Unfortunately Cartier rings are amongst the most “faked” items out there. Unless you are buying from a reputable vendor and have the appropriate paperwork, you need to be very wary.
Cartire doesn’t offer an authentication service so you can’t check with them.
One way to tell if it is at least genuine 18ct gold is that the weight for a size 54 Cartier Love ring is 7.1 grams. If it is that weight it’s more likely Cartier and if not it’s at least real 18ct gold.
Some things to contemplate:
-If the price is anywhere near the retail at Cartier - buy from Cartier. You will then know it is an authentic piece and you will have all paperwork in case you decide to sell the ring in the future
-Buying used from a site such as Anns Fabulous Finds / Fashionphile - where you may get original paperwork or at a minimum the item is authenticated as original
Hi there!thanks for your response,it was sold by the time I had made up my mind to purchase it but the person who purchased authenticated and found it was real,thanks again,I guess I’ll try again soon.
