Tiffany & Co. is a brilliant designer that makes some of the most sought after jewelry in the world. Unfortunately, this has led many to create fake or counterfeit Tiffany pieces and then try to sell them as originals. In this short video we’ll go over some of the ways you can tell if a piece of Tiffany & Co. jewelry is genuine or not.
- Look at any solder joints on the piece. Tiffany’s jewelers are excellent craftsman and you should not be able to readily see a seem or crack at the solder joints.
- For jewelry claiming to be silver (stamped sterling silver or 925), check that the piece is actually sterling silver. Tiffany uses high quality silver while many of the knock-offs are actually plated brass.
- Check the stamp. Make sure it’s there, it’s spelled correctly, and there aren’t any obvious errors (like it being off center).
At Arden Jewelers, we don’t like fake jewelry. We have a great collection of genuine Tiffany & Co. available for sale in our shop, and we check every piece to make sure it’s the real thing. When we find one that isn’t… well, you can watch the video to see what we do with it. 🙂
