By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

New York, NY – First Lady Michelle Obama selected jewelry from designer Loree Rodkin for four key moments during the recent inaugural celebrations: Election Night, The Inaugural Concert, Kids Inaugural Concert on The Disney Channel and The Inaugural Ball. All pieces worn by Michelle Obama to The Inaugural Ball will become part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Museum. It is fitting that Michelle Obama selected a female American based designer who attracts a clientele, which is strong, hard-working, feminine, independent, fearless and outspoken.

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