You guys! Remember what happened on Friday? We found out that Brad Pitt proposed to Angelina Jolie! Wasn’t that darling? I love a love story with all my heart, and this one definitely fit the bill. But let’s be real: it’s fun to look at super fancy engagement rings, right?
So here’s another shot of Angelina’s:
What do you guys think? Because to be honest, I really, really don’t like it. Like, at all. To be fair though, I’m not really a diamond girl: my ring is a sapphire, and the only diamonds I own are a pair of earrings that my dad got for my mom when they got married. I know it’s not the most popular opinion, but I couldn’t imagine going for a diamond when there are so many gorgeous colors of gemstones to choose from! And also, I think the bigger the diamond is, the worse it looks. I’m not exactly sure how to say this, but it’s like the bigger and higher quality diamonds tend to look less like something pretty and sparkly and more like glass. Do you know what I mean?
Take Kim Kardashian’s engagement ring or Jessica Biel’s engagement ring, and then throw them in a river. No, I’m kidding, sell them and put your children through college. Just don’t wear them, because they look ridiculous. I like costume jewelry and everything, but I’m not going to wear it every day for the rest of my life, and I’m certainly not going to pay millions of dollars for it.
But then again, Brad collaborated with the jeweler for a whole year to craft the perfect ring for Angelina, so that’s very sweet.
What do you guys think? Do I just have a problem appreciating the beauty of diamonds? Do you love the ring? Can you even wait for the wedding? Let me know!
