New York, NY--Jewelry brands, David Yurman and Mejuri settled their trademark lawsuits on Tuesday, court documents reveal. The terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

Judge Ronnie Abrams of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York closed the case writing that the action is discontinued “without costs to any party and without prejudice to restoring the action to this Court's docket if the application to restore the action is made within thirty (30) days.”

David Yurman sued Mejuri on December 17 alleging Mejuri infringed on a number of its designs. In particular, Yurman argued that Mejuri’s Croissant Dôme bracelets, earrings, and rings allegedly infringed on Yurman’s Pure Form and Sculpted Cable jewelry trade dress. Yurman also accused Mejuri of falsely associating itself with Yurman through its marketing and advertising cvampaigns.

Mejuri, founded in 2015, denied these claims. On March 4, 2022, Mejuri filed an 87-page countersuit alleging that Yurman’s original lawsuit “is an attempt to bully an emerging competitor, monopolize common design motifs, and prevent competition from one of the fastest growing fine jewelry brands in a rapidly evolving industry.”

Judge Abrams’ order closes with this statement: “If the parties seek to have the Court retain jurisdiction to enforce a settlement agreement, the terms of the agreement must be placed on the public record.”
