Jennifer Aniston's New 'Engagement' Ring — Better Than Brad Pitt's?

Jen is sporting what looks to be an engagement ring on her right hand — the same hand she wore Brad’s 500K ring on. But which ring fits Jen’s personality better?

Jennifer Aniston has moved across the country, changed her wardrobe, and downsized drastically since starting to date Justin Theroux. Even her taste in jewelry is different! We told you the actress is sporting an amethyst ring on her right hand ring-finger — it’s her birth stone, but does this ring reflect the “new Jen” or the “real Jen”?

Brad Pitt proposed to Jen with a gorgeous sparkler in 1999 estimated to cost about $500,000. He co-designed the ring with Silvia Damiani and it symbolized eternity. They even went to far as to sue the jewelry designer for replicating the ring years later. But now, Jen is wearing a simple and understated antique ring.

Do you think Jen’s less traditional ring fits the relaxed Jen that was there all along? Jen now lives with Justin in her $5.9 million West Village apartment — far smaller than her $38 million Beverly Hills estate that she sold in June. Jen’s style is even changing. Jen and Justin dress alike in matching black and leather ensembles and he clearly brings out an edgy side of her.

Not to mention Jen finally cut her hair in February, changing a ‘do that she had worn for years. And of course, Jen smiles all the time! The normally reserved actress is constantly grinning from ear-to-ear.

Does this ring symbolize the changes Jen has made in her life and how Justin lets her be herself?
