That was no ordinary bling on the wrist of First Lady Michelle Obama at the DNC fundraiser in New York Tuesday night. Those fancy diamond cuffs were the creation of 23-year-old Katie Decker, whose namesake jewelry line has been making a serious splash since her graduation from Texas A&M two years ago.
The native Houstonian is over the moon with the fab pub that photos of the first lady in Katie Decker are already providing. Michelle Obama's stylist picked up the bracelets at Katie's showroom in Fragments in Soho. You can see more photos of the Obamas from the evening here by checking out the Gotham Hall event.
If you've been saving your nickels and dimes, the cuffs are available locally at Judith Ann Jewels. The First Lady wore Katie's Lotus cuff priced at $15,000 with 2.9 carats of diamonds, her Gothic cuff at $15,350 with 2.17 carats in diamonds and the Quatrefoil bracelet at $11,800 with 1.73 carats in diamonds.

Sorry, those are just hideous.
America’s first “historical” bling bling “president”.
I like them. I wouldnt wear them all together.
Handcuffs might be more appropriate.
Yes they are hideous and doing this in a time when many are out of work is outrageous
Young black youth 50 percent unemployment and you hear nothing from community leaders. Still waiting for Obama money I guess
Obama doesn’t look comfortable kissing the Mooshell.
The TOTUS even tells them when to kiss for the camera.
This is going down as the tackiest couple in the WH ever — even the klinton hillbillies looked classy by comparison.
Graduate from a “cow college,” create some gaudy bling and you make a name for yourself? It’s that easy? I’m jealous.
I think I saw those on QVC yesterday.
Hmmm. Good for the A&M grad to snare a sweet designer deal with a SoHo boutique. Noice work if you can get it...lotsa bling in them thare bangles.
At the rate that she spends money on clothes,jewelry and vacations its a wonder they aren’t broke.
Couldn’t even have economized with the rhinestone version?
They aren’t even really kissing.
She is not even touching him.
It is just a weird picture.
What a pig, people can’t find work and she is wearing a years salary on each arm.
Mrs. Obama’s purchase provides a telling argument for raising taxes on rich people.
