Ah, what kind of engagement ring do you give to a girl like Miley Cyrus?
Her fiancé Liam Hemsworth went directly to the experts, asking celebrity jeweler Neil Lane to create something spectacular. Lane told People.com that Liam wanted “something unusual… something really beautiful and romantic.”
Lane created a 3.5-carat cushion-cut diamond ring, handcrafted in 18-karat gold with intricately carved diamond floral motifs in an Art Nouveau pattern. The center stone is also an antique dating to the late 19th century (ring pictured is a replica).
The jeweler explained, “It was hand-cut around 1880 or 1890 and it's unique and in its original form. 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 and had it ready for his May 31 proposal.
