Angelina and Brad Pitt – Jewelry Designers?

Hollywood’s hottest couple is putting their star power behind a new snake-inspired jewelry line. See all the slithering details.

Angelina Jolie’s huge emerald earrings at the Oscars were perhaps the most talked about jewelry statement of the year, but now she’s using jewelry to wow us in a different way. Jolie and hubby, Brad Pitt created a gold and silver jewelry line called The Protector for British jeweler, Asprey, according to Women’s Wear Daily. The collection is inspired by the snake, a symbol Jolie considers ‘the protector’ of her family.

The line includes diamond, black diamond and pave rings in addition to bracelets, earrings, men’s cuff links and dress studs with prices starting at $525. All net proceeds will go to Education Partnership for Children of Conflict, an organization co-founded by Jolie in 2006 that seeks to educate children who are victims of war, conflict and natural disasters.

“These 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,” Jolie said of her charity. “Yet the education for these children is often forgotten. Tens of millions of children and adolescents in conflict are not in school.”

The Protector line will go on sale this week in Asprey stores in London, New York, Beverly Hills, Tokyo and Dubai. For a closer look, visit the Jewelry.com Facebook page for a photo album showing more of the collection.

Reality competitions aren’t always about who’s got the cutest outfit or slogan.

Fashion Design Competition

In fact, some talented designers can actually get a hand up without a camera in sight. Some of New York’s undiscovered creatives are about to get the chance to be ‘branded’ for free – and we don’t mean with a burning iron.

Jack + Bill, a new pop-up advertising agency is about to hold an open casting call to find a ‘model, stylist, women’s apparel designer and jewelry designer’ who’ll each get a package of recognition.

The winners of each category will get some free branding, buzz building, media relations and viral marketing services for the months building up to the lead-up of New York’s September Fashion Week.

So if you’re convinced your jewels are simply ‘too fierce’ to be believed or your gems are better than the diamond rings seen on Lindsay Lohan, Nicole Kidman and other Hollywood hotties head over to New York’s Sandbox Studio on July 15 and 16 – you never know – you maybe the next biggest bling.
