Ranbir Kapoor's sister and designer Riddhima Kapoor Sahni, who recently launched a festive jewellery line under her label R Jewellery, has issued an apology on social media after being accused of plagiarising a design of Pearl King Kokichi Mikimoto's earrings.

DietSabya, an anonymous Instagram account dedicated to calling out the fakes and the rampant plagiarism in the industry, 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, Riddhima took to Instagram to apologise for not tagging the original designer Kokichi Mikimoto on her post.

"Dear Insta family, we at Riddhima Kapoor 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 legendary Kokichi Mikimotoa legend with pearls! We respect the creativity of every designer and would never copy and disregard any of them,” read the post shared by Riddhima on her official Insatgram.​
