The 86 ladies who are here in the country are all vying for the Miss Universe crown.

But aside from the title, the crown itself is considered a big prize.

Its base is made of 18-karat white gold strip weighing 220 grams.

Its estimated worth: $300,000.

Miss USA Deshauna Barber's crown is worth around $200,000.

It has "33 diamonds, 30 Czech crystals, 222 white sapphires, 340 blue sapphires, 112 rubies, and a white gold base, giving it a total weight of 372.56g," according to the pageant's website.

The Miss Venezuela crown, according to Wikipedia, does not stay with the winner, who will relinquish it to her successor the following year.

Designed by engineer George Wittels, it changes "every five years," and is made of "white gold, platinum, silver, Austrian crystals and pearls."

Miss Russia Yuliana Korolkova's crown has "a thin weaving of lace, a magnificent scattering of gemstones...topped with exclusive pearls and Swarovski crystals."

Designer Daria Norkina further described, "I believe that this particular crown will become the perfect example of Russian grace, elegance and splendidness."

Miss Barbados Shannon Harris received the newly-launched "Broken Trident" crown last year.

It has an estimated value of BDS$10,000 or PH 250,000.

Designed and produced by God Diamonds in Thailand, it contains pearls, blue and yellow sapphires, and Swarovski crystals.
