The Exquisite Antique Diamonf "Elise" Choker (Estimate: HK$ 4,000,000 6,000,000 / US$ 520,000 770,000) was worn by Angelina Jolie in the film The Tourist in 2010. Of openwork foliage scroll design, set with intertwining wreaths of diamond-set laurel leaves and accented by six oscillating old-cut diamonds, which was a superlative example of the Garland Style greatly prized during the early twentieth century, the necklace is gorgeous, elegant whilst of great magnificence. To find a memorable piece for Angelina Jolies character Elise in The Tourist, the famous Jeweller Robert Procop searched far and wide across the globe and ultimately got this artwork.
Another Jolies jewellery, a 9.17-ct. cushion-shaped Emerald Ring (Estimate: HK$ 1,000,000 1,500,000 / US$ 130,000 200,000) signed Jolie RP is of simply bezel-set, designed by Angelina Jolie in collaboration with Robert Procop. The vivid colour, dramatic faceting and surpassing clarity of the emerald are extraordinarily impressive. By making the gemstone the main focus of the design, its simplicity becomes timeless. This ring was worn by Angelina Jolie for the premiere of Kung Fu Panda 2 at the Cannes Film Festival in France in 2011.
