ICYDK, a new Miss Universe Philippines was just crowned, and it’s none other than Catriona Gray.
In the final round of the pageant, Catriona looked absolutely radiant in a jaw-dropping Mak Tumang beaded masterpiece.
Aside from the gown, however, what we couldn’t stop looking at was the gorgeous ear cuff that the beauty queen wore on her right ear:
It’s called “Three Stars and the Sun” by Tessera Jewelry—what a beautiful tribute to the Philippine flag! According to Carl Deo Fider, owner of Tessera Jewelry, the custom piece was a collaboration between Catriona and the jewelers: "The design was conceptualized mainly by Catriona herself together with her stylist Ton Lao and [us.] The idea was to come up with the best possible representation of the country. They reached out to our team for this collaboration, which took more than a month of hard work and craftsmanship."
According to Carl, the cuff that Catriona wore is an "18k solid gold studded with 4 carat (total) natural diamonds" and is valued at P178,000.
But if you don't have that much money to spare on a piece of jewelry, the brand offers a more affordable version which starts at P9,900.
