Not only has the venue been changed from Sun City to Carnival City, the Miss SA organisers have just revealed a new crown for a new queen, which they have named Enhle – meaning “the beautiful one” in isiZulu.

“The crown is a real show-stopper and worthy of Miss South Africa,” says Miss SA 2004 Claudia Henkel. “While it is eye-catching and beautiful, it is also a practical headpiece.”

Fun facts about the magnificent Enhle:

  • The name was chosen through a social media competition
  • It features three massive sugilite stones, which are also known as stones of love
  • Other stones used include amethyst and white quartz crystals
  • The stones were mined in Northern Cape near Hotazel

According to the crown’s designer Howard Friedman of Jack Friedman Jewellers: “Sugilite is believed to have protective and healing properties. We hope that it will keep Miss SA safe during her reign, as well as help her unite our nation.”
