Verragio: The Mounting and Diamonds Are Equal

The Verragio rings designed by Barry Verragio have been in the jewelry business since he was 14 years old. He spent most of his time and attention on the bridal industry and making high-quality and unique wedding bands and rings. Barry is known for his love of decorative elements and curves stapled in European designs and modern and elegant jewelry styles.

He usually shows the diamond’s beauty on display, creating the ‘Lumino setting,’ which exposes all the stone facets to the light. He once stated that he would never make a mounting that would take away the diamond’s inner beauty, so Verragio focuses on the main and side stones.

One of the brand’s high-end engagement rings is the Verragio 905R6 from their Renaissance collection. This ring features round brilliant-cut melee diamonds that emphasize the ring’s diamond center, which features 1.50 to 2.25 diamond carats. 

DeBeers: Pioneers of Diamond Engagement Rings

Even though wedding rings and engagement rings have been a tradition long before DeBeers existed, their epic marketing campaign in 1947 is what made diamond engagement rings into the pre-wedding custom we know today. If you’ve ever heard of the slogan “A Diamond is Forever,” that was from the DeBeers’ successful marketing campaign.

One of their engagement rings is the Aura solitaire, which features a stunning round diamond framed by a halo of micro pave diamonds prong on a platinum band. When you elevate the diamond towards the light, the diamond’s cut is fully revealed, with the surrounding diamonds revealing their inner beauty. The Aura collection is inspired by crowns in ancient wedding ceremonies. This ring fits perfectly next to a wedding band, making it an excellent choice for an engagement ring.

Tiffany & Co: The Traditional Engagement Ring Genius
