  • Angelina Jolie ~ An Absolute Jewel

    In 2006, Angelina Jolie founded the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict.  She has recently teamed up with Beverly Hills-based Jeweller, Robert Procop to start the Angelina Jolie Jewellery Charity fund to support her extensive work to improve the lives of children living in poverty around the world.

     

    The Style of Jolie is a jewellery collection for people who not only admire and covet beautiful jewellery but who also have social conscience as far as helping children who have very little in their lives.

     “The evolutionary process for these designs was captured by the use of storyboards chronicling the creative journey we took of exploring different shapes and inspiring us toward sharp dramatic lines and soft curves,” says Procop. “The selection of a tablet shape gem was initially based on the idea of engraving a stone with a message and from there it evolved into shapes that echo that symbolism.”

    With emeralds the main focus of the collection, the gems used in the designer jewellery are the most important aspect.

     

    “We selected only the finest gems using Colombian-sourced emeralds of the highest quality,” comments Procop. “By making the gemstone the main focus of the design, we feel the simplicity of each piece becomes timeless. When you look at it, you recognize it as The Style of Jolie.”

    The sale of this exquisite jewellery is not only bringing pleasure to the wearer.  Recently the project funded a two-storey all girls school-house in the Qala-i-Gudar region of Afghanistan.  There are plans for a second school in a to be selected location, each school funded by proceeds from 'The Style of Jolie.'

  • MY Diamonds presents favourite jewellery from Royal Families Around the World

    Bearing in mind we have a new Prince of Cambridge we thought it would be a good idea to begin this segment of posts with The Cambridge Emeralds.

    Surprisingly, the tiara was won in a charity lottery in 1818 by Queen Mary's grandmother, Augusta, the then Duchess of Cambridge.

     

    The Vladimir Circle Tiara was adapted with fifteen emerald drops.Other pieces in the collection included two emerald drop brooches.

     

    The "Cambridge and Delhi Dunbar Parure"  refers to a complete suite of emerald jewelry, which also included an emerald and diamond tiara. The suite now belongs to the personal jewelry collection of Queen Elizabeth II, which she inherited from her grandmother Queen Mary, the Queen consort of King George V. The "Cambridge and Delhi Dunbar Parure" was designed and crafted by the crown jewellers, in anticipation of the coronation of King George V and Queen Mary on June 22, 1911, and their subsequent proclamation as the Emperor and Empress of India, at a special Durbar organized for this purpose in Delhi, on December 12, 1911.

    The name Cambridge was derived from the Duke of Cambridge, Adolphus, the seventh son of King George III, who together with his wife Princess Augusta of Hesse, were the original owners of the magnificent emeralds that were incorporated in different pieces of the "parure". At least two of the pieces in the "parure", an emerald necklace and an emerald brooch were presented by the wives of the Maharajah's of India, the Maharanis, including the Maharani of Patiala. Thus the name "Delhi Dunbar Parure" seem to have been inspired for two reasons, one, the parure being specially designed and executed  in anticipation of the Delhi Durbar and two, some of the pieces in the parure were received as gifts by Queen Mary during the durbar.
