Michelle Obama’s Engagement Ring

Now that we all know the outcome of the 2012 election, we at The Diamond Reserve, decided it would be appropriate to check out the First Lady’s engagement and wedding band.  Michelle Obama’s ring surprises many because it is relatively small compared to many other celebrity’s rings. Her ring is extremely classic, simple, and elegant, but we can’t help but notice it’s size.

The ring was reportedly given to Michelle after 3 years of dating by Barack at a restaurant in Chicago.  She has stated that she was preparing to break up with him because she felt he was unable to commit to the relationship, and then suddenly as desert arrived so did the delicate velvet ring box that contained a one-carat solitaire diamond ring.  Michelle was clearly ecstatic and they were married soon after.

Many people wonder why the first lady hasn’t decided to upgrade her ring, especially with the recent elevation in income for her family, and it simply seems to be that she is extremely sentimental.  The ring holds such profound and honest meaning to her, that it doesn’t matter what size, cut, or color it is.  This is the most important thing to remember if you are looking to purchase or receive a diamond ring, it is not about the amount of money you spend on the ring, it is the thought behind it.  There are several other celebrities who have been criticized for having small rings, but when we examine the relationships that have held strong, they tend to be the ones that didn’t need a huge ring to announce to the world their love, they tend to be the couples who invested in the relationship with a ring of love rather than money.

The Diamond Reserve has a wide rang of diamond rings and loose diamonds, so no matter what your budget is, or what you might be looking for, we can help you find the perfect ring.
