Years after their engagement came to an end, Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Pitt's careers have crossed paths once again, after the Oscar-winning actress was unveiled as jewellery firm Damiani's new spokesperson in Tokyo this week.

Dressed in jeans, a sheer top and gold jacket, Gwyneth proudly flashed jewels by Damiani, which counts ex-fiancé Brad as a designer, and his wife Jennifer Aniston as a onetime model.

Troy star Brad designs the D-Side range, which includes men's and women's accessories and wedding bands – including near-replicas of the diamond-studded platinum bands he and wife Jennifer Aniston exchanged when they wed in 2000. According to reports, D-Side baubles will be included in the jewels Gwyneth is to model in the upcoming advertising campaign.

Hunky Brad, who was in Tokyo last May to promote Damiani's pricey sparklers, counts famous names such as Italian royal Emmanuel Filiberto amongst fans of his designs. The prince chose handmade D-Side rings designed by Brad for his wedding to French actress Clotilde Courau last year.
