BOSTON, July 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hearts On Fire®, The World's Most Perfectly Cut Diamond®, today announced that Miss Universe Australia 2013, Olivia Wells, has been crowned with a one-of-a-kind diamond crown created solely by Director of Design Ilaria Lanzoni.
As the official jewelry sponsor of the event, Hearts On Fire worked to create a completely unique, customized design that was an extension of the successful Illa Collection that features comets and star inspired jewelry. According to Lanzoni, the crown took about three months to complete and comprises 631 perfectly cut diamonds. It is valued at more than $150,000 and is 17 carats in total.
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 also designed by Lanzoni. Both the crown and diamond necklace feature diamond stars, which is a tribute to Australia's Southern Cross. Wells will wear both the crown and the pendant as she begins her tour across 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.
This is Hearts On Fire's first ever design of a diamond crown of this manner. The brand 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.
