It was the engagement Instagram that caused us to stop dead in our collective tracks. Alex Rodriguez announced his engagement to pop icon Jennifer Lopez with a picture of a stunning emerald cut diamond, estimated to be between 10 and 15 carats and worth in the range of $1 to $5 million, on her left hand with a simple caption "she said yes."

While the sparkler is indeed stunning, it is not the first staggeringly beautiful diamond that J.Lo has received. The singer, actress, and all-around superstar has been engaged five times (she married only three of her fiancés), and has amassed quite the collection of striking rings, all of them square or emerald cuts.

Between her penchant for stunning jewels and her multiple engagements and husbands, we would be remiss not to draw comparisons to another marrying type: Elizabeth Taylor. The late actress was married eight times (twice to Richard Burton) and perhaps the only thing more famous than her many matrimonial tangos were her exquisite jewels. Which begs the question: is Jennifer Lopez the 21st century's Elizabeth Taylor?
