PUBLIC OPINION > Aniston's Engagement Ring Is Better Than Jolie's

Living 2012/04/18 16:00:00
We finally got an up-close look at Angelina Jolie's engagement ring, and it's beyond impressive. The 10-carat piece is estimated at close to $1 million, cut from the finest quality diamond. But the rock instantly drew comparisons to the last ring Pitt unleashed -- on Jennifer Aniston in 1999. That one was only worth $500,000 (probably closer to $650,000 after adjusting for inflation), but the spiral design was more visually striking. We asked the public to pick the better ring.

Evidently, money isn't everything when it comes to engagement rings. Despite a huge gap in price, Aniston's ring (the cheaper one) came out on top by a wide margin. Some voters said Jolie's ring looked too much like a charm bracelet because of its rectangular shape, while others went for Aniston's ring based solely on the fact that it was Aniston, and Aniston is gorgeous. Beyond that, it was just a matter of taste. Jen's ring was called "classy," "sophisticated," and "pretty." Jolie's got "simple," "mature," and "modern."

Men Are More Into Jolie's

Typically, it doesn't matter much what the men think about the engagement ring. The only person it has to please is the woman wearing it. Of course, it's always nice if her girlfriends admire it, too. In that case, Jen's ring is even more appropriate.

Jen's Appeals to the Youth

We were particularly struck by commenters' use of the word "mature" to describe Jolie's cut, because it also happened to correlate strongly with age. The older a voter was, the more likely they were to pick Jolie's ring. Jen's, on the other hand, appealled much more to younger voters.

A Mature Cut for the Married

Naturally, if older voters are going with Jolie's ring, it makes sense that married voters are, too. However, respondents in an unmarried relationship were even less into Jolie's ring than singles. Just 9% of voters in an unmarried relationship prefered Jolie's.

    Why is everybody still pitting them against each other years on?? I think they've gotten over it, it's time everyone else does.

    Jennifer's is more cute. but why does this comparison even matter! the issue here is who's going to bed Brad Pitt on their honeymoon of course
  • Muriel 2012/04/19 22:11:51
    Sparkle isn't everything. Those who know, size, cut, clarity are aware Jolie's ring is far more exclusive and beautiful. There is beauty in simplicity.
  • wes 2012/04/19 21:10:32
    Anything on Jennifer's hand is better..........

    you like Pitt's taste?
    both were design by him, only Jolie's is more expensed and simple and classic... I say that Pitt's taste has improved... like his taste in ladies!
  • bbwolf35 2012/04/19 18:57:04
    I like Emerald cut diamonds (classy and classic) and Jolie has much prettier hands. Anniston's ring looks like it was designed my someone who also designs cheap and flashy bling.

    I find it funny that the group who like Jolie's ring is the older group. I thought it looked like something an older lady would wear.

    Ok here is more on my comment. I don't think that it matters whose is prettier. Honestly can you not just be happy for the BOTH of them!!! I mean damn for real. Dude it's good that they are engaged. But does it matter on which one is prettier???
  • Flamingolady 2012/04/19 12:55:41
    As a former jewelry designer and jewelry appraiser, let's just say this: The type of rough stones that Angelina's ring is cut from is much more rare, her stones MUST be of highest clarity for the shape of the stones, I believe they are all Emerald cut or baguettes, and the highest appraisal I ever did was on a ring similar to this one. Quality is usually so perfect on this type of ring. So, from my eye's view, I would choose Angelina's.
  • Stacie 2012/04/19 12:03:28
    ...... Jennifer is as well.

    Yep, but you should get your money's worth. 10 carat, Emerald shaped, fine cut, VVS1 or 2, & color about G to J. Probably 750 to 850 kiloBucks. You got ripped off, Brad!!
  • Fariborz-Zak 2012/04/19 07:15:52

    I think both rings are rather ugly. --But most people simply like Jennifer better than "that other woman!"

    Did Jen also became "the other women"?

    I doubt Jennifer cares about the ring. She's happy for the couple and with her own relationship. She just wants to live her life without constantly being compared to Angelina Jolie.

    But with that said, I'd have chosen Jennifer's ring, too. I like the spiral.
