Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Finally Engaged!
Yes ladies and gentlemen, you heard right – Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (Hollywood’s IT couple) are officially engaged! It’s about time, eh?
About an hour ago, Hollywood Reporter was first to break the story and reported that Angelina was wearing a brand new diamond ring – engagement ring – on her finger.
Robert Procop, the Beverly Hills jeweler and former CEO of Asprey & Garrard, the British jewelry company to the English royal family, confirmed that he has designed an engagement ring for Angelina Jolie. A rep for the jeweler says, “I can confirm that, yes, Robert Procop did indeed design an engagement ring for Angelina Jolie, designed in collaboration with Brad Pitt.“
Jolie was wearing the ring on April 11 at a private viewing of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Chinese Galleries. She was with Pitt and their son Pax.The Procop rep claims that the ring took an year to make because Pitt wanted it to be perfect. He went on to say, “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.“
Although neither Jolie or Pitt’s representatives could be reached for comment, the proof is there.
UPDATE: Brangelina’s engagementwas confirmed yesterday by Brad Pitt‘s manager to People magazine, “Yes, it’s confirmed It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy. There’s no date set at this time.”
