Riddhima Sahni apologizes after being accused of plagiarism


Rishi Kapoor’s loving daughter Riddhima Kapoor Sahni was accused of copying a well known jewellery brand and following which she has issued an apology for her wrong deed.  Riddhima has been accused of copying a design of Pearl King Kokichi Mikimoto's earrings.

DietSabya, an anonymous Instagram account mentioned Riddhima’s name as he posted a side by side comparison image of the two earrings on its account with the caption, "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!"

Soon after the post went viral, the designer did not waste any time to post an apology note.

Riddhima apology post reads, "We at 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!"

In her post, Riddhima also added: "We respect the creativity of every designer and would never copy and disregard any of them!"
