Jennifer Lopez’s engagement ring

After an 18 year hiatus, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are an item again! The couple announced their engagement last week and we’re stunned by her striking new five stone green diamond engagement ring design. Read about J.Lo’s most iconic jewellery and how you can emulate her style in your own engagement ring.

Nine months after they went public with their rekindled romance, Affleck proposed with a custom engagement ring that’s nothing short of exceptional

By our estimates, Jennifer Lopez’s five stone engagement ring features an 8ct fancy vivid yellowish green diamond. The beautiful yellow-green diamond is flanked by two elongated baguette diamonds, bookended by a matching pair of trapezoid diamonds.

Our appraisal places this unique design well within the seven figure range, with an estiamted price of $3.5 million (£2.7 million).

Green diamonds are exceptionally rare. For context, the Aurora, the world’s largest purely vivid green diamond, is 5.03ct. It sold at auction for $16.8 million.

Fancy coloured diamonds occur naturally all over the world, but green is amongst the rarest of colours. It forms when the diamond is exposed underground to radiation, with yellow tones occuring due to a particular formation of nitrogen atoms in and around the diamonds.

If you love Lopez’s ring design but are looking for a more afforable option, consider swapping the ultra rare green diamond for a green sapphire or emerald. All of the designs below can be customised to feature a different centre stone and, when set with a 1ct emerald of green sapphire, begin at around £4,000 or $5,800.

Throwing it back in 2002, Ben proposed to Jen at his mother’s house in Boston. Covering the house with a quilt of rose petals, Jen was quoted in an interview with Diane Sawyer as describing the event as “So many candles, and vases, bouquets. And my song ‘Glad’ was playing … I walked in and I was just, like, overwhelmed. I wasn’t expecting it, and I was just like, ‘Oh my God.’”

Fast forward to 2004, and Bennifer was not to be. Due to the excessive media attention, the couple decided to call it quits. We hope Ben kept his pink diamond engagement ring, and that it resurfaces soon. In the meantime, let’s take a closer look at the details of the incredible pink diamond ring. Featuring a 6ct radiant cut pink diamond, set upon a platinum band with trapezoid accent diamonds, this engagement ring is worth a cool £2.5 million pounds.

If you love Jlo’s ring but are looking for something slightly more subdued, check out our more affordable version of the pink diamond ring. Featuring an emerald cut pink sapphire with trapezoid accent diamonds, this ring is worth around £3,500. This ring is similar to an engagement ring in our collection, the Reverie. We customised the ring with a pink sapphire, which we can do with every single ring in our collection.

While we wait on Bennifer to announce their engagement once again, we take a look at Jen’s previous bachelors and the fabulous engagement rings she received. Most recently, Jen was engaged to Alex Rodriquez. Featuring an incredible 20ct emerald cut diamond ring set within platinum, we speculate that the stone is of the highest quality, with a colour grade of D colourless and a clarity grade of internally flawless. Based on this assumption, we estimate the value of Lopez’s ring to be around £3.8M ($5M USD).

Known for their subtle elegance, emerald-cuts are the preferred shape among celebrities for large engagement rings. Wearers are drawn to the sleek architectural beauty of the shape, known for its seamless fusion of light and dark planes called the “hall of mirrors”.

Jen’s engagement ring from Alex is very similar in design to our Utopia, an emerald cut diamond engagement ring within our collection. Above, we added a larger diamond to resemble Jen’s incredible diamond. However, we can create this design with any diamond size. Below, you can see what the 1ct version of the Utopia looks like, along with a few others from our collection of a similar style!

Lastly, we take a closer look at Jen’s spectacular blue diamond engagement ring given to her by her second husband, Marc Anthony. Costing around £4.5 million, this extremely rare 8.5ct light blue diamond is as special as Jlo herself. The blue diamond is a sleek radiant cut, set upon a platinum band with trapezoid accent diamonds. Jen and Marc were married for over 10 years, so we think the blue diamond brought them plenty of luck!

While Jlo’s blue diamond is extraordinary, we have a selection of engagement rings that are quite similar in design and feel to the cushion cut sparkler. Take a look at our Utopia engagement ring, set with a 1ct princess cut blue sapphire. Sapphires are a wonderful gemstone, with incredible durability and fire. This blue sapphire engagement ring would cost around £3,000.
