“I can confirm that, yes, Robert Procop did indeed design an engagement ring for Angelina Jolie, designed in collaboration with Brad Pitt,” said a rep for the Beverly Hills jeweler. Procop was also once CEO of Asprey & Garrard, the choice jeweler of the British royal family.
The ring — first spotted on Jolie during an April 11 outing with Pitt and their son, Pax — is one-of-a-kind, of course.
“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 to suite Angelina’s hand,” Procop told The Hollywood Reporter on Friday. “Brad was always heavily involved, overseeing every aspect of the creative design evolution. The side diamonds are specially cut to encircle her finger. Each diamond is of the highest gem quality.”
The couple is engaged, according to his rep.
“Yes, it’s confirmed,” Pitt’s manager Cynthia Pett-Dante told People. “It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy. There’s no date set at this time.”
They used to say they wouldn’t get married until all people (read: gay couples) were able to marry. Lately, they’ve changed their tune. “We’d actually like to,” Pitt told The Hollywood Reporter during a recent cover interview. “And it seems to mean more and more to our kids. We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to do it till everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out. It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment.”
So, details? Nope — Pitt wasn’t budging.
“I’m not going to go any further,” said Pitt. “But to be in love with someone and be raising a family with someone and want to make that commitment and not be able to is ludicrous, just ludicrous.”
