Urban Outfitters has strongly denied allegations, fueled by a Twitter frenzy, that it stole a necklace design from a jewelry artist in Chicago. In a statement issued Saturday, the Philadelphia-based fashion-and-accessories company said it "unequivocally" did not copy the work of jewelry designer Stevie Koerner. Koerner took to her Twitter account midweek to accuse the chain of illegally copying her work. The jewelry designer, who makes silver necklaces in the shape of American states with hearts punched through them, posted pictures of her necklaces alongside photos of strikingly similar ones sold by Urban Outfitters.

PROSECUTORS said yesterday that they plan to charge Lindsay Lohan with felony grand theft of a $2,500 necklace reported stolen from a jewelry store last month - the most serious count the actress has faced in more than three years of trouble with the law. District Attorney's spokeswoman Jane Robison said the charge will be filed today. Lohan, 24, is due in court for an arraignment this afternoon. Last Wednesday Los Angeles police said that Lohan was under investigation for taking a necklace from a Venice store later identified as Kamofie and Co. Detectives obtained a search warrant to try to retrieve the item from Lohan's home, but it was turned in to a police station before any search was made.

Now, retailers of jewelry, books, music and mugs are poised to reap earthly rewards from The Passion of the Christ.

And a spinoff effect is being felt in brisk sales of DVDs, CDs and books related to Christ's Passion, if not Gibson's.
