Elements of the Filipina Crown
Here are the elements of the Filipina crown that reflects the true meaning of womanhood:
Swirl of Leaves
The swirl of leaves in the crown is like the lives of every woman who seeks success in different forms yet still keeps the Filipino values in their hearts.
Every diamond embedded in each leaf lusters like smiles that sparkle the lives of people that she encounters.
The yellow pearls express creativity, intelligence, optimism, and fear of God – characteristics that make every Filipina a gem in her family.
Sapphire, Ruby, and Topaz
The Sapphire, Ruby, and Topaz in the crown represent the flag of every proud Filipina, a woman who believes in the beauty of her race, the strength that runs in the veins of her blood, and the beat of her heart that would always describe a true Filipina.
Creator of the Crown
According to MUP, this year’s crown was created by the Villarica Family, owners of the Villarica Pawnshop chain. And, they are based in Meycauayan, Bulacan which is renowned as the center of world-class craftsmanship in fine jewelry-making.
“We are very grateful to them for stepping up to the challenge of creating this 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.”-Miss Universe Phillippines
Furthermore, MUP has announced earlier that the filming of the Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Preliminaries and Grand Finals will be held in Baguio City.
