You can tell if your Cartier Love bracelet is real by looking at the text engraved on the interior side. A fake Love bracelet always has deeper, thicker text compared to a real one.

Got a bracelet and you’re not sure whether it’s real or fake? In this guide, we’ll teach you how to know if a Cartier Love bracelet is real or fake.

By the end, you’ll know how to differentiate between the two, and you’ll know what makes an authentic Cartier product.

With each step of this guide on how to spot fake Cartier Love bracelets, we’ll link real vs fake images to help you understand the flaws on the fake and visualise them with ease.

Without any further ado, let’s jump right into the guide on how to spot fake Cartier Love bracelets.

How to spot a fake Cartier Love bracelet

Real Cartier Love bracelets have perfectly aligned letters, numbers, and symbols on the interior side. A fake always has thicker inscriptions!

Let’s see all the methods on how to spot a fake Cartier Love bracelet in these 6 detailed methods.

1. Interior engravings

  • The fake bracelet has its “Cartier” text looking too small and too thin.
  • The fake “Cartier” logo also looks too small on the fake.
  • Notice how the fake logo is placed too high, as it is too far from the bottom side of the bracelet.

The authentic Cartier Love bracelet has its text looking more defined and it is aligned in the middle of the metal.

A quick mention:

  • The steps we’ve written so far are the BEST ways to authenticate this item
  • The next few steps are still reliable methods…
  • … but they apply to non-top-versions of replicas available for this item

If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.

2. Pin

  • The authentic bracelet has the top of its pin clear, with no printings.
  • The fake pin has an extra “Cartier” logo. That should never be there on a genuine product.

Authentic Cartier Love bracelets never have this extra “Cartier” text.

3. Interior screws

  • The fake Cartier Love bracelet has thicker screws on the interior side.
  • The fake bracelet’s screw comes out of the bracelet too much, while the authentic bracelet has its button fit deeper into the bracelet.

Note: The size of the screw doesn’t vary from one side to another on the authentic bracelets.

4. Horizontal screws

This step doesn’t apply to the diamond-engraved Love bracelets, as diamonds usually replace these screws.

If your Cartier bracelet has diamonds instead of these screw lines, you should skip to the next tell.

  • The fake bracelet has its circle and its line looking too thick.
  • Then, the fake Cartier Love bracelet also has its line in the circle looking too short and too boxy.

The authentic box has its text looking smaller and thinner.

Shortlist: Quickly tell a fake Cartier Love bracelet

Here’s a numbered list of steps for authenticating your Cartier Love bracelet:

  1. Examine the engravings on the interior side of your bracelet. Fake bracelets often have thin and small text.
  2. Analyze the pin of your bracelet. Counterfeit Cartier Love bracelets may have “Cartier” text on the pin, while authentic ones are clean and empty.
  3. Verify the depth of the button on the interior side. Fake bracelets may have a thick button protruding excessively.
  4. Inspect the engravings on the exterior side. Counterfeit bracelets might feature thick elements and a short, boxy, and thick line in the circle.
  5. Check the size of your Cartier Love bracelet. Fakes tend to be overly big and wide.
  6. Examine the box. Fake bracelets often display “Cartier” text that is excessively large and thick on both the interior and exterior sides of the box.

The comprehensive 6 steps mentioned earlier might not be as feasible when you’re pressed for time or considering an online purchase for the bracelets.
