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.”
