Are Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez engaged? A few weeks ago, when she was photographed wearing a big emerald sparkler on her ring finger, the speculation was rampant. And now, People is saying it’s true — because a rep at Gurhan jewelry says Olivier did in fact give her a diamond and emerald engagement ring. (Side note: What is it with gossipy jewelers these days?)
Well, he bought the ring and she’s wearing it. But is that a confirmation that the couple, who have been dating since late 2010 after they met on the set of Dark Tide, are actually tying the knot? Maybe it’s just, like, a promise ring or something. After all, Halle did declare back in 2007 to InStyle: “I will never, never get married again. Actually, it’s just that now I’ve come to a place where I think two people can share their lives without the ring, without the piece of paper.”
So, yeah, that’s a ring, but not necessarily a piece of paper. After failed marriages to David Justice and Eric Benet, Berry, 45, is understandably put off by the institution. But maybe she’d like 4-year-old Nahla (whose father is Gabriel Aubry) to grow up with a stepfather? The 46-year-old Olivier, whom we will always think of as the guy who seduced Diane Lane away from her marriage to Richard Gere in Unfaithful, has never been married.
