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. 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.
