Copyright and Quality Issues
You may think that it is okay to buy a replica that looks identical to the original and suits your pocket. Have you given a thought to the copyright issues involved? Replicas as the name implies copy the designs of popular brands thus operating on the wrong side of the law.
Tiffany designs are the intellectual property of the designers working for Tiffany. When you buy Replica Tiffany, the money you pay does not reach the designer who came up with the designs you are drawn to. Do you think this is fair?
You are depriving yourself the pleasure of owning a true masterpiece.
Your cheap Tiffany may look identical to the real one, but you'll soon be dissatisfied with your purchase. Every time you look at the crude finish, you'll wonder if maybe you shortchanged yourself.
What do you do if your replica jewelry is in need of repair? Do you think the seller will accommodate you?
