Van Cleef & Arpels vs Heidi Klum law suit dismissed

Late last year Van Cleef & Arpels sued Heidi Klum over their strikingly similar clover shaped jewellery collections – Klum with her collection which sold on QVC and Van Cleef & Arpels vintage Alhambra jewellery line.

The law suit was dismissed this weekend by a federal judge after newly filed court documents stated that the two jewellery houses had “settled the controversy between them without any admission of liability.”

No word on what the resolution was, but we do know that Van Cleef’s were seeking more than $25,000 in damages and that due to the dismissal without prejudice, no further suit can be brought before court again.

Do you think Klum’s clover designs were inspired by “a cathedral in Milan” as she said in 2007?
