Miss Universe Philippines 2020 crown dazzles pageant fans

Pageant fans were thrilled at the new Miss Universe Philippines 2020 crown which was revealed last Tuesday.

"The crown represents the achievement of one’s mind over body as a Filipina. It will be a symbol of triumph over one’s journey of trials, hard work and perseverance in obtaining one’s dream. A dream that has become a reality that would inhabit her mind, heart and spirit," the MUP said on Facebook.

Some of the comments:

"I love it! If who ever wears it she would be like "Im a Pinoy cause my mother is Pinay and I can show my PINOYNESS to everyone with this crown cause I am Pinoy."

"I love the symbolism of the crown ? Congratulations to the luckiest woman who can wear this crown."

"Ang ganda nung background music it enhances the crown and video angvictorious and at the same time apaka phenomenal yung vibe."

"I saw the flag of the Philippines."

"I get goosies! Grabe MUP!"

The MUP said it is grateful for the Villarica Family, owners of the Villarica Pawnshop chain, for creating the masterpiece.

"In the Philippines, Meycauayan, Bulacan is renowned as the center of world-class craftsmanship in fine jewelry-making. It is also home to the Villarica Family, owners of the Villarica Pawnshop chain.
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. 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 MUP said in a statement.

On the MUP crown, organizers said: "The elements of the FILIPINA crown reflect the true meaning of womanhood. The swirl of leaves are 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 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."

The grand coronation of  the Miss Universe Philippines 2020 will be held at the Baguio Country Club on Oct. 25.
