When Kristen Dalton became the 58th winner of the Miss USA pageant title on April 19, 2009 at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, the North Carolina beauty got to wear a breathtaking gemstone crown.
This crown valued at $202,000, the Miss USA crown features 1,936 flawless lab-created gemstones for a total of 166.82 carats set in 325 grams of gold and platinum. Fifty-one of these jewels adorn the oval centerpiece to celebrate each of the 51 women competing to become Miss USA 2009.
This glittering green crown was exquisitely crafted. Must say, the winner is sure one lucky lady to don this crown, along with the title.
