Eliantte & Co. v. Davis

Full title: ELIANTTE & CO, Plaintiff, v. GERVONTA DAVIS, Defendant.

Court: United States District Court, S.D. New York

Date published: May 31, 2022

Facts

Eliantte is a New York-based jewelry company that Davis, a professional boxer, commissioned in late 2019 to manufacture custom jewelry pieces including a diamond-encrusted charm (the “Charm”), a diamond-encrusted tennis chain (the “Chain”), and a Richard Mille RM 11 diamond encrusted watch (the “Watch”). On December 2, 2019, Eliantte sent Davis an invoice totaling $486,671.25 for these custom jewelry pieces (the “Jewelry”).

Elliot Buryev (“Buryev”) is the principal and sole owner of Eliantte. On December 28, 2019, Buryev delivered the jewelry to Davis at a boxing match in Atlanta, Georgia, in exchange for a personal check for $486,671.25 payable to Eliantte and signed by Davis. Davis asked Buryev to wait five days to deposit the check because he was awaiting payment for a boxing match. Buryev waited five days, but when he deposited the check, it was returned for insufficient funds. To this date, Eliantte has not received payment for any of the items, nor has Davis returned the Jewelry to Eliantte.
