The DIC Crown 👑 — Estimated to be worth $300,000 USD, produced by Czech company Diamonds International Corporation (DIC). Paulina Vega, Pia Wurtzbach, and Iris Mittenaere was crowned with the DIC in their respective pageants. 🇨🇴🇵🇭🇨🇵 ⠀
💎 The crown is reminiscent of the Manhattan Skyline and is composed of 311 diamonds, 5 pieces of blue topaz, 198 pieces of blue sapphire, 33 pieces of heat—fired crystals, and 220 grams of 18k karat white gold.
This crown was retired in 2017 due to a copyright infringement and subsequent payment issues between DIC and the Miss Universe Organization, thereby reverting to the Nexus crown during the reign of Iris Mittenaere of France.
