TOMTOM Jewelry just can't catch a break. Just four weeks after Urban Outfitters ripped off the LA brand's Future in Retrograde necklace (which UO promptly apologized for), another popular retailer is playing copycat.

Designer Elena Coleman revealed on Twitter last night that Pittsburgh-based e-commerce site ModCloth's $11.99 Out of Line ring is a dead ringer for her $155 Tribal Matters ring. "Hey @modcloth, I'll see you in court! This ring has been copyrighted," she captioned the side-by-side photo. When will it end?

UPDATE: A ModCloth rep reached out to explain that they did not design or produce the ring. They've pulled the item from their site and have contacted the vendor. Read more in the comments below.
