Reigning queen Catriona Gray didn't just wear any earrings to Miss Universe, she proudly wore symbols of the Philippines.
Tessara jewelry on Facebook revealed that the now-in vogue patriotic ear cuffs all started with Catriona's sketch during her preparations for the Binibining Pilipinas pageant earlier this year.
That ear cuff is called "Three Stars and The Sun."
But ever so extra, Cat went over and beyond the ear cuff in her Miss Universe bid.
At the preliminary event, Catriona wore dangling earrings called the "Pearl of the Orient" inspired by Philippines' title Perlas ng Silangan.
