What does a guy get the girl who has everything for her 44th birthday? If that girl is Jennifer Lopez (who celebrated July 24) the answer is: Jewelry, of course!

But not just any jewelry; Casper Smart knows better than that. Instead, he sought out one-of-a-kind vintage pieces from the Platt Boutique in L.A., selecting a ’70s yellow gold and diamond chain link bracelet and a ’40s gold and diamond ring, both with a coordinating buckle motif.

After being pointed to Platt Boutique by Lopez’s longtime stylists, Mariel and Rob, Smart was on a mission. “He told me he had bought her jewelry before, but never vintage,” owner Larry Platt tells PEOPLE, “so he wanted to go in a different direction, something one-of-a-kind.”

Smart clearly knew his love’s taste in baubles right off the bat. “He has a very good eye and knew what he wanted,” Platt says. “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.”

And he apparently nailed it: Lopez appeared to be wearing the bracelet out on a walk with Smart a few days ago. And Smart’s good taste is to credit, Platt says: “He appreciated the fact that pieces were beautifully made, from a different era and were completely unique.”

Tell us: What do you think of Smart’s picks for Lopez? Has your significant other ever surprised you with jewelry?

Many of you beat me to it, I was going to say the same thing, SHE PAID FOR IT!

So lovely that JLO gave Caspar money – and he didn’t come back with a bubblegum ring.

It’s good to be Caspar. JLO gives him money just for sleeping with her. Good gig if you can get it.

Casper is such a good SON.

Lisa on

not my taste and wonder where he got the money to pay for it

Primera on

Looks cheap, probably all he could afford

shala on

He does have a job and has for years. He is a dancer. People shouldnt make it sound like he just mooches. Its not like he is a begger. The guy does work, regardless of who he works for. He can actually choose to buy things with his own money. Sometimes how much something costs doesnt matter as much as how unique the gift is.

Chela on

It’s nice he got a gift…. Why always think the worst? The man works and he is obviously not a millionare but at least he did something for his girl. Obviously a publicity stunt gone bad cause nobody cares…… And just helped humiliate the man some more.

*FactsOfLife* on

I heard he gets 10 Grand a month allowance. So I am sure he could afford it. Boy Toy.
