Ben initially proposed to the Jenny from the Block hitmaker back in 2002 with a gorgeous six-carat radiant-cut pink diamond. For those who need reminding just how incredible it was, JLo shared a throwback video of the couple on Mother's Day on Sunday – and the show-stopping jewel on her left hand was hard to miss.

"THE TWO SOULMATES 20 YEARS AGO," wrote one, and another added: "BEN AND JEN FOREVER." A third remarked: "The cutest video [I've] ever seen."

Jennifer and Ben split in 2003 before they walked down the aisle, but rekindled their romance in 2021, 19 years after they initially began dating.

Ben gave Jennifer a pink diamond

The Marry Me actress, 52, announced she was engaged to actor Ben for the second time on 8 April, sharing an emotional video in her On the JLo newsletter that showed her sporting an oversized Cult Gaia sweater and a green crop top with a coordinating rock on her left hand.

At the centre was a bright green square-shaped stone, flanked by white trapezoid diamonds on either side. The coloured diamond is reportedly one of the rarest stones out there, so it comes as no surprise that it is estimated to have an eye-watering price tag of $3-10million.

Diamantaire Ilan Portugali of Beverly Hills Diamonds shared more details about the rock, writing: "Congratulations Ben and @jlo on your engagement. It was my honor to be part of this exciting journey, on a quest to source an exceptional natural gem for your spectacular engagement ring.

"Featuring 8.5-carat natural green cushion modified brilliant-cut diamond. Among fancy-color diamonds, natural-color green stones with saturated hues are some of the rarest and most sought after."

The caption continued by stating the green colour symbolises nature and tranquillity and represents health, luck and prosperity.
