Jennifer Lopez's Massive Engagement Ring From Ben Affleck Has a Special Meaning
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are engaged – for the second time around. The actress/singer announced the news on her OntheJLo newsletter on Friday, April 8, along with an accompanying video of her sparkler. Jennifer Lopez’s engagement ring features an oversize green stone and a silver band, and the colour has a special meaning.
Green is full of significance for the star. In one of her previous newsletters, People reports, Lopez explained why the colour is important to her: “I always say the colour green is my lucky colour. Maybe you can remember a certain green dress,” she wrote, nodding to her Versace gown at the 2000 Grammys that went so viral it inspired the launch of Google Images. “I’ve realised there are many moments in my life where amazing things happened when I was wearing green.”
The multi-hyphenate previously stepped out with the ring to go shopping with her daughter in Culver City, CA, immediately sparking engagement rumours as fans noticed that she was wearing the rock on her left finger.
Affleck first popped the question with a pink engagement ring back in 2002, but the couple called off their wedding due to mounting media pressure. This time around feels different. Last November, she shared that she was open to walking down the aisle again. “I mean, you know me. I’m a romantic, I always have been. I still believe in happily ever after, for sure, 100 percent,” she said.
Coincidentally, J Lo has been wearing a lot of white recently while on red carpets with Affleck. She donned a long-sleeve lace bridal minidress by Giambattista Valli during her “Marry Me” tour in February. For “The Last Duel” premiere at the Venice Film Festival last September, Lopez chose a white embellished satin gown from Georges Hobeika. If those outfits are any indication, her bridal fashion will be a sight to behold.
