Los Angeles, May 27 : Actor Ben Affleck reportedly gave Jennifer Garner an 11-carat diamond as a pre-11th anniversary gift. According to National Enquirer, Affleck “hand-delivered a massive, super sparkly pre-11th anniversary diamond to Jen, but not set in a ring,” reports aceshowbiz.com.

A source close to Affleck told the site: “Not-so-subtly popping his ‘new vows’ question, Ben presented Jen with a whopping 11-carat diamond, one carat for each year since their marriage. They’d split just a day short of their 10th anniversary last June amid allegations of his nanny cheating.”  The source continued saying that Affleck decided to give her a necklace instead of a ring because he didn’t want to scare her.

“But not wanting to scare Jen off with an actual ring, Ben had the huge stone set into a gorgeous platinum necklace and told her to consider it a ‘promise trinket’ for his heartfelt intentions, and hopes she’ll suggest resetting the rock into a new wedding ring,” the source shared.
