Verragio’s Design Philosophy
Verragio’s design philosophy is resolutely concentrated on crafting beautiful, high-quality settings that enhance the overall appearance of the ring, rather than producing an overpowering presence.
Regardless of how bold, ornate or detailed the setting is, Verragio makes certain the center diamond is always the prime focus. Their artisanal, handcrafted settings are there to emphasize and magnify the beauty of the ring as a whole.
Verragio was founded by Barry Verragio in 2005, but the story dates back decades prior to when Barry became a jewelry maker’s apprentice at the young age of 14. After many years as an apprentice, Barry’s passion and understanding of the jewelry market flourished. When his apprenticeship ended, he decided to enroll at the Fashion Institute of Technology to continue developing his skills.
During his time at FIT in New York City, Barry learned from some of the world’s most prominent leaders in the jewelry industry, such as Tiffany & Co’s Maurice Galley. With the guidance of Maurice Galley, he started creating his own stunning engagement rings and bridal jewelry designs.
By the early 1990s, Barry Verragio accumulated a wealth of knowledge and experience crafting fine jewelry and diamond ring. The first ring he ever designed and produced was an engagement ring for his girlfriend, who later became his wife. This ring employed his very own unique setting technique called Lumino. The setting suspended the center stone, enabling more light to enter through the diamond. The Lumino setting allowed center stones to reveal more brilliance, fire and scintillation. The innovative Lumino setting garnered major success and ultimately catapulted Barry Verragio’s career by giving him international acclaim. With this success, he continued creating engagement ring settings and bridal jewelry designs, which lead him to start his own brand, Verragio. Now, a world-renowned designer jewelry brand with timeless appeal.
SEMI-MOUNTS + CHOOSING YOUR OWN DIAMOND
Verragio rings are semi-mounts, which means there is no center stone in place. The rings are ready with accent stones and they are perfectly detailed, polished, and finished, but to complete the ring, you will need to choose a diamond for the center piece.

THE VERRAGIO SIGNATURE OF AUTHENTICITY
With any great brand comes replicas. It’s the nature of the designer industry. So, Verragio ensures that the buyer knows they are getting an authentic Verragio engagement ring by placing their signature on the inside of the ring. All Verragio rings have the brand’s signature.
That being said, there are of course knock-offs that attempt to copy the signature on fraudulent rings.
Things to look for to know you are looking at an authentic Verragio ring:
- Flawless signature.
- Semi-mount – Verragio rings are all semi-mounts, so the retailer should not sell it with a stone already set in it. Note: some retailers will set a stone in it for showroom purposes, but they will ask you to choose a center stone if you are going to buy it.
- Intricate detailing and complex designs – Verragio rings have intricate detailing that is very hard to replicate. Moreover, they have strict quality control. So, if anything looks off, then you know it’s not an authentic Verragio ring.
To avoid any issues and save yourself any stress, just make sure you only buy Verragio rings from trustworthy, authorized retailers like Diamonds By Raymond Lee.
