The actress wore six pieces of platinum and diamond jewellery from Harry Winston, which totalled 199.26 carats, Us Weekly reports.
Briefly.co.za gathers that the biggest and the most valuable piece the actress wore was the necklace, which weighed 73.55 carats.
What Lopez wore included a line drop earrings, a wire diamond bracelet, a cluster bracelet and several rings - including a cushion-cut diamond ring, a diamond cluster ring and a 15-carat emerald cut engagement ring from Alex Rodriguez, which is worth a casual $1.4 million.
As expected, people have taken to social media to react to Lopez's fashion style at the SAG Awards.
Brent-Tammi Watson on Facebook said: "I love JL and respect her hustle! She is an icon and an example. What would be epic...if the dress was $9 from Ross! Keep the jewels and the glam, but also keep it real!"
According to Miriam Pyke, the actress looked absolutely stunning. Pyke said the back of Lopez's dress is amazing, adding that she rocked it.
Phyllis Simcich, however, believes that the jewellery was loaned from jewellery stores.
She said: "The jewellery is loaned from high-class jewellery stores. She has to give it back."
Ava Riccardi said Lopez looked beautiful and elegant in her dress.

Zyron Kycer Villamil Leporada on Facebook would have preferred that Lopez diverted the money she spent on the diamonds to help the people who suffered from a volcanic eruption in the Philippines.
She said: "Why spending much for looks..if u can (sic) donate it to the people who suffered from a volcanic eruption in the Philippines.."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Legendary actor Robert De Niro was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards held in Los Angeles on Monday, January 20.
The Godfather star took the opportunity to take a swipe at the American president, Donald Trump, over his "abuse of power."
He said: "We are in such a dire situation, so deeply concerning to me and to so many others. I have to say something. There's right, and there's wrong, and there's common sense, and there's an abuse of power."
