FORMER First Lady Michelle Obama made her message loud, clear and fashionable during her speech at the Democratic National Convention Monday by rocking a gold "VOTE" necklace.
The stylish piece was the top trending Google search during Obama's speech in the final hour of the first night of the DNC, according to CNN.
The necklace was reportedly custom-made for Obama by Los Angeles-based jeweler BYCHARI, a company started by designer Chari Cuthbert in 2012. However, a similiar style is available on the company's website for $295.
The piece is available in yellow, white and rose.
Ever known for her fashion statements, Obama's necklace was a trendy way to add to her overall bottom line: just how important it is for Americans to get out and vote in the 2020 election, despite obstacles the coronavirus pandemic may present.
"We have got to vote like we did in 2008 and 2012," Obama said during her pre-taped address for the convention.
"We've got to show up with the same level of passion and hope for Joe Biden. We've got to vote early, in person if we can."
"We're got to request our mail-in ballots right now, tonight, and send them back immediately and follow-up to make sure they're received. And then, make sure our friends and families do the same," she said.
Much of Obama's 20-minute speech focused on how President Donald Trump has proven over the past four years that he is "wrong president for our country."
"He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head. He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us."
Trump hit back at the former first lady with a series of tweets Tuesday morning, calling her endorsement for Joe Biden "unenthusiastic," and calling her husband's administration "the most corrupt in history."
"The ObamaBiden Administration was the most corrupt in history, including the fact that they got caught SPYING ON MY CAMPAIGN, the biggest political scandal in the history of our Country," Trump wrote.
"It's called Treason, and more. Thanks for the very kind words Michelle!"
Obama's speech closed out a night of impassioned pleas from Democrats like Vermont Sen Bernie Sanders and New York Gov Andrew Cuomo for the American public to get behind Biden.
The DNC will run every night through Thursday, when Biden is expected to formally accept the Democratic nomination for the 2020 presidential election.
