Bling with a bite from Brangelina

Just in time for the holidays Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have designed a collection of high-end jewelry featuring snakes and lots of diamonds.

Items start at $535 and include serpent cuffs, serpent pendants, serpent rings, serpent cuff links and even a baby-spoon with a serpent-shaped handle. The Brangelina inspired bling will be available at Asprey stores starting later this week.

So why snakes? According to Women's Wear Daily, Jolie received a ring in the shape of a snake when she was pregnant with Shiloh. The actress has since considered the reptile a talisman and protector of her family.

All proceeds from sales will go to the charity Education Partnership for Children of Conflict, a non-profit co-founded by Jolie that works to educate children affected by war or natural disasters.

No word yet on whether the collection includes serpent-inspired beard beads.

I choose to believe the real inspiration for this line was the movie "Snakes on a Plane." Oddly, the motif would work quite well if done in beard beads. Or as well as beard beads can ever work.

I beleive the tat on Angie's shoulder says, "If found, drop in nearest US Mail box. Return postage guaranteed."

And the diamonds are from "conflict free" sources? Seriously, the whole process of verifying that nobody has been mutilated or risked their lives for the diamond trade is quite flimsy. For someone who promotes a platform for caring for children of the world, I can't see how she can do this by selling diamonds.

What? No serpentine belt? I'll have to make do with an OEM serpentine belt. My car will be disappointed.

Oooh! I really like these- beautiful and unusual. I'm not sure about the baby spoon, but the design is lovely.

"The actress has since considered the reptile a talisman and protector of her family."

Snakes protect her family -- I assume we mean Brad and the kids here and not her Mom and Dad -- from what? A sense of social propriety? Any kind of sensible discretion? Media overexposure? Help me out here.

Very nice Tungsten Rings

Tungsten carbide is the hardest metal on the market used to make wedding rings. A tungsten ring is ten times harder than 18k gold, five times harder than steel, and four times harder than titanium. Our tungsten carbide wedding bands are virtually scratch-resistant, so unlike other metals that show signs of wear with age, your wedding ring's finish will always look new. For this reason, our tungsten wedding bands are gaining attention as an affordable choice for the practical and stylish man or woman. Enjoy the long-lasting shine in several attractive designs.
