Penelope Cruz engaged and getting married?

Penelope Cruz wore a big sapphire and diamond rock on her ring finger to the New York Film Festival premiere of ‘Broken Embraces.’ Was it an engagement ring? She wouldn’t say. She seems to be engaged to Javier Bardem.

Penelope Cruz is reportedly shopping around for a designer to make her wedding gown.  According to In Touch Weekly, the 35-year-old actress, who is reportedly engaged to actor Javier Bardem, has been meeting with her favorite designers in preparation for the couple’s rumored wedding.  “Since she and Javier are from Spain, she’d love to have a Spanish designer create her dream gown,” a friend mentioned.

Cruz is said to be considering the House of Balenciaga, who designed best friend Salma Hayek’s gown for her wedding with billionaire François-Henri Pinault in February.

“Salma’s dress was specifically designed for her by the company’s creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière, and it was just beautiful,” added the source. “I’m sure they would be more than thrilled to create a gown for Penelope.”

Cruz, 35, and Bardem, 40, have yet to officially announce their engagement, but the actress was spotted wearing a sapphire ring on her engagement finger when she recently appeared on the “Late Show with David Letterman.” See the picture below:

According to a recent survey at the Knot: 40 percent of engagements occur between November through February and retailers know that one item that remains popular through the shopping season is engagement rings.

We also know that Penelope Cruz’s engagement ring is quite similar to that of Princess Diana’s.

Similar taste?

Princess Diana’s Engagement Ring – In the early 1980s, no single piece of jewelry represented a fairy tale romance more than Princess Diana’s engagement ring. The Princess of Wales had captured the public’s heart, and her exquisite taste in fine gems became an icon for the royal feeling every bride wants on her wedding day.

Prince Charles initially proposed without an engagement ring, insisting that Diana consider the implications of the role of his wife – being a couple under constant camera barrage and the pressure to provide the next generation’s heir – before accepting. Diana, however, needed little encouragement, and after she accepted a selection of engagement rings was presented for her consideration by Garrard Jewellers. Diana choose an oval blue sapphire engagement ring that weighed in at an astounding 18 carats and was surrounded by 14 small diamonds in an elegant cluster setting.

Do you think she is really engaged?  Do you think the Press will ambush her actuall wedding and get pictures?

  1. I’m sorry but Penelope Cruz can’t compare to the integrity and class that Princess Diana had. Princess Diana did so much to help those less fortunate that she left a legacy for others to carry on. What legacy has Penelope Cruz left?

    1. Michelle,
      Penelope Cruz has been involved in many charities like:

      •21st Century Leaders
      •Global Green
      •ONE Campaign
      •(RED)
      •St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
      •The Art of Elysium
      •UNICEF
      •Whatever It Takes

      I think she is leaving a positive legacy too.
