Brad and Jennifer's ring riddle
Ring of truth: Pitt and Aniston stunned fans at a Sting concert

Friends star Jennifer Aniston has fuelled speculation that she is engaged to Hollywood heart-throb Brad Pitt by showing off a diamond ring at a Sting concert.

The celebrity couple took to the stage during the gig at New York's Beacon Theatre, with 30-year-old Aniston flashing the impressive stone at the British singer.

Fight Club star Brad's representative plays down rumours
The actress joined Sting in a rendition of his new single Fill 'Er Up - which is about a couple heading to Las Vegas to wed and includes a reference to a diamond ring.

A spokesman for Aniston played down the significance of the jewellery.

"She has a ring, but it's not an engagement ring," said Steve Huvane.

Brad Pitt's representatives were equally dismissive of rumours that the pair are actually planning to wed.

"They were showing off the ring to Sting because the song is about getting married as a joke."

The high spirits seem to have continued when Hollywood's hottest couple accompanied Sting and wife Trudie Styler to a restaurant.

The foursome posed for cameras with green bottle tops stuck to their foreheads.

However, according to reports in the New York Daily News, Aniston confirmed to a fellow diner that Pitt had proposed to her and that the couple were now engaged.

Fight Club star Brad Pitt, 36, was allegedly dumped by former girlfriend Gweneth Paltrow in 1997 because he refused to set a wedding date.
