You can spot a fake Cartier Love ring by looking at the text engraved on the interior side of the ring. Replica Cartier rings never have their inscriptions at the correct thickness. Authentic Cartier rings are always made with super high care, as no flaw slips through the genuine products, hence the high quality which sets the real deal apart from the counterfeit Cartier Love rings.
Cartier is a brand of luxury which delivers what they promise: high-quality, lasting luxury products, and they are most known for their Love products, including the bracelet and the ring.
This post is presenting you with a guide on how to spot a fake Cartier ring in just a few simple steps to follow.
This fake vs real Cartier Love ring authenticity check guide will go you through the best ways, yet the easiest ways to legit check these rings.
You can tell if your Cartier ring is real by checking the text engraved on the interior side. Take a picture, zoom in, and see if the inscriptions are too thick — if they are, you’re looking at a fake ring.
Let’s see how to do this!
1. Cartier engraving
1.1. Best replica
Authentic: “Cartier” is thinner.
Fake: The “Cartier” text is too thick.
Aside from the brand’s name, see how the “750” and the size engravings are also thicker on the fake.
The “Cartier” text logo appears too boxy and thick.
The size inscription “63” is both too thin and boxy.
The “Au750” text is too thin, lacking the thickness seen in authentic rings.
Excessive spacing between the letters “A” and “u” in the “Au750” text.
1.3. Bad replica
The letters are appropriately proportioned and surface-level on the fabric.
The letter “C” is perfectly aligned with the rest of the letters.
The letter “C” has a thinner and more elegant appearance.
The letters are embedded too deeply into the fabric, giving them a thicker appearance.
“C” is crooked and not aligned with the rest of the letters.
The letter “C” is excessively thick compared to the thinner appearance on the authentic ring.
2. Serial number
Authentic: Thinner text, as it’s engraved less deep into the metal.
Fake: Very thick inscriptions.
Authentic: Gentle reflection of light.
Fake: Too chrome, as it reflect too much light.
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.
4. Exterior pattern
Authentic: The lines on the ring are thinner, indicating a shallower engraving into the metal.
Fake: The lines are embedded too deeply into the metal, resulting in a thicker appearance.
Authentic: Reflects light and is way shinier than the fake.
Fake: The diamond doesn’t reflect any light.
Note how the fake diamond also reflects pink and purple — and how the real one doesnt’.
Authentic: The “Cartier” text on the retail box is thicker, indicating a more robust and clearer font.
Fake: The text on the box is too thin, with the letters appearing too narrow even in unclear pictures.
Above is what an authentic Love ring’s certificate looks like.
Make sure the ‘Individual serial number’ and ‘Date of Purchase’ are in tune with your ring’s.
Below is as gallery of other authentic types of Cartier certificates:
Shortlist: Check your ring
Check the “Cartier” logo on the interiorside. Fake rings have their text in the wrong font-weight.
Verify the serial number. A fake ring may have it thicker than the original.
Inspect the shininess of the ring. Fakes may be too chrome and reflect too much light.
Examine the Love exterior pattern. Make sure the elements are not too thick.
If applicable, check the diamonds. Counterfeit diamonds may not be shiny enough.
Inspect the box of your ring. Mostly, the fake rings have their “Cartier” text on the interior side of the box looking too thin and narrow.
Look at the certificate. Make sure there is a valid date of purchase and serial number.
The detailed steps outlined above might not be so practical when you are in a hurry or when you want to buy the rings online.
