At an exclusive reveal reception at Graceland, Memphis, Tennessee, Fourth generation Mouawad Co-guardian Pascal Mouawad unveiled the Mouawad Miss Teen USA® Power of Hope Crown before an audience of VIPs and in the presence of Paula M. Shugart, President of The Miss Universe Organization.
The crown is a unique, bespoke work of extraordinary craftsmanship that carries with it a vital message enshrined in its title and design: that the young generation embodies our hope for a brighter future and the courage and strength to shape this future of which we all dream.
The Mouawad Miss Teen USA 2020 Power of Hope Crown follows in the prestigious footsteps of the Mouawad Miss Universe 2019 Power of Unity Crown, arising from the partnership between Mouawad and The Miss Universe Organization. As such, the crown is inspired by the values of the Miss Universe Organization, featuring motifs of petals, leaves and vines, crafted in 18-karat gold and set with white diamonds, to represent communities whose bonds unite them in the same purpose of empowering one another to become a force for good.
For the Mouawad Miss Teen USA 2020 Power of Hope Crown, the flag of the United States is evoked through star motifs that symbolize the star quality within all women to create a brighter future. The crown’s centerpieces, five blue tanzanite gemstones haloed by diamonds, shimmer with a brilliance that radiates hope, complemented by ruby and tanzanite. The selected gemstones embody the colors of the flag while also reflecting the values associated with these colors: red for strength, white for the goodness within all of us, and blue for a just and equal society, with opportunities for all.
