In this segment of our ongoing Michelle Obama fashion coverage: her earrings. Worn at the "We Are One" Inauguration Concert at Lincoln Memorial in DC this past Sunday. They're by Loree Rodkin
and are white gold and diamond quatrefoil in a chandelier design with lotus earwire and black diamond center. They retail for $17,313. Yes, that's right. She's married to a rock star, and as such is stepping up the accessorizing.
Rodkin's jewelrymaking style "blurs the line between modern and medieval" per her press materials.
