It appears that I'm in the minority about loving Brad and Angelina's foray into jewelry design. Specifically, their line with Asprey called "The Protector", which is a serpent-based design. Okay, maybe the baby spoon is, well, unusual, but the rest of the line is GORGEOUS. Stunning--I'd wear a piece of the line in a heartbeat. I adore pave` diamonds and the rings and bracelets are just so cool and elegant.
"Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are adding another job to their resume: jewelry designer.
The couple are creating a high-end line with Asprey called "The Protector." The baubles will consist of diamond, black diamond and emerald pavé rings, bracelets, earrings, men's cuff links, and dress studs -- in the shape of snakes.
Why the serpent theme? According to Women's Wear Daily, Jolie was given a snake ring designed by a different jeweler while pregnant with Shiloh, now 3, and considers them to be the "protector of her family.
All of the proceeds will be donated to the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict, which was co-founded by Jolie in 2006. The charity raises awareness and money to help educate child victims of war, conflict and natural disasters.
Says Jolie in a statement, "These are the children who most need a safe place to learn, a place to heal, a place to learn reconciliation, a place to build a better future and a place -- to just be children. Yet the education for these children is often forgotten. Tens of millions of children and adolescents in conflict are not in school."
Am I alone in loving these pieces?
