: I should have been clearer: I'm wondering whether it would be ethical to BUY a ring closely modeled after a brand name's design. Thanks-
Without taking ANY professional responsibility, my gut says buying may be legal. The law usually is involved with make, use or sell.
If only copyright is involved, the copyright protects against copyinging. A different but inspired work, MAY not be a infringment.
