After years of cohabitation, six kids and numerous headlines, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie made it official, they plan to make it official. “It means so much to my kids, and they ask about it,” Pitt says “And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment.” The Hollywood Reporter notes Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized over a year long collaboration with jeweler Robert Procop. “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 suit 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 and each diamond is of the highest gem quality.”
According to The Huffington Post, Pitt’s manager confirmed the couple’s engagement after Jolie was recently spotted wearing a diamond ring on her wedding finger.” The prominent engagement ring is giving the world a warning,” says Stephen Galloway, executive editor of features at The Hollywood Reporter. He adds this may be an American equivalent to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding, but Bradley Jacobs, a senior editor at Us Weekly, sees things differently. He anticipates the wedding will be a private, even low-key affair. “I don’t think you’re going to see a bunch of fanfare,” he said.” It’s certainly not going to be a Kim Kardashian-style wedding… it’s going to be very subdued.”
Regardless of the size of the celebration or where it takes place, the Jolie-Pitt wedding has major economic implications. Entire magazine issues could be devoted to each star’s wedding-day style. “Jolie’s wedding dress is a career-making outfit for the winning designer” Galloway adds, “It’s literally worth millions of dollars in business.” Even Pitt’s look leaves room for ample speculation: Long hair or short? Facial scruff or clean-shaven? A classic tuxedo…designed by whom? Then there is the guest list. Who will be the best man…maid of honor? Unless, of course, the two elope.
