All Of Jennifer Lopez's Engagement Rings Hit On The Same Major Jewelry Trend
Jennifer Lopez has worn some pretty amazing jewelry in her lifetime — just take a quick glance at her getups when she's at any major gathering. Her red-carpet style, for example, is always defined by dazzling ensembles (see: her crystal-embellished CFDA Awards dress), and extra-sparkly jewels to boot, like massive cocktail rings that cost an arm and a leg, glittery necklaces that twinkle with each flashing camera light, and diamond earrings that are, in a word, spectacular. But, regardless of said jewelry variety, it seems there is one particular piece she has quite a penchant for: emerald-shaped baubles — and the proof lies in all of Lopez's engagement rings.
Lopez's engagement ring from fiancé Alex Rodriguez — which made its debut on Instagram — caused quite the frenzy. Not only was it incredibly stunning, but according to Kathryn Money, vice president of strategy and merchandising at Brilliant Earth, it also came attached with a jaw-dropping price tag — it's estimated to cost well over $1 million.
Dazzle and value aside, though, the singer's bauble also hit on one major jewelry trend: non-round gemstones, which actually seem to be J. Lo's favorite diamond shape of all, seeing as all five of her engagement rings have either been a cushion or emerald cut.
So, The Zoe Report decided to do a deep dive into Lopez's engagement ring archives to unearth three of the five dazzling styles that prove her fondness for emerald-cut dazzlers. Prepare yourselves: Every single one of her baubles has been, in a word, enchanting. See the rings, from the earliest to her most recent from A-Rod, plus shop similar styles, below.
Ben Affleck proposed to Lopez with a 6.10-carat pink radiant-cut diamond from Harry Winston. Aside from boasting insane sparkle, Lopez's ring from Affleck also sparked a new trend that was all about colored diamonds (which, to this day, remains a favorite among unconventional brides).

Shortly after ending her engagement to Ben Affleck, Lopez began dating singer Marc Anthony. In 2003, Anthony popped the question with an 8.5-carat blue cushion-cut diamond from Harry Winston that was estimated to cost nearly $4 million — yes, really.

This is the $1 million-dollar sparkler that's currently perched on Lopez's finger. According to Money, "J. Lo’s stunning engagement ring from A-Rod appears to feature a 12 to 15 carat emerald-cut diamond in a classic solitaire white gold or platinum setting." She adds, "The elegant simplicity of the ring’s design allows the gorgeous, show-stopping center diamond to be the focal point."
