Australia’s own Miss Universe Tegan Martin, will be competing in the preliminary competition of Miss Universe on January 21st.
In 2014 Miss Martin, as ambassador for Hearts on Fire, visited Anthony’s Fine Jewellers in Brisbane to meet guests and to showcase the Miss Universe Australia crown.
Since 2013, The Hearts on Fire Company have been the official designers of the Australian crown.

Recently, the Miss Universe pageant was in the news again with reports that a selfie caused tension among competing countries.
Miss Israel’s Doron Matalon reportedly jumped in on the group image with contestants from Japan, Slovenia and controversially Lebanon.

Lebanon and Israel are currently at war and many Lebanese people are calling for Miss Lebanon’s Saly Greige to lose her title for her contact with the “enemy”.
Miss Lebanon, who appears to be gritting her teeth in the image, defended herself on social media and was sure to point the finger in the other direction.
“I was having a photo with Miss Japan, Miss Slovenia and myself, suddenly Miss Israel jumped in, took a selfie, and put it on her social media. … this is what happened and I hope to have your full support in the Miss Universe contest.”
The crowning results for Miss Universe will be announced during the final competition on the 25th of January.
