Store’s owner denies wrongdoing, but says he knows what happened.
High-end jewelry maker Tacori has filed a lawsuit against the Intercarats independent jewelry store in Norfolk, VA claiming that the shop has sold at least one counterfeit Tacori engagement ring, The Virginian-Pilot reports. The article says that the store’s owner, Shashank Kamdar, denies that he has ever sold any fakes and claims there has been a mix-up.
According to the article, Kamdar attributes the lawsuit to a customer who came to him in search of a Tacori-like ring, which Kamdar helped get made for him. A Tacori attorney says he has an Intercarats receipt that reads “Tacori Platinum Engagement Ring Mounting,” but Kamdar says that receipt must have been doctored and that he has the original receipt to prove it. Tacori is seeking $2 million in damages, attorney’s fees and “corrective advertising.”
