Spotted roaming the streets of Portofino, Italy, solo, Jennifer Lopez reminded us that things with Ben Affleck are heating up, simply by wearing a Foundrae neckpiece, a gift from current boyfriend, and former fiancé, Ben Affleck.  

Photographed in a long and loose white sundress, Lopez was looking her casual self, albeit with a twist. Jennifer reminded us that ‘Bennifer 2.0’ is a 2021 highlight we didn’t know we needed. The ‘Jenny from the Block’ singer wore her heart on her sleeves, proudly flaunting a neckpiece with the alphabets that spell out Affleck’s most popular nickname among friends and fans alike.  

Jennifer’s ‘BEN’ white gold necklace is a customized Foundrae statement piece, with the co-founder of Foundrae, Beth Bugdaycay, telling PEOPLE magazine that the white gold neckpiece was personally designed by Affleck. Excited about Jennifer’s third outing wearing the ‘BEN’ neckpiece, Bugdaycay said, "To me, Foundrae is about empowerment and self-expression and Jennifer embodies that." 

Bugdaycay told E! that multiple designs were considered, such as "blossoms [that] are fed with passion and continue to bloom, even in darkness, against adversity ... and [a] thorn is the risk we assume for something we love, for living life fully without reserve." 

Lopez and Affleck have seemingly rekindled an old romance that dates back to 2002. The couple has been seen together in public since April 2021 and it is worth pointing out that their rekindled affections for each other make for major celebrity news, with significant interest in where this relationship leads.  

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were a paparazzi favorite couple from 2002 to 2004, before they split. Engaged from November 2002 to January 2004, the couple even postponed their September 2003 wedding, few days short of the big day. The couple has even featured in a movie and a music video together.  

A Hollywood insider reports that the pair are “madly in love" and have rediscovered each other as “the love of each other’s lives.” Sources close to the pair say, Ben is “very happy” with Jennifer, and the actress and singer is “wonderful for him.” A source reports that the couple “want to do everything they can to make this work." 

Beniffer 2.0 was recently on vacation in the Mediterranean before Ben flew out of Italy for the US.  The ‘BEN’ necklace was first spotted around Jennifer’s neck, three days after the hitmaker’s birthday, while accompanying Affleck on a boat, where the couple was photographed kissing and canoodling. Jennifer wore the same necklace again, while out and about in Monaco.  

Jennifer also posted pictures to her Instagram, wearing the necklace along with a red and gold bikini, under a vibrant kaftan. Referring to their recent vacation together, an insider told PEOPLE, "It's been a dreamy trip for them. They have had a fantastic time. It's been all about relaxing and enjoying a summer break," adding, "Jennifer and Ben are great. The more time they spend together, the more in love they seem."
