About the Miss Earth pageant

After establishing a track record in mounting world-class beauty pageants over the last decade, Carousel Productions Inc. decided to reinvent and improve the concept of beauty competitions for the new millennium.

Because many people admire and aspire to be a beauty queen, Carousel Productions, Inc. believed beauty queens would be a good and effective advocate of worthy causes. To give life to this vision, Carousel Productions Inc. organized and launched in 2001 the MISS EARTH Beauty Pageant, a beauty event whose raison d’etre was to have its candidates and winners actively promote and get involved in the preservation of the environment and the protection of Mother Earth.

Apart from a strong emphasis on environmental protection programs, MISS EARTH also aims to showcase and promote various tourist destinations. Every year, 80 to 90 candidates from all over the world compete on beauty and knowledge of environmental issues.

The winner of Miss Earth will serve as the Ambassador to environmental protection campaigns worldwide.

Now on it’s 11th year, Miss Earth continues to build its reputation as the most relevant and worthwhile beauty event in the world, setting a legacy of beauty and responsibility.

About the Miss Earth crown

The Miss Earth crown has become a symbol of unparalleled pulchritude and enduring advocacy through the years. To underscore and remind the Miss Earth titleholders the responsibilities that come with this crown, Carousel Productions commissioned the Official Jeweller of Miss Earth, Ms. Ramona Haar, an ecologically-minded artist, to design and craft a new Miss Earth crown. This radiant masterpiece that embodies a broader meaning of “beauties for a cause” was unveiled last November 16, 2009.

The new 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. To lessen the environmental impact of mining, the new crown is 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 puts it, “the earth laughs in flowers.” The recurring spiral motif, on the other hand, has always been associated with maternal power and feminine prestige.

But the gems are the highlights of this masterpiece. Black Diamonds, Sardonyx, Calcite, Ruby, Jade Quartz Crystal, Garnet, Peridot, and Pearls are some of the stones that adorn the exquisite Miss Earth crown.

Gathered from 80 of the participating countries this year, the stones signify more than just the Earth’s precious resources. They characterize the diverse backgrounds, cultural significance, and mystical embodiment of our beauties. Although they come in different shapes, sizes, color and finish, they all form an integral part of the most coveted Miss Earth crown in undeniable harmony. Just like the crown, the Miss Earth beauties work together to have all nations unite in our joint efforts to help preserve and protect our one and only home: the planet Earth.
