Have you been enchanted by an engagement ring by Verragio? Their unique rings and wedding bands have been captivating shoppers worldwide for years. With a commitment to craftsmanship and quality, these vintage-style rings are a modern heirloom to be passed down for generations. Their designs have won accolades and also been imitated. But a genuine Verragio engagement ring is more accessible than you think – especially now that they’ve paired up with top-rated online engagement ring seller, James Allen.
Verragio Engagement Ring History
Verragio was founded by Barry Verragio, an immigrant who came to America from Moscow when he was just 14 years old. After spending 6 months in a New York City sponsored program in jewelry fabrication, he took a job as a bench jeweler. Later, he enrolled at the Fashion Institute of Technology to hone his skills while still working full-time.
After creating a unique engagement ring for his now-wife, he decided to specialize in wedding and engagement jewelry and Verragio was born. An exclusive feature of Verragio engagement rings is the Lumino Setting, a revolutionary design that suspends the diamond, exposing more facets to light.
Best Place to Buy a Verragio Engagement Ring
You may have come across the exquisite designs of Verragio at a local jeweler like Robins Brothers, J.R. Dunn, D. Gellar or Solomon Brothers. These retailers typically have small diamond inventories and would prefer you to purchase a stone from their on-site collection. This is why I recommend purchasing a Verragio engagement ring from an authorized online seller like James Allen or Whiteflash.
The advantages of buying online are many. Starting with the online jeweler’s ability to offer a wider assortment of Verragio settings and diamonds. Most local jewelers have a small selection of diamonds in any particular shape or size range, but James Allen has over 100,000 diamonds that you can choose from for your engagement ring.
When you visit a local jeweler, many of their Verragio rings are pre-set with diamonds from their own collection. This means you will not get the change to examine the diamond outside of the setting to see the true brilliance of each stone. At James Allen and Whiteflash, you can view each diamond in 360-degree high-definition before making your selection.
Get the Best Price on a Verragio Engagement Ring
Want to save money on your Verragio engagement ring? Select from James Allen’s collection of Lab Created Diamonds. These diamonds which are unrecognizable fro earth-mined diamonds are created in a lab setting and will save you over 30%. Most small jewelry chains and stand-alone stores are not offering this option yet.
One last advantage to buying online from James Allen? If you live in one of the following states you will not be charged sales tax on your purchase: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. But hurry, these tax loopholes are closing quickly as more states try to capture revenue from online purchases so this advantage may not last long.
