Andrew Fox, president of SuperJewler.com, told ELLE.com that the emerald-cut ring is “one helluva huge diamond.” He guessed that it “is an emerald cut of between 11 carats and 15 carats.” Ira Weissman of Diamond Pro said that the ring could be worth up to $5 million. In any case, several jewelers agreed, it starts at at least $1 million.
Ring experts from JamesAllen.com told ELLE.com that the ring’s history only adds to its value:
“Emerald cut diamonds became popular back in the 1920s, a time when clean lines and art deco styles were in fashion. However, we’ve seen a returned interest in this shape, with celebrities such as Amal Clooney and Beyoncé sporting the stone.”
J-Lo is used to extravagant rings like this one. In 2002, Ben Affleck gave her a 6.1-carat pink Harry Winston diamond that was worth $2.5 million and was the talk of Hollywood engagement rings for some time.
Over the years Lopez has racked up five engagement rings. Here’s how they all compare. click here
Lopez later posted the same photo of the rock with eight heart emojis.
