Brands that have hijacked commonplace symbols/motifs
Tiffany - heart charm/pendant
Van Cleef & Arpels - quatrefoil
Givenchy; Versace - Greek key
Chanel - flower (apparently, it's a camellia)
Vivian Westwood - sovereign's orb
These symbols/motifs existed independently before brands came along and hijacked them. Please don't assume I am wearing an imitation/knockoff/wannabe item of one of these brands.
