The Classico collection from Verragio can best be described by ‘classy,’ as in when you see a woman wearing a Classico engagement ring, you think to yourself “that is one classy lady.” In all seriousness though, the Classico collection was designed to embody a timeless and clean style, but they are not exactly the type of engagement rings you have seen before. Almost every ring in the collection features Verragio’s exclusive Lumino setting.
The Lumino setting is a special way in which the diamond is set, so that it reflects 75% more light than the average setting. A diamond’s ability to capture and reflect light is what makes an engagement ring sparkle; it is also what makes them so coveted. The Lumino setting leaves as much of the diamond exposed to the light as possible while still securing it in place; this way not only can you see more of the diamond, there is more surface area left out to sparkle.
The Classico 0372 engagement ring is a vintage inspired solitaire design that has a subtle modern flair due to the use of the Lumino setting. It features pave’ set Round cut diamonds that almost encircle the entire band, and accommodates a Round cut center diamond. It sounds pretty classic and clean, but the center diamond, secured by six thin prongs, can be seen from all angles (including the bottom)thanks to the Lumino setting, which also serves to save this ring from being, no matter how elegant, the same thing that has been done before.
But 95% of the Classico collection engagement rings have a Lumino setting for their center diamonds, so that no matter what your personal preference is, there is a design to suit anyone.
The symbolism of the past, present, and future that is associated with a three stone engagement ring makes the use of side diamonds incredibly popular. The Classico 0245 incorporates that vintage idea, but uses the Lumino setting to design a more updated look. This engagement ring features a Round cut diamond center, flanked by a smaller Round diamond on either side, all three of which utilizes the Lumino setting to its fullest. The diamonds are raised above the band by pave’ set pongs, so that even the bottom point of the diamond can be seen.
When shopping for an engagement ring, it is important to remember that this ring will be worn for the rest of your life. So just like with all of Verragio’s rings, the Classico collection with the Lumino setting features a timeless, classic style that really is like no other.
