Affleck's wedding ring trade
09:30 03 May 2005
Ben Affleck has reportedly traded in ex-lover Jennifer Lopez's engagement ring to buy a band for his new bride-to-be Jennifer Garner.
The actor was told by exclusive jewellers Harry Winston that they would not refund the £600,000 he paid for Lopez's ring but could use the credit later.
A source is quoted by America's Boston Herald newspaper as saying: "Ben wanted the cash, but they weren't going to give him his money back.
"He was told that if he wanted to get married again - or he needed a piece of jewellery - the credit would be there waiting for him."
However, Garner's engagement ring is reportedly much cheaper than her predecessor's, costing £260,000.
The source added: "Because it was less expensive, they told him he could use the remaining credit some time in the future."
The 'Good Will Hunting' star proposed to the sexy actress earlier this month when he presented her with the ring on her 33rd Birthday party.
