This is the first really clear shot of the engagement ring Brad Pitt spent a year designing with jeweler Robert Procop for his new bride-to-be, Angelina Jolie. The Daily Mail says:
Procop said: ‘Brad had a specific vision for this ring. He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect. Brad was always heavily involved [in] overseeing every aspect of the design evolution, [insisting on a] diamond of the finest quality cut to an exact custom size and shape to suite Angelina’s hand.”
Experts estimate the ring cost around $250,000.
Wait, did you catch that? Angie’s ring only cost a quarter of a million dollars, but you’ll remember he spent HALF a million on the ring he designed for ex-wife Jennifer Aniston. Oh, you didn’t remember that? Yeah, me neither. Good thing Jen called up Us Magazine to remind them, then! Yahoo News says:
It looks like Pitt, 48, has gotten a bit more conservative when it comes down to the price tag. Back in 1999, Aniston’s ring, which she debuted during a Sting concert in NYC, was estimated to be worth around $500,000; jewelry expert Michael O’Connor quoted Jolie’s ring to be somewhere around $250,000.
This is probably the best day that Jennifer Aniston’s had since the first reviews of “The Tourist” came in. It’s the little victories in life that keep us from killing ourselves.
