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.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
