I think this is clearer.Do you see a mark on the Saint Bernard dog ear like one of these?
They would indicate where made. The markings in your ring look good, they do not look like any markings I've seen in cheap fakes. However, I am not an expert.

The screenshot photos are not good enough to be honest to make a clear conclusion, I am sorry. I would need better photos of engraving, side of the ring and top engraving to make something out of this. Currently I don't like top LOVE engraving but this could be photo defect.
I can't say for sure. Certificates can easily be forged: I've seen really nice fake ones.
I had one from 96 that was the same. It comes with two different types of authenticity certificates/guarantees from people they use but that doesn’t mean anything to me. I’ll probably just have to pay a third authenticator for piece of mind. I’m not sure how much better of a picture I can get.I can't say for sure.

What I don't like about this ring is absence of extra markings indicating where the ring was made. But it could be just an old ring when Cartier were not doing these stamps. Also engraving is a bit coarse but this also could be just an old Cartier style (14 yo after all...). So it's really hard to tell. In person I would have checked all the set including boxes and certificate.
Yes!! It does have them. They’re super tiny but I can just barely make it out. They must change placement/size throughout the years. I’ll try and get a picture in just a bit under the magnifying glass. Thank you so much!
