LeAnn Rimes shows off her giant anniversary present ring: cute or awful?

These are some photos of LeAnn Rimes at the Malibu Beach Inn Hotel yesterday. As we discussed, LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian celebrated their one-year anniversary yesterday, and of course, LeAnn spent the whole weekend on Twitter to celebrate. She was tweeting photos of her “presents” and such, which I’ll get to in a moment. First, this tweet made me LMAO: “Sitting w/ Eddie reading Kahlil Gibran. Amazing quote…. ‘Is there a greater fault than being conscious of the other person’s faults?’” OMG. That just happened. LeAnn and Eddie spent their anniversary sitting around, while Eddie read Khalil Gibran and LeAnn thought about how everyone judged her, and she decided to tweet about it to sound smart and she misspelled the famous writer’s name. Amazing. This is a photo she tweeted, which makes me think that LeAnn was giving Eddie a beej as he was reading. Ah, first anniversaries!

Anyway, LeAnn got presents! Nevermind that she had to give Eddie her credit card and explain to him exactly what kind of jewelry she wanted. She tweeted, “Angels gave me a gift…so pretty! What a great day already!” She probably means that her step-sons gave her this necklace… which I actually kind of like (I would like it more in white gold).

And before that, she tweeted this photo of the ring Eddie gave her. She wrote, “I have a very thoughtful husband with GREAT taste!!!!” Seriously? It’s a pretty tacky-looking cocktail ring.

What kind of stone is that? I’m trying to figure it out. I think it’s semi-precious. Like, a quartz or jade or maybe green tourmaline. Here’s a site with a list of green semi-precious stones: what does it look like to you?

    It’s not a ring. It’s a circle of diamonds and her lizard skin is showing underneath.

  2. Dani says:

    I will admit that I think the ring is cute but not quite anniversary gift material and LOL at the “BJ” picture. It totally looks like that.

  3. Boo says:

    I like the green ring. It’s big, but it’s cool looking. The stone seems to have sparkles in it, so it doesn’t appear to be jade, aventurine, or any of the usual suspects.

    She looks a mess.

    • bros says:

      it looks like rough diamond although its too big for that. possibly labradorite and the outside is obviously normal cut diamonds. it’s very pretty and I hate admitting that.

    • Agnes says:

      i agree – i think the ring is very pretty.

    • GHJackie says:

      Actually, one of the characteristics of aventurine is that it has little sparkles in it. That’s probably what it is, only the colour zoning is a bit odd. It could possibly be hydrogrossular garnet.. Moss agate maybe, although that’s generally supposed to have some translucent parts and mossy looking green inclusions, which this doesn’t really look like.

      @bros: definitely not rough diamond (green diamond rough tends to have a “skin” of green, not solid colour throughout) and not Labradorite either, no “oil slick” blue green sheen.

      To the guess below: Moldovite is a form of natural glass and is transparent. Way too much lustre for turquoise.

      At any rate, it’s likely a form of quartz or maybe garnet and the designer is probably Kimberly McDonald.

      I think it’s very ugly. If you’re going to pay $10 grand for a ring, at least make sure it’s got an expensive stone in it.

      • Annie B says:

        You have GOT to be kidding. That ring could be worth $10K?! I am gobsmacked. It LOOKS like plastic, costume jewelry. What a waste of money.

      • Kim says:

        Pretty sure its a Kimberly Macdonald labradorite or druze but im fairly certain its labradorite. I think its gorgeous. Ive seen it in real life and it looks way better than this photo.

      • GHJackie says:

        Can’t be druze, since it’s faceted. If it’s labradorite, that’s an exceptionally bad photo with extremely poor lighting since there is no irridescence to be seen.

        Labradorite usually has visible straitions running through it (stripy looking) and this doesn’t seem to have that, which would kind of make me think it’s not that. But again, gemstones are all about how they react with light and rotten lighting in a photo can make a big difference.

        Either way though, I wouldn’t pay 10K for a Labradorite and diamond melee ring. It probably cost about $500 max to make, assuming 18K gold. Maybe less, depending on how much gold there is or isn’t in the setting behind the stone. I can’t believe people get that kind of money for stuff like this.

      • Candyland says:

        GHJackie, rock in the link is even uglier then LeAnn’s ring. It looks like someone picked up a driveway rock with moss all over it.

      • GHJackie says:

        Uvarovite druzy is actually very pretty in person, as is Labradorite. But still, 10K for either is an exercise in throwing your money out the window for style over substance. And frankly, if you look at the other views of that druzy ring that I linked to, the workmanship is no where near what you should be getting for that price. The prongs on the back have been welded on and the joint to the bezel setting is poorly polished and what’s more, don’t align in the same direction. Plus, the diamonds that are set around the “main” stone look to be “brilliant cut” and brilliant cut stones are never put in a closed back setting like these have been.

        She must be spending a lot of money on advertising to be gettng thise sorts of prices.

  4. marybeth18 says:

    I like her manicure. There. That’s the only nice thing I could think to write about this couple.

  5. Marjalane says:

    Looks like green turquoise to me. What era did her white dress come from? That entire outfit is sketchy.

  6. iloveretro says:

    Too much. It’s all too much. Tacky, tacky, tacky.

  7. some bitch says:

    Well, I really do like her white skirt.

  8. Meggie says:

    I’m allergic to horses, why did I open this so early in the morning?! Now I can’t stop dry heaving….sheesh

  9. Alexis says:

    Her desperation is revolting. She’s not married to Eddie, she’s married to twitter! This bi&%h needs to get a LIFE and a HOBBY!

  10. Samster says:

    Its gaudy and ugly. The necklace is nice i hope for goodness sakes she did not just claim eddie’s sons “gave” her that gift. Please. Eddie bought that, handed it to them, and said gift this to our breadwinner. Why oh why can’t leann lunch with Tori Spelling instead of Kim kardashian. Tori navigated how to approach homewreckery in the press and can def help out Leann’s faux pas on twitter.

    • Jayna says:

      You have to be kidding me about Tori. She sleeps right away with a married man and both leave their spouses after the movie wraps. Her “boyfriend” had just adopted a baby. And they go everywhere blabbing how in love they are right out of the gate, showing no shame or respect for the spouses they just destroyed. Ask her husband’s ex-wife how she thinks Tori “navigated” it.

      • Samster says:

        I get what you are saying. I only meant that Tori navigated in how she started off as an a-hole when she was a homewrecker and antagonized the ex wife and turned her reputation around by stopping all of her gloating/taunting to come out better PR wise. You don’t see Tori invoking her stepson into her media blitzes possibly (hopefully) out of respect for his mother’s wishes. Leann’s whole “bonus mom” crap is hurting her and her “MY bonus sons” just invokes a bad taste because it brings out the mama bear instinct in her fan base. I know thats the biggest thing that bugs me about Leann at the moment since imo Brandi is better off without cheating Eddie. If anything, I think Leann could learn from Tori in how to navigate her bad image and resurrect her career.

  11. Patricia says:

    Bless her heart, both pieces of jewelry are tacky as hell…just like the two of them.

  12. Kimbob says:

    Ugh! She’s so insufferable! What does she do all day…sit around and take what she thinks are cute pics to put on her twitter? For real??!!! No moment is sacred w/her….every moment lived is for public consumption. She’s so damn insecure…pitiful.

    • Bex says:

      Just what I was going to say! Can there be no quiet private moment that isn’t splashed all over the internet.
      Can you imagine how crazily annoying it must be to have every moment paused while she tweets it then focuses back again from the phone – ‘now where were we?’

  13. brin says:

    It looks like it’s made of solidified bird droppings (some must have landed in Leann’s hair).
    And I don’t believe for one second that Brandi’s boys gave her the necklace. Only in Leann’s crazy mind.

  14. dorothy says:

    Wonder how much the necklace and ring set HER back. “Here’s my Visa Eddie, get that ring and that necklace”.

  15. lower-case deb says:

    her skirt looks like a valance

  16. Jayna says:

    I liked the necklace, not the ring. But that’s just because I hate huge rings. I see those type huge rings on a lot of people and celebs these days, so whatever floats your boat, I guess.

  17. Patricia says:

    That skirt is from the Strawberry Shortcake Collection.

  18. Nanea says:

    Wow, do her hands look old.

    And the ring is ugly, and LeAnn is oversharing, as usual.

    If hubs or I had spent that insane amount of time on Twitter that she does, the other one would have divorced the Twidiot in a ♥beat before making it to anniversary #1.

  19. Franny says:

    meh, I don’t hate the cocktail ring. Its actually pretty cute.

    What I find awkward is when people take pictures of themselves like the one where she is laying on Eddie’s chest. Its all “look how cute we are, he’s playing with my hair!” (which okay, I LOVE when people play with my hair) but how do you go about taking that picture? “Hold still E, and look like you love me, so I can show everyone our love” its so tacky and fake.

  20. Jan says:

    That ring looks like one of those plastic gawdy children’s rings that you find in a 10 cent lucky dip or children’s party favours toys, along with those coloured clicking things, party hats and various colored plastic whistles – all things you would include with the mints, candy and jelly beans in a Goody/Party Bag for small children to take home. I wore rings that looked like that when I was 7 years old. I felt SO grown up and like a ‘beautiful lady’, lol (cringing now). That ring was probably purchased in the toddler/kiddy party section of Wallmart.

  21. Jezi says:

    This is exactly why people think she’s a disgusting human being. She is insinuating Eddie’s sons gave her that ring. This woman helped to break up their mother and father. There is no way in heck, that these boys would want to give this woman a gift celebrating the other woman’s relationship to their father. Her thoughts “see these boys are sooooo happy I’m in their lives and are celebrating our love” as if the public should follow suit.

    Oh and that pic of her laying her head on Eddie’s chest, I love how she angled it so everyone can see how much he truly loves her because he’s stroking her hair oh so lovingly. Give me a damn break.

    • brin says:

      Jezi…isn’t that the most absurd thing out of all of this, that she’s insinuating the boys got her an anniversary gift?! She keeps topping herself on the crazy.

    • jasperkitty says:

      Oh please…as much as I do not like that ring, she didn’t say that it was given by the boys. And apparently you can read minds too…how do you know all this. GET OVER IT! She’s married to him, she flaunts it…it’s done!

    • Baylor says:

      To me , that is even worse, because it’s angel wings. Is she trying to tell people that the boys think she’s some sort of “angel” or that they think she is soo special that they want angels to protect her? THere are no words for this woman.

      Kind of like, “Oh, everytime the boys see anything related to angels they think of me!!”

    • claire says:

      My dad never got my mom a gift from me for their anniversary, when I was that young. It was an adult thing, it was “their” thing. Yes, as older, you start buying your parents presents to celebrate their anniversaries. But not when you are 8 and 5, in any situation that I’ve ever heard of. BUT, if they’ve got custody during their anniversary time, and are having a party, then I think the couple is going to include them. Kids don’t understand the significance, so they’re like: there’s a party and people are giving presents? we want to give one too!

      And it’s just as simple as that. However, Leann has narcissistic personality disorder, I think most would agree, so she’ll exaggerate the meaning and significance of everything, and play into what Jezi is talking about: the kids deeply love me and deeply are so happy that we are together, blah, blah, blah, instead of just letting it be what it is.

  22. Aschia says:

    Pitiful. She wants people to envy her so bad but who would want that fantasy cyberlife with a loser/cheater? My grandmother was spot-on when she said you can tell alot about a man by the way he treats the mother of his children.

    That ring is tacky and ugly and totally fitting, like the dress-up jewelry for kids when they are playing pretend. It looks like a giant pickle, or Plankton from Spongebob Squarepants. I think FastEddie just makes fun of her. You know she probably has preordered 20 copies of RHOBH Season 2 DVD so maybe that will help her fix some of her fashion tragedies.

    I just read that Brandi is hosting a party for the Kentucky Derby. Wonder if any familiar horses will be there to run for the roses?

  23. Krock says:

    Lawdy that pic of her is…well, um….

  24. Turd Fergussen says:

    I *love* this ring.

  25. Jezi says:

    Wasn’t the Malibu Beach Inn where they were hooking up when they were married to other people? So basically let’s go back and celebrate our anniversary where we were first boning? Nice!

    • Hope says:

      spot on Jezi..she is disgusting..has no moral fibre and should be put in an asylum. Maybe Eddie is waiting for her to truly lose it so he can get his share of the $$$

    • brin says:

      Oh gross. Looks like she’s wearing the tablecloth they dined on, too.

    • Life of Brian says:

      Well would you expect anything less? These two are the epitome of class!

    • Annie B says:

      And her other most favorite and special place in Cali is Laguna Beach, a special “family” place to “bring the kids”. Also where the video exposing their LovE story was recorded, finger sucking and all. She’s vile.

    • Rita says:

      Jezi, I think you’re correct. The Malibu Beach Inn is where LeAnn planted the photog before she and Eddie arrived seperately. Then, after the sex romp, Eddie drove away with a child seat in his vehicle while LeAnn shared room service with another man who set-up the scenario. Imagine that conversation and the laughter in the room while Eddie drives home thinking his little “bone party” was private.

      I still wonder if Eddie has ever figured out that LeAnn set-up the finger sucking video, Malibu sex romp photos, and the basketball game “surprise”. Stupid is as stupid does.

      • leah says:

        Mr. Ed is not too bright, she was so obvious in her stalking of him, and calling the paps and getting the photos and videos out right away. She looks guilty when she is texting on the street in front of the restaurant after their “finger sucking” performance video, like she is trying not to let him catch her alerting the media. I also think that he is such a narcissist himself that he would be flattered if he knew all the work and money she paid to get the media onto their affair and to hurry up his divorce. He is complicit in the complete destruction of his children’s family life and childhoods. Everyone must be sacrificed for Leann and Eddie’s fame and self-love.

  26. girl says:

    My first reaction was that that ring was made from a granite countertop. It’s pretty ugly.

  27. Hope says:

    Why does her face always scream (evil c*nt)..just look at that pick..she looks pissed off..haha

  28. Eileen says:

    Lawdy, the camera is not her friend…which makes me wonder why she insists on shoving her photos onto everyone.

  29. JamesRobert22 says:

    I’ve followed the whole story for a couple of years. I’ve noticed that some of her loudest and outspoken fans and/or supporters have backed off. Wonder if they follow Brandy now? Better than a soap opera.

  30. sasquatch says:

    the dress is by bcbg max azria. you can find it on shopbop.com and obviously bcbg stores. if you end up buying it one size too large it looks like your granny’s nighty.

  31. Geo says:

    Is there another person alive who is as obviously insecure as she is? Is there nothing that she thinks is sacred? People who are in happy, secure relationships don’t generally feel the need to tell the world what they are doing on a second by second basis. Implying that the boys gave her a gift on their anniversary cements my low opinion of her. Their father handing them a package and telling them to give it to her isn’t exactly heartfelt. Next up will be tweets of photos of the lovely gift the boys give her for Mother’s Day. She is a narcissistic piece of garbage who is so obviously manipulative that it is pathetic. Everyone knows that she pays for everything, including the gifts he “gives” her and it makes her look like her money is the glue in their relationship. She’d better hustle her butt to the chile cook-offs this summer and quit cancelling shows because Eddie won’t be hanging around if she can’t keep him in the lifestyle he has become accustomed to.

  32. lil ole me says:

    I wish my husband would buy me a white Land/Range Rover like the one she drives. I always see them and the used ones are quite reasonable in price. Do Leann & Brandi own the same car? It seems like I saw Brandi driving one also.
    Hmmm… when she swf’s Brandi she has taste- but left to her own accord the result is that GARISH ring!
    The Daily Mail called it- yup that is one GARISH RING. I don’t like diamonds much & prefer colored stones- but I’d KILL MY HUSBAND IF HE WASTED OUR MONEY ON SOMETHING SO UGLY. Sorry, just my opinion

  33. NeNe says:

    I’m sure that she is enjoying the ring she bought for herself.!! G-d knows, Eddie didn’t buy it…

  34. The Original Mia says:

    Fug ring. Not at all what I’d expect for a 1st anniversary present. He must have spent his own money on it.

  35. Beclove says:

    Surprised Ed would tell the boys about their anniversary- if memory serves he didn’t bother to tell them about the wedding till they rolled up at the ceremony.

  36. lil ole me says:

    ****”Wickedness never was happiness”-
    my bff just said this to me when she saw me looking at this Leann Rimes thread. Never heard it before- but seems fitting for Leann

  37. Blue says:

    That ring is ugly & not really first anniversary material. Maybe a birthday or a just because.

  38. Life of Brian says:

    Is her phone surgically stitched/glued to her hand? I hardly EVER see a pic of her without her damn phone in her hand. Especially if she is alone. Got to have that phone in hand just in case (putting it in her purse would be too far away). Isn’t this why you girls carry handbags? To put phones, lipstick etc in so you don’t have to carry them separately?
    I’ll say it again- this bitch seems like such a codependent mess. LITERALLY can not be alone (i.e phone in hand)- even when she is alone

  39. Kim says:

    I cant stand her but that ring is GREAT! Its a labradorite and very cool. The necklace is blah.

    What the heck is she wearing? A summer skirt with a leather jacket? This girl just can not dress for the life of her.

  40. Madchen says:

    Dress: 1970′s beach wedding. Stone: Hot out of the tumbler at the Gem & Rock shop. Rhinestones: Aisle 3 AC Moore, right next to the feather boas and tiaras. Lawd.

  41. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    She never misses an opportunity to look at a camera does she?

    I hope she’s as diligent with her bank account…

  42. Gene Parmesan says:

    I swear i just got maybe the exact same ring from Forever 21 on saturady. FOAL your husband is cheap

  43. Gisele says:

    Those pieces are made by a company called Shylee Rose. They don’t sell particularly expensive jewelry so maybe Ed scrounged up the $300 bucks for the ring and $150 for the necklace himself. I would venture to guess the watch she bought him cost a heck of a lot more than what he bought her. Plus she has to foot the bill for the hotel, the paps, etc. They have basically been on vacation for a year. If they keep that up, her money will be gone and so will he. To the person who said they got the exact ring at Forever 21, they do look almost exactly like LeAnn’s ring. They also cost about 5 bucks. Maybe Eddie bought the cheapo version and told her it was the designer version. With her impaired vision I am sure she wouldn’t know the difference.

  44. TXCinderella says:

    The ring is pretty, although a bit too big for my taste. Purchased with the LeAnn Rimes pre-paid Visa card.

  45. skuddles says:

    Hideous ring!!! I see Eddie’s taste in jewelry is as bad as his taste in women.

  46. lilac says:

    Brandi has that samee bag as LR (the plasticy pink looking one in the last pic) only in purple. There are picks of her from a year or so ago wearing it.


    BAHAHAH LeAnn is such a fool

  47. char says:

    she’s wearing a white tablecloth, orange jacket and carrying a pink handbag. to think, she said she would like to start a style line, who for -tables, cows,and straw baskets. Thats the line she’s wearing, oh also, please add the ugly ring eddie gave her which looks like he chipped off a piece of her granite countertop.

  48. Candyland says:

    LOL, looks like Eddie-boy bawt the setting then had his kid use a rock tumbler for the stone. And LeAnn just dumb enough to wear it out and shove it in people’s face braying how beautiful it is. Ring is Fugly. I used to pick stuff out like then when I was a preteen and think it was “pritty.” LOL, preteen jewlrery, just Eddie-boy’s and LeAnn’s speed.

  49. Lady Lupton says:

    It’s a labradorite and I’m sad a beautiful stone’s been made to look that tacky.

  50. Candyland says:

    I like the dress, though it’s kinda tableclothy.

  51. tinypie says:

    She has an odd taste in jewelry

  52. Camille (The original) says:

    Now *THAT* is an ugly ring. So fug, just like them.

  53. Jennifer12 says:

    She even has to insinuate BRANDI’S sons into her anniversary. Can’t she leave them alone for a damn day? She probably doesn’t put that phone down for a second. “I *am* sucking, Eddie! Just let me get the angle! And tell Liz to move over!”

  54. Maria says:

    Looks like a piece of shiny green overpriced rock. Geez, people in Hollywood think anything is pretty when it has a big price tag.

  55. AMD says:

    This is slab of labradorite…although it does not looks like a very high grade of stone because I don’t really see any flash in it….I love the ring, but he got ripped…this I know as I am a jewelry designer by trade…not a big fan of L Rhimes…Great ring tho.

  56. crtb says:

    That is the ugliest ring I have ever seen. The necklace isn’t much better!
    You’d think people with money would buy something with class.

  57. Shannon says:

    Ummm I’m pretty sure he got that ring at Forever 21.

  58. judyjudy says:

    Taking pictures of gifts to put on twitter is so tacky! Who does that???? Well…I guess we know who would be that tacky….

  59. LadyD says:

    Um Hello??!! First Anniversary??? Seriously this is what EC gives LR??. How about BIG DIAMONDS necklace , braclet, earrings, yellow diamond something lavish looking. It looks like he went the same day..last minute to buy her these gifts…just shows how much time and effort he put into his gift for LR…costume jewlery.

  60. Reg says:

    She didn’t misspell anything. Khalil Gibran is also known as Kahlil Gibran. It says so on the very same Wikipedia post you linked.


  61. master yoda says:

    we used to put pennies on the railroads. They look like that ring once the train runs over them.

  62. Bob Loblaw says:

    Who says you can’t polish a turd?

    • Gisele says:

      That is a great description for LeAnn herself. An unattractive person on the inside and out, with lots of money for clothes, jewelry and plastic surgery procedures. Despite all of this, it doesn’t make her any more attractive because the clothes are badly put together, the jewelry is too much and the plastic surgery has gone horribly wrong. LeAnn Rimes, the polished turd.

  63. Mary says:

    Wow all that negative energy directed at two people. Eddie’s ex wife was not a real babe, she’s done tacky too. Yet people still go on and on about these two. Eddie’s x has made peace with this couple, you need to do the same. The kids really care for her and that tells a lot. You all need to get a life. No I am not a fan of these guys…but when I read so many hateful comments…well frankly, it scares me.

  64. TexBon says:

    I’m boggled that she has the lifestyle she does. I wasn’t aware she even still made music. Everyone comments that he must get his money from her but, not being mean, I honestly thought she was “retired”. Seems like she just got back in the press when she was hooking up with Eddie. Can you actually make money from cheating and tweeting?

  65. Stacia says:

    It’s a Mardi Gras-esque type ring that they throw from the flots.

    ..Hey thow me somethin’ mista’!

  66. kudzuqueen says:

    Sorry if this has been said, But I am pretty sure this is labradorite.

  67. Sapphire says:

    Both ring and necklace are Shylee Rose and cost very little. MeAnn is heavily involved in promoting her “Bff since 13″ line and I doubt her “Bff” charged her much or anything.
