Miss USA Pageant Participants Shortchanged
The 2009 Miss USA Pageant debuted Tiara's and jewelries made of synthetic diamonds portrayed as conflict free. It is very unfortunate that participants who spend so many years preparing for such a platform are given cheap substitutes for the real diamonds in the name of going green & Conflict Free.
If the pageant owners (one of them is Mr. Donald Trump) are so concerned about 'CONFLICT FREE' then they should have considered sourcing diamonds from counrties like Australia, Canada or a dozen other countries or sources which are confirmed 100% Conflict Free.
