Ranbir Kapoor’s sister Riddhima Kapoor, who has been successfully running her jewellery line R Jewelry, was called out for copying an earring’s design and not giving credit where it’s due. An Instagram page Diet Sabya, who points out designers for copying/plagiarism be it clothes or jewellery, took to social media and shared the picture of original vs the picture posed on Riddhima’s Instagram page. It 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! #gandi #dietsabya #copy #🤢 #riddhimakapoorsahni #mikimoto #mikimotopearls”

Later, Riddhima took to social media and apologised for not giving credits to the designer. In her post, she wrote, “Dear Insta family, We are Riddhima Kapoor Sahni Jewelry 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.” The picture of the earrings in question has since been deleted from Riddhima’s Instagram page.
