Worn by First Lady Dr. Jill Biden


It is an honor to see first lady Dr. Jill Biden and her beautiful daughter Ashley Biden in RUCHI New York earrings at the 2021 inaugural celebration.

The Biden’s commitment to building a united and all inclusive America brings a ray of new hope for the country.
Thank you First Lady, Dr. Jill Biden for your leadership and commitment to education, female empowerment and diversity.

We are truly inspired and feel grateful to be a part of this historic moment.

- Ruchi Kotahwala, Founder & Designer


Dr. Jill Biden wore the Mariposa Earrings, from our Desert Blooms Collection. The statement studs feature a floral silhouette set in white gold with chromatic blue sapphire slice petals outlined in diamonds with a gleaming diamond center. The design is inspired by iconic wildflowers that bloom in the California desert and symbolize enduring hope and overcoming adversity.

Echoing Dr. Biden’s dress by Gabriela Hearst embroidered with the federal flowers of every U.S. state and territory, the design symbolizes hope and unity.

Dr. Biden's daughter Ashley Biden wore Juniper Leaf Studs, a cluster earring featuring marquise shaped diamonds. The design is inspired by the vibrant energy of sprouting new leaves in nature.

Ruchi New York is creating a limited edition of the Desert Blooms Mariposa Earrings that Dr. Biden wore to the inaugural celebration. Each pair of earrings will be signed and numbered by Ruchi Kotahwala. They will be available on www.ruchinewyork.com and authorized retailers for pre-order. In honor of Dr. Biden’s commitment to education, a portion of all proceeds from these limited-edition earrings will benefit NAF, a national non-profit that provides career-focused education to high school students from underserved and under-resourced communities.
