A triple-threat. Someone who needs no introduction. A supremely talented actress who can sing and dance, one with hits across the board. Her personal life has been just as big an interest as her career. Jennifer Lopez has five engagements and three marriages, but her most recent engagement might just brag the most stunning ring of them all.

Her Engagement to A-Rod and THE Ring
Lopez met her beau, former baseball player Alex Rodriguez in 2005. Their romance did not begin until 2017, an engagement following just two years later.
Lopez and Rodriguez were holidaying in the Bahamas when he popped the question, and he truly did it in style. With a stunning emerald cut diamond ring with a solitaire band, he dropped to one knee on a white sandy beach to ask for her hand in marriage. According to estimates, the ring is somewhere between 10 and 15 carats, with a value anywhere from one million up to five million dollars. However, the geologists from Rare Carat suggested the diamond is as large as 20 carats. They placed the value at $4.5 million. This is not her first engagement ring, and more to the point, it is not her first emerald cut engagement ring. Although Lopez and A-Rod recently broke up, there is obviously something about this cut she connects to, and it is hardly surprising considering how beautiful emerald cut rings are.

If you don’t want to spend $4.5 million on a Diamond for your engagement ring, have no fear. There are better gemstones that offer better value and quality, like SUPERNOVA or lab grown diamond. The SUPERNOVA Moissanite is unrivalled in terms of lustre and brilliance. What it has is a premium look, without the unsightly blue tint other Moissanite stones have. The cut has been perfected to create genuinely stunning gems with a natural look. There is no disco ball effect; there is no need to worry about double refraction. The new and improved Supernova Moissanite is brighter, whiter and has more sparkle. Lavana lab-grown diamond is a fraction of the cost and just as stunning.
If you want to capture the same look, but you don’t have a million-dollar budget, then consider one of these stunning rings below. They are all emerald cut rings with similar styles and far more affordable.
