Jennifer Lopez & Ben Affleck popped into a jewelry shop when they went to Capri

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck look head over heels in love during vacation in Capri, Italy

So, here’s the timeline: July 22 or 23rd, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck fly out of LA and head to Nice/Monaco, where they immediately board the massive yacht they rented. They stayed in the South of France for several days, partying in Monte Carlo and St. Tropez, before sailing off to the Italian coast where they day-tripped in Capri. By last Friday, the birthday trip was over, at least for Ben. He flew out of Italy and went back to France, where Jennifer Garner had apparently dropped off Violet. Jennifer stayed behind in Portofino over the weekend with her friends and her glam squad, and she looked like she was shooting the sequel to Under the Tuscan Sun (photos at the end of the post). It’s the Capri part of the trip that people are talking about at the moment. Apparently, not only did Ben purchase a customized Foundrae necklace for Jen’s birthday. He also took Jennifer to a jewelry store in Capri, where they looked at some different pieces:

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez popped into a jewelry store during their romantic European getaway — trying on some serious pieces — but there’s no ring in play, yet. The shopping trip went down last week at Faraone Mennella jewelry store in Capri, and a store spokesperson tells us J Lo tried on a number of expensive pieces, including necklaces and earrings.

We’re told J Lo tried on a $41,000 green tourmaline necklace … plus a series of colored hoop earrings ranging from $1,800 to $2,850.

One thing we’re told the couple did NOT check out, however, was a ring.

The spokesperson tells us Ben and J Lo took a series of photos together inside the jewelry store, where they were flirty and having fun, and J Lo also took a few selfies with the jewelry she tried on before leaving with their entourage. The couple didn’t officially purchase anything, but the rep says most celebs call in later to have items shipped back home.

The fact that Ben is the kind of guy who loves to buy jewelry for his ladies is definitely a plus in my book. Sure, he’s an addict who sabotages himself and his relationships. But he’s not cheap and he’s actually quite romantic with the jewelry-buying. Their relationship does have a Taylor-Burton vibe, don’t @ me. Richard Burton loved to buy Elizabeth Taylor special jewelry pieces all the time. Not just massive Krupp diamond rings and the Taylor-Burton-Cartier diamond either – he bought her smaller pieces up at auction, or little diamond rings for winning at ping-pong. Jennifer clearly kept all of his gifts from the before-time. I really need him to surprise her with that green tourmaline necklace. She can wear it to the Met Gala.

Also: J.Lo was photographed wearing a Batman t-shirt. I LOVE IT!! She’s with the Batfleck!

Here’s J.Lo in Portofino, wearing her B-E-N necklace.

Love sick?? Jennifer Lopez can't put her phone away after Ben Affleck heads back to the U.S during her Italian vacay!

    That dress is amazingly perfect for Capri. Love it!

  2. minx says:

    Loving all this.

  3. Julia K says:

    Very cute daytime vacation dress, fresh off the yacht look.

  4. Darla says:

    Not Jlo in a Batman tshirt! omg, no wonder there is new talk about WB doing more Batfleck. I would love it since I loved his Batman, and he got such a bad rap on account of all of the drama with Whedon and Snyder and the ridiculous writing.

    • FF says:

      Ngl, I still want that Batfleck vs Deathstroke movie (and I’m pretty much a Marvel-ite). I feel cheated.

  5. Myjobistoprincess says:

    I’m not into that weird dress but the jewelry sets in Capri is just out of this world beautiful. I hope we’ll get to see what she got, if she got anything from there.

    • minx says:

      I agree with Kaiser, I like that he springs for nice jewelry.

    • Astrid says:


    • Seraphina says:

      I agree about the dress but I think it’s do to us seeing it in a pic. For where she is, in person, I bet it looks good and appropriate.
      And I LOVE that he spring for bling bling and I love how Kaiser expressed it.

    I’m at the “eat the rich” point in my life, apparently, because all I see is conspicuous consumption by two multimillionaires while millions of regular people are suffering through a pandemic and the collapse of democracy in the US. Show me their tax returns, and then maybe I’ll feel like they deserve their yacht vacation, hugely expensive jewelry, and ridiculous performative posing for the paps.

      Right there with you.

      Also, I’ve been around plenty of guys in my career like Ben. Trying on fancy jewelry on dates bc they like feeling like high rollers, not bc they want to shower their dates with gifts. I doubt that Ben has paid for any of the jewelry he’s given to Jennifer bc all they have to do is leak where it came from and a million thirsty women will snap the company’s offerings to be like JLo. This is like a higher end version of Pippa Middleton’s honeymoon.

  7. Klu says:

    I don’t know about the rest of y’all but the idea of getting back with an ex like this would be sad to me. What is Jennifer thinking? What’s Ben thinking? There were lots of rumors about their toxicity before and I don’t believe time has made any difference.

    Like if I were Angelina Jolie and I had a nice ex like Johnny Lee Miller, I’d be here for it but super cautious.

  8. Karisma says:

    I totally agree with kaiser about bennifer giving the Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton vibes. But not as messy I hope for them lol jlo did leave a marriage and a engagement twice to be with him.
    It’s cute how in love she is, she’s acting like a teenager the Ben necklace, the batman t-shirt. Let’s appreciate bennifer for everything they gave us this summer

    • Nicole says:

      Ha! And I was about to comment in the opposite tone “ugh, she’s acting like a teenager.”

      • Summergirl says:

        I’m with you, Nicole! I find it so incredibly childish for a woman in her fifties to wear a necklace with her boyfriend’s name on it. And now with the Batman shirt. At first I found this reunion fun but now I feel exhausted by them (though I’m still reading and commenting LOL).

  9. Miatagal says:

    Jennifer looks incredibly happy. Good for her. However, she is horribly overexposed these days. Always posing while Ben lounges around. She needs to retreat into privacy for a while.

    • Theo says:

      She is flying so high, hopefully she won’t fall down from her stars.

    • Samantha says:


      I 100% agree with you. I am for them being together; however, the overexposure on her part is just too much. I hope she can sit down and think about how and why it ended the first time around. If I were her, I would baby this relationship and nurture it. But the thing with her is she LOVES attention and that right there is a problem. I wish them both well.

  10. Haylie says:

    This… feels like it’s going to end the same way it did last time.

    • KissMyA**23 says:

      There’s only 2 ways it could end in my opinion… Either her and Ben split amicably, quietly weeks before announcing. OR It’ll be worse than the 1st time. I’m hoping for amicable personally, but I’m probably wrong.

    • Carolnr says:

      Totally agree!!!

  11. Eleonor says:

    I was hoping for this!
    I love some jewel pr0n.

  12. stooppoo says:


    These people are boring and gross like stale McDonald’s.

  13. april says:

    I was happy at first for them, now I’m just bored with seeing them all of the time. I’ve lowered my expectations of them staying together. At this point it’s all about vanity with these two.

  14. Elaine Stritch says:

    Being an addict isn’t a bad thing. The bad things addicts do when they’re addicted and not getting help is the problem. Many people who identify as addicts are getting help, living Good lives, make great partners. Let’s not list “addict” as a reason someone is less worthy.
