She showed off the sparkly ring on the red carpet, where she wore a flowing silver gown.

Jen has been married twice before, having tied the knot to fellow actor Brad Pitt, 60, in 2000.

However, they divorced in 2005.

She got married for a second time in 2015 to another actor, Justin Theroux, 52, but they divorced in 2018.

Representatives for the star did not respond to a request for comment.

Speaking in late 2022, she explained: “I’d love a relationship.

“There are moments I want to just crawl up in a ball and say, ‘I need support.’ It would be wonderful to come home and fall into somebody’s arms and say, ‘That was a tough day.’”

But on whether she would remarry, she said at the time: “Never say never, but I don’t have any interest.”

Jen was at Saturday’s SAG Awards in Los Angeles after her series The Morning Show racked up three nominations.

However, she lost out on the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series to The Crown’s Elizabeth Debicki, 33.

Her co-star Billy Crudup wasn’t successful in the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series category, which was won by Pedro Pascal.

1. Online versus in-person shopping

In the world of online shopping, engagement rings have hopped on the bandwagon. 

Even though shopping online may seem like an easy choice, there are things you should consider before buying that way. 

“I think engagement rings are just so personable. I think the in-store experience is so important with online shopping, to be able to touch the ring, to feel the ring, to see how it looks on your finger. You can’t replace that experience,” Anthony Zucco, a sales consultant at Mavilo Wholesalers in Tampa, Florida, told Fox News Digital.

“So booking an appointment, getting in, allowing the female, the male, to actually come in and see it in person without the retouch editing online. I think it’s an essential part

The Lab-Grown Diamond Boom Is Over

  • The lab-grown diamond boom is over, jewelry industry experts say. 
  • Lab-grown gems are mainstream now and real diamonds are back in vogue, analysts told Business Insider.
  • Prices for lab-grown diamonds are likely to tumble amid a glut of supply. 

The man-made diamond boom is over, and prices for ultra-trendy lab-grown diamonds are set to tumble this year, industry veterans say.

Paul Zimnisky, a leading diamond analyst, foresees jewelers scaling back their business in lab-grown diamonds while ramping up their focus on natural diamonds over the next year. In fact, most jewelers aren’t even bothering to stock lab-grown diamonds in inventory, and are only purchasing them on consignment, he told Business Insider. 

It’s the exact opposite of what jewelers have been doing since 2018, when the hype for lab-grown diamonds took off. 

“Some of the fad is starting to fade a bit,” Zimnisky said, pointing to lower-priced retailers like Walmart and Pandora, who have started to “aggressively” push lab-grown stones. “I think it’s become a lot more mainstream.”

Prices for lab-grown diamonds will continue to fall over the next year, he said. Ziminsky didn’t have a price target, but said he believed loose lab-grown diamonds could see nearly the same price decline as they did in 2023, which the jewelry analytics firm Tenoris estimated to be about 20% in the 12 months leading up to November. 

Cormac Kinney, the CEO of the commodities trading firm Diamond Standard, believes the plunge could be even steeper as the hype over lab-grown gems fades. Man-made diamond prices could ultimately drop another 50%-80%, he estimated. 

“Fashion jewelry is always worth a small fraction of real jewelry,” Kinney said. “Only real is rare.”

NHS consultant reunited with diamond ring after leaving it in scrubs

An NHS consultant has been reunited with her diamond ring after taking it off to treat a patient and leaving it in her scrubs.

Radhika Ramasamy lost the diamond ring given to her by her husband after putting it in the pocket of her scrubs before giving a patient a spinal anaesthetic in early December.

The consultant anaesthetist at the West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust handed the scrubs in to be washed after her shift, forgetting the ring was still inside.

Scrubs often transfer hospitals after going through the laundry. In this case, the scrubs bearing Ms Ramasamy’s ring ended up nearly 100 miles away.

Five days later, Suraj Shah, an anaesthetics registrar based at the Royal Free Hospital (RFH) in London, discovered the ring in his newly-laundered green scrubs ahead of his ICU shift.

He said: “As I put the scrubs on something clattered to the floor and a colleague spotted the ring and alerted me. At first I thought maybe one of the nurses here had lost the ring and I put the word out through the nurse in charge.

“I checked with the doctors as well but nothing so I contacted our facilities team.

“I knew how downhearted my wife would be if she’d lost a ring that had sentimental value to her so that was in the back of my mind. As healthcare workers we often take off rings for procedures, so it’s an easy mistake to make.”

The RFH facilities department contacted the laundry team to see whether anyone had reported a missing ring.

Diamond ring that was accidentally thrown away is found by recycling plant employees: ‘Struck gold’

A woman in South Carolina is rejoicing after her diamond ring was recovered from a recycling plant after she accidentally threw it away over the weekend. 

Melanie Harpe of Greenville, South Carolina, was throwing her recyclables into the bin at the city’s Rutherford Road recycling center on Sunday, Jan. 28, when disaster struck. 

Harper’s diamond wedding band fell off and went right into the recycling bin, the city shared in a Facebook post on Tuesday, Jan. 30. 

Sad about what happened but not yet willing to give up hope, Harper emailed the City of Greenville’s Public Works department.

She wrote, “I know the likelihood of finding this is slim to none. But, if the ring is found during the course of processing the recycling, I would be most appreciative if someone could contact me.”

Against all odds – and in a move akin to finding a needle in a haystack – the ring was found, the City of Greenville wrote. 

On Monday, rather than processing all the contents of the recycling bin, workers went on a treasure hunt. 

“Public Works supervisors and litter crew members said, ‘Let’s dump it on the ground and look for it,’” wrote the City of Greenville. 

Public Works employee Travis Golden found the ring “after hours of searching,” the city said.

“They called a very grateful Melanie who came out to [the public works building] to reunite with her ring,” wrote the city.

Travis Hunter Jr. Drops Small Fortune In NIL On Engagement Ring

Travis Hunter Jr. is officially engaged to his longtime girlfriend. He announced the fantastic news in an Instagram post on Sunday!

In doing so, Colorado football’s two-way superstar put his wealth on full display. Hunter put an extremely expensive ring on Leanna’s finger and it looks like he did it while on a luxury beach vacation.

A quick search using Google Lens would indicate that his ring cost anywhere between $4,000 and $50,000 — assuming all of the diamonds are real. There is a good chance that the sticker price falls on the higher end, or go even above. It likely sits somewhere in the middle.

Here are some examples of rings that look relatively similar, and how much they cost:

None of the rings listed above are exact to what Hunter used to propose. They are in the general ballpark. It just goes to say that Name, Image and Likeness money is treating Travis Hunter well.

He really balled out on the engagement ring! It was at least $10,00. At least.

Hunter and his future wife have been together since high school. She moved in with him during their senior year, before he shocked the world by committing to Jackson State over Florida State. She later joined him in Mississippi and moved with him to Boulder.

Leanna has been with Travis through it all. Their love has not wavered through any of the ups and the downs, and it is not slowing down any time soon!

Hunter will turn 21 years old in May. He is set to play his second season on both sides of the ball at Colorado this fall. While he catches passes on offense and swats passes on defense, Leanna will be in the stands as his biggest support with
