1. Veraggio: Where the Mounting is as Important as the Diamond

Verragio 905R6
Verragio 905R6
Verragio Designer Rings founder – Barry Verragio, has been making jewelry since the tender age of 14. He dedicates all of his attention and creativity to the bridal market, making unique engagement rings and wedding bands. He’s known for his love of curves and decorative elements that are staples in European design and creates modern and elegant antique style jewelry.
He makes a point of placing the beauty of diamonds on display such as the creation of the Lumino setting that exposes all the facets of a stone to the light. He once said: “I would never make a mounting that’s going to take away from the intrinsic beauty of the diamond, so we emphasize the main and side stones.”

This thoroughly modern jewelry design house opened in 1999. Ritani engagement rings are items of beauty that blend technology and old world craftsmanship.
There are many diverse collections of Ritani diamond engagement rings but one feature common to many is the technique known as "micro-pave" consisting of many small diamonds set very closely together.

Vatche 180
Vatche 180
