Our partner offices, Kazanjian Brothers Inc., were having their Christmas party last night so I stopped in for a little glass of champagne. Next door to KBI, Bob Procop, jeweler to the rich and famous and formally head of Asprey and of Garrard recently opened his new office. Not only has Bob has been working with Angelina Jolie on developing a new line of jewelry to benefit her charity, he provided jewelry for her new film 'The Tourist", including the magnificent antique Edwardian diamond collar necklace.
And guess who just had to try on the beautiful diamond collar for herself, channelling her inner Angelina. Yes, it definitely was my kind of jewelry...
hint, hint, hint...to anyone looking to spend more than $1 million on my Xmas gift...
I was loath to take it off and give it back to Bob...but the jewelry that I had been wearing, chocolate and white south sea pearl necklace, bracelet and earrings in rose and white gold, actually went better with my heather brown Michael Kors sweater and pencil skirt.
To add to my story, yesterday afternoon I had to run an errand and as I was waiting to cross Wilshire Boulevard, the most exquisite brunette driving a Range Rover was stopped at the red light in front of me. It had to be Angelina Jolie...or her doppelganger. She was so beautiful. I've seen her before in Beverly Hills, and she is truly stunning.
For the record, in case you hadn't guessed, I'm on team Angelina because that woman can do everything... and she can save orphan children. Talk about a multitasker!
I can't wait to see her new movie.
