At a dazzling event at Icon Siam, Bangkok, Thailand, Mouawad unveiled the Mouawad Miss Universe Thailand 2020 Crown during the preliminary competition for Miss Universe Thailand 2020 before an audience of VIPs and select media.
Titled the “Power of Authenticity”, the Mouawad Miss Universe Thailand Crown was inspired by the theme of the 2020 Miss Universe Thailand pageant – ‘Real U, Real Universe’, carrying the message that we should adhere to our core values, be unique while being helpful to others, and not try to conform to external pressures but find happiness by shining from within and being our true selves.
The Power of Authenticity Crown incorporates authentic motifs that celebrate Thailand’s noble heritage, with the crown’s base recalling the traditional headwear of the Ayutthaya nobility and the upper motifs inspired by the intricate patterns of Thai temples. Such motifs are emblematic of how values of craft and skill are entwined with beauty in Thai culture and how intelligence and talent have long been considered as the essence of nobility.
Crafted from 18k gold, the Power of Authenticity Crown is set with precious gemstones that reflect the colors of the Thai national flag while also carrying a deeper symbolism: white to symbolize the purity that is inherent in authenticity, sincerity and inner wisdom, the boldness of red for the power that is unleashed when being true to ourselves, and blue to evoke the nobility associated with speaking the truth and living a life of purpose.
The Mouawad Miss Universe Thailand 2020 Power of Authenticity Crown is the second crown to be crafted by Mouawad exclusively for The Miss Universe Organization and follows in the prestigious footsteps of the Mouawad Miss Universe 2019 Power of Unity Crown.
