LeAnn Rimes's Wedding Accessories: Old, New, Borrowed and Blue

LeAnn Rimes Wedding Jewelry

LeAnn Rimes followed the age-old tradition of wearing something old, new, borrowed and blue when she married Eddie Cibrian on Friday night — and she did it in sparkling style. “Old” came courtesy of jeweler Neil Lane: Rimes pinned his $250,000 platinum art deco brooch (it has 25 carats of diamonds!) to the waist of her handmade Reem Acra gown. “It was an absolutely stunning vintage piece and I think it completed the dress,” Rimes — who also dazzled in a pair of Lane’s 10-carat diamond earrings — tells PEOPLE. “New” was represented by Rimes’ most meaningful jewelry yet: three wedding bands — standing for Cibrian and his two sons, Mason, 7, and Jake, 4 — from Cibrian’s childhood friend Brent Polacheck of Polacheck’s Jewelers. “From the very beginning, LeAnn was very expressive about the importance and symbolism of three bands,” Polacheck tells PEOPLE. “His boys are an incredibly important part of their lives and she wanted to incorporate her feelings for them into her rings.” The rose-gold bands with rose-cut pear-shaped and single-cut round diamonds also match Rimes’s 5-carat engagement ring. Polacheck describes the groom’s ring — sandblasted rose gold paved with black diamonds on the outer inside rims — as “sexy and tough at the same time.” To further personalize her husband’s ring, Rimes added an inscription inside: “I love you more.” “Borrowed” came by way of designer Ippolita, who lent Rimes $12,000 worth of her rose five- and two-diamond bangles. Rimes added a modern twist to her look by stacking a mixture of the bracelets — 10 on each arm — for her walk down the aisle. And for the final touch? “I had a blue garter,” Rimes playfully reveals. “And a blue Hanky Panky thong that said ‘I do’ [in Swarovski crystals].” For all the details — and exclusive photos from Rimes and Cibrian’s intimate wedding — check out the new issue of PEOPLE, on stands Friday.Marisa Laudadio

While I understand her wanting to express that the kids are important, really inappropriate idea with the rings. Step-parenting is a really delicate dance, especially when kids are young and relationships with exes have been contentious. She may have successfully stolen away the guy but I think she needs to stop with pushing that the kids are “hers”. They aren’t. They are his and his ex-wife’s and while she can certainly have a good relationship with them and should, I get the feeling that she is to immature to respect the boundaries. It sometimes seems like she wants to step into another woman’s life and take it over. Shades of SWF.

People good or bad can’t always help falling in love, I don’t think either set out to do that, and people who judge should watch what might come back to them. Only God is to JUDGE.

Strange how people can’t seem to “get past” the cheating; when Angelina did the same thing and everyone seems to think she is just a great upstanding person instead of the homewrecker she is, and Brad a cheater. Looks the same to me.

I think that it’s the way they handled the aftermath that has led to all the “judgment”. They could have been a LOT lower key and I don’t care if they were both in supposedly loveless marriages, it still didn’t have to play out in such a way as it did. It made them look low class. They may be happily married forever or it may last a couple of years. They are not different that anyone else. Relationships are hard and starting out the way they did may or may not affect them negatively in the long run. Who knows? I certainly hope that if they start their own family, people aren’t still wishing them bad things but I guess that will depend on how they handle the whole thing. Infidelity and divorce happen all of the time. Most people don’t start twitter feuds and then act shocked when people side with the scorned exes. It also doesn’t help that she seems to be trying to overstep her boundaries with the kids. You can’t erase you or your spouses past by insulting your or their exes. It makes you look insecure and good relationships don’t flourish when one or both involved are insecure. I certainly don’t wish them or anyone else ill will.

She’s in the ex’s face non-stop. It’s consumed her. She FLAUNTS her affair, FLAUNTS her body, now the honeymoon, with digs (to the ex) on twitter about how romantic that it was on the beach (like the ex’s), same dress designer, etc. That’s truly sick. And now it’s flaunting the rings. Like she married the children, too. It wasn’t about loving her new man. It’s been about taking him away. She’s competing with the ex-wife, not loving anyone. She gets off on taking away, not finding new love. She wouldn’t want someone unless they were attached. No fun in that. She has to be “better” than someone else. She will be bored with him, now that she got him.

Kelly on

did we really need to know about the thong?? Seriously…

susan on

Yeah. The thong. How in your face is that, to the ex? I bet at this point the “ex” is thrilled that he’s hooked up with some psycho. Too bad her children got dragged into it. The father is an idiot. He married an egomaniac.

Jon on

Who cares! She’s still a Cheater, Karma could definitely be a major b@itch to her?
