The latest celeb-turned-designer? It’s Angelina Jolie.
Jolie has just launched her own high-end jewelry line “Style of Jolie,” co-created with Beverly Hills-based jeweler Robert Procop, E! Online is reporting. Procop, you’ll remember, is the same jeweler Brad Pitt worked with to design Jolie’s engagement ring.
Of course, with human rights activist Jolie, there’s more to it than a passing interest in design. The Oscar-winning actress and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees ambassador just opened an all-girls school in Afghanistan–and she’s planning to open more with the profits from Style of Jolie.
On his site, Procop confirms that 100 percent of the profits from the jewelry line will go to the Education Partnership for Children in Conflict.
On his website, Procop expounds on the collection:
As Angelina herself possesses many talents and dimension, these jewels mirror that depth with a spectrum of delights. At one end are the sensuous, rounded curves of the cushion and sumptuous pear-shaped pendants that conjure the archetype of the eternal feminine. Other jewels resonate with a bolder aesthetic via sharp, dramatic lines. Yet a unified aesthetic remains: richly saturated, monochromatic gemstones are sculpted and cradled in a rich array of golds. Every treasure echoes the potent appeal of a woman’s timeless allure.
The emerald tablet rings and bracelets were inspired by a unique design Jolie created for a necklace she gifted to man-friend Brad Pitt.
The line launches today and will be available exclusively at Tivol, a Kansas City, Missouri jeweler. According to E!, Jolie chose to partner up with the jeweler for its “historic reputation and dedication to family values.”
“Beyond enjoying the artistic satisfaction of designing these jewels, we are inspired by knowing our work is also serving the mutual goal of providing for children in need,” Jolie said.
Check out some of the pieces from the line in the gallery below.
