If you haven’t decided what to buy this Christmas, you can consider the following jewelry pieces designed with dedication, inspiration and care by big names and artistic personalities.
More, some of these particular jewelry pieces were invested with a special charity power: Alicia Keys did a necklace for Keep A Child Alive and Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s Asprey Snakes proceeds turn to Education Partnership for Children of Conflict. (the story continues right after the jump with more images! Click here to see the gallery)
Alicia Keys designed a special double tag necklace, part of her jewelry collection The Barber’s Daughters. The tags are engraved with (one) a Ghandi quote (“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others”) and the other (by demand, with no extra costs) with a name and a birth date. The necklace is available for $295 from which $100 goes to Keep A Child Alive.
If you love bugs, you’ll instantly fall for Michelle Trachtenberg’s Coach Poppy collection! With prices from $78 to $128, the preview of the collection that looks more stuffed than a summer salad (avec bug) is hilariously described as “refined-romantic with attitude, bringing a punky look to a lush mix of materials and inspirations”. That’s because they didn’t know French and they took the long English road to “n’importe quoi” (appx “whatever”, see more here)
(Let us not forget to keep up with the Kardashians! They too have a jewelry line ready for the stores. And this one is “romantic, edgy, and classic vintage”. That too is the long for “n’importe quoi” only in Armenian English. Launching in April 2010 with Virgins Saints and Angels, the collection looks spikey and blingy. And if you celebrate Christmas in April, you’d better get a Kardashian jewelry piece en cadeau!)
Now getting back to the main focus of this last minute Christmas shopping spree: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s Asprey snakes. Jewelry. Back on the BAFTA Awards Red Carpet, Angelina was breathtakingly beautiful complimenting her Armani trademark black with snake jewelry. The pieces were actually designed by the celeb glam couple because Angelina feels the snakes as a protector of her family (?). The weird belief roots in her Shiloh pregnancy days when she received a snake shaped ring (non-Asprey).
The Asprey Protector Collection is declined in various shapes: silver baby spoons, rings, earrings, bracelets. If you’re ready to buy your baby a $525 silver baby snake spoon, Asprey by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt is the name for you! Of course, one could always think about Angelina’s Alexander performance and feel the chills down the spine when seeing her act with snakes. (that’s when she officially declared her love for snakes) Do you think diamond paved snakes would be more successful than Alexander’s snakes on film? (via 1, 2, 3, 4)
