Miley Cyrus arrived in The Big Easy revealing her brand new bling (and some of her brassiere). The just-engaged starlet made the trip from L.A. to meet up with her now fiance Liam Hemsworth who is on location filming.
Usually Miley or Liam would be the big story but we all know it’s about that ring right now! Here are the deets on the diamond that got Miley to say, “Yes!”
Beverly Hills jeweler-to-the-stars Neil Lane created the sparkler with help from Miley’s fiance Liam Hemsworth. The ring was handcrafted in 18-karat gold with intricately carved diamond floral motifs in an art nouveau pattern. The center stone is an antique dating back to the late 19th century, according to Lane. “He wanted something really beautiful and romantic,” Lane said.
“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.”
Lane set smaller diamonds in the gold to highlight the main stone, “It’s a contemporary design based on vintage aesthetics. The light flashes and sparkles no matter where Miley moves her hand.”

Well played Hemsworth. Well played…
