At first glance,Â Aniston’s stunning engagement ring from actor/director Justin Theroux seemed a bit on the…well, too large! Aniston had always come across to me as a simple gal who didn’t need to don such over-the-top pieces.
But perhaps that is just how Hollywood rolls…big.
Here’s the breakdown of the ring…and remember, if you like this ring, or aspects of this ring, we can custom design a larger-than-life piece especially made for the star in you.
Set on the best quality platinum band the diamond is rumoured to be a whopping 8 carats. Due to the flat table top nature of the emerald cut, the diamond is said to be of the highest quality with no inclusions or flaws.

When Kate Beckinsale donned these engagement rings, the bridal world went wild. The horizontal setting, the delicate craftsmanship, the simplicity and romance of it…brides wanted rings just like those precious stackable bands.
Well, one of our clients wanted rings reminiscent of Kate’s, with her own personal touches. Here’s what we presented to her:
The keystone setting from east to west is such a unique element that it sets this ring apart from similar pave designs. The stack bands are perfect for mixing, matching and creating extra sparkle.

Reading this over coffee today, I couldn’t help but see how someone with a jewelry background could make the move into the world of psychology. We are our own kind of psychologists. Jewelers don’t just make a product; we create jewelry based on our client’s deepest dreams and wishes surrounding love. You couldn’t ask for a bigger psychological connection than that!
I couldn’t find an image of Cybil’s ring yet but wanted to share this interesting “love found again” story:
CYBILL SHEPHERD will become a therapistâ€™s bride when sheâ€™s done playing a politicianâ€™s wife. â€śIâ€™m engaged,â€ť the 62-year-old actress, who is starring in â€śThe Best Manâ€ť on Broadway, exclusively told the Newsâ€™ theater critic Joe Dziemianowicz. â€śHe was a jeweler. Now, heâ€™s a psychologist. Heâ€™s Serbian.â€ť
Shepardâ€™s â€śheâ€ť is Andrei Nikolajevic, who still knows his gems, judging by the gorgeous sparkler set in white gold on her left hand. But she said no one has questioned her new jewelry as of yet. â€śItâ€™s not my job to tell them,â€ť she says. Shepherd, whose ex-husbands include David Ford and Bruce Oppenheim, adds Nikolajevic popped the question a couple weeks ago here in NYC. â€śIt was very romantic and on one knee,â€ť she says of her fiancĂ©, whom she met through friends. â€śI never thought Iâ€™d get married again.â€ť

They say that three times the charm and let’s hope this holds true for Drew. If the ring is any indicator, they should do pretty darn well.
