Michelle Obama swaps her wedding ring for a platinum sparkler

First lady Michelle Obama was spotted at the inauguration ball without her wedding band, having replaced it with a huge platinum and diamond Art Deco-style dazzler.

Obviously taking note of Jennifer Lopez’s omission at the Latino Inaugural Gala earlier this week, it has been suggested that Michelle chose to leave her wedding band at home to avoid it clashing with the platinum sparkler.

Jennifer told Touch magazine that she had decided not to wear her Neil Lane wedding band because it did not go with her dress.

The first lady chose to wear the jewelry to match her white chiffon one-shoulder gown, designed by Jason Wu.

Meanwhile, Art Deco has been hailed as the latest trend in platinum jewelry.

Last month, reported that the style, which almost exclusively features platinum and diamonds, is still as popular as ever.

According to the website, the graphic looks and geometric lines of the style has made it as popular now as it was in the early 20th century.
