Tiffany & Co. and Costco have settled a lawsuit in which Costco was accused of trademark infringement and counterfeiting.

The parties “amicably resolved their dispute,” Costco attorney David Bernstein said in a statement, according to Reuters.

Tiffany had claimed that Costco was touting rings as “Tiffany” when they were not. Costco defended itself by asserting that “Tiffany” is a generic term for a type of setting.

The litigation has been ongoing for eight years.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
