Wow, we never saw this one coming … Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have released a high-end jewelry capsule collection with Asprey consisting of gold jewelry and silver accessories called The Protector â€” and inspired by the snake.
She never ceases to amaze us with her thinking, always a touch of darkness going on … so why a serpent theme? When she was pregnant with their daughter Shiloh, Jolie was given a ring â€” not from Asprey â€” in the shape of a snake. Since then she\’s considered the reptile a talisman and protector of her family.
The limited edition collection, conceived and designed by Pitt and Jolie, has been in the works for more than a year, and will go on sale at Asprey stores in London, New York, Beverly Hills, Tokyo and Dubai later this week.
Prices start at $525 for a silver baby spoon and all net proceeds from sales will go to Education Partnership for Children of Conflict, which was cofounded by Jolie in 2006. The charity raises awareness and funds to educate child victims of war, conflict and natural disasters.
Jolie and Pitt declined to talk about their collection for Asprey, opting instead to discuss the aims of the charity in an e-mailed quote attributed to Jolie:
“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 â€” 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.”
It’s actually really really stylish and the snake looks protective rather than aggressive, very clever. And notice she’s used the Emeralds for their eyes, remember she wore those beautiful Emerald earrings at a red carpet event after Shiloh was born?
