Miss Universe 2002 to 2007 | The crown with 120 South Sea and Akoya pearls. | For the years 2002 to 2007, Miss Universe used the famous Mikimoto crown depicting the phoenix rising, signifying status, power, and beauty.

In 2002, master pearl designer Mikimoto became the official jewelry sponsor of the Miss Universe Organization, creating all three crowns and tiaras since then, which includes the crown for Miss Teen USA, Miss USA and Miss Universe. The Miss Universe 'phoenix' crown, shown here, features one 18mm size pearl, the most rare and largest pearl created by any oyster. The crown also has 500 diamonds, totaling almost 30 carats and 120 Akoya and South Sea pearls.

Mikimoto Pearl Crown - This crown was crafted by Mikimoto Company, the world's great manufacturer of cultured pearls, in 1978 to commemorate the 85th anniversary of the discovery of their method of culturing pearls.
