Halle Berry's Engagement Ring Features 4 Carat Emerald
There was a little bit of wishy-washiness surrounding Halle Berry’s engagement to Olivier Martinez for while. The couple was confirmed to be engaged due to a big honking ring and reports from friends, then the ring disappeared and the media backtracked. Thankfully, just a few days ago, Martinez officially confirmed the engagement is legitimate, which means we can get a better look at Berry’s beautiful engagement ring.
Parisian ring jeweler Robert Mazlo worked with Martinez to create Berry’s ring. It seems the couple has really enjoyed keeping secret about their upcoming nuptials, to the point where Mazlo had no idea he was being commissioned to create an engagement ring. Without that knowledge, you can kind of see how Mazlo might be a little confused. People has a photo of Berry’s ring blown up to give us a better look at the ring’s details, and, while it is gorgeous, her new ring does not exactly scream “I’m engaged!”
Mazlo’s ring design is yellow gold with a four carat emerald smack dab in the center. Two diamonds supplement the emerald. Mazlo refers to the entire design, made-up in an ancient Phoenician style, as “uncommon.” I’m sure Martinez was looking at an uncommon design for an uncommon lady when he went to Mazlo for the special gift. The ring certainly suits Berry, but I think most of us are perfectly content to stick with regular old diamonds.
