We recently reported that Angelina had swapped her diamond wedding ring for a simple gold band when she left to Africa for a UN visit.
According to Grazia magazine, Brad Pitt gave her his great-grandmother’s wedding ring because she didn’t want to wear her massive diamond in developing countries Congo and Rwanda.
Angelina decided to remove her fancy engagement ring for her recent UN visit and shortly before she flew out, Brad Pitt surprised her by giving her the plain gold band.
A source told the magazine : “She said she didn’t want to wear her engagement ring because she thought it was important not to be ostentatious with clothes and jewelry when in a poor region.
“Brad said he completely understood why she couldn’t wear her engagement ring, but he really wanted to give Angelina something special and more understated to wear instead.
The UN Ambassador travelled to the Congo with UK Foreign Secretary William Hague on an anti-rape mission.
“According to insiders on the trip, Angelina, who raises six children with Brad — was enamored by the gold band. The source added: “She couldn’t stop playing with the replacement ring, which everyone was calling the ‘trick ring’.”
