Known for their custom jewels, Charles Schwartz and Son has also created the 2009 Inaugural Ball jewelry collection. Spelling the name of our president elect in diamonds and available as both a brooch and necklace, the piece is available as a 2.53 carat or a 4.58 carat piece.
“The collection came about when a client and prominent Obama fundraiser, came to us with the request for a special piece to wear on her Inaugural ball gown,” explains Paul Pastor, President of Charles Schwarz and Son Jewelers. “She was looking for a keepsake that would show her support, and with our Willard Hotel store located just steps from the White House, we thought we should make this and our charms available to all to honor this monumental occasion.”
The Inaugural Ball collection ranges from $4,500 to $10,000 and is available at both locations via custom order.
