While Michelle Obama's keynote speech during the first night of the 2020 Democratic National Convention was certainly powerful on its own, the former first lady drove her point home with an understated accessory: a simple necklace that spelled out "vote" in gold letters on a delicate chain. As the former first lady discussed the importance of making a change in the upcoming election, the clear message behind her necklace prompted many to wonder where they could snag the chic piece for themselves.

It turns out Michelle's necklace during the speech is actually a custom version of the Original Spaced Letter Necklace from jewelry brand ByChari. She paired the elegant necklace with thin hoop earrings from the same brand, as well as a brown satin top from Nanushka. "I had created a VOTE necklace for the last election and knew I was going to do it again," said designer Chari Cuthbert. "As we started our outreach, I was honored when Michelle Obama's stylist asked for one, and am thrilled she is wearing it!" Ahead, shop the former first lady's exact necklace and personalize it for yourself, and watch her poignant speech in full.
