What a rock!
Despite getting engaged to Justin Theroux in August, today the first photos of Jennifer Aniston’s blinding diamond engagement ring emerged. And it is huge!
She and Theroux were photographed in Santa Fe at the weekend and we’re still not sure how the photographer managed to snap the picture without getting blinded by Jen’s bling.
But now that we’ve had a glimpse at the ring, the obvious question is, how does it stack up to love rival Angelina Jolie’s bling?
Let’s take a quick look….
Jennifer: Life & Style reported that “it’s a huge emerald-cut diamond. It’s a rectangle with tapered diamond baguettes on the sides.” It is estimated to weigh 8 carats.
Angelina: Jewelry expert Michael O’Connor told Us Weekly that Jolie’s ring is a seven-carat center stone and a total 16-carats around the yellow gold band.
Jennifer: Still not known
Angelina: A collaboration between Beverly Hills jeweler (and former CEO of Asprey & Garrard) Robert Procop and Brad– they worked on it for a year!
The Big Question: How much is it worth?
Jennifer: Her huge rock may have cost fiance Justin Theroux a whopping $500,000, according to designer Peter Meksian.
“Looking at the ring, it’s a basic solitaire and a beautiful diamond,” Meksian, CEO and designer with the Michael M collection, told Celebuzz exclusively on Monday.
[Side note: Jen's engagement ring from Brad was designed by Italian jeweler Silvia Damiani and estimated to cost around $500,000]
Angelina: “I would estimate this ring to cost $500,000,” Michael O’Connor says of the jewel.
And the winner is?
Jennifer…she got two engagement rings at a price tag of $500,000… and more importantly, we believe she has found true love with Theroux. And that… is priceless.
