We're only a couple of days away from the Miss Universe Philippines 2022 Coronation Night. On April 30, Bea Gomez will pass the crown to her successor—and what an exquisite crown it will be.

Revealed during the pageant's gala night held this April 19, the La Mer en Majeste Crown will be perched on the head of our next Miss Universe Philippines. According to Jewelmer, the craftsmen behind it, the piece is a "tribute to the vibrant culture and history of the Philippines."
"In French, when the word 'majesty' is used with that of the sea, it evokes respect and admiration for the water element and its many wondrous qualities. The sea is both artist and muse, paying tribute to its mystery and nurturing power," they further explain.
Adorning the front of the crown are multiple golden South Sea pearls, and Jewelmer calls each one a "miracle" and a "symbol of purity." The rare pearl variant was once hailed as the country's National Gem. Given that the sea is regarded as the "queen of the elements," it's only befitting that our next representative to the Universal stage represents its majesty.
