LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are designing a collection of snake-inspired gold and silver jewelry and accessories with Asprey, and according to company officials and Women's Wear Daily, the line will go on sale at Asprey stores later this week.
The aptly titled limited edition "Protector" collection was in the works for more than a year, and all net proceeds from sales will go to Education Partnership for Children of Conflict, which Jolie co-founded in 2006. As you may recall, the charity raises awareness and money to help and educate child victims of war, conflict and natural disasters.
So why the snake? According to WWD, Angelina was given a snake ring while she was pregnant with Shiloh, and she considers the serpent to be a protector of her family.
Prices start at $525, and though Brangelina wouldn't comment on the collection itself, they did discuss the goals of the charity, saying, â€œThese 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.â€
