Dear 100 Hour Board,

Hey, I've got diamonds on my mind after hearing more news about Ben and JLo. Just a few questions: How many carats is her ring? How much would such a diamond cost? How are pink diamonds formed, and how much more rare/expensive are they than regular diamonds? And hey, are they really getting marred, of not?? Love the board, by the way... thanks a lot!

- Seeing the dollar signs

A: Dear $Cha-Ching$,
Jennifer's pink diamond is reported to be between 5 and 6.1 carats. (With all these tabloids reporting, you can never be sure.) Ben supposedly spent around $1.2 million. Pink diamonds are extremely rare, thus the sky-high price. Pink diamonds are thought to be caused by a shift or distortion in the crystalline structure. And, according to the latest tabloid, Bennifer's wedding was never called off, just postponed. Whoa. $1.2 million. My Sweet Baboo gypped me.
