This is not copying designs, but doing so with the utmost of being
"fraudulent". I know of a fellow who originates from another country
and he is copying not only the setting designs, or styles, but also
using the companies name. He actually showed me that companies
catalogue and that trademark stamp that he uses! He makes the
jewellery here and has his setters copy the setting style and then
’he’ sends back to his original country the finished rings. Can you
say “knock-offs”? I have no need to be a part of his charade. I
prefer not to mention the name of that company, or his name.
Oh yes, he is selling gold and diamonds extremely close to the
original. Slightly disgusted when I see what he is doing. He is
making many people thinking that they are buying the original, but
they aren’t. Is this right? not in my books.
