2017 MISS EARTH KAREN IBASCO, PHILIPPINES
The current Miss Earth crown and elemental crowns were unveiled in 2009, when Carousel Productions commissioned the Official Jeweller of Miss Earth, Ramona Haar, an ecologically-minded artist. The design features various gemstones endemic to the countries participating in Miss Earth Pageant, which they donated as a symbol of cooperation and unity towards a universal goal of saving Mother Earth. The crowns are made of 100% recycled 14K Gold and Argentums Sterling Silver. The central design is a flower to symbolize a happy and thriving earth. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "the earth laughs in flowers." The recurring spiral motif, on the other hand, has always been associated with maternal power and feminine prestige. Black Diamonds, Sardonyx, Calcite, Ruby, Jade Quartz Crystal, Garnet, Peridot, and Pearls are some of the stones that adorn the exquisite Miss Earth crown.
