Chivalry is not dead.

Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth proposed to his on-again, off-again girlfriend Miley Cyrus, 19, on May 31 with a vintage but contemporary Neil Lane diamond ring.

The Australian-native helped design the 3.5 carat cushion-cut, which is handcrafted in 18-karat gold and complete with intricately carved diamond floral motifs, Lane revealed Wednesday.

The chivalrous proposal was a move that pleased Millionaire Matchmaker star Patti Stanger, who weighed in on the surprising engagement exclusively to Celebuzz.

“I like that Liam proposed and that leads me to think he’s an old fashioned gentleman,” the Bravo host said.

But isn’t Cyrus too young to wed, Patti?

The television matchmaker disagreed, telling us:

“Hollywood tends to make their celeb teens grow up fast and Miley is no exception. Although she’s only 19, she’s been going out with him long enough to know.”

Whether or not they last could be another chapter in the storied romance.

Said Patti, “If they have their priorities in order and don’t fall to the whims of the LA party scene, this couple could really make it.”

A rep for the “Party in the U.S.A.” songstress confirmed to Celebuzz that she accepted Hemsworth’s proposal when he popped the question last week; the pair first met on the set of their 2009 romantic movie Last Song.

“I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam,” Cyrus told PEOPLE.
