Five-times engaged and thrice wedded, ‘Jenny from the Block’ has another big rock on her ring finger and it’s gorgeous! Nearly 20 years after their split in 2002, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez recently announced that they’re engaged to be married once again.

On April 8th, J.Lo took to Instagram to show off her jaw-dropping 8.5 carat extremely rare, natural green diamond center stone, set with a white diamond on each side on a platinum band.

This isn’t the first time Lopez has worn a colored diamond engagement ring on her special finger. She sported a 8.5 carat blue diamond engagement ring while with Marc Anthony. Bennifer’s OG engagement ring featured a pink diamond and cost an estimated $2.5 million at the time. Diamond experts say J.Lo’s 2022 uber-rare green diamond engagement ring is estimated to be worth $5-10 million.

Evidently, no expense can be spared when it comes to asking for J.Lo’s hand in marriage. But you don’t have to be a celeb to bling out your ring. This list of Jennifer Lopez-inspired engagement rings and cocktail rings is perfect for the budget-conscious bride-to-be.

 

Green Quartz & Diamond Wrapped Ring

Is Moissanite Tacky? These Elegant Engagement Rings Prove It’s Not!

If you’re researching moissanite gemstones, chances are you’re shopping for an engagement ring and preparing to pop the question. Perhaps you have read that moissanite engagement rings are a cheaper, or tacky alternative to traditional diamond rings.

Moissanite is more flawless than diamonds and is more appealing for buyers who want to save money. Here are a few reasons why we think they’re totally left-hand worthy.

From The Stars

Moissanite was originally founded in meteors. In 1893, Henri Moissan was excavating a crater from a meteor strike in Canyon Diablo, Arizona. At first, he thought the stones were diamonds, but upon closer examination, he discovered they were silicon carbide, a material which was successfully lab-duplicated over 100 years later. Natural moissanite is very rare so today's moissanite is lab-created. 

Daily Wearability

On the Mohs Scale of Hardness, the scale which assesses a gem’s ability to withstand surface scratching, moissanite is a 9.25 so they are suited for everyday wear.

Sparkle & Color

Moissanite radiates a rainbow of colors in its sparkling facets and some consider it more of a disco ball effect. The larger the moissanite gemstone, the more noticeable the color. Some are colorless, and others may cast a yellow or grayish hue in certain lighting.

Versatile Cuts & Jewelry Design

Since the moissanite has many of the same characteristics as a diamond, it can be cut into the same dazzling shapes and set in rings, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings.

Value

Moissanite is less expensive per carat than diamonds.

Now that you have the whole story behind moissanite gemstones, consider these three ultra-sparkling moissanite engagement rings for your one true love.

5 Best Megan Fox Engagement and Wedding Rings Inspirations

Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly sparked a surge of wedding ring replica searches on the web when the couple posted their engagement on Instagram last month. Custom designed by Kelly and London jeweler Stephen Webster, Megan Fox’s engagement ring is a beautiful, pear-shape emerald and diamond toi et moi (you and me) style that’s trending so hot at the moment.

As a couple known for coordinating fashion looks on the red carpet, it’s only fitting that the style is actually two complementary bands of thorns – made in 18 karat white gold sprinkled with colorless pavé diamonds. Rivaling the couple’s magnetic attraction, the two rings nest perfectly together by the use of magnets buried within the gold. Of course, an out-of-this-world  design such as this comes with a price tag to match.

But here are a few options with all the glimmer and shimmer, without breaking the bank.

1. Created Emerald Double Heart Diamond Ring in Sterling Silver

If you love the toi et moi look, but aren’t so into the pear-shape, this design featuring twin heart-shaped created emeralds is a stunning alternative. Plus, the grooved sterling silver band lends the look of a stacked, infinity style ring.

2. Pear Shaped 5/8ctw. Diamond Classic Engagement Ring in 14K White Gold

Custom Promise Ring: A Unique Way To Express Your Love This Valentine’s Day

Any linguist will tell you there are five official Romance languages spoken in the world: French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and Romanian. But anyone in a relationship will tell you there’s a sixth and it’s only “spoken” on February 14th. Valentine’s Day gifting is the unspoken language of relationship status. Chocolates mean “I’m sweet on you”, red roses say “I’m in love with you”, and lingerie says “it’s anything but complicated”. And every left hand’s favorite, the engagement ring declares the all-out devotion. However, there’s one gift that expresses something unique in every relationship.


Promise rings are a custom way to state your devotion, that is specific to your unique connection.

At their core, a promise ring is exactly what it says. It’s a promise from one person to another, but what that promise is can only be defined by you.

We love them because you can wear them on any finger, or even strung on a necklace. Plus, promise rings also don’t come with the same traditional expectations of an elaborate, planned proposal where the proposer gets down on one knee.

A promise ring’s meaning for a girlfriend may be different than her boyfriend’s. They can simply say “we are committed” or could even signify a deeper step in a relationship and mean “let’s get engaged to get engaged”. Here’s how a few promise rings and their possible meanings illustrate how anyone can give or wear a promise ring.

Galentine’s Promise Rings: “I’m So There for You, Always”

Translation: think of a promise ring given between two besties as the iconic friendship bracelet all “glowed up”.
