The brooch is a flowered style with pavé diamonds. It was custom made by the Italian jewelry company Garavelli and was purchased by the president as an anniversary gift.
For those with keen eyesight, one can also see the same pin, worn in a very different way, in her recent White House Christmas Special interview with Oprah Winfrey. The interview aired on ABC last Sunday, December 13, 2009. Michelle likes to take one design and wear it many ways and, this time, she added it to a double strand set of pearls for a completely different look.
