Justin Theroux gave Jennifer Aniston a “huge emerald-cut diamond” – plus details on Justin’s proposal!
We still haven’t gotten our eyes on Jennifer Aniston’s new engagement ring! Yesterday she was spotted arriving back on the set of her new movie ‘We’re the Millers’, but she wasn’t wearing her ring! (See the photos here) While we’re still waiting for our first look at the diamond, details on the piece are starting to roll in! Life & Style reports that Justin gave Jennifer an enormous emerald-cut diamond ring:
Justin Theroux certainly knows the way to his lady’s heart! Just four days after Justin proposed to his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, on his 41st birthday, Life & Style, on newsstands tomorrow, can reveal exclusive details about Jen’s much-talked-about ring!
“It’s a huge emerald-cut diamond,” a friend of Jen’s tells Life & Style. “It’s a rectangle with tapered diamond baguettes on the sides.”
The source estimates the ring to be 8 carats, adding, “It’s beautiful.”
And the 43-year-old actress is beaming with happiness.
“Just after Jen got engaged, she called all her friends and told them about it,” the friend reveals. “She was so happy and said she loves the ring. I think she was overwhelmed and overjoyed by the size and beauty of it!”
Though the duo are very protective of their personal lives, Jen has revealed just how great it is to be in the relationship.
“I’m very happy,” Jen has said about her personal life with Justin. “I’m extremely lucky, and I’m extremely happy.”
“Having experienced everything you don’t want in a partner over time, it starts to narrow down to what you actually do want,” she’s also said. “As I get older, I realize what qualities are important in love and what suits me — and what I won’t settle for.”
The couple have been dating for more than a year since meeting on the set of Wanderlust in May 2011. Before meeting Jen, Justin dated Heidi Bivens for 14 years. Jen was married to actor Brad Pitt in 2000 and finalized their divorce in October 2005.
PEOPLE has details on Justin’s proposal. Looks like he proposed in New York City.
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux hopped a private jet to New York City last weekend to celebrate Theroux’s 41st birthday – but he had a little something else up his sleeve: an engagement ring.
On Aug. 10, Theroux’s birthday, the pair of 15 months sat side by side at a corner table at Blue Hill restaurant in Manhattan, enjoying a quiet dinner and looking “like a long-term couple in love,” a source tells PEOPLE in its new issue.
But the celebration was just getting started. As his rep exclusively revealed to PEOPLE, Theroux proposed that day – and Aniston, 43, gave him “an extraordinary gift” by accepting. “He’s been dying to do it,” says a Theroux pal of his popping the question. “His friends knew it was coming.”
Immediately after Aniston’s heartfelt “yes!” the couple called their families – including her father, actor John Aniston – and close pals to share the good news.
“Everyone is really excited for them,” adds a source. “It’s amazing to see how happy Justin makes Jen, and everyone was always hoping that he would propose.”
Friends say that the couple got serious about each other fast, and that actor-screenwriter Theroux is a perfect match for the laid-back Aniston. “They have the same low-key attitude about life,” says a member of their inner circle. “They just click and complement each other.”
Rumor has it the couple are planning on eloping, but I don’t see that happening. I see Jen going for the full wedding. We’ll see though! Maybe she’ll rush to beat Brad and Angie down the aisle!
