INSTAGRAM ANSWER: NUMBER 2 IS FAKE
Hello everyone, hope you are doing well 🙂
Today we are going to talk about one of Cartier’s most iconic pieces of jewellery : Cartier LOVE Bracelets.They are desirable pieces of everyday jewellery for both men and women.
As you all know replicas of luxury brands are all over the world and are getting more and more every day, so here are a few tips to help you identify the main differences between a real LOVE bangle and a fake one.
The real Cartier bracelet came with a red Cartier Box, with the word Cartier written in gold in the middle of the box and inside of it.You can easily notice by the picture the colour, the font that is regular and not so big. Notice even the soft material inside the box.
2. THE HALLMARKS AND LOGOS
Every Cartier Love bracelet is stamped with a “hallmark” that indicates the metal quality.It can be stamped 750 for bracelets made out of 18K gold, and 950 for Platinum bracelets. If those hallmarks are not impressed on your bracelet, it’s definitely a warning sign and if they are look at them better because the real Cartier love bracelet’s markings should be readable, even, and smooth.
The font should be regular.
3. EVALUATE THE QUALITY
Cartier use the top grades of diamonds and the highest quality of gold and platinum on their items, so you can notice the difference with the fake one by the quality of bracelet.The real bracelet should weigh between 30-38 grams, so feel the weight of it.
4. THE SCREWS
Real Cartier Love bracelets are very precise and the screws perfectly stamped into the metal. The screw stamps on the replicas are not properly aligned, uneven, and not a smooth surface.
Remember that any sign of the smallest imperfection means you very well might be looking at a fake.
Look at the pictures for more details.
Another difference is the price.If you are looking for a real Cartier Love Bracelet you have to pay a lot of money. The price of a new gold Cartier Love Bracelet is $6,300 ,so any other price that is too far off this is a sign of fake.
To make sure you are not buying a replica, take a look at the official website for the prices.
