On July 8, Howard Kroll was quoted by JCK, a magazine focusing on the jewelry industry, on a civil complaint filed by Artisan Jewelers against Verragio. The complaint stems from Artisan's sale of a ring described as "Verragio style" or Verragio inspired," as well as Artisan's Instagram postings of five similarly described rings. Verragio sent a cease-and-desist letter to Artisan following the Instagram postings. Artisan maintains that the posts do not constitute infringement of Verragio's copyrights.

"We're confident that a jury will find Artisan responsible for these infringing acts,” Howard said, noting that the rings were listed on both Yelp and Foursquare along with prices, indicating they could be purchased.
