One year ago today, former first lady Michelle Obama debuted our VOTE necklace during her 2020 DNC speech.

Not only was it the honor of a lifetime to have Mrs. Obama wear my necklace, but it was a privilege to contribute to the initiatives behind "When We All Vote." I want to personally thank all of you for working with me and the BYCHARI team to help create positive change around the stigmas of voting alongside one of the most influential women of our generation.


The VOTE necklace is available in fine 14K Yellow, Rose, and White Gold in Small, Large, or Diamond Letters and in Sterling Silver.

Pick your style and say your piece!

And to @michelleobama, I was fortunate enough to witness my wildest dreams come true. Gratitude, pride, and a sense of fulfilled purpose overflowed my heart in the moments I watched you wearing my necklaces as you addressed millions worldwide. One year later your tenacity, grace, and empowerment inspired me to create this necklace, and together, we have emboldened individuals worldwide to use their voices and vote for change they wish to see in the world.

Thank you for spearheading this incredible movement, and allowing me the opportunity to express my love and support for you through my passion for jewelry.


All my love,
