Michelle Obama in Pearls for her Official White House Photo

By now, most of you may have seen the official White House Photo of Michelle Obama taken in the Blue Room of the White House in February of this year. It has sparked debate about whether she should have shown her arms. (Not going to go there - with all the other problems going on in the US right now, I have better things to worry about than whether a First Lady should show her arms or not.) Suffice to say, to me, she looks lovely.

Since this is a jewelry blog, what I would like to talk about is her love of pearls. I don't think anyone could argue about whether they are appropriate for an official White House photo. They compliment her black shift dress by Michael Kors just beautifully.

This is not the first time we've seen Michelle in pearls. At her first White House black tie dinner, she wore a huge statement neckace of pearls and crystals by Tom Binns.

The pearls she chose for the White House photo were much more understated and perfect for the occasion. I love how the simple double strand set sits perfectly at her neckline.

If you like Michelle's look, be sure to have a look a the pearl jewelry for sale in my three stores. (locations at the top right of this blog). I have designer pearl necklaces, single strands of pearls, lovely pearl double strand necklaces, and more all at very reasonable prices.
