Did Jennifer Lopez lose the iconic pink diamond engagement ring?

During the Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez 2000s saga, Affleck presented the actress with a 6.10-carat radiant-cut pink Harry Winston diamond. It later increased the value of pink diamonds dramatically. She told  Diane Sawyer in the early 2000s,

 “I looked at the ring, and I was like, ‘Oh my God,–It was just – it’s the most magnificent thing.’”

Unfortunately, the engagement was pretty short-lived. Recently, when JLo joined Jimmy Kimmel to promote her new movie Shotgun Wedding, she revealed that she did not have it with her anymore.

She did not specify if she lost it or if she returned it to Ben Affleck. Whatever happened to that ring is still a mystery. Ben Affleck thus proposed to the love of his life once again with a similarly colored diamond. The 8.5-carat natural green colored diamond studded engagement ring by Ilan Portugali of Beverly Hills Diamonds was thought to be the perfect candidate to profess his love towards JLo once again.

On On the Floor with Zane Lowe, JLo revealed the message that was engraved in the engagement ring,

“Not. Going. Anywhere.”

Promising her that he will not be going anywhere from her this time around. Green is often connected to good fortune and tranquility and she thinks it’s no coincidence.

 “It has become one of my insights and philosophies…that anything you hold on to too tightly you will break. I love in this picture how the hand is wide open, and the bird is just sitting there… Not. Going. Anywhere. It’s about trust. We have to trust that what is for us, will be for us, no matter what. Trust and love.”

All in all, everything is very special this time around. They both have grown and learned from their previous mistakes and they are here to stay.
