3 quickest ways to spot fake Cartier

1. Serial Number


  • Features thinner text, as it’s engraved less deep into the metal.


  • Has very thick inscriptions.

2. Diamonds


  • Shiny, reflective diamonds that exhibit a high level of opulence.


  • Diamonds on the fake item are less shiny and powerful, lacking the opulence of real diamonds.

3. Shininess


  • The authentic bracelet is more powerful and shiny when light lands on it.
  • When light touches your Juste Un Clou bracelet, the gold should reflect it in a powerful way, similar to the original example provided.


  • Not enough light is being reflected on the fake bracelet.
