After two years of dating, Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez got engaged on Saturday (March 9). The retired MLB star popped the question while they were on vacation in Baker’s Bay in Great Guana Cay (fun fact: Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin also got engaged there). Both he and J.Lo announced the news via Instagram, showing off the stunning engagement ring. And it got us thinking, How much did that cost?
E! News asked Andrew Brown, President of WP Diamonds, the same question, and he estimated the rock to be worth seven figures. "I would imagine Jennifer Lopez's engagement ring to have a retail value approaching a million dollars," he said in a statement. "It looks to be an emerald cut around 10 carats, likely an extremely good stone—VS in color and clarity."
Jewelry and style expert Lauren McCawley had a similar prediction. "J. Lo's new emerald cut stunner is what engagement ring dreams are made of," she said. "An approximate 15-carat diamond sparkles in a platinum solitaire setting and could easily retail for $1 Million."
A third expert—Ira Weissman, founder of The Diamond Pro—thinks the ring could be worth more than $1 million. Like, a lot more. "This approximately 20 carat emerald cut diamond is exquisitely cut and of superb quality," he said. "When you have an extremely rare and timelessly breathtaking stone such as this one, the goal of the ring should be to show off the rock naturally with as little embellishment as possible - the perfect compliment to the ageless enduring beauty of J.Lo. The ring is worth approximately $5 million dollars."
