Jennifer Lopez has been showing off her emotions through her choice of necklace during her most recent TV appearance.

The superstar singer and actress was appearing in her role as a judge on American Idol and chose to accessorise her figure-hugging bandage dress with a simple necklace, sporting a pendant spelling out the word love.

The slim silver necklace was not the only item of jewellery she chose to wear on the show, as she was also wearing small pearl earrings, a large ring and a designer ladies watch on her wrist.

Choosing the necklace could have been a significant move for Lopez, as her appearance coincided with her estranged husband Marc Antony filing for divorce.

She split from her partner some months ago but they have only just begun formal proceedings to separate.

Since going their separate ways, Lopez has started dating model Casper Smart, who has appeared alongside her in the video for her new single Dance Again.
