(PRWEB) December 19, 2012
The 61st annual event is being held at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, site of the Miss USA competition held in June 2012. 89 women from all across the world will be competing for the crown, which will be passed on from reigning Miss Universe 2011 Leila Lopes.
“As Miss Universe, Leila, the first winner to ever hail from Angola, supports HIV/AIDS prevention and was also named Drylands Ambassador by the United Nation Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) which is in place to combat land degradation in Africa. Diamond Nexus has been impressed with all of her environmental and humanitarian efforts since winning her title,” commented Kyle Blades, Director of Marketing.
“Diamond Nexus is an environmentally friendly company, producing conflict free stones for our jewelry, we are very proud of Leila’s valiant efforts to help raise awareness of these important environmental issues.” Blades said. “For us, watching the devastating effects of the mined diamond industry in terms of poisoning the soil, the effects of strip mining and the exploitation of the mine workers has created a need for us to provide an alternative with our lab created jewelry.”
“Being the first eco-friendly jewelers in history to partner with the Miss Universe Organization, Diamond Nexus is excited to have designed the breathtaking crown that the new Miss Universe will soon be wearing.
The Miss Universe Competition airs live 8-10pm ET Dec. 19 on both NBC and Telemundo, being viewed by 190 countries, and having an anticipated audience of over a billion viewers worldwide.
