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.

In primitive cultures it’s accepted to wear gold and jewels.
I don’t care.
Shiny objects ... ?
The IRS rule for public officials is that gifts - including LOANS - of items that benefit the designer or the public official requires payment of taxes by the public official on those items. The IRS came down hard on Ronald and Nancy Reagan over some of Nancy’s dresses that were loaned to her.
wheredja get that foto?
i like them too, but would never spend that
kind of money on jewelry. i think michelle
borrowed them for occasion. that being said,
i wonder why it is ok for her to borrow jewelry
to wear, and the msm went nuts when nancy
reagan borrowed dresses from designers.
hillary clinton just outright took high end
stuff as gifts. clinton gave leftovers to
a decidedly down-market Marie Antoinette
There is no warmth to that kiss at all. They can’t stand each other, can they?
I wonder how much more reparations they think they’re entitled to.
Nice to see you never stereotype...
I believe I borrowed it from another FReeper. :)
Yes, it’s a very weird picture. Especially if you look at his hands - they look more like they are pushing someone away than embracing her.
Is there no warmth in their lives ever?
The rest of us need to enjoy our peas.
This is just another kind of welfare - she’s mooching off the American taxpayer and her days of doing that are numbered.
Michelle Obama “Let them eat cake......sugar free....”
But they have absolutely no business being on the wrists of the First Lady in the midst of the economic disaster her husband has inflicted on this country. She must think she's Imelda Antoinette.
Is that supposed to be a hug & a kiss? 0dumb0 & phat ass butt ugly mabelle michelle look like they don’t want to catch each other’s cooties. Now if it was a guy, 0dumb0 would be lip locked with him....hard to say about phat ass’s preferences.
