After hearing about Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s engagement, the first thing that comes to mind is her engagement rings. JLo has owned several stunningly beautiful engagement rings throughout the years, for those playing at home. The artist has been proposed to six times by five partners.
Jen’s most recent ring is thought to be an extremely rare green diamond with personal importance for the singer (more on that later), but her prior rings have all been pieces of art in their own right.
Here you can see all of Lopez’s engagement rings, including those from Ojani Noa, Chris Judd, Ben Affleck, Marc Anthony, and Alex Rodriguez.
First on the List is Noa Ojani
The first is an excellent marquise-cut diamond ring from Ojani Noa, which was given to JLo when they married in 1997. The first is an excellent marquise-cut diamond ring from Ojani Noa, which was given to JLo when they married in 1997. The delicate design, which is said to be worth “six figures” or $100,000 USD, was only on the singer’s hand for a short time until the couple separated up in 1998.
Second on the list is Cris Judd
Cris Judd, Jen’s longtime backup dancer, proposed in 2001 with a pavé-set emerald-cut white diamond engagement ring. The couple married in 2002 after meeting on the shooting of her music video for “Love Don’t Cost A Thing.”
Third is Ben Affleck
Ben Affleck, it’s you. Ben proposed with a (now legendary) 6.10 carat pink diamond made by Harry Winston in 2002, when the iconic 2000s couple met on the set of Gigli. The colourful stone, which was flanked by two white baguette stones and set in a platinum band, popularised tinted diamonds.
Over $1 million is the expected cost. In 2004, the pair called it quits, and JLo allegedly returned the ring to Ben.
Fourth engagement was with Marc Anthony
Speaking of Harry Winston, JLo’s next ring, designed by Marc Anthony, was reported to be worth $4 million and included an 8.5 carat blue diamond with two baguette diamonds on either side. Jen and Marc tied the knot in 2004 and welcomed twins Max and Emme into the world in 2008. In 2011, the couple announced their separation, and their divorce was finalised in 2015.
Alex Rodriguez is 5th on the List
Here’s an Instagram that I recall. After four years of dating, Alex Rodriguez (AKA A-Rod) proposed to Jen during a trip to the Bahamas in 2019. The ring in question featured a large emerald-cut white diamond estimated to be worth between $1-5 million and weighing between 10-15 carats. JLo and A-Rod later divorced in early 2021.
Sixth on the List is Ben Affleck
Last but not least, there’s her present engagement ring, which is Ben Affleck’s second coloured design. According to Bloomberg, the item is said to contain a “exceptionally rare” 8.5 carat cushion cut green diamond with a white diamond on either side, valued at between $5 and $7 million. The stone’s peculiar colour has personal importance for JLo, in addition to its stunning appearance.
