The Miss Universe Philippines organization unveiled on Tuesday, the crown that will be worn by the winner of the 2020 pageant dubbed as Filipina.
The crown was made by Villarica, known for its chain of pawnshops. In a Facebook post, Miss Universe Organization shared that Meycauayan, Bulacan is renowned as the center of world-class craftsmanship in fine jewelry-making, and acknowledges that it is also home to the Villarica Family, owners of the Villarica Pawnshop chain. They also continued by showing their gratitude towards the pawnshop conglomerate for stepping up to the challenge of creating the very first Miss Universe Philippines crown masterpiece. “More than their expertise on gems and jewelry, they provided us with valuable insights on the significance of precious stones and what each one represents. These gems are emblems of dreams, ambition, happiness, pride, self-worth, and empowerment.”
“Having a point-of-view as informed as theirs allowed them to make a crown that truly looks and feels special. This is another major contribution to the cause of Women Empowerment from the same group founded by an empowered Filipina— a group that, until today, continues to place their belief in maintaining an all-female staff,” the Miss Universe Philippines organization continues.
The crown contains pearls, sapphire, and rubies to symbolize the Philippine flag.
