Earlier today, London jeweler Asprey announced a new jewelry collection created in cooperation with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. The Protector Collection features a limited number of karat gold, platinum, and gem-studded jewelry, as well as sterling gifts (including a child’s tooth box), all bearing snake motifs-considered a symbol of protection admired by Jolie. Net proceeds will be donated to the Education Partnership For Children of Conflict, a charity close to the hearts of the Jolie-Pitts, according to a release from Asprey. Pieces are handcrafted in the jeweler’s London flagship store, and each silver piece carries five quality hallmarks applied by the London Assay Office.
According to an article online today, prices for the silver gifts start at $525, and will go on sale at Asprey stores in London, New York, Beverly Hills, Tokyo and Dubai as of November 17. The Collection can be viewed online at www.asprey.com.
