Angelina Jewelry-Pitt: Jolie's Baubles Going on Display
May 30, 2012 - by Lester Brathwaite
She's an Oscar-winning actress, famed maneater, charitable powerhouse and a tabloid staple. But enough about Elizabeth Taylor. Angelina Jolie, however, is following in the legendary Liz's footsteps by putting her jewels on display.
Jeweler Robert Procop, who helped Brad Pitt create Angie's engagement ring, will bring his collaboration with the actress, Style by Jolie, to the South of France this summer.
There, from July 15 through August 15, the Jolie jewels will be showcased during two concurrent pop-ups; one at the Grand Hotel in Cap Ferrat and the other at the Hotel de Paris in Monaco. Les Jolie-Pitts are expected to make an appearance.
The limited edition Style by Jolie collection was launched in 2010 and is usually sold through private appointment only, but Procop plans on opening select boutiques this September in countries including the US, Russia and China.
Naturally, this wouldn't be a Jolie-Pitt affair without some charitable angle -- geez, we get it! -- and all proceeds from Style by Jolie go toward Education Partnership for Children of Conflict, Jolie's foundation which has just finished building a school in Afghanistan. [WWD]
