(Reuters) - Angelina Jolie has been photographed wearing a large diamond ring on her engagement finger, fueling speculation on Friday that she was now engaged to her long-time partner Brad Pitt.
Jolie, Pitt and their son Pax attended a private viewing at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Wednesday, and the Oscar-winning actress was wearing the large, rectangular diamond ring on her left hand, a museum spokeswoman told Reuters.
Photos of the three, with Jolie wearing the ring, were released to the media, and jewelry designer Robert Procop said he had designed the ring in collaboration with Pitt, specifically for the actress.
"The full creative journey - from conception to completion - took a year, with Brad Pitt waiting until the perfect moment to unveil this special jewel to Angelina Jolie," Procop's spokeswoman said in a statement on Friday.
Pitt and Jolie have been a couple since 2005, and are raising six children together, but they have never married.
Representatives for the couple, dubbed Brangelina by celebrity media, were not immediately available for comment on Friday about the possibility of an official engagement to marry.

Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt: Though Jolie adopted her first child, Maddox from Cambodia in 2002 while still married to Billy Bob Thornton, she retained custody of him after the couple split. Shortly after she and Pitt began dating in 2005, she adopted daughter Zahara from Ethiopia, and Pitt soon after legally adopted the little girl and Maddox as well, giving them the last names of Jolie-Pitt. After the couple had their first biological child, Shiloh, they then adopted a son named Pax from Vietnam in 2007.
