Angelina Jolie's Engagement Ring Spawns Lots of Lookalikes

We can’t all have Brad Pitt — or a ring estimated at $1 million, either — but several jewelers already have Angelina Jolie-inspired sparklers ready to go.

Jacob & Co., the jeweler loved by stars like Jay-Z, Nick Cannon and Kevin Jonas, has its own version of Jolie’s ring (left), an 18-karat white gold creation with baguette-cut diamonds around the band retailing for a cool $338,000 — before the addition of an extra-large emerald-cut center stone.

A more affordable option comes by way of Gemvara, which just released a rock crystal and sterling silver version of the ring for $1,195. The bauble features an emerald-cut center gem and emerald-cut side stones.

Jolie’s engagement ring — which could weigh up to 10 carats and cost as much as $1 million, according to an independent expert — was created by Pitt with jeweler Robert Procop, who also works on the actress’s “Style of Jolie” line.

“Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized over a year-long collaboration with Robert,” a spokesperson for Procop said in a statement. “He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect, so Robert 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.” Tell us: Would you buy a replica of Jolie’s ring?

My ring is original Art Deco, so no!

I am sure that her ring is special to her, the way any engagement ring is special to the person to whom it is given. However, there are many rings similar in style. I agree with a previous poster, emerald cut is not attractive for larger diamonds as it has less facets than other cuts and therefore, less sparkle, but that is only my opinion. If she and her fiance are happy with the ring, than I doubt anything else matters to them.

a very beautiful ring for a very beautiful lady – wishing them much happiness and thanking them for all theey do to help others in the US and around the world…

Uhhh, I don’t think Angie’s ring is one of a kind or that unique. I have seen similar rings, so I’m not sure I understand this lookalike story. Is hers the first ring with diamonds all around the band and a large center stone? Cos thats basically what it is right – 360 degrees of square/rectangle cut diamonds on the band with a center stone. I went ring shopping with someone recently and I saw a couple like that. Now all of a sudden, the media is claiming hers is the first of its kind?

Susan, some people are struggling, not everyone is. My husband and I are middle class people, and our 3 of our 4 children are either middle class or upper middle class, not because they inherited money, but because they earned it, and worked hard to do so. One child is much younger than the others, so still working to get there, but he’s on his way.

To say that someone should not only donate a huge percentage of their salary to various legitimate charities, but should never have anything special, like an engagement ring, is just so, I don’t know, beyond anything reasonable or fair. I’m not saying everything is sunshine and roses everywhere in the world, but i am saying that most of the people I know who are struggling, are doing so because they are not paying attention to properly budgeting, they are insisting on holding out for a job that has 100 people for every opening, or they refuse to grow intellectually even in the field they are in, or all of the above. I hear too many people buying into the idea of “most people are struggling to pay their bills and their children are hungry.” Well, when I worked with families who were “struggling” to buy diapers and supplies for their babies, somehow they always had cigarettes, beer, and/or soda. They might nott have soap to wash their clothes, but they could always get those other things. I am not being critical of anyone; everyone has choices in life, but I’m saying that there are jobs, there are sensible ways to manage finances even if you have to have one car instead of 2. Maybe you give up your car, if there is public transportation, maybe you buy your clothes at resale shops, like millions of others, maybe you shop at a store like Sprouts, where you can buy healthy natural foods, for less money than it costs to shop in regular grocery stores. One thing I wouldn’t do is say someone who is already doing more than I ever did for others, should have to give up everything because I am lacking something. I’ve been broke, I’ve been in debt, and I was grateful to get out of those issues, but it felt good to see us stand on our own 2 feet to get out of debt and learn to stay that way. They do so much for others, why isn’t it okay for him to have a special ring made for the woman he loves? I haven’t heard anyone say squat about other people’s rings–Anyone’s ring in the last 2 years, for example. And I know I won’t hear a word if Jen gets a ring, no matter which one of them pays for it. Sorry, but this hateful stuff is just getting old!

People comment like they know these people etc. Duh! D’yah think Angelina or Brad care about what y’all have to say? They can afford the ring and you can’t, so stop being bitter!
