9 Valentine’s Day Engagement Rings 

So you’ve got the romantic atmosphere, have found the love of your life, and mapped out the perfect proposal for Valentine’s Day, now you need the ring! If you are planning to pop the question, stay tuned for everything you need to know for that perfect engagement ring!

9 Valentine’s Day Engagement Rings 

It’s here! The most romantic day of the year has finally arrived! This day that is all about love and affection is an incredibly popular time to propose. And it is no wonder, the pitter-patter of snowfall, snuggling in front of the fireplace, the afterglow of the holiday season, Valentine’s Day is not called the day of romance for nothing!

What exactly IS Valentine’s Day?

History tells us that Valentine’s Day’s romantic origins date back to Ancient Roman times, when Saint Valentine defied then-Emperor Claudius II. The Emperor had banned marriages for young men, believing they made better soldiers than husbands and fathers.

Saint Valentine felt so strongly that this decree was unfair, that he continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. Eventually, the Saint was caught and executed, but this day of love which some say commemorates Saint Valentine’s burial, is associated with the love he died to protect.

Valentine’s Day has since moved on from secret marriages. This day of love is often used to commemorate various milestones in a relationship……or to start one! Who doesn’t remember sticking a paper lunch bag to your desk, handing out cards and candies to your classmates. Then check your bag to see if your crush gave you one and if they wrote a special message!

The thrill of someone coming up to you in the hallway, giving you a Valentine from your crush, because they were too shy to do it themselves! Then save the card and read it over and over to your friends, talking about how cute your crush is!

Or your first Valentine’s Day with your first significant other. Buying all the traditional gifts, teddy bears, candy, flowers, ahhhhhhh young love! And now here you are, ready to pop THE big question.

Maybe you are planning a big public proposal using the jumbotron at a basketball game, or you’ll attach a ring to your dog’s collar, or perhaps you’ll go more intimate, a quiet candlelight dinner, either way, you will need the perfect engagement ring….and then wedding ring!

You have the perfect day, the perfect love, the perfect proposal, make sure you have the perfect sparkles. From asking someone out for the first time “Will you be my valentine?” to proposing to your long-time love, this is truly a day of romance.

Holy Ring Choices!

Engagement rings have come a long way, from traditional diamond solitaire engagement rings, to engagement rings (& wedding rings) that utilize gemstones and diamonds together; the classic yellow gold band, to white and rose gold options, the ring you choose can be as unique as your love.

Engagement rings and wedding rings are symbols of your love and commitment, of your togetherness, your past, your present, and of course, your future together. This, for example, is often symbolized by a three-stone engagement ring.

You can design your ring to reflect not just your love’s style, but the romance of the day. If you want to design your own ring, we are here to help!

You can learn how to design an engagement ring, customize an engagement ring, or if it’s right for you and your partner, you can design the ring together.

But maybe you’ve used all your energies on planning the perfect proposal, then never fear! We have lots of gorgeous options for perfect engagement rings that are impossible not to love. See below for just a few of our favorite options.

Valentine’s Day Engagement Rings

Jennifer Lopez’s Engagement Ring: The Ultimate Guide

Jennifer Lopez’s Engagement Ring and Arod

It’s no secret Jennifer Lopez has seen her fair share of over-the-top engagement rings, and every one of them has been drool-worthy. One, in particular, has been the envy of many. J.Lo’s most recent engagement ring, courtesy of now-ex, Alex Rodriguez, became Insta famous on March 9, 2019, when the couple announced their engagement. 

The couple first began dating back in 2017 and gave us all the feels with their picture-perfect relationship. A-Rod popped the question during their vacation in the Bahamas with a classic sunset beach proposal. And to top it off, we got to see that beauty up close with a fantastic ring shot shared by them both online. 

Here’s all we know about J.Lo’s gorgeous diamond sparkler and where you can find a ring just like it at

We’ll share: 

  1. What style J.Lo’s engagement ring is
  2. The diamond shape
  3. The diamonds carat size
  4. How much the engagement ring is worth 
  5. Where you can find the lookalike  

Jennifer Lopez’s Engagement Ring Pictures 

The two shared this shot of them holding hands as they both show off J.Lo’s engagement ring, which is glowing as bright as the bonfire behind it. The second image is taken from a distance and manages to capture the dazzling diamond rock from afar.

What Style Setting is JLO’s Engagement Ring?

J.Lo’s sparkler is a three-stone setting featuring an emerald-cut diamond. The band is either white gold or platinum.

14K White Gold Tapered Baguette Three Stone Diamond Engagement Ring

Three-stone engagement rings are a sure way to make sure the center stone pops and shines with an intense sparkle. The two side stones not only sit flush against the center stone but truly bring out its magnificence and size.

For this particular engagement ring, A-Rod chose a three-stone setting. Three-stone rings feature two side stones that accentuate the size and brilliance of the center stone.

What Diamond Shape is JLO’s Engagement Ring?

The center stone on J.Lo’s engagement ring is an emerald-cut diamond. 

Like other fancy shapes, emerald cuts are excellent at consuming much of the rough diamond’s carat weight. They’re cheaper than round-brilliant cut diamonds but require less manufacturing to be cut. That means they waste less raw material. 

Emerald Cut Diamond - Viewable In 360° HD

The emerald cut has been worn, first by royalty, since the 1500s. It evolved from the table-cut and has become a preferred cut as it reduces the pressure during the cutting process, and as a result, prevents unwanted chips in the diamond.  

A popular choice among celebrities, the emerald cut offers a powerful combination of understated light return and intense clarity.

This elongated shape is cut in such a way that it has a large surface area, making the wearer’s hand look elegant and slimmer, while the diamond beams from every angle. 

How Many Carats is Jennifer Lopez’s Engagement Ring?

It’s clear Alex wanted his woman to have nothing but the best, and he accomplished this by getting her a massive 15-carat emerald-cut showstopper. 

This diamond appears to be colorless and possibly to be collection grade quality, which is the highest diamond quality available. 

How Much Did J.Lo’s Ring Cost? And What’s It Really Worth?! 

While love doesn’t cost a thing in her books, J.Lo’s engagement ring certainly broke the bank. Experts estimate the diamond sparkler to have cost between $1 million to $3 million. 

Looking at an emerald-cut with excellent specifications (D Color, IF Clarity) at James Allen the estimate seems accurate. 

Jennifer Lopez Engagement Ring Lookalikes

This ring isn’t a complicated one to replicate, given its modest sophistication. Here are two budget-friendly, yet stunning lookalikes, that will have you looking and feeling like a star. 

First, we have an almost identical match with James Allen’s tapered baguette three-stone diamond engagement ring. You can find it here

The Second is another three-stone emerald cut center but with an added flair of two more fancy-shaped diamonds. If you’re looking for something similar but not identical, then this three-stone pear-shaped J.Lo engagement ring lookalike could be the one! 

We’re Here To Help

Buying an engagement ring comes with stress, questions, and a lot of second-guessing. At James Allen, we’re here to offer you 100% free advice and will assist you in understanding the best diamond quality for your budget and unique preferences.
