Skip to comments.Michelle Obama dazzles in New York, wearing diamond bangles by H-Town's Katie Decker ($42K cuffs)

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.
And he looks like he's kissing a 2X4. That's all the sugar he gets in White House? Damn, they're funny people.
LOL! That’s what I’m talking about.
They are kinda tacky.
Yeah, but 42K is about the median annual wage.
The national average wage index for 2009 is 40,711.61.
What an awkward hug!
can we say awkward?
The article doesn’t say if MO owns these or they are on loan to her. If she owns them the Obamas are sure living large.
Most likely the taxpayers paid for the bling in some backroom way.
Outside a StopNShop....
Yo, YO, bra.
I got a deal on some bling, hot ofrom a fundraiser
in NYC. Let you hav’m right.
Wait, look at that bling sparkle yo rib gonna love
you for this.
Ok, how much.
15,000 each or 40 for all three.
Whoa, no way man.
Ok, ok, 3000 each or 8 fro all.
Naah, can’t doit.
Ok, ok, last chance $35 each or all three for $90.
Ok giv me that one in the middle.
Yo, babe look what daddy bought yu.
OH, OH, OH, sweetie it must have cost a fortune!
Nah, well maybe a few thousand but you’r the one.
Oh, Oh, baby come here...
Re #11 — careful, I posted a pic like that once and got dinged by the mods.
But maybe the times they are a’changin’!
$35,000 per plate dinner.
Well, I really like the quatrefoil one - the others aren’t bad.
But this is such an in your face move that maybe they just don’t care anymore - a la Let Them Wear Diamonds. Michelle Antoinette for sure.
If only . . . his & hers, for the eviction perp walk
astounding, yet again this corrupt media are making it out she’s a cat walk model.
And kissing like that , no passion what so ever.
The question is why is she there on our tax money?
I like them. But Michelle thinks she’s Evita Peron rather than a servant of the people.
No one expects a first lady to be dowdy. But neither is she supposed to fun around flaunting thousands upon thousands of dollars worth of jewelry either, especially when the country is in the state it’s in.
Oh, what would have happened to Laura Bush, if she came out with such jewelry during a recession.
... because wearing only one wasn't ostentatious enough!
Egads. How many ways can FLOTUS says "FU, America"?
She likes cuffs, well alrighty then.
Got it, thanks.
I await the black caucus and black leaders to protest at how they are always dining while unemployment is sky high in their community
Old jessie and sharpton are waiting to get their order to march when a republican becomes president and then blame their bad economy on that.
Let them eat cake!
Soros probably got them back from his 28 yr old gf when they broke up in August and gave the castoffs to MooseChelle.
Where is iReggie when you need him. ;)
