Asprey has unveiled Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's latest foray into jewelry design. What do you think? Do these snake-inspired designs have you charmed?

I've got my eye on the tiny "Children's/Adult's Snake Rings," and I love the animated snake on the "Sterling Silver Tooth Box." While its function makes a whole lot of sense for the Jolie-Pitts and their young brood, I'd fill mine with some small pieces of jewelry.

Left: The "Fine Jewelled Rings" feature bright cabochon-emerald eyes, with jeweled "scales" that are smooth to the touch.

Center: The "Fine Jewelled Double Twist Bracelet" is a flexible but solid platinum bracelet depicting two intertwined snakes.

Right: The "Children's/Adult's Snake Earrings" feature 154 faceted gemstones. The "tail" is both a part of the design and a fitting to secure the earring.

Pendants       Rings
Left: The gemstone versions of the "Children's/Adult's Snake Pendants" feature 104 stones, while the gold version has been buffed to a smooth, polished surface.

Right: The tiny "Children's/Adult's Snake Rings" sparkle with fully faceted precious gemstones, as minute as 1 millimeter each, and set by hand.

Eggcup Toothbox     Spoon
Left: The cup and coiled snake of the "Sterling Silver Eggcup" were separately polished and then soldered together, before being hand polished as a final piece.

Center: A guilloche technique gives texture to the base of the "Sterling Silver Tooth Box," whose contents are protected by the snake on top.

Right: The handle of the "Sterling Silver Spoon" was carved in wax by Asprey's master model maker, and then molten sterling silver was poured into the mold to form a solid sculpture. The scales were then refined and hand chased. The spoon's bowl was hammered from a sheet of silver.
