Angelina Jolie has announced that her luxury jewelry line, the Style of Jolie collection, will soon be available to U.S. consumers. Though no pricing information has been made available, it’s safe to assume that, since the collection includes one-of-a-kind baubles set with Colombian vivid green emeralds and a 186.42-carat pear-shaped citrine drop necklace, we’re not talking Zales dollars.
The good news – if you can afford to invest in a piece of the statement jewelry, you’ll know your money was well spent.
Jolie, who is a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador, will use the 100% of the profits to build schools overseas.
The actress designed the line with her longtime jeweler, Robert Procop, who created the diamond necklace she wore in The Tourist (pictured above). According to a statement from Procop’s reps, “Both Ms. Jolie and Mr. Procop have made the passionate commitment to donate 100% of the profits from the Style of Jolie collection to the The Education Partnership for Children of Conflict. The Partnership recently completed construction on an eight-classroom, two-story primary school in Afghanistan; plans for a second school are now being prepared.”
Jolie’s jewels will be available exclusively at Kansas City jeweler Tivol on April 3rd. Before now, Procop’s people say, the collection was sold only to “private clients.”
