LeAnn Rimes received a “blingtastic” diamond ring from hubby Eddie Cibrian on Christmas Eve, which also marked the fifth anniversary of their engagement in 2010.
The country singer posted a photo of the new stunner on Instagram, along with this caption: “Celebrating 5 years since we got engaged! #christmaseve #thecibs #husbandandwife.”
The ring seems to feature a large oval diamond center stone accented by a delicate pavé diamond band. The new ring will replace Rimes’ original engagement ring, which had a 5-carat oval center stone framed by a diamond halo.
Rimes explained to a fan on Instagram that the new ring will share the same finger with the three rose gold diamond bands she’s been wearing since 2011. The bands symbolize Cibrian and his two sons, Mason and Jake.
In describing her new jewelry, she wrote, “It’s a long story. Different stone, new setting. Yes, I still wear 3 bands and I play around with those depending on my mood. I LOVE my ring. I’ve loved all of them. This one won’t be worn much on stage so I don’t destroy it. I really get into it, and precious metals don’t do well being banged against a mic over and over. Lol.”
A short time later, the 33-year-old returned to Instagram to post a romantic selfie of her and her husband, along with a note wishing her fans a happy Christmas Eve.
Rimes and her 42-year-old actor husband began dating in 2009 and tied the knot in Malibu in April 2011. The couple renewed their vows in a private ceremony a year later.
