Designer Diamond Engagement Rings – Tacori Rings
Exquisite rings aren’t always selected from collections of hundreds; neither does a ring have to be customized, to be unique. Designer diamond engagement rings can also be those created by professional jewelers, and here, we’ll be discovering the specific qualities of two designer engagement rings: Verragio and Tacori engagement rings.
What makes Tacori Engagement Rings so special?
The design of a Tacori engagement ring starts with the passion of the artists who are inspired to invent designs that will resonate and spark your passion. In their design studios, expert Tacori engagement ring craftsmen design beautiful and original sketches that showcase their signature crescent silhouette design detail.
From the sketch, an image is created using cutting edge CAD technology culminating designs of amazing precision. The detailed ring image is used to develop a wax prototype. Precious molten metal is then placed into a mold impression and reformed into an engagement ring using unique firing and casting procedures. Once the metal hardens and cools, the mold is taken away unveiling the rough ring casting. A gold smith finishes the exterior of the metal by adding Tacori’s signature intricate hand crafted detail. Once the setting is finished, intricate milgrain and scrolling is hand sculpted.
This hand crafting process, known as the Tacori Touch, takes an intensive four weeks from start to finish. It is a desire for detail and perfection that arises in a moment of passion when a blue Tacori designer engagement ring box is opened and the treasure inside is unveiled.
Verragio rings, on the other hand, are a very flashy choice, or better put a ring for those who love to stand out from the crowd, and are highly valuated by the discerning eye. In other words, Verragio rings are similar to those from the heirloom collections of Tacori. Verragio collections lack plain and simple rings, but they can be deemed ‘Vogue’ of the fashion jewelry world, so they choose not to care.
In Barry Verragio’s 20 year career as a jewelry designer for some of the most respected names in the jewelry industry, he has learned the value of craftsmanship and commitment to detail and quality. Barry first began creating jewelry as an apprentice. Barry’s natural given abilities were enhanced by his studies at the prestigious New York City’s Fashion Institute of Technology. After mastering engagement ring design, Verragio eventually moved on to create his own company based on his own exquisite setting technique.
Verragio has become well known for their revolutionary Lumino Setting technique that suspends the diamond leaving the stone extremely vulnerable to light. This very design process is used in almost all of Verragio’s designer engagement rings, and it’s been said to be as unique as the woman wearing it.
It’s obvious that designer engagement rings can be more expensive than those made by your local jeweler. Both Tacori and Verragio are similar in cost, however, what can make the difference is the diamond. Diamond are forever, as the saying goes; and with the perfect setting, both of these engagement rings can be truly timeless.
Tacori Emerald Ring
What can a 4 decade old jewelry store offer you? Simply one of the best quality jewels you will ever encounter. Their emerald pieces tend to add more sophistication and glamour more than any other.
Most Tacori hand crafted rings are made from Platinum, white gold or yellow gold as the setting. They usually have 18 carats. But if you prefer other materials and a lower or a higher carat in it, it may also be possible.
It has unique and distinctive European elegance. The designs of the setting have the trademark “crescent silhouette design detail”. This design is characterized by half moon arcs which are unique for Tacori pieces. The gems are hand-set to make sure they are placed well in the setting. It is also very important that the gems are carefully chosen to match the type of setting.
As emeralds give unique brilliance and shine, they are one of the best jewels, not to mention precious. They easily reflect light and so they become more attractive. The sparkle of emeralds is also important. It should have the best possible scintillation.
In choosing the best emeralds, you should also consider its color. The most precious ones are those with the deepest green color. And they are also the most expensive. It can be found mixed with other colors, like yellow and blue.
