When you think of actresses-turned-designers Angelina Jolie’s name is not the first one that comes to mind. The Olsens? Sure. Emma Watson? That makes sense. But Jolie? Being Brad Pitt’s partner, mother of an ever-expanding rainbow brood and her work as a U.N. ambassador stand out over her style (not that she doesn’t look chic in those black drapey dresses).
Nevertheless, Jolie is designing a jewelry line, WWD is reporting. The Tourist actress has teamed up with former Asprey CEO Robert Procop to create a line of statement jewelry.
“These are pieces [Jolie] wears herself,” Procop told WWD of the collection, which includes “a pebble-size, pale green 353-carat beryl pendant, in a rose gold setting and worn on a chain of cushion shape beryl stones, and a graphic, tablet-shape 12.02-carat vivid green emerald ring set in rose gold.” Jolie was reportedly inspired by “ancient tablet engravings” when she designed the ring (she designed a similar piece for Pitt).
The collection will be sold privately through Procop’s “network of clients,” which seems to be code for really, really expensive. Of course, this being Saint Angelina, all proceeds from the line will go to her charity, the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict.
It’s not the first time Jolie has dabbled in jewelry design. She and Pitt designed a capsule collection with Asprey last year, and proceeds from that collection went to benefit Jolie’s charity as well.
