Some high-profile red carpet couples last and others don’t. But, diamonds still last forever. Here are 12 celebrities who have sported some serious rocks over time.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
While it’s no secret that this marriage is over, Pitt proposed to his longtime partner, Jolie, in 2012 with a rectangular-cut diamond ring said to be over 10 carats. Brad’s sensational choice of engagement ring seems to perfectly reflect the love he had for his gorgeous actress. The flawless diamond ring oozes the love and care the couple once had, and which went into the design. It is said to have take Pitt and jeweler, Robert Procop, over a year to perfect the dazzler.
Pitt designed the ring for the mother of six with a very specific vision in mind. He is said to have wanted each and every detail to be perfect and he made sure he was heavily involved in the creative design process. The side diamonds have been specially cut to encircle Angelina’s finger and each diamond is of the highest possible quality. Experts have estimated the ring, which Jolie has requested in the divorce, to cost about $250,000.
Before marrying Brad Pitt, Angelina was married twice – to actor Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton, so we will be keeping an eager eye out to see where her next sparkling engagement ring will come from!
