Tiffany is suing one our our very favorite stores, COSTCO, over the engagement rings sold… wrongly labeling them as “Tiffany”!
From the ChicagoTribune:
“… The trademark lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court also calls on Costco to forfeit profits from the ring sales, plus damages of $2 million per infringement.
Tiffany said it believes hundreds, if not thousands, of Costco members bought engagement rings they believed were authentic Tiffany products but were not.”
NOTE: We know that Housewives also love Costco!!! One of the OC Housewives was the subject of this National Enquirer blind item back on January 11, 2012:
The answer to the not-so-blind-item was, OF COURSE, the HoneyBooBoo of the OC…
Tamballs Barney… admitted that she was the Costco-browsing Housewife two months after the blind item was mentioned:
Tamra: This is a funny story and the first time I have ever told it publicly. Eddie and I are big Costco fans and go together once a week. Everyone knows that the jewelry is right when you walk in. For the past year, I would look and try on the rings, and he would always drag me away telling me if I didn’t stop he would actually buy me a Costco ring one day. I told him I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Guess what? He did! The best part is, it came in bulk! We often joke that we will get married at Costco. I love my ring and it is the exact ring I had been looking at for the past year. However, I am having my jeweler at Nuggets and Carats design two pave eternity wedding bands to go on each side of the ring.
We love Costco!!
And, again, thank Camille Grammer for thinking of us during one of her last visits!
