On January 20, 2021, Kamala Harris was inaugurated as the first woman, first Black person, and first South Asian American Vice President in the history of the United States. To mark the momentous occasion, women across the country marked the occasion by wearing their pearl jewelry. Why? Because Kamla often accessorizes with pearl jewelry to finish her look.
And on this momentous day, Kamla wasn’t the only one decked out in pearl jewelry. Kamla wore a stunning necklace designed by Wilfredo Rosado, with Dr. Jill Bidon, First Lady, wearing a necklace by Markarian’s Alexandra O’Neill.
But Dr. Biden and Vice President Harris weren’t the only two wearing pearls. Performer Jennifer Lopez was dripping in beautiful Chanel pearls. And while Lady Gaga wasn’t in pearls, I think her dove brooch is simply stunning. Overall, the inauguration brought great fashion and decadent jewelry that held a lot of meaning.
