Miss Universe Philippines (MUP) revealed its 2020 crown called the “Filipina”, to celebrate its first ever victor under a new organization.
The Villaricas, who have a chain of pawnshops all over the country, made the prestigious crown. They expressed their gratitude saying, “We are very grateful to them for stepping up to the challenge of creating this masterpiece.”
On the first glance of the crown, the topaz, rubies and sapphires resembling the Philippine flag will immediately be seen. The sparkling diamonds―patterned as leaves―symbolizes a woman’s journey to seek for success. At the highest points of the crown are the yellow pearls, the perfect final element that also complements the other beautiful stones, completing the masterpiece.
The materials used to bring this crown to life are undoubtedly precious, but the process is also as wonderful because an all-female staff assembled all these stones with their magical hands to produce this crown.
