Here’s the inside scoop on LeAnn’s wedding bands and Kate’s engagement ring — and you’ll be floored at how many hundreds of thousands of dollars they cost!

LeAnn Rimes flashed her giant triple-band rock as she returned from her wedding to actor Eddie Cibrian. No wonder she was all smiles at the Toronto airport. Kate Hudson also was beaming on the Today show — and wearing her sparkling new ring –when she gushed about her engagement to Muse rocker Matt Bellamy. So whose ring has the most bling?

Hollywoodlife.com got all the details from jeweler Aslam Bakshi of Diamond Images USA Inc. LeAnn’s main ring has a six-to seven-carat cushion-cut diamond with small diamond accents on the sides. It’s valued at around $300,000! She’s wearing the diamond band with three rose gold wedding bands that symbolize Eddie and his sons Mason, 7, and Jake, 4, from a previous marriage.

Kate’s brand new ring is an approximately five-carat emerald-cut diamond with two baguettes on each side  — valued at around $250,000 to $300,000.

Good thing Today host Matt Lauer pointed out the ring this morning because the pregnant Kate says she was “waiting for someone to notice” — instead of making an official announcement.

Consider it done, Kate!
