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.

Nothing but the best for the Queen of Amerika.
I’ve seen models in catalogues that show more affection in their pics than you can see in this one of Prezbo and his wife.
Unbelievable. Thanks for the ping.
Being unable to decide on one piece of jewelry is a sign of immaturity ... rather like a 9-year-old with 16 “Silly Bandz” on at once.
I’m just wondering, because gifts received are not personal property they belong to the citizens of this nation. they should be put in the presidential library, as tacky as they are.
That’s wrong on so many levels.....and prejudicial against dentists!
it is a threesome. Zero, Mo and the tele.
Poll: Obama slips with black voters
I’m pretty much out of the pepper industry for a while, I have a life time supply plus, in a full one gallon jar.
I’m a pickle packer now, I made and gave away 80-90 quarts of my already famous Bread&Butter pickles this year, mostly to my fellow church members. There’s talk of beatification in my church and I don’t discourage it, even though Baptists don’t beatify.
Hat tip to “JustaDumbBlonde” for the recipe.
President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama walk down the stairs from Air Force One upon arrival at Andrews Air Force Base, Md. , Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2011.
I don't think I've made much of a dent in my lifetime supply of habanero flakes.
In my humble opinion we cannot afford another four years with Moocheele as the First Lady. Kick them both out!
Way to go Maggie! Thanks to Matt for linking it.
Wow... For the cost of those three bracelets Michelle could have feed several families for a whole year! Her bracelets alone are only 7 grand shy of the median income over the last year for households in state of Wisconsin! And yes, her bracelets cost MORE than my husband made ALL YEAR last year! I don’t care if she spent her own money on them - that’s her right. Just pointing out yet again what a hypocrite she is...
They NEVER look comfortable kissing... He looked more comfortable kissing Hillary in the pic I saw the other day!
Remember when they used to castigate Nancy Reagan for borrowing designer fashions from couturiers? They wanter to pay tax for the use.
