She almost lost her diamonds too!

Rabiya Mateo has been proudly representing the Philippines in the US for her many pre-pageant events for the 2020 Miss Universe competition. She's got a slew of press activities, a ton of training to do, and even more photoshoots to attend. As we all know, things don't always go as planned, and beauty queens are prepped to handle anything that comes their way with grace and poise. And that's exactly what happened to Rabiya during a recent Miss Universe photoshoot!

Over the weekend, Rabiya was doing a shoot with other Miss U contestants at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Florida. In a video posted by Aces & Queens, Rabiya's training camp, the 24-year-old beauty queen recounted the unexpected events that happened to her that day: "So a lot of things happened. First of all, I accidentally fell [in] the pool, so I got half of my outfit wet. And then I almost lost my diamonds."

The video also showed Rabiya laughing off the whole blunder while in waist-deep pool water. She even flashed out a peace sign and pointed to her ears referring to her missing diamond earrings, haha!

In her personal Insta account, Rabiya went on to explain that the, "diamonds are safe. You have nothing to worry about. I just want to say thank you to Drake of Luna for letting me borrow his diamonds." Good to know!
