In his over 25 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, he eventually paved the way to establishing his own company, based on the development of his then exclusive setting technique. This very setting technique was just the beginning of the realization that the possibilities were truly endless when designing an engagement ring. :Albert Einstein once said that the definition of insanity was 'doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results" says Verragio. "This is the exact theory that has fueled me to believe that one should never settle for average." With the growth of Verragio over the years, Barry's vision has become anything but average. Verragio continues to create engagement rings and wedding bands that are cutting edge, but with a classic foundation, for today’s discerning bride-to-be. Being able to create and offer an engagement ring that is truly unlike any other is the driving force of Barry’s motivation today.
