Stars Whose Rings Got Bigger With Each Engagement

Jennifer Lopez & Ben Affleck
Ben Affleck proposed to Lopez in 2002, and he did so with a pink Harry Winston diamond ring. The 6 carat ring was worth $2.5 million and set off a trend toward colored diamonds. “It was a very rare and very precious colored diamond that most people were unaware of at the time,” a jewelry insider stated. It's safe to say that Bennifer definitely went away from the norm of traditional white diamonds with their choice of a pink rock. “The vast majority of the diamonds in the world are ‘white’ in color, meaning they are colorless. It is hard to overstate just how special a fine quality, natural fancy color diamond really is. For some context, there are more Picasso paintings in the world than there are truly exceptional natural pink and blue diamonds over one carat in size. Certainly Jennifer Lopez’s pink diamond engagement ring from Ben Affleck tends to get credit, deservedly, for sparking interest in colored diamonds. But at the high-end of the market, these rare and unique colored diamonds have been recognized as a truly collectible item, and buyers from all over the world have been buying them as they come to market," Greg Kwiat, CEO of Kwiat Diamonds and Fred Leighton told Town and Country.
