Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s engagement has prompted People Magazine to release a “Special Engagement” issue. Strange to me, considering so little is known about their engagement. All we really know at this point is they are in fact engaged, and we know who created the ring.
People has gotten a couple more details for their special issue, including how much the stunning diamond ring is worth.
When the time finally came for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to make a promise for their future, Pitt made sure to do it right.
“Brad had the vision” for the custom-cut engagement ring, Beverly Hills jeweler Procop tells PEOPLE in this week’s engagement special cover story. Check out the stunning sparkler – with diamonds set on a band of yellow gold – in a close-up photo.
An independent expert tells PEOPLE that the ring could weigh in at more than 10 carats total, with a price tag of $1 million.
Jolie, 36, quietly debuted the ring at a private event at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on April 11.
After seven years and six kids together, the couple decided that they were ready to begin their next chapter together. “They’ve reached a stage where their family has jelled,” says a source who has spent time with them.
For much more on Brad and Angelina’s engagement, including wedding dress sketches from top bridal designers and an inside look at the couple’s relationship, pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE.
Another source says that Brad has been working on this ring for over a year. Apparently the diamonds (which are “ribbed”) go around her entire finger. “The side diamonds are specially cut to encircle her finger. Each diamond is of the highest gem quality. Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized over a yearlong collaboration. He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect, so I was able to locate a diamond of the finest quality and cut it to an exact custom size and shape tosuite Angelina’s hand. Brad was always heavily involved, overseeing every aspect of the creative design evolution. Each diamond is of the highest gem quality.
What do you think of her ring?
