Pitt and Aniston settle rings case
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt
The couple married in July 2000
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston have reached a settlement with a jewellery designer they accused of copying their wedding rings.

The couple filed a $50m lawsuit against Silvia Damiani and Damiani international, claiming the company was reproducing and selling the rings, which were designed by Ocean's Eleven star Pitt.

The Italian outfit said in a statement: "The legal proceedings have been amicably resolved and were the result of an unfortunate misunderstanding."

Under the agreement, Pitt will design an exclusive jewellery collection for Damiani, while Aniston will appear in Damiani advertising.

Pitt designed the distinctive rings himself for the wedding in July 2000.

They are made of white gold and diamonds with Aniston's engraved with the words "Brad 2000", and Pitt's bearing the words "Jen 2000".

The couple alleged Damiani agreed never to reproduce them.
