Michelle Obama's Inauguration Day Diamond Jewelry

Fashion-forward First Lady Michelle Obama wore an impressive array of diamond jewelry throughout the inaugural festivities. For the "We Are One" concert on Sunday at the Lincoln Memorial, she complemented her Narcisco Rodriguez outfit with a pair of dangling diamond earrings. The $17,000 diamond earrings are the creation of diamond jewelry designer Loree Rodkin, who also supplied the First Lady with her election night diamond jewelry.

For the inauguration ceremony itself, Mrs. Obama wore a gold-hued dress by Cuban-born designer Isabel Toledo. The First Lady accessorized the outfit with a diamond brooch and a pair of elegant diamond studs.

Later in the evening, Barack and Michelle Obama attended the glamorous inauguration balls. At the Neighborhood Ball, the Obamas shared their first dance as President and First Lady as Beyonce sang the Etta James song “At Last.” The First Lady, who looked stunning in an ivory silk chiffon gown (by Taiwanese designer Jason Wu) was decked out in diamond jewelry - a diamond ring, diamond bangles, and diamond drop earrings. All the pieces were designed by Loree Rodkin.

Mrs. Obama was first introduced to the diamond jewelry brand through Chicago's premier luxury boutique Ikram, where she has been a longstanding client.

"It's a privilege to be a part of history. Today the country has new hope," stated Loree Rodkin. "The First Lady is a symbol of hope, courage and great style. I am honored that she has chosen my jewelry. Words cannot describe the emotions I feel that Michelle Obama has allowed me to be a part of this glorious moment."
