Chrome Hearts is, without doubt, one of the coolest culture brands when it comes to streetwear. They are known for their cross jeans, as well as for their rings which come in a few cool models.

  • The Chrome Hearts Forever 2003 ring is one of the most popular ones.
  • We’ve made this guide on how to spot fake Chrome Hearts Forever 2003 rings for you to learn how to authenticate them.

Let’s begin.

How to tell if a Chrome Hearts ring is real or fake

You can tell if a Chrome Hearts ring is real or fake by checking the text engraved all over the ring. A fake example always has visibly thicker inscriptions compared to the original counterpart.

1. Interior text

  • The fake ring’s text is at the wrong thickness.
  • Notice how the “2003” and the “925” text looks too thin on the fake ring.
  • The fake ring’s dot (“.”) is placed too far away from the “925” text, while the genuine ring’s dot is placed very close to the number “9” in the “925” inscription.

Is it too hard? Reach out to our expert Chrome Hearts authenticators:

2. Exterior logo

  • The fake ring’s text is improperly spaced.
  • The fake ring’s “Ch Forever” inscriptions are placed too close to each other because there is too little blank space in-between them.
  • Also, the fake letters are too thick, while the legit ones are thinner.
  • The thickness issue can be easily seen in the fake ring’s letter “O” the easiest.

3. Crosses

  • The fake ring’s crosses are way different from the ones seen on the retail ring.
  • In fact, the fake ring’ crosses are too narrow and thin, while the original Chrome Hearts Forever 2003 ring’s crosses are wider, thicker and bulkier than the fake ones.

4. Top & Bottom text

  • The fake ring’s “Chrome Hearts” text looks too thin since it was fit too little deep into the metal.

On the other hand, the authentic Chrome Hearts 2003 ring’s “Chrome Hearts” text looks thicker, and it fits deeper into the meta than the fake one’s text.

5. Round-side crosses

  • The fake ring’s crosses are way smaller than the legitimate ones, which are bigger and bulkier.

Shortlist: Quickly tell a fake Chrome Hearts ring

  1. Inspect the text on the interior side of your ring, as counterfeit products often have text that is either excessively thick or too thin.
  2. Examine the “Ch Forever” text throughout your ring, as fake rings commonly display words with improper spacing.
  3. Look closely at the crosses on the top and bottom sides of your ring; counterfeit Chrome Hearts Forever 2003 rings frequently feature crosses that are overly narrow, thin, and not adequately embedded into the metal.
  4. Check the “Chrome Hearts” text at the top and bottom of your ring, as replica Chrome Hearts rings often have text that is too thin.
  5. Verify the crosses present along the curved side of your ring; fake Chrome Hearts Forever 2003 rings may have crosses that are too small.

In situations where the detailed steps provided above may not be feasible due to time constraints or when considering online purchases of rings.
