Jennifer Lopez Debuts Her Timeless Wedding Band After Marrying Ben Affleck
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 a blissful Instagram photo laying in bed, offering a peek at her new sparkler. It appears J Lo 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 one another the rings we'll wear for the rest of our lives," she wrote in her newsletter of her special day.
The classic wedding band is a departure from her emerald-cut engagement ring, which features a giant 8.5-carat natural green diamond surrounded by two smaller diamonds on each side. It also signifies J Lo's lucky color, as she shared, "I realized there are many moments in my life where amazing things happened when I was wearing green."
Back in 2002, Affleck previously proposed with a pink 6.1-carat diamond ring from Harry Winston — worth $1.2 million with one of the rarest stones in the world. While Lopez wore her new wedding band on its own in her latest Instagram, perhaps she'll stack her engagement ring and wear the pieces together in the future.
For Lopez and Affleck's wedding, which took place in Las Vegas's Little White Wedding Chapel on July 16, the bride stunned in two different gowns. She was married in an off-the-shoulder dress with long lace sleeves and a corset bodice from Zuhair Murad's spring 2023 bridal collection and also wore "a dress from an old movie," a white sleeveless gown she'd saved for years. She completed both looks with neutral almond-shaped nails courtesy of celebrity manicurist Tom Bachik.
