“This year’s Miss Pennsylvania is local to Central PA,” says Tonia Ulsh, President and Chief Operating Officer of Mountz Jewelers. “Having Katie as a Palmyra resident, a current student at Penn State University and a member of the Penn State Blue Band, makes her presence at this event even more exciting for our entire team.

At the expo, Katie will wear the official “Miss Pennsylvania Crown”, courtesy of the Pennsylvania Jewelers’ Association (PJA). The crown, which is made of 14-karat gold, features 92 carats of amethyst stones, including a 37 carat amethyst stone cut in the shape of a keystone surrounded by 214 diamonds. The gemstones and gold of the crown were donated by local jewelers and members of the PJA, and made into the custom crown valued at $35,000. The crown will be on display at Mountz Jeweler’s Camp Hill store, starting Monday, September 25 until Wednesday, October 4. We encourage all princesses at heart, to stop by and try on this gorgeous one-of-a-kind crown that only Miss Pennsylvania has the opportunity to wear.
