Sterling Canyon reports on a jewelry company in Los Angeles that has been shut down by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California, accused of selling counterfeit gold and silver jewelry made in…where else but China. On top of that is the fact that the jewelry is coated in lead. The Elegance Fashion Mart located in downtown LA marketed various pieces to retailers in Texas, Florida, Georgia and Illinois. The jewelry, copies of labels like these pictured included Tiffany & Co., Bulgari, Tous and Van Cleef & Arpels, were manufactured in Qingdao, China, and illegally imported in the United States. If the seized items had been genuine, they would have been worth more than $18 million, federal officials said. Buying from non-trusting retailers who can’t
verify the origin and maker of the jewelry should be avoided. Even trustworthy department stores like Macy’s can’t always be trusted to make sure what they are selling are real. Sterling Canyon offers only Sterling Silver and now White Gold jewelry from top designers in the United States and Europe. Buying a beautiful blue topaz necklace is easy.
