After almost 20 years as a niche jewelry designer, it seems Kara Ross has been called up to the major leagues — thanks to prime placement on Michelle Obama’s earlobes.
The First Lady was first photographed wearing Kara Ross earrings on Nov. 26 while receiving the White House Christmas tree. Since then, she’s been spotted in Kara Ross designs six times, including at Tuesday night’s State of the Union Address by President Obama. The earrings and bracelets Obama has worn all hail from Ross’ Gemstone collection, which was inspired by Frank Gehry’s Hearst Tower in Manhattan.
