The crown, the hallmark of royalty. Adorned and ornamented fit for a queen. The Miss Universe Singapore 2016 crown was designed by ORRO to be a masterpiece in its own right. The designers & jewelers at ORRO envisioned the design of the crown such that it reflects the values of an independent woman, one who is dignified, sophisticated and elegant. It serves as a reminder of the unwavering strength of a woman, her capacity to love and care, to help and make this world a better place out of her sheer will and unrivalled dedication. A distinctive feature of the Miss Universe Singapore 2016 crown is the leaf-like filigree design hand-crafted with an intricate milgrain finishing, symbolizing Singapore’s renowned reputation as green garden city.
The crown by ORRO marks a milestone for the new Miss Universe Singapore 2016, that she is the ultimate symbol of inspiration, the pinnacle of her accomplishment and more to come. It is in this spirit, that the crown becomes more than just a mere object or gesture, it has become a symbol. A symbol unbounded by limitations but inspired by possibilities, something which ORRO as a jewelry house truly believes in.
DESIGNING THE MISS UNIVERSE SINGAPORE 2016 CROWN
The Miss Universe Singapore 2016 crown’s design was conceived by the fertile collaboration between the organisers of Miss Universe Singapore and our designers & jewelers at ORRO. It is a design borne out of passion, dedication and commitment. The success of the crown’s design is a testament to the refine craftsmanship that ORRO is well known for. It truly is the magnum opus of the company given the level of details and intricacies of this masterpiece.

A level of greatness and unrivalled perfection. ORRO hopes to position itself as new breed of jewelry designer, one that caters to a new generation of jewelry aficionados and customers.
The crown was designed using the advancement of modern technology by using a 3D modelling computer software. The software intelligently calculates the number and size of each gemstone to be set based on the design, using a parametric algorithm, produces a symmetrical beauty.
The bridging of new technology and traditional craftsmanship is captured by using traditional craftsmanship methods such as moulding the model of the crown on wax. We ensured that the crown was hand crafted by talented craftsman with decades of experience, where each and every stone was hand-set on the crown. ORRO strongly believes that the processes and handcrafting techniques employed in this context will revolutionize how jewelry will be designed in the near future.
A total of 1583 pieces of individual cut ORRO Premium Master Cut diamond simulants of 27 different shapes and sizes were hand-set on the Miss Universe Singapore crown, totalling approximately 124.09 carats - including 7 fancy yellow Pear Cut gems with the largest weighing 10.50 carats.
Each and every gem that is set on the crown is individually cultivated and processed. They are subsequently hand cut and hand polished to perfection. ORRO has always prided itself in adhering to the highest standard of jewelry making, and this crown is a true testament to that.
Each and every ORRO Premium Master Cut diamond stimulant undergoes rigorous testing in terms of quality and its details. This is to ensure that every stone is created and cut according to a mathematical formula that replicates the brilliance of a naturally mined diamond ray for ray. With such a high standard set upon by ORRO, all of our jewelry pieces are a reflection of the term 'in pursuit of perfection.' The crafting of the Miss Universe Singapore crown clearly has positioned ORRO at the frontiers of avant-garde jewelry design.
