Looking for the Perfect Ring? Shop Verragio

Here at Kranich’s Jewelers, we are committed to providing couples with both classic and unique engagement rings. By seeking out the most innovative jewelry lines by some of the most well-respected jewelry designers in the industry, our team is able to find engagement rings as timeless and as special as the love you share with your partner.

While some designers offer multiple jewelry selections, others specialize solely in wedding and engagement rings – such as our line of rings by the revered Barry Verragio. We are proud to offer this globally celebrated line in our store, and are excited about the endless options for personalizing each ring to perfection in your eyes.

Barry Verragio

Barry Verragio is an expert in his field, and one of the most innovative fine jewelry designers in the world. He began his career as a jeweler, whose passion for the artistry of jewelry led him to the esteemed Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. It was there that he fell in love with the elegance of ring design. Now, with over 25 years of designing some of the most unique wedding and engagement rings in the world, you can rest assured that a Verragio ring is a ring she will love.

Inspired By the Beauty of Women

Each and every ring in his ever-evolving collection is inspired by the undeniable and often effortless beauty of women. Everything from his unique shapes, layered approach, innovative design elements – to his multiple options for personalizing each ring for the bride to be – is designed to be elegant, classic, sophisticated and beautiful. He never designs a ring for the sake of designing a ring, and goes back to the drawing board if a design is not as unique as the bridge he envisions; the beautiful woman whose finger it will be gracing.

A Layered Approach to Engagement Ring Design

A Verragio ring is designed with multiple layers. While the layers of each ring, or each of his current collection of rings, is unique, each layer can be personalized so that the bride can truly experience the brand’s motto to “make it yours.” The current five collections are the Parisian, Venetian, Insignia, Classic and Couture. Each layer of the ring can be personalized to allow the bride to express her personal sense of style.

While most rings are designed with only one precious metal, Verragio engagement rings are unique because each layer can be made with a combination of White Gold, Rose Gold, Yellow Gold or Platinum. In other words, the design of the band is highlighted by contrasting metals. The combination of metals allows you to create a ring with endless possibilities, and that doesn’t even include the options in diamonds and gemstones.

No need to worry about what the custom design will look like, as your jeweler has the ability to allow you to see how each layer varies with varying combinations of precious metals. Keep mixing and matching until it is just right. The most common layers of a Verragio ring include:
• Halo
• Tiara
• Lace
• Beading
• Shank

Not every ring has each of these layers – and don’t worry about understanding what each layer means. Your trusted Kranich’s jeweler will walk you through all of the distinct differences that make your engagement ring special.

The Engagement Ring Band is an Essential Part of the Design

Verragio engagement ring bands differ from most. While most designers offer an intricate setting with a plain band, Verragio dazzles with both the band and the setting. Not only is every wedding ring and engagement band designed in multiple precious metals, but each band is designed to be stunning from every angle. While most bands are fairly simple, a Verragio band is a full-circle design. It looks beautiful from the top, either side and even from the bottom of the ring when your hand is facing up.

Since the gemstones and intricate 360-degree design encompasses the entire band, the rings can be resized up to 1 ½ sizes with Verragio’s patented sizing system – without ever being cut.

We Must Not Forget the Diamond

What would a wedding or engagement ring be without a stunning diamond? As if the endless options in the wedding band aren’t enough, you still need to consider the diamond. Each Verragio ring features a focal gemstone in one of the classic cuts – round, square, oval, princess or pear. While the setting is predetermined, you can, of course, choose from varying quality and colors of diamonds. Study up on the 4 C’s before you begin shopping, so that you can truly understand the differences in Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat Weight.

Should You Bring Your Bride-to-Be Ring Shopping?

Verragio rings are for unique brides, or fiancés who desire something unique for their bride-to-be. While a more standard design has enough options to choose from, the endless options in Verragio rings can make shopping feel a bit overwhelming. Since each ring is a custom design, and therefore does not qualify for a standard refund or exchange, it might be best to ensure your bride has a bit of input – but the choice is of course always up to you. You could even bring her browsing one day to simply gauge a few of her likes and dislikes.

Your wedding ring is a symbol of your lasting love, so selecting the perfect ring is a must. Rings are also a significant investment, so you want to invest time and attention in designing a ring that your bride will cherish for years to come. We know there are a lot of important decisions to make when shopping for the perfect ring, which is why Kranich’s Jewelers is committed to making the process as fun, exciting and easy as possible.

I know it’s a few days old, but for those who haven’t seen it yet, the team over at Verragio asked all of their Facebook fans to help them name their new designer line due out this Spring. Here is an excerpt from the official release.

New York, NY (PRWEB) February 17, 2010 — Without an official name assigned to the new collection of engagement rings and wedding bands, Verragio provided a sneak-peek of the new designs to a select group of fine jewelry establishments at the invitation-only Centurion Jewelry Show in Tucson, Arizona earlier this month. “The distinctive styling combined with our unique approach to accentuate the side profiles of the rings have been particularly appreciated by the jewelry retailers at the show,” says Barry Verragio.

New Evermore Collection by Verragio When it came to naming the new collection, Verragio reached out to its large fan base on Facebook. After a week of voting, Verragio fans decided on “EVERMORE” as the name of the new collection, pulling in over a 75% preference in votes.

With Barry Verragio’s latest Evermore Collection, Verragio will offer engagement ring and wedding band designs that go beyond the typical engagement ring, to provide a unique styling to those who appreciate the superb craftsmanship and inspired artistry in the details. The Evermore Collection of engagement rings will join Verragio’s other distinct collections such as Couture, Insignia, Classico and Paradiso.
