When it came to designing Natalie Portman‘s engagement ring, the star’s choreographer fiancé, Benjamin Millepied, relied on his leading lady and the art of ballet for inspiration. Looking to create a one-of-a-kind love token to reflect Portman’s unique sensibilities, Millepied called on former dancer pal and jewelry designer Jamie Wolf. “Ben was exceptionally thoughtful and dedicated and patient to make sure we had everything right,” Wolf explained to InStyle. “We wanted everything about the ring to speak to things that are important to Natalie.” The glittering diamond-encrusted design centers around an antique diamond, surrounded by certified conflict-free stones and made of recycled platinum — thus appealing to Portman’s earth-friendly and vegan lifestyle. And much like Millepied, the designer always incorporates her own dance discipline into her pieces. “My career with the New York City Ballet definitely influenced the aesthetics of my designs; everything I love has a distinct femininity to it, a certain ease and grace,” Wolf told the magazine in November. “To quote one of my favorite ballet teachers, ‘No one wants to see how hard you are working.'” We’re sure the Oscar nominated bride-to-be can relate to that!

Conflict free means that the diamonds were created in a lab, as opposed to mined, and therefore no loss of lives or resources occurred while producing them. FYI.
