Olivier reportedly also clarified reports about the engagement ring, allegedly saying, "There is a jeweler taking credit for doing the ring and it's a lie! They have nothing to do with this."

Olivier added that the ring was actually designed by legendary Parisian jeweler Robert Mazlo, who the actor described as "a real artist," whose family has been designing jewelry "for kings and queens for many centuries."

The impending union will be Halle's third marriage.
