Diamonds are a Latina's best friend. It's so exciting every time it's one of our favorite celebrities' turns to get engaged, and our first question is always, "Where's the ring?" Stars like Cardi B and Jennifer Lopez have shown off some stunning engagement rings they received from their significant others--and they've left us all in awe. 

The rapper's giant tear-shaped ring that her ex, Offset, gave her in October 2017 was reportedly valued at half a million dollars! Although their relationship didn't quite pan out the way we all hoped, that ring is something no one will ever forget. J.Lo revealed she has had five people propose to her throughout her life, and she probably has some of the most memorable engagement rings in the world of entertainment. Remember that beautiful pink diamond 6.1-carat Harry Winston ring she got from Ben Affleck? How can anyone forget? It was a beauty!
