It took $500,000, 16 carats worth of diamonds and a year of planning to make Angelina Jolie's engagement ring, and only days to knock it off. Robert Procop's emerald-cut ring has already be reincarnated by both high and low-end designers. Thanks to the internet and factory-style jewelry making, you don't need Brad or a bank account to try your hand at the look. As of now, Kate's blue sapphire still holds the lead for most reproductions. But by the time you get to the end of this Jolie knock-off slideshow that could have changed.
