Jennifer Lopez may be rocking a 16-carat, $1.8 million engagement ring from fiancé Alex Rodriguez these days, but she’s got only fond memories of the famous pink diamond she accepted from ex Ben Affleck back in 2002.
The six-carat rock came up during a chat between the 50-year-old “Hustlers” star and Apple Music host Zane Lowe on Monday, after Lopez mentioned she’s been watching musicals like “Funny Girl” with her children during quarantine — whose star, Barbra Streisand, has a thing for bling.
“I met [Streisand] at an Oscar party, years ago, and I was at the time engaged to Ben Affleck, and — she’s really into diamonds, which I didn’t know,” the “Let’s Get Loud” singer recalled. “He had given me a pink diamond, which got a lot of press and was … whatever. I loved getting it, don’t get me wrong.”
Continued Lopez, “So, she came up to me, and like, she’s heard of it. And she’s like, ‘Can I see your ring?’ And she asked me about the ring, but then she asked me — and I thought it was so strange — about being famous, and how I handle it.”
It’s no wonder Streisand, 77, was eager to get a glimpse of the ring; the rosy, radiant-cut Harry Winston sparkler was worth an estimated $2.5 million and single-handedly started a colored diamond craze.
No word on what Lopez’s EGOT-winning idol thinks of her even larger ring from Rodriguez.
