Angelina Jolie's engagement ring was first glimpsed at a private view of the Chinese Art collection at the Los Angeles County Museum on 12 April. It was made by Robert Procop, Angelina Jolie's private jeweller, to a design created with a lot of input from Brad Pitt. A diamond was sourced specially for the task, and cut to an elongated tablet shape ideal for Angelina's fingers. The centre stone is surrounded by a series of smaller stones, graduated in size. The ring took a year to make.

Procop, Jolie and Pitt have worked on jewellery before, and in particular on a collection titled "Style of Jolie," proceeds from which go to helping children in need by means of the foundation founded by Jolie, the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict.
