Jewels By Branjelina?

I've never been a big fan Angelina Jolie. Undoubtedly she's gorgeous and yeah she wants to save the world, but I'm more "team jenn". As for Brad Pitt, I guess he's hunky but I'd take Matthew McConaughey over him any day. Still there is no denying that Brangelina is a power couple with big things on their horizon. One of those things is their new venture in high-end jewelry design with Asprey via a capsule collection of gold jewelry and silver accessories called The Protector — and inspired by the snake. It's a shame that the collection won't have any striking green emeralds similar to what she wore to the Oscars.

The limited edition collection, which was conceived and designed by Pitt and Jolie, has been in the works for more than a year, and will go on sale at Asprey stores in London, New York, Beverly Hills, Tokyo and Dubai later this week, according to Asprey officials.

Prices start at $525 for a silver baby spoon with a curving, serpent-shaped handle, and all net proceeds from sales will go to Education Partnership for Children of Conflict, which was cofounded by Jolie in 2006. The charity raises awareness and funds to educate child victims of war, conflict and natural disasters.

Ummm, what the heck is with the serpent theme? When she was pregnant with their daughter Shiloh, Jolie was given a ring, in the shape of a snake. Since then she’s considered the reptile a talisman and protector of her family.

I wonder if they are doing a "high-end" version of a necklace with a blood filled vile on it?
