When Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth announced their engagement in June, many people questioned if they were too young to be getting engaged. However, in an interview in the September issue of Marie Claire, Miley showed her maturity and opened up about the engagement, the proposal and the gorgeous Neil Lane ring.
She told the magazine, "I don't really care about the wedding or the piece of paper as much as I do the promise we've made to each other." Miley also adds that they “want to have a long engagement."
Although Miley won't tell us exactly how Liam popped the question, she shared that it was in their 8,000-square-foot mansion in Los Angeles and that it was a "complete surprise."
Miley also talked about her vintage 3.5 carat Neil Lane ring. She said that she loves “that it's old and has a story. And I'm happy because it doesn't look like anything else I wear."

We saw her trying on veils and leaving a final dress fitting with best pal Cameron Diaz -- and now, Drew Barrymore is finally married! The actress exchanged vows with her fiancé of five months, Will Kopelman, Saturday evening at the star's Montecito, California home, Us Weekly reports.
The traditional Jewish ceremony, which was officiated by Will's rabbi and included a custom-made chuppah (or canopy), was described to People as "a classic, simple, very-pretty, garden-inspired" affair.
Drew, 37, and Will, 34, reportedly both wore Chanel -- a highly-predicted choice, as Will's father is the former CEO of the luxury design house. Photos have yet to be released of the much-anticipated gown, but sources tell Us Weekly that the bride wore a "long white dress in pleated muslin and organza," custom-designed by Karl Lagerfeld himself and complete with floral, organza, muslin, tulle and feather embroidery. Wow!
As for accessories, Drew is said to have worn a black satin belt to accentuate her waist (and alleged baby bump), along with Chanel Fine Jewelry to finish the look.
According to E! Online, guests enjoyed a pre-ceremony cocktail party on the lawn and were ushered into the tent for an "emotional" service. After Drew and Will posed for photos in the garden, everyone gathered for an intimate reception, where they danced to an '80s tribute band (inspired by Drew's favorite era).
Celebrity guests included BFF and Charlie's Angels co-star Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth, Drew's Fever Pitch co-star Jimmy Fallon and his wife Nancy Jujoven, and Busy Phillips and husband Marc Silverstein.
At the end of the night, the couple made a romantic exit, riding off in an old classic convertible Mercedes (with the top up!) that was decorated with pink roses and ribbons.
Congrats to Drew and Will!

Like Keira, the ring is classic and romantic. Keira and James have not released any wedding planning details, but we are looking forward to hearing the scoop.
Stay tuned for all the news!
We knew Kris Humphries didn't exactly skimp on fiancee Kim Kardashian's engagement ring, but today we got a closer look at just how massive 20.5 carats of bling is!
Humphries worked with Lorraine Schwartz (who in the past has styled Kardashian's jewelry for red-carpet events) to create the perfect ring, reports People.com. "[Lorraine] always listened to what I would want and the shapes I love," Kardashian said. "I had said I loved an emerald cut and they were scheming and plotting for a while." Looks like the secret planning paid off: "In high school I went to Macy's and bought this fake ring, my ‘perfect' ring, and this is almost the exact same," she said.
Humphries' expectations of the sparkler were a bit less specific. "I just knew I wanted it to be big!" he said. The New Jersey Nets player says he knew it was meant to be with his lady from the beginning, telling People.com that "probably within a month of meeting her I knew she was 'The One.'"
The couple is planning to tie this knot this summer in a ceremony as big as the stunner that adorns Kardashian's ring finger. "I've always dreamed of a big wedding," she told People.com. "I'll probably do something really over-the-top." Surprise, surprise! --Brittany Gilpin

Celebrities make-up and break-up all the time, so sometimes it's tough keeping tabs on the on-again off-again relationships in Hollywood (but we do try).
So what's a girl to do with the ring when an engagement is called off or a marriage ends in divorce (are you taking notes, Madonna?). Some celebs auction off items to raise money for charity, but when you need to pay rent (or buy a new handbag -- come on, who are you kidding?), reselling your stuff can be the right way to go.
Stuck with jewelry from a bad relationship or a diamond ring sitting in your drawer? While eBay is the marketplace for items you find in your closet, those with high-end jewels can turn to I Do Now I Don’t to auction off their bad relationship memories.
Started by Steven Sherman after his fiancé left him, the site allows users to buy and sell luxury rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and even wedding gowns at a fraction of the retail price. Sherman took the engagement ring he bought for the "love of his life" to the jeweler and was offered thousands less than what he paid for it. He then decided to start a business to help other not-so-lucky-in-love people recoup the costs of their broken relationships.
