Backup dancer Casper Smart gave sweetheart Jennifer Lopez a ring for her birthday, but the recently divorced mom of two denies engagement rumors.
Casper Smart, 26, has been dating Lopez, 44, for a while now — but until her birthday Wednesday, never had gifted the bling-loving diva any jewelry.
People magazine spoke with Platt Boutique owner Larry Platt about the decision Smart made to buy estate jewels for his girlfriend, saying:
“[Casper] told me he had bought her jewelry before, but never vintage so he wanted to go in a different direction, something one-of-a-kind.”
The shop owner continues, saying Smart was in tune with Lopez’s likes and dislikes:
“He has a very good eye and knew what he wanted… He was looking for vintage pieces that had a chic, modern feel to them. He told me that there are only two pieces of jewelry that Jennifer wears on a daily basis, so he wanted to pick pieces that he felt she would wear all the time and could go with everything.”
“He appreciated the fact that pieces were beautifully made, from a different era and were completely unique.”
Casper Smart also tweeted out a sappy message to his much older girlfriend, saying:
“HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my very very beautiful bear the nicest, sweetest, funniest, sexiest bear there is! Love u.”
But while Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart have been dating for a long time, and he gave her a diamond ring for her birthday, Entertainmentwise reports that the star’s flak deny any engagement rumors at the time regarding the freshly unmarried American Idol star.
