Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have designed a collection of high-end, snake-themed jewelry called The Protector with Asprey, which will go on sale later this week. The line of silver and gold necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings, some of them covered with micropave diamonds in a variety of colors, are all shaped like coiling snakes, because Jolie says she was given a snake-shaped ring, not by Asprey, while she was pregnant with Shiloh, and she's since considered the snake to be a talisman and protector.
There are also some housewares involved, including a silver egg cup and tooth box, and a sterling silver baby spoon with a snake-shaped handle poised to strike at your baby for $525. That's the cheapest thing in the collection, but net proceeds from the line will go to Jolie's charity, Education Partnership for Children of Conflict.
