American actress and singer Miley Cyrus is engaged to her boyfriend of three years, "The Hunger Games" star Liam Hemsworth, People magazine reported Wednesday.

The 22-year-old Australian actor met Cyrus, who is 19, while shooting "The Last Song" together in 2009. He proposed on May 31 with a 3.5-carat diamond ring from jeweler Neil Lane, according to People magazine.

According to Lane, the cushion-cut ring is handcrafted in 18-karat gold with intricately carved diamond floral motifs in an art nouveau pattern. The center stone dates back to the late 19th century.

“It was hand-cut around 1880 or 1890 and it’s unique and in its original form,” Lane told People magazine. “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.”
