Ah well, first let me tell you I'm glad they saw you first ;)
All I can say is that I did those graphics with Inkscape from a
screenshot of Bejeweled. I can't see how it would be illegal but IANAL.
(+ mine are better ;)
It's your decision but I would not bother fighting other 7 icons. And
it's easy enough to make them slightly different anyway. You can change
the colors to start with. How about the attached example, still
illegal  ?
