Jennifer Lopez has been engaged five times and married three times – which means she has built up an impressive ring collection.
Marc Anthony gave J-Lo the most expensive ring overall, worth a staggering £3,000,000 today, however Mr Ben Affleck didn’t disappoint us either, as the rare pink diamond he gifted to Jen is soaring in value right now – worth more than double it was at the time he proposed.
In 1997, Jen was fresh on the block when she married restauranteur Ojani Noa, who swept her off her feet with her very first engagement ring. When he popped the question he presented her with a pear-shaped diamond ring on a yellow gold band, thought to be worth a £100,000.
However, the two parted ways after a year together and then it was not until 2001 that Jennifer was offered another hand in marriage.
Chris Judd and Jennifer Lopez first crossed paths in 2000, on the set of the “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” music video, where Cris was a backup dancer for J-Lo. That same year, in June, he reportedly proposed at a barbecue, before the couple wed in a “secret” ceremony in September, where 170 guests attended.
And, while the wedding may have been low-key, her engagement ring certainly wasn’t. The incredible emerald-cut diamond ring is worth double the amount of her first ring – boasting a six figure value.
Taking a close look at the ring, our experts think it’s worth around £200,000.
Unfortunately, soon after their love story began, J-Lo then ended her marriage to the dancer in July 2002, citing irreconcilable differences.
“Jennifer Lopez and Cris Judd have announced they have resolved all issues arising out of their marriage,” the couple’s lawyers shared in a statement at the time. “The resolution was extremely amicable . . . The two will remain friends.”
Value: £2,000,000 ($2,800,000)
When Ben Affleck and J-Lo announced their first relationship way back in in 2002, the world followed their every move, in awe of the A-list couple. And, they didn’t leave fans waiting for long as they got engaged that same year. However, they didn’t quite make it down the aisle the first time round, as they postponed their wedding in September 2003 and officially split in January 2004.
Despite us being disappointed when the news broke, we couldn’t help but wonder what would happen to her incredible pink diamond engagement ring.
Flashing the huge rock in an interview with Diane Sawyer, J-Lo said: “It’s the most magnificent thing I’ve ever seen,” and she’s completely right. The engagement ring is a massive 6.10 carat radiant cut, designed by celebrity jeweller Harry Winston, which reportedly cost Ben Affleck a whopping £855,000 ($1.2 million) at the time.
However, now, as pink diamonds have soared in value, J-Lo’s ring is worth a lot more than it was back then. Our diamond experts estimate it’s worth over double the price now, valuing the ring at £2,000,000 ($2.8million).
After splitting from Ben Affleck, Jen dated pop sensation, Marc Anthony, and yet again we saw another huge rock be unveiled. According to US Weekly, the pair first met way before this in 1998 while backstage at singer Paul Simon’ Broadway show “The Capeman,” which Anthony was starring in.
It’s also rumoured that the two reportedly dated after Jen’s first marriage to actor Ojani Noa ended in 1998.
However, when the pair finally rekindled in 2003, he didn’t let her slip away, asking her to be his wife with a sparkling Harry Winston diamond. In 2011 before finalising their divorce in 2014.
Just when we thought J-Lo’s engagement ring couldn’t get any bigger, Alex Rodriguez proved us wrong.
Confirming their relationship in 2017, their first date took place at Hotel Bel Air, where Alex reportedly went to the bathroom and sent Jen a text saying: ‘You look sexy AF’.
For his romantic beach proposal in March 2019, A-Rod unveiled a very classic emerald-cut diamond with simple but elegant solitaire mounting. The diamond looks to be around 15 carats and is completely colourless with the highest clarity.
Value: £2,600,000 ($3,000,000)
As Jennifer Lopez has just announced her second engagement to Ben Affleck, revealing a post on her website, we were keen to get the first look. The images revealed a show stopping green diamond ring, which is unlike anything we’ve seen before.
