Pageants have always commanded the largest and most flashy tiaras. Almost everyone knows the miss Universe pageant, but rarely do we see Miss Earth televised. Catharina Svensson became the first Miss Earth in 01, an annual international beauty pageant promoting environmental awareness. In November 09, Larissa Ramos from Brazil became the winner of Miss Earth 2009, and also the first to wear the newly designed crown for the Miss Earth title holder. Official jeweller Ms. Ramona Haar unveiled the newly designed crown on November 16, 2009.
The new crown is made of 100% recycled precious metals. The crown had a whimisical appearance to it. The crown also is comprised of gemstones and semiprecious stones that were donated by the 80+participating countries. The various stones that were sent were black diamonds, sardonyx, calcite, rubies, jade quartz crystal, garnets, peridot, and pearls. The Miss Earth crown used through the years of 2001 -2008 was designed by award winning designer named Arnel Papa. The crown's frame was made from sterling silver and clear swarovski and pearls.
