Expert: LeAnn Rimes’ Engagement Ring Worth $85,000

With the news of LeAnn Rimesengagement to Eddie Cibrian still making waves, Celebuzz spoke to “Diamond Guy” to the stars David Mamane, CEO of, about LeAnn’s brand new 5-carat oval diamond in a platinum and rose-gold setting. It’s a gargantuan engagement ring he estimates as being worth $85,000.

This ring is comparable to many other celebrities engagement rings. It’s not on the same scale as say Kate Middleton or even Carrie Underwood [her country music competition] for that matter, but I’d put it in the same price range as Katy Perry’s and Jessica Simpson’s.

Although it isn’t as priceless as Kate’s, whose ring was formerly owned by the late Princess Diana, or as valuable as Underwood’s $150,000 ,five-carat sparkler, LeAnn’s ring from CSI: Miami actor Cibrian still rivals Katy Perry and Jessica Simpson’s to make it among the best celebrity engagement rings of 2010 based on style and quality, Mamane believes.

But is her groom the best of 2010, by that same logic? She tweeted her thoughts on the subject yesterday:

The ring is beautiful, man is better :)

Her ex-husband who she left for Eddie, Dean Sheremet, became engaged to his girlfriend Sarah Silver recently, and he tweeted a photo of that ring with the caption, “Pretty ring for a pretty girl!”
