Jennifer Lopez is a married woman. Shortly after sharing the big news with fans via her “On the JLO” newsletter on July 17, the pop star posted an adorable Instagram photo of herself lying in bed, offering a peek at her new sparkler. Looks like JLo has swapped her stunning green engagement ring from Ben Affleck for a simple wedding band. “So with the best witnesses you could ever imagine, a dress from an old movie and a jacket from Ben’s closet, we read our own vows in the little chapel and gave each other the rings we’ll wear for the rest of our lives,” she wrote in her special day newsletter. wrote
The classic wedding band is a departure from her emerald-cut engagement ring, featuring a massive 8.5-carat natural green diamond flanked by two smaller diamonds on each side. It also refers to J. Lo’s lucky color, as she shared, “I realized that there are so many moments in my life where amazing things happened when I was wearing green.”
In 2002, Affleck previously proposed to Harry Winston with a pink 6.1-carat diamond ring — valued at $1.2 million and one of the rarest stones in the world. Although Lopez wore her own new wedding band in her latest Instagram, it’s likely she’ll stack her engagement ring and wear the piece together in the future.
For Lopez and Affleck’s wedding, which took place on July 16 at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, the bride stunned in two different gowns. She was married in an off-the-shoulder dress from Zuhair Murad’s spring 2023 bridal collection with long lace sleeves and a shoulder strap, and “a dress from an old movie,” a white sleeveless gown she had saved for years.
