The jewelry maker is taking a different marketing angle.

The recently launched advertising campaign from Tiffany & Co. highlights the 130th anniversary of its notable “Tiffany” ring setting – the same setting that’s the subject of a lawsuit that the jewelry maker filed against Costco in 2013, CultureMap Houston writes.

The article says that the lawsuit originates from when Tiffany found rings in a display case at a California Costco “labeled with the word ‘Tiffany’ and discovered that a salesperson at the store there referred to them as such.” Costco defended itself by asserting that “Tiffany” is a generic term for a type of setting, but a U.S. District Court in Manhattan ruled that the discount chain knowingly infringed on Tiffany’s intellectual property. Now, Tiffany is trumpeting quality in its latest ads, which depict the “hard work of its top gemologist, as well as the specialists who set and polish the diamonds.”

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

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!”
