Heidi Klum shuts down jewellery business

entertainment Updated: Aug 14, 2009 16:23 IST

German supermodel Heidi Klum has shut down her jewellery business after she was taken to court by exclusive gem firm Van Cleef & Arpels.

The runway beauty launched a collection of designs five years ago and the range was a success, selling out within moments of going on sale on TV shopping channels.

Klum reveals a lack of business experience, coupled with a lawsuit by Van Cleef & Arpels over one particular design, put an end to her jewellery dreams.

"I don't do the jewellery anymore, which I loved doing. Unfortunately, I did have a partner who... maybe wasn't as knowledgeable in terms of setting up a business. I worked five years very hard on that," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Klum as saying.

"But we stopped because we had a lawsuit with Van Cleef & Arpels - they wanted to have the clover, even though our designs had never matched... I don't know how many designs I had done in five years, maybe 800 different designs...but they just wanted to own the clover motif," she added.
