For those of you who own/have tried on Verragio rings, do they sit very high from your finger? They look like they may in the pictures. I have no local retailers nearby that carry the line.
Feel free to post pictures if you have a Verragio E-ring!

I tried on an infinity band + halo ring from Verragio and it sat VERY high on my finger. I didn’t bother to take a photo because it was a definite no for me, but the SA did say that when it’s sized for me finger, it wouldn’t be quite so bulbous. For reference, I have a size 4 finger, and the ring I tried on was a size 6 model in the store, where they all had 1.5 carat CZ in them. Depending on how big your finger is, and how dainty you want your ring to be, YMMV.

@letigre: I’m a size 4 as well and will be getting between a 1.3-1.5 center stone. I don’t really like rings that sit high but do like the design of many in this line.

Yes, they sit high on your finger. Every single one I tried on sat too high for my tastes so I am glad FI opted not to go with a verragio. A co-worker of mine has one and I’ve heard her say “sh!t!” more than once as her ring gets caught on various ledges.
I’m a size 5, but my co-worker’s ring fits her perfectly and she still has issues, so if you don’t like high settings, I would avoid them – even though they are STUNNING!

No, not all of them do. I know that I want a Verragio so I have tried on quite a lot of them (like 30different stylesdrom every collection) so I know from a lot of experience that many of the styles sit low (cuz that’s what I like best and therefore gravitate toward). There are some that are purposely cathedral setting but those are specialto be that way. Hope this helps!

@SR: I tried on a few. To me I was OK with the height, because I like that (my ering sits high). Personally I didn’t like the feeling their rings had from more of a quality/craftsmanship perspective, the finishes and detail were noticeable against my skin (hard to explain). I found other designers to be more comfortable for my finger.
Ive tried on almost all the main designers. I found Scott Kay to have the level of detail I was looking for paired with a price point which worked for my FI.

I realize this is an older thread, but someone wondering about Verragio rings may still read this. They do sit pretty high. I just recently went to try one on. Was sure I was going to end up with this one. It was one from the Parisian line.
I wasn’t bothered too much by how high the ring was actually. What I didn’t like about the ring, and most of their rings unless you get a split shank or super, super expensive Verragio, is that the ring part is thin. The setting I looked at was $1600, so not bad for a Verragio. I didn’t want a thick band, but I did want the detailing to show up more, and it just didn’t.
I ended up finding a semi mount at a diamond event at Fred Meyer. The setting alone is one carat total weight, and it was at the diamond remount even but just happened to be clearanced(older style maybe) plus and additional 10% off. I got an amazig deal and I prefer it to the Verragio. If price were no object, I’d have probably bought a $3000 Verggio, but I just couldn’t make my self do that.
