Now that everyone is getting over the fact that young lovebirds, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have gotten themselves engaged to be married, we can concentrate on all the really important things – such as her RING. After celeb engagement news is unveiled the topic almost always turns automatically to the bling. What is it? How big is it? Who designed it? The Liley case was no different. Just a mere hours after the engagement news, the topic turned to what is on her left ring finger.
While the new bride-to-be Miley hasn’t come out and shown us her engagement ring, various reports are publishing what the jeweler that reportedly designed her ring has said. Just like in the case of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, and the curious case of Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez – their respective jewelers were the ones to spill the beans about the bling.
People magazine is reporting today that celebrity jeweler Neil Lane was the one who created Miley’s engagement ring, which she apparently is already wearing, so Liam must have proposed with it.
When Liam Hemsworth approached celebrity jeweler Neil Lane to create an engagement ring for Miley Cyrus, he wanted “something unusual,” Lane tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Something really beautiful and romantic.” What The Hunger Games star got was a 3.5-carat cushion-cut diamond ring, handcrafted in 18-karat gold with intricately carved diamond floral motifs in an art nouveau pattern. And the center stone is extra special: it’s an antique dating back to the late 19th century.
“It was hand-cut around 1880 or 1890 and it’s unique and in its original form,” Lane says. “At that time no two diamonds were alike, as they were all hand-cut, so it’s fascinating to look at because it hasn’t been re-cut to look contemporary over the years. I find that really romantic.”
Hemsworth was happy with the final result; Lane says the two “worked back and forth and it’s everything he was looking for.” Finished just last week, it was all ready for Hemsworth’s May 31 proposal.
This is the pic that People magazine, and lots of other sources, have published purporting to be the engagement ring that Miley is wearing. We are yet to actually see it on her finger up close, and this could be a mock-up of the design, but so far this is what we got.
Allow me to focus on the ring for a bit rather than the engagement (I know, I know, it is ridiculous how much we fixate on diamonds and THE ring!) This one is definitely unique, it isn’t the usual white gold or platinum that we have come to see from most celeb engagement rings recently. Miley certainly has a bit of a bohemian style to her so I am not that surprised that she has gone for something a bit different. I do loove the idea of the antique stone which dates back to around 1880 or 1890, and the vintage aesthetic is very pretty, but this style is not for everyone I would guess. Isn’t Liam adorable though working with the jeweler and proposing with the ring? I know that some people are skeptical of this engagement and fear that Miley and Liam are too young, but I for one am a sucker for romance, and I can’t help being sucked into this story.
What do you think of Miley’s engagement bling?
UPDATE: Miley has *just* been spotted at LAX sporting her new engagement ring. You can’t quite see the details of it, but you can certainly see that the ring is yellow gold and looks pretty similar to the one in the pic above from the jeweler. The center stone is also bigger than I had initially assumed from the drawing. She is definitely enjoying showing it off by the way she is holding her hand -good for her, I say.
