While Rodriguez’s token of love is certainly a stunner, it is not the first engagement ring that has been gifted to the starlet. Here’s a look at the sparklers that have donned Lopez’s ring finger and each gem’s estimated worth, according to Diamond Hedge – a diamond search engine and comparison website.
1. Ojani Noa’s pear-shaped diamond
When Lopez said yes to restauranteur and actor Ojani Noa’s proposal in 1996, she received a pear-shaped diamond engagement ring that was estimated to be valued at $100,000 at the time.
2. Cris Judd’s emerald-shaped diamond
In 2001, choreographer and actor Cris Judd proposed to Lopez with an emerald-shaped diamond ring that’s thought to have been worth six figures, according to Diamond Hedge. A more conservative estimate from Ringspo.com founder Alastair Smith suggests Judd’s ring could be closer to $100,000, according to a report from Us Weekly.

3. Ben Affleck’s pink, radiant-cut diamond
Ben Affleck asked for Lopez’s hand in 2002 with a 6.1-carat pink diamond from famous jeweler Harry Winston, Inc. The rare radiant-cut gem made headlines in celebrity tabloid circles with reports that put its estimated worth between $1.2 and $2.5 million. Experts at Diamond Hedge side with the former estimate, but at least Lopez received a gemstone she reportedly considered her favorite at the time, according to ABC News.
The pair called off their wedding a few days before it was supposed to take place in 2004.
