Angelina Jolie’s Engagement Ring
The gorgeous Angelina debuted a her engagement ring on April 11 at the Chinese Galleries in LA. Whilst Brad Pitt has been said to have painstakingly spent a year designing and sourcing the ring, there are already a host of lookalike rings.
The ring was created by jeweller Robert Procop, who also worked with the actress on her own fashion line. Procop has said that Brad had wanted to be involved in every aspect of the ring, and particularly in choosing an ethical diamond… nothing less for a humanitarian super mom like Angelina!
The ring has been reported to be betwen 10 to 16 carats and estimated to be between $500,000 to $1 million. Brad is said to have proposed to his partner over Christmas but they have not stepped out with the ring as they were concerned engagement reports may overshadow her directorial debut earlier this year. Brad and Angelina made a famous statement that they would not get married before gay men and women had the equal right to marry. However, in recent months, Brad is said to have changed his statement and said that his children wanted him to marry their mother and that it would mean more for them. He is said to have said that the pressure from his children has meant he may have to break his vow. I read that his children insist on Brad and Angelina getting married just as “Shrek married Fiona.” Awww…
Jeweller to the stars Jacob & Co (who also produced Jay Z and Nick Cannon’s engagement rings for their lady loves) has a similar sparkler priced *slightly lower* at $338,000. Jacob & Co is said to have had the ring on sale prior to the the Brangelina announcement so I am sure the sales of that particular rock have rocketed in the mean time. The Jacob & Co ring features baguette diamonds surrounding an emerald cut stone.
