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.”

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.
