this setting is beautifully designed, Verragio believes the center stones should always be enhanced as the focal point with no overwhelming elements that would distract from the center. The crown design of the Lumino is unlike any others. It allows a greater amount of light into the diamond by exposing more facets, further enhancing the sparkle.
Serving Customers Well
His hands-on approach with customers and listening to their input sets Barry Verragio apart from other jewelry designers. He likes the customer feedback so he can keep current with trends and serve his customers well. Verragio finds it gratifying to work closely with others in preparation for making important memories- like getting engaged and tying the knot.
