Ben Affleck's gifts to Jennifer Lopez: From $2.5M pink diamond to $400K car, actor showered JLo with treasures
One the two of them broke up in January 2004 after postponing their wedding in September 2003, Lopez reportedly returned all the gifts
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were one of the most followed couples that media outlets showed interested in, and one of the things that were reported on was the gifts that the 'Gone Girl' star had given Lopez during the period of their relationship. There were some expensive ones, some thoughtful gestures thrown in, and all of this had made them even more attractive as a couple.
For instance, on the occasion of Lopez's 33rd birthday, Affleck threw an extravagant surprise party and also gifted her a stunning ring which was of diamond and topaz. That was not all, Affleck reportedly kickstarted the festivities in a much grander manner. He did so by gifting her a Phantom Rolls Royce worth more than $400,000.
Affleck and Lopez were engaged and almost walked the aisle, but they broke up before that could happen. However, the ring that Affleck proposed to Lopez with is supposedly impressive. He had popped the question in 2002 and Lopez confirmed the same in an interview with Diane Sawyer as quoted by Harper’s Bazaar. The ring was a 6.1-carat pink diamond from Harry Winston. She said about the ring, "it's the most magnificent thing I've ever seen." The ring is reportedly said to have cost Affleck $2.5 million.
If you are wondering what happened to these gifts and the ring when the two of them broke up in January 2004 after postponing their wedding in September 2003, Lopez reportedly returned all the gifts. It has been a few weeks now since the speculation about Lopez and Affleck reconnecting has surfaced. The two have even spent some quality time vacationing in Montana.
A source was quoted as saying, "spent several days with Ben out of town. They have a strong connection. It's all been quick and intense, but Jennifer is happy." It must be noted that the first time that Lopez and Affleck met, Lopez had been with her husband Cris Judd. It was in 2001 when they shot together for a movie.
In 2010, when the star opened up about her relationship with Affleck, and said, "I love Ben, he's a great guy, but it was a lot for both of us to be under that type of siege for two years straight. We were on the cover of every magazine, every week, it was just a weird thing... our relationship, I think, did suffer because of that. That's not the only reason... but I think it definitely played a part in the dynamic of our relationship."
However, this time around too, the stars' chemistry has captured the attention of the media who seem to be following their every step.
