Determining whether the piece of jewellery you’ve bought is genuine or not can sometimes be very daunting, especially if you’ve purchased the item from an auction site on the internet. There are ways of telling whether the piece of pre owned Pandora jewellery you’ve bought is genuine or not. Shopping on the internet can be a great way of finding bargains but it can often lead to consequences. The internet is the easiest place to find fakes, especially when not purchasing from a reputable dealer.
It is always tempting when you see cheap or reduced Pandora items for sale online, however if it seems too good to be true, the likelihood is that it is. Sometimes it can be easy to spot a fake and other times it might be hard than you think. There are some simple steps to take to avoid making the mistake of purchasing fake or replica Pandora charms and other Pandora jewellery.
Some of the main issues with fake Pandora are that it is highly unlikely these items will be made from real Sterling Silver which means they are likely to be of poor quality. Sadly, these qualities are normally what it costs to buy fakes rather than official Pandora jewellery and charms.
So how do you exactly spot fake Pandora charms? So one of the first things to look for when trying to work out if your charm is genuine is by looking at the thread on the inside of the charm. Real Pandora charms are threaded to fit on their bracelets, normally the fake charms are done so poorly that it can even cause damage to the bracelet.
As all Pandora jewellery items, including their charms are hand finished, the replicas tend to miss the fine details and finish that you would expect from Pandora. Real Pandora items have these key things feature on them. The O in Pandora will always have a crown above, there will always be the hallmark of ALE which is the initials of the founder’s father and to clarify the quality of the Sterling Silver and 14K Gold used by Pandora there will be the mark S925 for Silver and 585 for Gold.
