Jennifer Lopez's New Friend: A $2.1 Million Ring
Jenny from the block made yet another fashion statement this week on Wednesday’s episode of American Idol, where she distracted us all with a new sparkler.
The star was showing off a yellow-diamond ring from Cora Jewelers, and it wasn’t cheap.
According to People.com, the 50.40 carat gem, accented in 18-karat yellow gold with ebony wood, comes with a price tag of $2.1 million.
But lucky for the rest of the world, you don’t have to be a celeb to score this gem (although clearly you do have to be loaded)—it will soon be available for purchase on the jeweler’s site.
Tell us: What do you think of Jennifer Lopez’s new bling?

I don't understand the "poor me" mentality of some of these posts. What makes everyone think someone needs to help them out? I work three jobs and do what I need to in order to make it work. There is a multi-millionaire right down the street. I don't sit and feel sorry for myself and think he should be helping me, and I don't whine about what I would like to have but don't have the money to get.
I think to myself sometimes, wow, wish I had the lucky break, or the education he has to get me where he is - but I don't think he owes me anything and I am not upset that he is not helping me.
Jennifer is a star, she has worked years to get where she is, she didn't ride in on her family's money or have her daddy pave the way for her. She worked. She's beautiful so heck no that doesn't hurt any....
If she wants to buy something outlandish and unecessary with her money... good for her... I always said that if I hit the lottery I would always have my nails done, get pedicures and have fresh flowers all the time.... necessary??? No....
And... Jennifer does alot of charitable work - she just doesn't need accolades for it. Most people who genuinely give out of the goodness of their heart don't need to be reconized for it.
Giving (helping others) is a choice - it's not a requirement.
When did we make the leap to feel so entitled?
Think about the people YOU could be helping when you are buying lottery tickets, cigarettes, alcohol, shopping on QVC, and the next time you feel the urge to be critical of someone who has it all.... go out and do something charitable to offset that bad feeling.
beauty tips and style advice
From Monica, Rachel, and Phoebe on Friends to Blair and Serena on Gossip Girl, here are the most memorable wedding dresses to grace the small screen.
Kate Middleton likes outlet malls too.
Smart fall shopping can’t be boiled down to some set-in-stone lineup of items. It’s much more about how you play with what you’ve got rather than just racking up a bunch of new stuff; sometimes your bank account’s balance simply won’t allow for a full-on wardrobe refresh. That’s when it’s important to know what’s worth it—and what isn’t.
Autumn’s just a few short months away, and we’ve got sweaters, coats and booties on our minds! Below are the first things we’ll be buying (or have already bought!) to kick off next season.
Beauty editors are routinely asked to name three essentials they couldn’t live without on a desert island. So here’s our list: water, matches, protein bars. As much as we depend on beauty products, they’re not exactly essential to survival. These luxurious fragrances, nail polishes, and tools are no exception. They’re the anti-basics—hardly your medicine-cabinet staples. They won’t shrink pores or obliterate frizz, but they will make you weak with desire. And that’s a refreshing change of pace. Beyond just looking and feeling great, each of these cool new things appeals to our sense of style. How’s that for an SOS?
You could breeze through the rest of summer with the same sheer balm and nude gloss you always wear. Or you could throw caution to the wind and try one of these superfun, superbright lipstick shades we saw on the spring runways. True red, orchid purple, neon orange—these lipsticks are as bold as they are beautiful.
To say Cara Delevingne is trending is an understatement: Her brows are a hot Google search term, she has around 2.8 million (and growing) Instagram followers, and it’s a challenge to find a Pinterest board without her on it. She’s the girl everyone wants to look like (and be BFF with, too). Check out her best beauty moments—and pin away.
Like red lipstick, cat eyes owe their timeless appeal to their spectacular, style-defining range that can, depending on application, telegraph Old Hollywood glamour, graphic minimalism, or counter-culture punk—what else do Siouxsie Sioux and Brigitte Bardot have in common? It’s impossible to think of Marilyn Monroe without those heavy-lidded bedroom eyes or Amy Winehouse sans her subversive, exaggerated swipe. A mere sweep of eye pencil transformed Anna Karina from a fresh-faced teenager into a French New Wave style icon, and Sophia Loren’s wide-eyed gaze has been forever etched into our collective memory with a frame of perfectly delineated black powder liner. Today, Alexa Chung gives the look a modern ease with a signature liquid swoosh that feels right whether she’s heading to brunch, the airport, or the red carpet. Here’s a look at the best feline eyes of all time. We feel certain that Choupette would approve.
Have you ever noticed that denim ads are some of the sexiest? And most memorable? We can’t tell you how many of the people featured on our site, jeanstories.com, swoon as they reminisce about the first time they watched the 1985 Levis’s 501s “Laundrette” TV spot featuring hte handsome Nick Kamen—who ended up , ahem, sans jeans. As for print ads, think Guess, Calvin Klein…not only sexy, but envelope-pushing and groundbreaking. If concerned mothers of America are writing angry letters to their local newspapers about the boob-baring faces of your campaign, you, as a jeans brand, know you’ve done something right.
Although summer is winding down and days spent by the beach are numbered, there is one gift of the dog days that we can take with us through fall: the pearl. Whether it is dotting denim or lining sandals, the lustrous rarity has become the embellishment of the season and is no longer confined to your grandmother’s jewelry box. For this week’s Most Wanted, we explore how to make your sartorial world your oyster with the ocean gem, along with some of our favorite “pearls of wisdom” to guide you.
These buns are haute! Pretty twists spotted on this year’s runway put a couture spin on the go-to bun.
