The measure aims to eliminate counterfeit versions of Picchiotti’s technology.
“My family and I are incredibly proud to have been awarded a rare and meaningful U.S. jewellery patent,” said company founder Giuseppe Picchiotti. “We knew from the beginning that the genius of this technology was special and would ensure long-lasting comfort for our customers. The patent now sanctions the originality of our invention and ensures that Xpandable customers can be confident they are getting a genuine Picchiotti creation.”
The collection launched in 2016 with about a dozen styles and has since expanded to include more than 200 designs of precious gemstone bracelets and rings.
