Neil Lane Diamond & 18k Yellow Gold Engagement Ring for Miley Cyrus

She’s come a long way from Hannah Montana! Ex–Disney Channel star/19-year-old pop princess Miley Cyrus and 22-year-old Hunger Games hunk Liam Hemsworth got engaged last week in grand Hollywood fashion—with an Art Nouveau–inspired 18k yellow gold mounting set with a 3.5 ct. cushion-cut diamond dating back to the 19th century. Made by Neil Lane, the floral-motif mounting is an uncommon choice for such a young couple: According to research from, the majority of brides still wed in white metals; plus, anecdotally, bridal jewelry designers tell JCK that halo effects still sell best. Could Cyrus’ ring inspire a rush on more yellow gold engagement rings? Possibly, especially since new yellow styles are worlds away the popular channel-set mountings of the 1980s, some of which are still sold today.
