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.”

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
