A day after Miley Cyrus tweeted a picture of herself with her engagement ring, her fiancé Liam Hemsworth arrived back in LA. The 23-year-old Hunger Games actor looked tanned and relaxed following a break in his native Australia and a trip to the Phillipines.
After weeks of speculation that the young couple's relationship had ended, with the reappearance of the ring and Liam back in LA, it seems that their romance could be back on track.

The Disney-star-turned-pop-princess sent a clear message to the world when shared a photo with more than 11.5 million Twitter followers of her in a playful horse outfit with her 3.5-carat Neil Lane ring in full view.
Reports suggested that Miley, 20, decided to end her engagement to Liam, following rumours that he had a night out with January Jones at a pre-Oscars party at Hollywood's Chateau Marmont.
"Miley is still upset with Liam. She took her engagement ring off to make him mad," a source said. "But, it doesn't mean that they have split. Miley says they are still together.
"She is crazy about Liam, but sometimes doesn't treat him great," the source continued. "She likes things her way and tends to play games. Liam is also a strong person and that's why they often butt heads."
Miley consequently defended their relationship on Twitter. "I am so sick of LA. And sick of the lies that come with it," she wrote. "I didn't call off my wedding. Taking a break from social media #draining."
However, friends close to the couple confirmed that they had "split for now" but that Miley hadn't cancelled the wedding.
While the Hannah Montana star laid low in LA last week, former Neighbours actor Liam spent time in Australia with family and friends. He was spotted surfing in Sydney with a male friend and also spent time with his mother as rumours swirled around the state of his relationship.
He then jetted to the Philippine capital Manila to promote the fashion label Bench and his new film Empire State.
Miley and Liam announced their engagement in June 2012 after three years of dating. The former Disney star met the handsome Aussie on the set of their 2009 film , The Last Song. In the past she described him as "her first serious boyfriend" after romances with Nick Jonas and model Justin Gaston.
