Ines de Ramon was used to beautiful things long before she met Brad Pitt.
The 32-year-old jewelry executive, who’s said to be “officially” dating Pitt, 59, spends her days surrounded by jewels as a vice president of Anita Ko jewelry in Los Angeles, where she has been based in recent years.
But de Ramon grew up far from Tinseltown on the shores of Lake Geneva in a posh suburb called Cologny where her father reportedly works in finance. She attended the local middle school and was an avid runner before completing a bachelor’s degree in business administration at the University of Geneva.
Her family is originally from Madrid, Spain; and de Ramon speaks multiple languages including French, English, German and Italian.
A Swiss blogger reported that friends of de Ramon at her Geneva high school, Calvin College, said she was “among the most popular girls at the school.”
During this period, just over a decade ago, de Ramon was often pictured in local luxury, jetsetty magazines like Cote, which caters to high-end residents of Switzerland and France In one edition of Cote, she was photographed with pal Axel Harari, now a prominent architect in Geneva who is also involved in a portfolio of posh hotels and residential buildings.
After working at Christie’s auction house in Geneva and at a local hotel in client services, de Ramon moved to New York in 2014 where she worked at the de Grisogono jewelry company before relocating to Los Angeles four years later to join Anita Ko.
The “Babylon” actor and de Ramon were recently photographed out together in Hollywood, Calif. on Pitt’s 59th birthday Dec. 18. They were snapped getting out of a car before making their way to celebrate his big day.
Two days before Pitt’s birthday, the pair got cozy during an afterparty for the Los Angeles premiere of “Babylon,” Pitt’s latest flick. According to People, the Oscar winner, 58, and de Ramon, 32, were seen mingling with guests and occasionally placed their arms around each other.
The pair first sparked dating rumors in November when they were seen rocking out together at a Bono concert in LA. But it appears their connection dates back even further.
“He’s known her for awhile as a friend,” a source close to Pitt told The Post Friday. “He’s spent time with her before. She’s someone he knows and trusts and feels safe with. His friends are really happy for him. But I’d be careful about not overstating things at this point. They are just enjoying each other for now.”
Pitt and de Ramon reportedly arrived at the Bono show together before joining up with Cindy Crawford, Rande Gerber, and Sean Penn. The duo were photographed holding hands during the performance.
Last week, a source told Us Weekly that Pitt is “smitten” with de Ramon, while another source told People that the duo is planning on spending New Year’s Eve together. “Ines said that Brad is very sweet,” the source said.
High-profile relationships are nothing new for de Ramon, who is also a certified nutritionist and holds several gemological certificates. She was previously married to “The Vampire Diaries” actor Paul Wesley for three years. They ended things around May 2022.
“The decision to separate is mutual and occurred 5 months ago,” their rep said in a statement obtained by People in September 2022, adding, “They request privacy at this time.”
Pitt — who shares six children with Angelina Jolie — has been embroiled in a lengthy divorce battle with the “Girl, Interrupted” actress since 2019. The former couple infamously met on the set of “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” and were linked together only one month after Pitt’s first wife, Jennifer Aniston, filed for divorce in March 2005.
Pitt, who tied the knot with Aniston in 2000, was most recently romantically attached to Emily Ratajkowski a few months back. The two reportedly shared a few nights out, though their relationship was never officially confirmed.
Meanwhile, Wesley, 40. has been spending his time with model girlfriend Natalie Kuckenburg.
