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.

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.
