So that’s why Angelina and Brad have taken so long to get engaged… Brad Pitt was having all the world’s remaining diamonds dug up to give to Angie.
With no consideration for the fact that his 36-year-old wife-to-be will now is develop an enormous muscular left arm thanks to the weight of the thing on her hand, Brad has given his betrothed a staggeringly large flawless emerald cut diamond set in an art deco band of yet more slim (also flawless) emerald diamonds, cut so that they perfectly fit Angie’s finger.
According to legend (for it is already thus), 48-year-old Brad, who proposed last week in New Orleans, designed the ring over the course of a year with the help of jeweller Robert Procop. The resulting bling has been deemed by the mercenary few to be worth between $250k and $1m, depending on whose hyperbole you tune in to.
Procop’s peeps said Brad had a ‘vision’ for the ring that he wanted to realise. ‘He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect,’ they said. ‘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 two, who have previously said they wouldn’t wed until gay marriages became legal in the United States, reportedly succumbed to pressure from their six children to get engaged. Let’s hope the Republican party don’t get voted in at the next election or Angie and Brad are in for a long engagement. Yet another reason to vote Democrat.
