Watch: Jennifer Lopez’s $5 million Rare Diamond Engagement Ring
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have rekindled their romance. The “Dear Ben” singer announced the good news via her OnTheJLo email on April 8th. She made the announcement when she showed off her magnificent green engagement ring. The ring is said to be worth $5 million.
Jennifer, 52, isn’t the first celebrity to wear a colored engagement ring. Ben famously gave her a pink one in 2002, and Marc Anthony proposed to her with a blue one but green is the rarest of them all (and Jennifer’s favorite color).
The Rare Green Diamond
Green diamonds are extremely rare since they must be exposed to uranium in order to achieve their distinctive color: “[The stone] has to be irradiated by beta or gamma waves for long enough to turn the stone green for long enough to turn the stone green. The color is from irradiation and it’s incredibly rare,” Amanda Smith shares her thoughts. She says that this is in addition to the diamond growing in size while still meeting the criteria of being a gem quality diamond with no obvious imperfections.
Jennifer Lopez Green is a Prominent Color.
Jennifer loves the color green and has worn it on numerous occasions. She wore it at the GRAMMYs in 2000 with the jungle print Versace gown. “I’ve always considered green to be my lucky color. Perhaps you recall a certain green frock,” she wrote in her OnTheJLo email a month ago. “I’ve realized there are many moments in my life where amazing things happened when I was wearing green,” she explained. Ben appeared to be paying attentively.
Jennifer’s 4-carats Diamond Ring
The ring is also around 4-carats, according to Jenny Luker, head of Platinum Guild International USA, and is valued at around $5 million. Jennifer’s ring seems to be a natural green diamond of roughly 4-carats set with side white diamonds on a platinum band, according to her statement. “Since the setting is platinum, she can pass along her engagement ring to her children, as platinum maintains its color and shape!” she added, noting once again that green diamonds are “very rare.”
