Michelle Obama wore over $42,000 of diamond bracelets to a DNC fundraiser in New York while accompanying her husband on Tuesday night.
The First Lady wore three bracelets totaling almost 10 carats of diamonds to introduce her husband at the dinner fundraiser.
Designed by 23-year-old jeweler Katie Decker, Michelle Obama wore the 2.9 carat Lotus cuff priced at $15,000, the 2.17 carat Gothic cuff at $15,350 and the 1.73 carat Quatrefoil bracelet at $11,800.
But pull back your class warfare swords, the bracelets were borrowed on a loan for the Democratic National Committee fundraiser at Gotham Hall. According to Culturemap.com, Michelle Obama's stylist picked up the bracelets from Decker's showroom in Soho before the event.
President Barack Obama was reportedly in New York to address the United Nations General Assembly at the U.N. headquarters on Wednesday. Michelle also attended the address, sans jewels.
The bling not only caught the attention of attendees, as Michelle Obama's wrists sparkled as she introduced the President to the DNC dinner fundraiser, but was the subject of attacks from conservatives.
