Angelina Jolie’s Engagement Ring:  What Do You Think?

So, by now we all know that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are engaged. Congratulations to them, of course! It’s about time, and we are so glad the kids convinced you.

Now let’s discuss the ring, shall we? We’ve all seen it. In case you've been living on Mars, the soon to be Mrs. Pitt’s ring looks like this:

It's designed by Brad Pitt and Robert Procop (who worked with Angelina Jolie on her jewelry line last year).   Since there has been no official statement as to the size or price of the ring (and really, why would there be?), here are what experts are estimating:

  • Center stone:  estimated 7 carat emerald cut stone
  • Surrounding stones:  estimated 9 carats of similar, smaller emerald cut stones.

While I love the large diamond in the middle, I am not feeling the art deco band, which I think crowds the main stone a little too much.   I know, Brad Pitt loves to design, as was evident from the ring he gave to the first Mrs. Pitt (Jennifer Aniston).  In case you’ve forgotten, that ring was co-designed by Brad Pitt and Silviana Damiani, and it looked like this:

I know Brad Pitt has a flair for design, but personally I am not feeling the “multiple diamond" rings that he seems to prefer.  Just my opinion of course, but I feel like the big diamond should stand on its own, and both of these rings feel over-designed and crowded to me.  Angelina Jolie’s style is much simpler and sleeker than Aniston’s, and her ring does reflect that.

Am I criticizing the ring?  Of course not.  It’s gorgeous.  Angelina Jolie is gorgeous, and Brad Pitt is a lovely and thoughtful person for designing an engagement ring for her.  For the record, I do think Angelina Jolie’s ring is MUCH more attractive than Jennifer Aniston’s.  I just wish that Brad Pitt would scale back on the design and let the beautiful stones he picks speak for themselves.

At any rate, we are going to hope that Angelina knows about BlingGuard, because she’s definitely going to need help to keep a multiple carat stunner upright on her tiny fingers.

What do you think of Angelina’s ring?  Would you wear it?
