Jolie and Pitt announced their engagement last week. Pitt proposed to Jolie with a custom made engagement ring from Robert Procop.
Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized over a year-long collaboration with Robert, said the jeweler 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 suite Angelina's hand.
Brad was always heavily involved, overseeing every aspect of the creative design evolution, the statement continued. The side diamonds are specially cut to encircle her finger. Each diamond is of the highest gem quality.
Yes, it's confirmed, Pitt's manager Cynthia Pett-Dante told People Magazine. It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy. There's no date set at this time.
