Coast Diamond Congratulates Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie on August Wedding

Hollywood is buzzing this week with news that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie finally tied the knot!

The wedding took place in secret at their home Chateau Miraval in the south of France, and the couple’s six children were part of the intimate ceremony.

Brad popped the question back in April 2012 with an incredible emerald cut diamond engagement ring as seen in the picture below:

Love the emerald cut look but don’t have the $250,000 budget that Brad reportedly spent on the ring? Consider a precious and rare gemstone, cut in a similar shape, like the one in this stunning engagement ring designed by Jay Gilbert, owner at Coast Diamond. This beautiful one-of-a-kind engagement ring features a 17.26 carat emerald cut aquamarine, surrounded by a halo of round pave set diamonds.

This ring, and other unique color gemstone and traditional diamond engagement rings and wedding bands, are available at Coast Diamond authorized dealers across the U.S.

And although there are no official Pitt/Jolie wedding photos yet, we did find a bit of Brangelina wedding news on this video clip from Hollywood Life:

Congratulations to a lovely couple who does so much good for the world.

Love,

Coast Diamond: Engagement Ring Trends We Love

Welcome to Coast Diamond’s first blog post! We’re thrilled you’re reading this and invite you to share your favorite Coast posts with friends. Be sure to follow us to stay up-to-date on the latest engagement ring, jewelry and bridal news, too.

Today we share three engagement ring trends that brides are embracing:

1) Rose Gold Diamond Engagement Rings: Rose gold rings are ultra-romantic and reminiscent of something you might find in your grandmother’s jewelry box. According to The Knot, rose gold represents love. Brides-to-be are embracing our modern, traditional and halo settings, including this stunning Coast Diamond Rose Gold engagement ring that is timeless:

 2) “Flower” Diamond Engagement Rings: Flowers are nature’s kiss to the human race, so it makes sense that a bouquet is offered as a romantic gesture while courting, and is also carried by the bride on her wedding day. Several Coast Diamond engagement rings, like the one below, feature “petals” of diamonds:

3) Round and Cushion-Cut Sapphire Engagement Rings: Princess Diana said “yes” to Prince Charles when he proposed with an exquisite blue sapphire engagement ring set in a halo of diamonds. Kate Middleton accepted the same ring from Prince William and today women across America are adding this gorgeous Coast Diamond Sapphire ring to their wish lists:
