(AP) Jewelers are having to remove some of their rings in Pennsylvania because the “beautiful” rings they sell are inauthentic.
A Pennsylvania judge ruled on Tuesday that a Pennsylvania woman has to remove her rings from a jewelry store.
The ruling by Judge John Kavanagh means that customers in Pennsylvania must return rings that have been bought with fake money or money from the government.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported the case in November.
Kavanagh wrote that the rings were not bought in the state and were not authentic.
He also said that they could be a security risk.
The jewelry shop owner in Pennsylvania said she had to take them down because the rings could be considered a “risk to the public.”
The Philadelphia District Attorney’s office said in a statement that the case was not related to the recent terrorist attacks in France.
Kavagh wrote the rings had a “realistic” design and were sold at a local jeweler.
The rings were made in the USA.
