Ranbir Kapoor's sister Riddhima Kapoor Sahni accused of jewelry design plagiarism

Born to famous parents Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor, daughter Riddhima Kapoor Sahni never desired to walk the same path of acting like her brother and parents. Instead, she opened her own personal line of jewellery collection called 'R’ Jewelry by Riddhima Kapoor Sahni. She was much praised for her work and was riding high on the success of her brand when another famous jewellery brand accused her of stealing her designs.

Riddhima Kapoor Sahni shared a picture of gorgeous pearl and diamond earrings on her account which seems to belong to the famous creator of the first cultured pearls, Mikimota Kikichi.  A page on Instagram even claimed that Riddhima has taken the picture from their website and posted it there. The earrings were called out by Diet Sabya, which is an anonymous Instagram account dedicated to exposing 'inspirations' or fake copies in the world of fashion. They shared the post and said, “The legendary Kokichi Mikimoto is known in the pearl world as the ‘King of Pearls’. His ‘cultured pearls’ —patented in 1916 — is a benchmark for the industry at large. So, naturally ‘Jewellery designer of the year’, @riddhimakapoorsahniofficial couldn’t help herself from selling the iconic Mikimoto pearl and diamond earrings under her namesake label. If this is not #gutsontoast, we don’t know what is!”

Taking to her social media account, Riddhima issued a clarification and also apologized for not tagging the original creator on the post. She wrote, “We at Riddhima Kapoor Sahni Jewellery, do not encourage plagiarism! We are extremely sorry for not tagging the original designer for an inspirational post of the diamond and pearl earrings by Mikimoto Kokichi- a legend with pearls! We respect the creativity of every designer and would never copy and disregard any of them. Thank you.”
