In lieu of bells and whistles, Michelle Obama broke out bows and and crystals in the form of an exquisite Fenton-Fallon necklace for her appearance on a Fourth of July TV special that is airing on ABC on Friday.

Paired against a strapless metallic Calvin Klein Collection dress, this marks the second time that the First Lady has been seen in the bow bib stunner. Originally created for the Fall 2009 collection by designer Dana Lorenz, the multifaceted accessory - which is comprised of Swarovski crystals, brass and gunmetal biker chains, and hand dyed silk bows - made its first appearance when Mrs. O was dressed in her holiday finery on Glamour's December cover.

"She definitely owns that piece," Lorenz told StyleList. "She bought it at Ikram in Chicago and then Jenna Lyons from J.Crew really fell in love with it so we did a modified version."

Those wishing to purchase the Fenton-Fallon for J.Crew necklace can still do so for a limited time only via the retailer's website. Unlike the original, which is out of stock and costs $690, this one is still available through the end of July for $295.

The "America Celebrates 4th of July" special will honor South African Justice Albie Sachs and Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu with the 2010 Lincoln Medal.
