The complaint says he used a “deceptive consignment scheme.”

The Florida attorney general has filed a complaint against jeweler Christopher Kaufmann, the Palm Beach Daily News reports.

The complaint states that Kaufmann took jewelry from consumers “through a deceptive consignment scheme.” Kaufmann’s Le Salon is located in the upscale Worth Avenue district of Palm Beach.

Attorney General Pam Bondi says there are at least 17 victims owed a total of well over $500,000. The Daily News reports that it was not able to reach Kaufmann for comment.

The attorney general is asking a Palm Beach County Circuit Court judge to have Kaufmann pay restitution and civil penalties. The attorney general also wants Kaufmann to be barred permanently from consigning jewelry in Florida.

The complaint states that the jewelry taken was worth over $1 million in all.

Kaufmann is facing several lawsuits from plaintiffs who claim he owes them money or jewelry.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
