The jewelry brand described the earrings as "inspired by Philippines' popular title 'The Pearl of the Orient/Perlas ng Silangan'."

When Catriona was crowned as Miss Universe 2018 on Monday, the Filipino-Australian beauty queen from Bicol wore the “Alab at Dangal” patriotic earpiece.

It is made of gold, studded with diamonds and rubies with golden south sea pearls.

When Catriona captured the Miss Universe Philippines title earlier this year, her ear cuffs which she conceptualized with Tessera Jewelry also became a trending topic.

Called the "Three Stars and the Sun" ear cuff, the jewelry is inspired by the Philippine flag and was personally designed by Catriona.
