It’s official! Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are engaged. “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. Brad designed the ring,” Pitt’s manager, Cynthia Pett-Dante, told us on Friday afternoon.
Earlier Friday, we confirmed that the sparkler Jolie wore Wednesday night at a museum event in L.A. is indeed an engagement ring. Robert Procop, the Beverly Hills jeweler and former CEO of Asprey & Garrard, the British jewelry company to the English royal family, said he crafted Jolie’s ring in collaboration with Pitt.
Procop told us: “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. 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.”
Procop was not just some random choice for Pitt: The jeweler has worked with Jolie as well, designing baubles, the Style of Jolie collection, to benefit the Education Partnership for Children in Conflict.
