RAPAPORT... Diamond brand Hearts On Fire, which is the official jewelry sponsor of the Miss Universe Australia Pageant, created a unique design for the crown that was an extension of its Illa Collection, featuring  comets and star-inspired jewelry. The crown took about three months to complete and included  631 perfectly cut diamonds, 17 carats in all, and it was valued at more than $150,000.miss universe

The pageant crowned Olivia Wells this month as  Miss Universe Australia 2013. Wells, a 19-year-old medical student from Black Rock, Victoria, was also presented with a gift from Hearts On Fire, an Illa Comet Pendant. Both the crown and diamond necklace were created by the brand's director of design, Ilaria Lanzoni, and highlight diamond stars as a tribute to Australia’s Southern Cross. Wells will wear both the crown and the pendant as she tours  Australia to visit Hearts On Fire retailers and attend other events. She will represent Australia at Donald Trump’s Miss Universe final in Moscow later this year.

Hearts On Fire will remain the official jewelry sponsor of Miss Universe Australia through 2015, and the crown will be passed down to each successor during that time.
