After two years of dating, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are officially engaged. The singer confirmed that the former New York Yankee had put a ring on it with an internet-breaking ring shot on Instagram Saturday. Lopez captioned the picture of her giant square-cut engagement ring (set against the beautiful backdrop of a romantic sunset) with nothing but a series of red heart emojis, which was fine since the stunning rock speaks for itself.

In honor of the joyous news of J.Lo and A-Rod's highly-anticipated engagement and of the massive rock with which Rodriguez proposed, we're looking back at Lopez's other engagement rings to see how they stack up.

The Alex Rodriguez Engagement Ring:

Let's start with a little run down on J.Lo's latest piece of engagement bling. The ridiculously-large rock has an estimated value of anywhere from $1-5 million.

"I would imagine Jennifer Lopez's engagement ring to have a retail value approaching a million dollars," Andrew Brown, president of WP Diamonds, told E! News. "It looks to be an emerald cut around 10 carats, likely an extremely good stone—VS in color and clarity."

According to Ira Weissman, founder of The Diamond Pro, the ring is probably worth much more, however.

"This approximately 20 carat emerald cut diamond is exquisitely cut and of superb quality," Weissman said. "When you have an extremely rare and timelessly breathtaking stone such as this one, the goal of the ring should be to show off the rock naturally with as little embellishment as possible—the perfect compliment to the ageless enduring beauty of J.Lo. The ring is worth approximately $5 million dollars."
