Last night at the virtual 2020 Democratic National Convention, former First Lady Michelle Obama gave a powerful speech on the importance of voting all while sporting a simple gold necklace that spelled “V-O-T-E,” which the internet is now obsessed with.
During the speech, people took to Twitter asking former vice president and presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s campaign to sell them and wondering where they could get the bling for themselves. Needless to say, people want one for themselves.
The bold statement necklace is a piece from ByChari, a Black-owned jewelry brand. The dainty letter chain necklace costs $295 and is available in gold, rose gold, and silver. Founder Chari Cuthbert said in a tweet that “the response has been incredible and I am beyond honored and humbled that Michelle Obama wore my design.”
Other “vote” necklaces you can buy
While the ByChari necklace could be pricey for some, you can order a similar custom-made necklace with the letters V-O-T-E from Etsy for around $50, though the materials may not be the same quality as Obama’s chain.
Want to encourage voting with a different style of bling? This “VOTE” engraved 24k gold coated chain necklace has positive reviews from over 150 buyers on Etsy, while others prefer this simple hand-stamped vote necklace.
The Vote Necklace from Uncommon Goods has a 4.9-star rating and celebrates women’s suffrage with the female gender symbol replacing the “O” in “vote.” Another popular vote necklace is this one from Larissa Loden with silver rhodium-plated letters dangling from a matching chain.
