There will be an event held May 10 – 13 at the Palexpo convention center in Geneva where you have the chance to look at Style of Jolie jewels, including the new jewelry which Angelina and Zahara designed together. We will have to wait and see if Angelina might attend the event one of the days!

A new fair with a focus on rare gems, vintage jewels and works of contemporary jewelry designers is set to open for the trade and more importantly for the general public. So far the organizers seem to be doing all the right things.

Called, GemGenève, the fair will be held May 10 – 13 at the Palexpo convention center in Geneva. The timing of the fair coincides with the spring jewelry and watch auctions hosted by Sotheby’s, Christie’s and Phillips.

The fair was founded by two veteran dealers, Thomas Faerber and Ronny Totah, both owners of multi-generational family firms bearing their names that specialize in rare gems and antique jewels. The focus of the show is to provide a platform for small- and medium-size firms that specialize in high-quality gems and jewels.

Angelina Wows Viewers as She Expertly Pilots a Plane Over Namibia

Angelina Wows Viewers as She Expertly Pilots a Plane Over Namibia

Just a nice article by People magazine about Angelina and her part in The Queen’s Green Planet and how people have reacted to Angie being a talented pilot 🙂

Angelina Jolie is going to great heights for her latest conservationist project.

The actress, environmentalist and all-around Renaissance woman, 42, impressed fans around the world this week when she was filmed nonchalantly piloting and landing a small plane over the Namibian desert in the ITV special The Queen’s Green Planet.

For the new documentary, which she appeared in with Queen Elizabeth and Sir David Attenborough, Jolie spent time in the African nation highlighting forest conservation.

“For us to come here and say to the children, ‘This is why it’s important to plant a tree,’ that’s the biggest message I can teach my kids, and it’s something that they’ve certainly learned from Her Majesty and her message,” the Oscar winner explained in the documentary, which aired April 16.

In addition to the documentary’s positive message, fans were blown away by Jolie’s piloting skills.

“What even is this show?! Attenborough, The Queen, and now Angelina Jolie just casually flying a plane. Is there anything she can’t do?” one fan tweeted.

“Angelina Jolie is flying a plane over the desert nonchalantly. Is there anything this woman can’t do??” another echoed.

“Congratulations to Angelina Jolie being able to fly plane without even looking were she is going!!! Literally UNBELIVABLE!!!” U.K. television presenter Stephen Mulhern wrote.

Jolie got her pilot’s license in December 2004, saying that her son Maddox inspired her, PEOPLE reported at the time. “If I could actually fly a plane by the time he’s 4, I’ll be like Superman to him.”

How Do You Manage Your Angelina Jolie Movie Collection

How Do You Manage Your Angelina Jolie Movie Collection?
Angelina Jolie now has a very big collection of movie appearances, including both blockbuster mega-hits that have gone on to become classics, and more obscure movies from earlier in her career.

Naturally, a lot of fans like to collect the movies Angelina has been in, and this means managing what can amount to quite a large collection!

Blu-Ray and DVD
While a lot of people prefer to watch the movies that they see on streaming services these days, or by buying digital copies through things like iTunes, there is still a strong collector market for DVD and Blu-Ray. When you collect the physical discs of the movies, you also get all of the bonus materials that are added on, which for fans of an actor can mean exclusive interviews. It can also mean you get new ways of watching the movie, for example having a commentary by the director or writers that can allow you to re-watch the movie from a new perspective and learn more about how it was made. Indeed, studios do a lot to ensure that discs are still a good product that adds value to customers over watching the movie online, so a lot of Angelina Jolie fans still stick to buying her movies on Blu-Ray and DVD and getting limited editions where possible.

Protecting a Physical Movie Collection
When you collect movies on disc, you also get all of the cover art and are able to display your collection at home, which is another bonus. However, DVD collections, especially where they include collector’s editions, can become valuable, and so if you have special DVDs in your Angelina collection then you may want to make sure they are covered on your home insurance! This is also important if you have any other valuable memorabilia, such as autographs.

Digital Collections
Of course, not everyone sees the appeal in collecting physical items, and if your priority is simply to have a complete collection of all of your favorite films, or even all of Angelina’s movies, then a digital collection will be less expensive to build, and will also take up less space! Most people who collect discs seriously also have digital copies of everything, so they don’t need to actually use the discs, preserving their value, and so they can still take their favorite movies with them wherever they go. It can also serve as a back-up in case anything happens to your DVDs.

If you have any kind of digital media collection that is important to you, it is a very good idea to make sure the drive you keep it on is regularly backed up, and you can recover it if you ever need to. Check out this site to learn more about secure backup and recovery.
So, what kind of collection do you have, and how do you make sure all of your Angelina Jolie movies will be safe for as long as you want to own them?
