Brad and Angelina Engaged!
Well readers, it’s official – Brad and Angelina are engaged! If you were under the impression that they’ve been married for years you’re not alone, but you are in fact wrong. News broke yesterday that the famous pair had solidified their future together with an engagement ring.
Before the couple’s manager officially announced their engagement Friday afternoon, their jeweler spoke out.
Robert Procop in Beverly Hills apparently designed Angie’s diamond ring, according to a rep who confirmed the news to the media. While the rep for Procop didn’t give away the carat size or any other juicy tidbits, they did explain to Hollywood Reporter that Brad Pitt was heavily involved in the design process:
“Working closely with Brad Pitt to realize the star’s vision for the ring, Robert Procop was able to source a diamond of the finest quality which was then transformed using Pitt’s unique designs, cut with distinctive faceting to a shape and size that perfectly suits Angelina’s long, slender fingers. Throughout, Brad Pitt remained heavily involved, overseeing every aspect of the creative design process from the perfect cut of the diamond centerpiece – an elongated tablet shape – to the finishing touches such as the mounting of a galaxy of smaller stones which are graduated in size and faceted to match, adding a crowning lustre to the ring. The full creative journey – from conception to completion – took a year, with Brad Pitt waiting until the perfect moment to unveil this special jewel to Angelina Jolie.”
If, in fact, Brad and Angelina are engaged we hope that this jeweler didn’t spill the beans a la Jessica Biel & Justin Timberlake‘s engagement. However, Brad hinted earlier this year that their long forsworn marriage might be happening sooner rather than later. If this ring is any indication, Brad is serious about getting married – because that is a serious ring! From what we can see, Angie’s ring is a massive emerald cut diamond that may be flanked by smaller, matching side stones. Angelina has an affinity for emeralds, so Brad might have been paying homage to her favorite gemstone’s famous cut! These are a few of our favorite emerald cut engagement rings.
