Thanks to our loyal customers, it has been brought to our attention that knock-off copies of our original designs have been sold all over the internet - this includes Wish, Ebay, Aliexpress, as well as within the Etsy community itself. In the past, we have chosen to dedicate our energy creating instead of fighting, and most sellers have shown respect to our intellectual property by taking down the infringement content as soon as they are notified in private. However, a recent incident with another well-known Etsy seller has left us with no choice but to expose our frustrations to the public.
Due to Instagram character limit, we will be publishing the full case details on our Facebook page shortly.
To ensure the best aesthetic appearance without sacrificing functionality, our designer (Michelle) spends countless hours sketching, prototyping, and iterating upon previous versions to ensure that our jewelry turns out as uniquely beautiful as the one who wears them. From initial concept to the completion of the final prototype, the process typically takes 3-6 months at the minimum. We take endless inspiration from nature, history, classic fairytales, and beautiful surroundings that we often take for granted in life. Our jewelry is created for the history inside, the stories it holds, and the beauty it inspires. One may easily copy what they see, but a visual is not considered an art unless it’s given a soul.
With the exception of a few classic jewelry styles like simple solitaire and halo settings, all of our designs are original works and copyrighted as the intellectual property of Michellia Designs™. Any commercial use of our intellectual property without the prior written consent of Michellia Designs constitutes trademark and copyright infringement in violation of US federal and state laws. We take design infringement very seriously and will take legal actions when necessary. We are currently NOT selling anywhere outside of Etsy and www.michellia.com is our ONLY official store.
Thank you for supporting us as the original designer for our original artwork. We will continue to be fearlessly authentic with better, finer original creations for years to come.
