After seven years of co-habitating, raising a family, and remaining Hollywood's preeminent "It" couple, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are finally engaged. Now that the looming question of marriage has been addressed, we ask two remaining questions: What are the details on Pitt's proposal? And how beyond-fabulous is Jolie's new bling?

We answer the latter-- In typical Brangie center of the universe fashion, Jolie's ring shines at 16-carats, estimated in value at $500,000 reports US Weekly. The center stone is a 7-carat emerald-cut diamond. Meanwhile, an additional 9 carats of emerald-cut diamonds surround the band of the ring. Significance to be explained.

Meanwhile, it seems that Pitt put much thought and care into the creation of the ring. Jeweler-turned-household name Robert Procop (lucky guy) told reporters that he spent a year designing the ring with Brad, adding that the unique shape of the ring was set to accentuate Jolie's lean, slender fingers. For her debut as the future Mrs. Brad Pitt, Jolie wore a silk, ivory L'Agence blouse, wide-legged pants and a rather stunning piece of jewelry on her left ring finger at an exhibit tour.

With this level of detail, we're certain that every morsel of this wedding will have a much greater effect on its corresponding industries. From the invitations to Brad's hair to Angie's dress, you'll hear from us until Brangelina utters, "I do."
