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.”

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
