Barry Verragio put Verragio on the map when it comes to fine jewelry. His passion for designing beautiful pieces of jewelry is displayed in the personalized engagement and wedding bands that he creates. Everything is customizable and unique. In fact, Verragio is known for the intricacies and attention of his one of the kind designs. Everything from the lace detailing to the French beading and bezels -- these rings are expressive and made especially for one person.
Barry was introduced to the art of jewelry making as an apprentice, and developed a great desire to improve and refine his craft. He decided to enroll at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City so he can become a better designer. There he was introduced to concepts and mentors that would excite him to do new things. His drive and determination had helped him become quite the force in ring design. He later established his own company, Verragio. He based this company on the development and expertise he gained over the years. His main focus being an exclusive setting technique that he had discovered called Lumino setting. This technique suspends the stone in a way that creates an opportunity for it to be exposed to light on all facets. This allows the stone to be seen on all sides. Barry’s forward thinking paved the way for wedding and engagement rings that are truly stunning, cutting edge and unique.
He has been quoted as saying that one of his teachers inspired him with the idea that, “if you want to design a beautiful piece of jewelry, you need to close your eyes and envision a beautiful woman…she’s classy, she’s elegant, sophisticated and beautiful”. He goes on to say that, “every time you make a pencil line you ask yourself is it elegant, is it beautiful?” This intentional and purpose is revealed in the stunning collections that Verragio offers.
