Brad and Ange turn star jewellers

The Protector range
The jewellery range designed by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

Hollywood couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have designed their own jewellery collection for charity.

The Protector range includes gold and silver accessories that all feature snakes. The animal is considered to be a symbol of protection.

Jolie was inspired after being given a snake ring during her first pregnancy with daughter Shiloh.

All proceeds will be donated to the Education Partnership For Children of Conflict charity.

Jolie co-founded the organisation in 2006 to raise money for educating child victims of war, conflict and natural disasters.

Prices for the jewellery range start at $525 (£312) for a silver spoon with a snaked-shaped handle.

The range also includes pendants, bracelets, rings and an egg cup.

The limited edition items, which took the couple two years of work, have been designed for the British jeweller Asprey.

In June, Jolie was named the most powerful celebrity in the world by Forbes magazine.

Since the couple announced their first pregnancy in 2006, they have been heavily involved in charitable work.
