Over the weekend, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez announced their engagement. The couple, who have been together for more than two years, shared the happy news on Instagram, via two coordinated posts of a ginormous diamond engagement ring. “She said yes,” Rodriguez captioned the announcement photo of Lopez wearing her shiny new emerald-cut stone.
Not only is the rock stunning, but it’s massive. (Though, to be honest, we didn’t expect anything less with these two.) Lopez’s diamond is an emerald cut—the same stone shape seen on the engagement rings of celebrities like Amal Clooney, Beyoncé, and Anne Hathaway. The Art Deco style has been cropping up again in recent years, both among the A-list crowd and regular-old shoppers.
A.Rod popped the question during a couple’s getaway in the Bahamas, shortly after the pair celebrated their two-year anniversary.
According to Page Six, Rodriguez apparently spent seven months looking for the right ring. “He knew for a long time that he wanted to propose to Jennifer,” a source said. “He wanted to get it right. The proposal has been a long time coming, Alex knew she was the one and has been painstakingly planning everything.” He reportedly sourced the stone outside the U.S.
Neither A.Rod nor J.Lo have revealed the jeweler who created the ring. Speculation as to its value and its weight has been non-stop since Saturday night, with some experts estimating it could be worth anywhere between $1 million to upwards of $5 million.
Speaking to another anonymous source, People reports that the proposal was “very much a surprise to Jennifer,” which was “just how Alex wanted it.”
“Jennifer is ecstatic and so are their families and friends,” the source said. You know who else was “ecstatic”? Most of Twitter.
Even A.Rod got in on the fun.
Congrats again to the lovebirds!
