Jennifer Aniston’s $1 million ring details: more than 10 carats, set in yellow gold?

Note: we bought the engagement ring photo! HUZZAH. I’m so excited. Really! Anyway, people are still talking about Jennifer Aniston’s ring debut. For whatever reason. I mean, I get that people hate the size and gaudiness of the ring, and I understand the hissy fits and all that. But I do think the more interesting story is two-fold: one, why did Aniston debut her ring RIGHT NOW, this week, after months of hiding it? And two, was this ALWAYS the engagement ring? Was this the ring that Justin picked out himself and used to propose to Jennifer? Anyway, there are more details about The Ring:

As we’ve finally caught a glimpse of Jennifer Aniston‘s massive engagement ring, given to her by fiancé Justin Theroux, we’ve begun speculating on just how big and pricy the stone is!

A jewelry expert tells us that might possibly be bigger than we ever imagined! Gemology and Jewelry Expert with 14 year of experience, Anthony Sarkissian of Beverly Hills’ Premier Jewelry Lenders (Voted Best of Beverly Hills), gave his expert analysis of Jennifer’s ring to

“If this is a fine quality diamond of at least 10 carats, which it looks to be from initial photos, we could be talking about a million dollar ring here,” he says says. “10 carat and over diamonds command a premium price in the diamond industry, because they are more rare than smaller diamond.”

“The ring looks to be a Cushion Cut or Oval Shape diamond, mounted in a classic Halo design. It may have Micro-Pave diamonds around the center stone as well.”

“Once again, [Jennifer] is a trend-setter, going with a yellow gold setting. This is a popular trend in Europe right now, but we are just starting to see it here in the States,” he continues. “We will definitely be seeing a lot more of the yellow-gold style in the engagement rings world, especially with [Jennifer] setting the trend.”

[From Hollywood Life]

Yes, I caught the yellow gold thing earlier but I didn’t say anything. This is one of the few points where I will defer to Carrie Bradshaw: no yellow gold for engagement rings. And no pear shaped diamonds. Always err on the side of conservatism for engagement rings, I think. Aim for “classic” not “Real Housewife-gaudy”. Also: I’d be willing to bet that this is more than 10 carats. I’d put it closer to 15-18 carats. I do have to wonder: is Jennifer getting the backlash unfairly? Is this gaudy thing actually Justin’s taste?

Incidentally, Aniston was in Boston yesterday, and instead of posing for more photos with her ring, she stuck her hand in her purse to hide her ring finger. Haha.

    My engagement ring is yellow gold and I feel that it is just as timeless as platinum. I chose yellow gold because it looks better with my skin tone. Don’t get the hate for the yellow gold!

    • gee says:

      Yellow gold can be SO pretty, but sometimes it can look dated. It’s all about the way the ring is set and the cut of the stone, IMO.

      • Eleonor says:


      • apsutter says:

        Very true. It also depends on the skin tone of the person who’s wearing the gold. I actually like rose gold as well. I do agree about foregoing pear shapes though.

      • L says:

        This. It’s about the style of the ring and the setting. I know tons of people that have gold engagement rings and they are stunning. I have never heard this ‘no yellow gold-rule’ ever. Most women seem to go with whatever their usual jewelery preference is.

        Personally I don’t like gold for practical reasons. It’s a fairly soft metal and will wear out pretty quickly. Not to mention that the tines in the setting will lose strength and need to be checked every few years. White gold is plated and needs to be redipped every few years. Way to high maintenance for me.

        But that’s me. People should get a ring that makes them happy and fits their lifestyle-esp if they plan on wearing it the rest of their lives. (or in aniston’s case, the next 10 years)

    • Brown says:

      I’m sure your ring is gorgeous. It’s ridiculous to assume that no engagement rings should be yellow gold. I am not really a yellow gold person myself, but my mom’s rings are yellow gold and I love them. They are timeless and simple. My younger sister just got her college ring and chose yellow gold for it, and it’s beautiful as well.

      I’m more of a white gold/silver girl, but that’s just my personal preference and I feel like it looks better with my skin (which has a natural olive/yellow tint.) More power to the yellow gold peeps!

    • Mary says:

      I think the “no yellow gold – rule” might be an American thing. Maybe.
      Personally I love yellow gold and my engagement/wedding rings are yellow gold (well, they are antiques, so technically they aren’t really “yellow”, more old gold – if that’s a color)

      • Roxy says:

        The band on this ring is pretty slim, not much gold showing actually. I don’t know how it supports it, to be honest! But I have white and yellow gold diamond rings. Back in the 80′s in Texas all the women had huge azz gold diamond rings, cocktail rings, wedding rings, w/e…it was huge and it was gold. I got one too. My wedding rings are white gold from the 70′s. I wear lots of sterling jewelry now. I think it’s all a matter of taste and trends. Big Texas, BIG rings. Thats it. Europe, I would think thats old world and yellow gold would always be favored there. As in their art.

    • RTR_Girl says:

      Yellow gold is timeless! The preferred metal for engagement rings always changes back and forth over time. When my mom got married in the 60s, she said everyone chose white gold or platinum. In the 80s and most of the 90s, all you saw was yellow gold. I don’t get the hate for it at all. I chose a yellow gold ring in 2001 because it was far more flattering to my pasty white fingers…I tried on platinum and it just accentuated my corpse-y looking skintone.

    • thyphoid mary says:

      Totally agree with you, usually yellow gold goes better on warm skin tones while white gold pops more on cool skin tones. Platinum looks great on about any tone because of fhe hue, but yeah it tends to accentuate ivory light skin which to me is great but to others may seem too drastic.
      Anyway, Neediston’s “diamond” is more of a marble cut….LOL…it looks like she’s gonna sit on the ground and play marbles with it…hehehehehhe

      • Roxy says:

        IMO, it looks quartz-y and not sparkly at all. Kinda milky and not pretty. Maybe we need a better picture? Maybe we just shouldn’t give a sh**? Cuz, how does this matter to me or you? It doesn’t. & it won’t last, he will dump her. Sadly. Cuz I really like both of them.

    • emmieapricot says:

      Totally agree. Yellow gold is timeless and beautiful and looks incredible against skin with pink or yellow undertones.
      As for Jennifer’s ring, I was really hoping that ring was a joke/prop because it’s obnoxious and doesn’t match her self-professed laid-back style.

    • Erinn says:

      Mmmm exactly. Boyfriend and I went ring shopping, picked one out. It is yellow gold. I get a weird reaction to a white gold necklace I have, and not to anything yellow gold. I wasn’t going to make him pay for platinum. And I love my yellow gold. Everyone else seems to be jumping on the white gold band wagon- at least mine stands out.

    • MsGoblin says:

      My wedding set is yellow-gold. It’s a Southern thing…

      • Roxy says:

        It really is a southern thing, more traditional. Texas is that way, big gold! Go big or go home! Also, this is so big it draws attention to her hands, gasp! & those nails. Hmmm?

    • the original bellaluna says:

      My wedding & engagement rings are platinum for practical purposes: I react to gold, and am unable to wear it every day.

      I LIKE gold (especially rose or white – skin tone reasons), but I can only wear gold rings for less than a day, or I break out in a very ugly, very itchy rash.

      • Charlotte says:

        I have the same thing;I’m very allergic to metals. I prefer silver, but can’t wear it at all. I had my ears pierced when I was 7 and the earrings I put in caused an infection that still flares up 2 decades later. I don’t wear any jewellery as a general rule (certainly not earrings!), but if I do, it’s wooden.

      • girlnbayou says:

        Thank God! I thought I was the only one who this happened to. My first wedding band broke me out so bad I literallyhave scars from it. My mother said Its because I was in a bad marriage and God wad trying to tell me to get the hell outta dodge. On to my second marriage and now have platinum and never had one problem. Jens stone looks more like a cusion cut to me. If it is an amtique stone it might not have as much sparklebecause most stones back then werent uniformly cut so they generally didnt have as much bounce as todays precision cut diamonds

    • Janet says:

      Totally agree. I have light brown skin and only wear yellow gold, 14 or 18K. I hate platinum, it looks tacky to me. Ditto rose gold, I can’t stand it. Yellow gold is a lovely warm color. I wear it every day.

      • Mrs. O says:

        It’s so nice to know I’m not the only one who had to go platinum because of allergies! I felt bad for my now-husband. My guy friend even asked him if I was also allergic to every car but a BMW (I drive a Kia for the record). Snarky a-hole :)

  2. KellyinSeattle says:

    Laverne and Squiggy; they need to go away and be thankful for the money they have; I can think of so many actresses who deserve fame more that her,..blah blah blah. I’m tired of her hair…..I bet she goes on Ellen to talk about the emotional attachment/importance of her ring. Her hands look awful! I do like her bag…

    • Green_Eyes says:

      LOL!! Omg! Squiggly! That’s who he reminds me of, great call!! :)

    • Sirsnarksalot says:

      But what is the point if no one is paying attention to them?!?!? They are pathetic try-hard-s and I second the notion of ignoring them in hopes they’ll go away. Good call on Squiggy too!

  3. Joyce says:

    “Once again, [Jennifer] is a trend-setter

    Joke of the Day.

    • BreeinSEA says:

      Lol this x1000

    • Thalia says:

      Agreed, “once again she is a trend-setter”?

      When Huvane writes these articles for the tabloids, why does he have to make it so obvious its him? ? Subtlety or discretion is clearly not his strong point. His overt drippiness and desperation is sad.

    • Skipper says:

      I am sure they are referring to her hair. What’s funny about that.

    • Sweet Dee says:

      RIGHT! That took me back to 1998. Just like that damn stupid haircut we all got in the 90′s. Trend setter, once upon a time, yes. But now…only if she picked out the ring herself, right? And only if yellow gold and yellow diamonds catch on.

      The yellow gold I don’t mind so much but ugh canary diamond? Nothx.

  4. lower-case deb says:

    personally, i find that for my shape of hand, my mum’s rule of thumb (hee!) about wearing rings works very well, i.e. if you absolutely have to wear a rock on your finger, it must not be greater (wider/longer/both) than your pinky fingernail.

    still, i wish i can afford a huge rock, or can get someone moneyed enough to get me a huge rock. but the downside of a huge rock is that it’s very muggable. so it’d be either not wearing the huge rock at all (keep it in the safe) or hire a very fit bodyguard for the huge rock. both defeats the engagement purpose, imho. :)

    oh well. a girl can dream.

  5. Green_Eyes says:

    Well hell! I always knew I was a trend setter! now Jen? Lol my first set from hubby and my upgrade on our 10th Anniversary was yellow gold.. All my jewelry is. I have dark hair and to me white gold makes me look sallow.

  6. SamiHami says:

    I love my yellow gold engagement and wedding rings. I think they are quite beautiful. I get that other people have different tastes in jewelry, but that doesn’t automatically make mine ugly or unattractive.

  7. tru tru says:

    ahhh, to each her/his own–its a personal choice.

    I don’t care for Jen’s or Angelina’s ring, actually.

    oh, and I love yellow gold, it matches my olive complexion, I wear platinum very rarely.

  8. Steeze says:

    I love yellow gold too! all my jewellery is yellow gold so I wonder if a platinum engagement ring would look weird with the rest of my jewellery…

    I’m right in the process of choosing and I really don’t know what would be best…

    • Green_Eyes says:

      Steeze hon, it’s your ring… Don’t worry what others think or the trend. This is a very special piece that will hopefully be for a lifetime.. Go with what you love. For me it was a no brainer, I never gave into the platinum or white gold trend(just doesn’t look right on me, dark hair & skin tone – native American, yellow gold really looks best on me I think).

      Congratulations on your engagement, I hope you have a long happy life together hon…:)

    • UNF Joan Jett! says:

      I second that. If yellow gold is what you like and wear, get yourself that. It will also be easier to mix and match it with your other juwelery.

    • Melanie says:

      Plus, while I am not necessarily a Miley Cirus fan, her engagement ring–which is yellow gold–is all the rage…and Neil Lane, the celebrity designer, says that of all the celebrity rings he has designed, hers is getting the most buzz. Get what YOU love. It will be yours to treasure for a lifetime.

  9. Green_Eyes says:

    Fine quality? She needs to wash the lotion off of it then cuz it looks cloudy to me..

    • Skipper says:

      I highly doubt it is anything short of the best quality. Nice try though

      • Green_Eyes says:

        With all the lotion she lathers on hers hands then.. She needs to clean the ring. It looks cloudy.

      • Skipper says:

        At least she is staying moisturized

      • floretta50 says:

        The ring she got from Brad Pitt was more JA, not a fan but JA seem to be a very sophisticated and stylish person who chooses her clothing well but that ring looks like a wad of gum stuck on a band, more Kim kardashian style. My guess is maybe JA weanted something to show off to Brad Pitt, the price whose is more expensive, a ring could cost a trillion dollars it is who is giving it to you and how you really feel about the person and the person’s real commitment to you, so then it doesn’t matter if the ring is made of paper mache. This competition thing going on. Angie’s engagement ring look like something well thouht-out , something with meaning, I don’t know about JA ring the band seems too thin to support the size of the rock, so was that really thought about.

    • Isa says:

      It looks cloudy to me too. I don’t think it’s the lotion on its skin though. I think he went for carats over clarity. But then again it isn’t exactly a close picture.

  10. Joyce says:

    I don’t like yellow gold because it doesn’t look good on me. Also, I find yellow gold to me very traditional. Not sure if traditional is the right word. I find white gold to be very modern looking.

  11. Debra says:

    I don’t care who you are or how rich you are.. dropping 1 million on a piece of jewelry is just ridiculous

  12. Mimi says:

    Check the clip on her bag strap, now that is setting a trend right there.

    • Brown says:

      Hhahaha I must be a trendsetter, too! I have a clip on my bag strap right now. I’m so high fashion.

    • SamiHami says:

      Ive been clipping my hair clips to my purse straps for years. Keeps them handy.

      • Green_Eyes says:

        Lol! I have a clip on my bag..if it’s jot it’s on my walker or clipped somewhere on me… How funny!

      • Sugar says:

        I have one on my purse of the day, my stickshift in my car the handlebars on my bike…ya never know when u need one. We are some trend setting sexy b’s;)

  13. Cathy says:

    How can anybody wear a rock that big. I’d be afraid of losing it.

  14. venny says:

    I fell in love with yellow gold after a trip to the middle east – gorgeous yellow gold everywhere!

    • Janet says:

      What kind of yellow gold do they use mostly? Indian jewelry is almost all 22K which looks too orangey to me. I love 14 and 18K. 10K makes me itch so I never wear it.

  15. Annie says:

    I don’t get why these people spend so much on a ring when they can’t even hold on to a marriage for more than a few months/years.

    The bigger the stone, the less chance of it being anything real and lasting.

    • apsutter says:

      Yes!! The bigger and more ostentatious the ring and wedding are the shorter the marriage is. I can’t stand people who have these big elaborate weddings and make it all about themselves. It makes it easy to tell who narcissists are so I can avoid them lol

  16. apsutter says:

    I can’t stand little miss blandness up there. Who in there right mind would ever call that hideous boulder of a ring understated? Can’t wait for this relationship to tank and her career to go down the tubes. Hopefully she’ll be replaced by someone more interesting.

    • lem says:

      that’s an awful lot of ill-will you’re wishing on a person you don’t know.

      • apsutter says:

        She’s really the only celeb that I am totally sick of. I just want her and her little pr ploys to take a break.

    • mln76 says:

      The career already IS down the tubes which is why she is so desperate to milk all the publicity out of her engagement possible…

  17. Darlene says:

    It looks fake and ugly and not sparkling at all! Does it need cleaning?

    • kristiner says:

      Thank you! Lets talk about the actual ring and not the metal. People bashed the hell out of AJ’s ring. I liked it but get it is a little gaudy. But at least it looks real.

      This looks like a moonstone. That’s one big CLOUDY ass “diamond ”

      Yuck. I think they wanted to wait and see what Angelina’s ring looked like first. Then debut something bigger for more press about her ring.

      • Vesper says:

        Angelina may have a large engagement ring, but she typically wears large jewelry to formal events. Even the jewelery she designed is very large.

        Jennifer usually wears subtle jewelry or no jewelry.

  18. epiphany says:

    She paid for the ring, so I guess she can wear whatever she likes – draws attention to her Madonna-like claws, however.

    • crtb says:

      I was wondering how he could afford such an expensive ring. He makes good money but not million dollar ring kind of money.

  19. ladybert62 says:

    It is toooooooo big.

  20. Mira says:

    Sorry, Jen’s ring is ugly. So is Jolie’s. Blake Lively wins this round – while her engagement ring is nice, her wedding band is simple, elegant and stylish.

  21. Kaiser says:

    I didn’t say yellow gold was “ugly”. I just don’t care for yellow gold for engagement rings, generally speaking. I think white gold or platinum is a cleaner, more sophisticated look for a piece of jewelry you’re going to wear for the rest of your life. But yes, I’ve seen some yellow-gold engagement rings that work – sometimes.

    • Anna-fo-Fanna says:

      Kaiser, I understand what you’re saying, but white gold or platinum for engagement rings – that’s a fashion, too. It just happens to be the one you grew up with, so you think it’s classic. You have to think about it from that perspective to understand why you’re feeling backlash from some of the commenters. To a lot of people, yellow gold IS classic. It just depends on the fashion of your time.

    • kristiner says:

      Yellow gold isn’t ugly but dating and agey.

      No offense to anyone but I’m curious on the ages of all the brides on here with yellow gold rings.

      I’m 28 and I don’t know anyone under 30 with a yellow gold ring. Everything is micropave, halo this and that and white or platinum.

      Yellow gold imo tends to be second brides of 35 or people married before 2000.

      The only ones I know with yellow are in a second marriage in their 30s or older or they got married more than 15 years ago or before.

      All here with yellow I’m thinking have been married a long time 10+ years and over 30

      • the original bellaluna says:

        My first marriage (’91, so good call!) was yellow gold.

        My second (2001) is platinum. And I was 31 when we married.

        Both are princess-cut solitaires, but the second is bigger.

      • Mrs. Ari Gold says:

        The point is the trend of yellow gold is BACK. So people who are young an just getting married for the first time are starting to wear it.

    • Gayle says:

      Diamonds look best in white metal, period. Doesn’t mean yellow gold with diamonds can’t be pretty or in fashion, but some gemstones just fit certain metals better. Like I always thought emeralds were prettiest set in yellow gold, and pink gemstones in rose gold.

      • kristiner says:

        Diamonds are an ice looking gemstone. They need white metal. You’re right.

        And SOOOOO right about emeralds. Emeralds look awful in white or platinum. Yellow brings out the richness of the green.

        I really like morganites but rose and yellow gold look really bad on me. But there’s a reason you Google morganite rings and almost ALL the pictures are in rose gold.

  22. Jenna says:

    I hate yellow gold; it washes me out. I’m all about the white gold, silver or platinum.

    I still think her ring is fugly though.

  23. judyjudy says:

    He must really love her to give her such a big ring. [insert eyeroll here]

    • Anonny says:

      I’m curious how the conversation went after he presented the ring *he* bought (and you know he bought a different ring).

      “Umm, yeah. It’s nice, ya know…but [head cock to the right], dontcha think we can go just a little bit bigger? Let me call my jeweler, mmkay?”

      • truthSF says:

        You are soo bad, haha. I was totally seeing her making that comment in my minds eye while reading your post.

  24. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Not my taste – or most people’s, according to the comments – but if she is happy, more power to her. I think she is insecure and has been since the sh*t storm…so if she is happy now, awesome. Glad she is moving on…just hope this guy isnt a dbag (a la Mayer).

  25. Co says:


  26. lori says:

    I think this is probably Justin’s taste. Everyone would assume that she has the upper hand in the relationship because she’s more famous and richer. But I honestly think he has the upper hand and she got the ring that he wanted to give her.
    Not every girl “loves” their engagement ring and you don’t always get what is your own taste.

    • Hmmm says:

      I totally agree – It’s not her “normal” style with large jewellery – it seems much more him than her.

  27. BW says:

    I have a very modern, yellow gold wedding ring/engagement ring. I hate wearing two rings, so I only wear one, and it doubles as both rings. It’s asymmetrical and very striking. I get compliments on it all the time.

    I think white gold/platinum is very Edwardian looking.

    I like 3 color gold pieces, and my watch is gold and stainless steel, so I mix white and yellow and rose colored gold jewelry all the time, and it looks fine.

    Jen’s ring has absolutely no sparkle to it, and it’s out in the sun. Compare it to Blake’s ring, which was really putting out the sparkle her photos.

  28. Kate (newer one) says:

    Are coloured stones rare in US engagement rings? Here, a coloured stone with diamonds accenting it are more common than plain diamonds (though they’re perfectly normal choices, too).

    • Kelly says:

      Yes, in my experience, it’s very rare for an American engagement ring to be anything other than a diamond. It may be offset with other gems, but the main jewel is almost always a diamond.

      I wish we did have a little more variety. I love seeing engagement rings from other countries with different gems.

      • Micki says:

        My german husband chose a platinum band with heart-formed sapphire.I like it because it’s unusual but have lots of wellow gold jewellery too.If I like a piece I don’t care much about the colour, only if I can afford it or not.LOL

    • mandygirl says:

      I love colored stones. My husband got me a round 1-carat ceylon sapphire with a diamond wrap as my wedding band (white gold). I had a lady stop me in a store recently and ask if it was a family heirloom. (And we’re American, BTW…)

      I also don’t get the “forgo pear-shaped diamond” mentality. My friend has a beautiful pear-shaped engagement ring with yellow gold…I just love it.

      To each her own. :)

    • dappadaph says:

      Rarely do you see a sapphires or emeralds given as a engagement rings here. I think they are beautiful especially sapphires and wish I have the forethought 13 yrs ago to look at color stones so my fiance/now husband had another choice.
      And yes Mandygirl, I read alot of British historical stuff and the heirlooms are always sapphires, emeralds, & rubies

      • crtb says:

        Halle Barry’s engagement ring is an emerald.

      • Jay says:

        I really want a sapphire engagement ring. I don’t like diamonds at all. I just want something smallish, some kind of square cut, yellow gold. Whenever I find one I like, I send a photo to my boyfriend. XD

  29. Leni says:

    Overcompensate much? Is the depth of love here so shallow that it takes a stone this big to make up for it?
    Like others I assume that Aniston paid for this but let him have his head.
    For a ring that should be worn for a long time this is a little too “in the way”.
    Wish them luck.

  30. Emma says:

    That ring is straight up fug. I actually like Angelina’s ring even though I can see why people wouldn’t. It’s simple, different, sleek and understated. Brad had Angelina in mind when he made the ring whereas Justin just bought the biggest one in display.

    • Kelly says:

      ITA. I didn’t really like Angie’s at first, it was just giving me a deco vibe. But it’s grown on me, especially considering how much effort Brad put into making sure it fit her style, which it does perfectly.

    • Camille (TheOriginal) says:

      @Emma: I agree with *everything* you said.

  31. hmmm says:

    It’s still vulgar.

  32. Kellie says:

    Do I like the ring? Nope. But honestly, I could care less about the setting and size of the diamond, lets jut be happy someone proposed to her. Some women will live a lifetime and never experience that.

    • Nikita says:

      True, and she had this 2 times. she had brad pitt as a husband, justin cheated for her and left his girlfriend of 14!! years. she had a wonderfull wedding, a great career as rachel, earns lots of millions. shes superrich and famous and STILL, there are some airheads out there who feels sorry for her and write that she SO DESERVES to be happy. as if she went through a war, was raped or was left alone with 3 kids an no money. some people are just out of reality. She is a VERY lucky Woman!!
      EVERYBODY deserves to be lucky!!!! Even Heidi Bivens, but her fans puke on her. Cause shes not Rachel..

      • Nikita says:

        Oh no sorry, i have to correct myself, she was engaged for 3 times!!! I forgot the ugly one donovan or whats his name?

      • Thalia says:

        Tate. Tate Donovan. She also stole him from Sandra Bullock, too. She has a history of homewrecking and stealing other women’s men. You speak the truth about Aniston. Oh and this is in reply to your post #45 so I’ll post it here because for some reason it won’t go through, so:

        Heidi is the winner though because she had him when he was younger, hotter and not going bald. Aniston has Heidi’s older sloppy seconds. Heidi is well rid of his cheating douchebag ass and she better off without him, now his cheating is Aniston’s problem. Justin is exactly what Aniston deserves. They both well and truly deserve each other”

        Finally! Someone telling it like it is and what she is! And poor Heidi has been forgotten in the Jen/Justin triangle. She is one to keep a triangle going. And to clarify, the above pose is based on an Angie/Brad photo where Angie is caressing Brad’s face at the Palm Beach Film Festival. Jen can’t even think of anything original.

  33. Rux says:

    I was watching the Wendy Williams Show — no judging — and they had the ring at 500K but that was not the interesting part. So Jenn is the bigger star with a bigger bank account HOWEVER Justin is wealthy in his own right as he is valued at over 10 million. I am only stating this because I thought the guy may be budget in net worth compared to Aniston.

  34. Jackie O says:

    one of the ugliest engagement rings i have ever seen.

    maybe it is better up close. for that ridiculous amount of money, i sure hope so.

    beyond vulgar.

  35. madpoe says:

    Out of curiousity, how many of us see them married still in their 70′s and 80′s?

  36. Lurkeelee says:

    For the writer of the article to say the stone looks high quality must not be looking at the same photos we are. It doesn’t look clean at all, more opaque even. I cannot believe that thing would cost 1mil. Per the interwebz, Justin’s net worth is anywhere between 4.5 mil to 10 mil depending on the article. So we are to believe he supposedly spent up to 25% of his networth on this bauble (insert eye roll here). Is Justin trying to be Kris Humphries or something?

  37. roxy750 says:

    So the bigger, more expensive and gaudier the diamond the more he should love her? Sad. Love isn’t about this. This display some Hollywood peeps do is sad, like they think they need this? Serious. A big clump of money dumped into something you wear on your hand….when there are a ton more things you could do with it…just kinda sad and just sayin.

    On the other hand—she has had that purse for quite some time, I get it, when something works it works…so…I don’t know how it’s relevant, just adding.

  38. Mac says:

    Justin’s body language seems peculiar.

    It appears as though he’s reluctant to even touch her.

  39. Suzy (from Ontario, Canada) says:

    I think just like ring style trends come and go, so does the colour of the band. When my Mom married white gold was very popular and the style was always a traditional solitaire. When I married yellow gold was very popular as were cluster diamond rings. Now you see a lot of diamond bands which weren’t around years ago and the style of diamond setting is very different again. Styles come and go. Most important is that the people getting married are happy with it.

  40. teehee says:

    So wait a minute…. is this supposed to be some measure of her worth as a woman, based on what ring a guy can get her? Or the worth of a guy, what kind of ring he can afford?
    Why is this an issue?

  41. kira says:

    Maybe, this is the Hollywood female version of the middle=aged dude who buys himself a candy-apple red sports car? ;-)

    Oh, look, there’s paparazzi taking my pictures in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Just pose and pretend you adore me…staged pictures look staged

  42. Liberty says:

    JT: I told you everyone would love our ring! I need more pictures for my new label!

    JA: …..Label?

    JA: Yeah, so, my babe, I’m launching my own label, like, streetwear for the city dude who’s hot but cold, rich yet poor, tough yet waxed, artiste but chowhound, steak but smoothie, in the game with a foot out the door. Jeans, tees… it’s called: Theroux-a-GoGo! The tagline: Meat. Packed!

    JA: — What?

    JT: The ads will show me in my Theroux-a-GoGo Savaged Leather Santa Fe Jacket, running out of buildings or totally eluding paps in the park, jumping over benches with guns and a latte. I’m helping the design team with inspirational quotes for charms on my quad-wrap TherSoulx Magic man-bracelets, and oh, I’m getting a ring made for myself too. It’s going to be huge! Like the deerskin Mighty Thongroux!

    JA: WHAT?

    JT: So yeah, keep wearing your ring around with your old pants and jackets so it looks like accessible, like, superstar, but, diamond Big Gulp, that would be awesome. Can you call Ellen again? I’ll send her a ring too. And, my babe, I just need like a few more millies and — boom!

    JA: — I – old – this – you –

    JT: — I’ll bet the lady magazines will be all over it, my babe. Like, this is 2012, the year you totally gave birth – to ME!

    JA: Add a perfume called Rachel No. 5, and I’m in, my olive-oiled prosciutto of plotting.

  43. gg says:

    I love yellow gold as much as platinum, wear both, always will, and I’m still going with that thing is at LEAST 18 carats.

    So let’s see a photo !

  44. G says:

    I get that this type of thing is an investment. It’s just not something anyone will wear everyday and love. I get the value of this stone, but this ring has no design and no style of any sort either.

    Even regular people have gone over board with these showstopping rings. It’s supposed to be a token of your love, not a statement of your net worth. A thing can never embody that complexity.

  45. Nikita says:

    Heidi Bivens must be heartbroken….

    The ring is simply ugly and it finaly shows her real inner bi.tch, shes a spoiled rich idiot with to much time thinking about herself.

    • fatgirl says:

      Well said Nikita. Her fathers’ country (Greece) is suffering because of the austerity measures and she buys herself a million dollar ring. She lives in her own world with the rest of the greedy rich!!

      • G says:

        Really? I’m not an Aniston fan, but Greece is suffering because of their massive black market economy and entitlement spending. Laying that on Jennifer is ridiculous.

      • Loira says:

        Should not really bring this here, but since some posters criticized AJ for the ring BP gave her, saying how the money could be used for other charities… Kind of the same… Why don’t they do this or that?
        It is their money. In my opinion, the ring can be ugly or not, cloudy or not, what is funny here is the timing and the way they do pr things.

  46. lucy2 says:

    I don’t really like the cut or the yellow gold, but who cares what others think – as long as the person wearing it is happy, what’s the difference.

  47. JessSaysNo says:

    UGH! So gaudy and gross. We already know she is rich, why pick something so showy? Tack city.

  48. skuddles says:

    Now I’m even more convinced that Jen paid for this gaudy bauble herself. And I also suspect this is her way of one upping uh.. you know.

  49. Isa says:

    It should be pretty but it’s not. It doesn’t look like a good cut. It doesn’t look like its very clear.
    But to me, anything over 3 carats in one rock is too much.

  50. the original bellaluna says:

    Surely there has to be a better picture of the ring out there. Links anyone?

  51. Martin says:

  54. Lindsey says:

    Yellow gold? gag me

  55. blonde on the dock says:

    Based on this photo how can one tell what the ring really looks like. They look happy to me.

  56. Mrs. Ari Gold says:

    I am one of the few that likes her but I think the ring is obscene.

  57. LadyL says:

    Tacky… But almost anything is better than that piece of copper wire Richard Gere gave to Cindy Crawford.

  58. Janet says:

    I don’t care how much it cost, it’s his money (or more likely her money), but any ring that costs a million bucks should look like a million bucks. That thing looks like it came from a dime store. They may be long on money but they are way short on taste and class.

  59. hoya_chick says:

    Just curious as to whose ring (celebrity-wise) you ladies like? We are so b!tchy that we never like anything! Off the top of my head I can’t think of anyone whose ring stands out but I’m sure there are some stunners out there that I am forgetting about.

    This ring is making me long for Blake No-So Lively’s ring lol.

    I agree with Kaiser and Carrie Bradshaw, I’m not a fan of gold bands or pear shaped diamonds. Jen’s stone looks cloudy and way too big and clunky. I don’t like it.

    • Original N says:

      I posted this below, but one of my favorites that we have seen was the one that Brad designed for Jen …

    • LadyL says:

      I think Reese Witherspoon’s engagement ring is the nicest amongst the celebrity rings as of late. It’s four stunning carats in a simple, delicate setting. Too big for my subway riding lifestyle, but shocking “normal” by Hollywood standards.

    • CG says:

      I can’t believe I’m typing this, but I LOVED the engagement ring Britney bought herself when she and KFed got engaged. And I don’t like yellow gold for engagement/wedding rings either, but my mom and aunts (all in their 50s) all have yellow gold wedding sets and think that’s the only way to go, so maybe it’s a generational thing?

  60. Talia says:

    The ring is really not to my taste, but I do not think it looks gaudy on her. It is a simple one stone ring, not very ornate in style (except when you factor in the total carat weight). I like that the stone appears to be a diamond in a rough, it has a boho feel to it, kinda like her style. I think people create drama where there is none. If she likes the ring who cares what other people think?

  61. Molly says:

    This makes me anxious. Guy is w/a woman for 14 years, suddenly leaves her after not even breaking up w/her, and gets engaged a year after the breakup of a 14 year relationship?

    Come on, Jen, you could do so much better and healthier!

  62. The Original Mia says:

    That ring is still ugly. If they were going to go with yellow gold, then why go with a cut that made the diamond look cloudy? It looks like a ring out of a vending machine, not like a $1M ring.

    Psst…Jen, get your money back. Make them do it over.

  63. flower says:

    Remember way back when Brad and Jen got engaged there was such a hooha over the ring, Brad designed it and they even tried suing a few jewelers who reproduced it. That ring was considered uber classy and fabulous (at the time). Lordy what happened to her taste or has she been this tacky all along and just hid it well.

    • truthSF says:

      Iif Brad designed the ring, wouldn’t it be his style that is classy and fabulous? If you think about, even the Rachel hairstyle she was sporting wasn’t her idea, but her hairstylist. She was just the “model” of the hairdo. And remember, she HATED that style.

    • Original N says:

      I truly loved the engagement ring that Brad designed for JA … I thought it was timeless, elegant, and absolutely stunning. I have pieces of sea glass that look better than that thing she is wearing on her finger now!

  64. bELLA says:

    Looks like a ring a spoiled brat would want…..It looks cloudy and fake.

  65. lisa2 says:

    I don’t think ring is pretty. I think for her fans it is just another example of how she is not that simple girl next door. That ring just look like someone got the biggest stone they could find and put in a setting. It looks too big for the setting band. Like there was a smaller stone and it was replaced with something bigger. Thing is it reminds me or her house when it was decorated. Her fans were surprised by how modern it was and not her style. She drives a huge Bentley like not a simple woman. She is now sporting a ring her fans said would be understated and simple… like her. NOT

    maybe her fans and the public doesn’t really know this woman or her taste.

  66. Newtsgal says:

    I think it’s nice that SHE bought herself a ring!

  67. Locamochagirl says:

    How the heck is yellow gold not classic?! I have yellow gold and am a red head, so it goes well with my hair. I have a yellow gold band with a round solitaire that’s set in platinum prongs. Doesn’t get much more classic than that…? I will say pear shape is not my thing.

  68. Suze says:

    That is one huge rock. Wow. I don’t think I personally like it, but it may look better in person.

    As far as the metal in engagement rings goes, it’s entirely cyclical, not something etched in stone. My grandmother, married in the thirties, had a yellow gold ring. My mother, married in 1960, had a white gold ring. I, married in 1990, had a yellow gold ring. And my niece, married in 2007, had a platinum ring.

    So, yeah, yellow gold is ready for its comeback.

  69. boring ring says:

    This ring is so ultra PLAIN. I think a 10 year old could have designed it. Just draw an oval, and put it on a gold band. I would get bored of this ring within an hour. It would maybe be a good accent ring to a plain outfit, but as a wedding ring. No way!

  70. Suzie says:

    That ring has no sparkle from the photos I have seen. Diamonds are reknown for their sparkle, and if there is no sparkle, especially in daylight photos with the sun, it’s because a) it isn’t a diamond b) the cut of the stone by the jeweler is a bad choice for a diamond c) the photo angles just so happened to miss the mark. I need to see some reflective sparkle coming off that ring before I am convinced!

  71. lyriclark says:

    Just a quick comment….she sure could use a manicure!

  72. lisa2 says:

    So not the ring reveal makes sense. She id going to endorse some unknown hair product that she is investing in. There are pictures of her at a meeting and showing the ring. And guess when the ad campaign starts.. NOVEMBER..hmmm what else is happening in NOVEMBER.. You can clearly see the ring in the article so I guess she hid it so that it would be seen when she met with these people.

    Her fans can say whatever they want. This woman has a problem. So now she flashes the ring to go with this endorsement. I knew something was up. It all makes sense now… predictable.

  73. rosalee says:

    @Lisa2, no it’s the people who construct conspiracies, view a person’s every movement or action as nefarious. They are the ones with problems, she wore her She’s selling’s walking her’s all connected to her evil plans for world domination, shampoo and water can’t you see the connection..

  74. Dana M says:

    JA’s ring looks so fake! Not very pretty at all in my opinion. Its so cloudy.

  75. Mary says:

    Jennifer has always worn alot of jewelry. Most all of which is yellow gold. Maybe Justin had the ring made in yellow gold for that reason. If it was indeed a surprise to her why does everyone think she picked it out? Seriously people get a life. you all sound jealous!

  76. Casey says:

    that rock–literally, it looks like a chunk of quartz–is the same size as theroux’s gigantic head. i’m a bit of a diamond buff and from what i know that is either a)not a diamond, b)poorly cut/antique, c) dirty as all heck. there’s nothing wrong with it not being a diamond, i’m just curious about it.
