Trent West, Benchmark Jewelry Settle Tungsten Carbide Suit

 Jewelry Designer Trent West, owner of TrewTungsten, announced today that his lawsuit in California against Benchmark and Jewelry Innovations has been settled.

Both Benchmark and Jewelry Innovations have agreed to sell non-infringing tungsten carbide rings and to pay substantial penalties for past sales of infringing product. In return, they have been granted licenses to continue to sell their tungsten carbide rings to selected independent jewelry retailers in the United States.

West comments, "I am pleased that we have come to an amicable solution and look forward to Benchmark and Jewelry Innovations also selling these innovative and high-quality rings."

Trent West Designs is the premier manufacturer of tungsten carbide wedding rings. Benchmark and Jewelry Innovations join Frederick Goldman, Inc. as licensees of West's portfolio of seven U.S. patents relating to the concept and manufacture of tungsten carbide rings.
