The Story Behind Catriona Gray’s Pintados Inspired Earrings


Catriona Gray shows us once again that every little detail counts as she wears her Pintados inspired earrings. 


Back in 2018, we celebrated the coronation of Catriona Gray as she became the new Miss Universe. We remember her iconic red evening gown inspired by the lava of Mount Pinatubo and her captivating slow-mo walk that stunned the whole world. But a small detail of her ensemble created a new trend in the Philippines, her Philippine flag inspired ear cuffs. And as Catriona Gray comes back to the stage to host this year’s Bb. Pilipinas Coronation night, she has once again enamored us with her presence. 

She graced the stage with such poise and charm that it is simply impossible to veer our eyes away from her. And just like her Philippines flag inspired ear cuffs, she was seen wearing earrings that are simply hard to miss.

Tiering down to her shoulders, Catriona Gray selected earrings that carry a deeper meaning. Designed alongside Mjorian Jewelry, the earrings were deconstructed Pintados tattoos painted on the Pintados warriors. Referenced from the Boxer Codex, transcripts and illustrations display the intricate tattoos that symbolized the spirit and strength of the warriors. 

And as Catriona wears them with pride, she embodies the warrior spirit she has seen and witnessed from this year’s 2022 Binibinis.
