Do you own real Vivienne Westwood jewellery?

2 Aug 2013

With many sites selling fake Vivienne Westwood items, you need to be very careful to ensure that you are buying the real thing.

When purchasing the cheaper versions ask yourself these questions:

  1. how long will this jewellery last for? Is a question I cannot give an answer to.
  2. does this jewellery come with a warranty or right to a return? Probably not.
  3. will be there be a noticeable difference from the real thing? There will be a difference!

Craftsmanship is the first thing that springs to mind on looking at these fake pieces. Here is one from

The detailing of the product is very poor. The crystals look loosely set into the metal and the colouring (which should be enamel) looks painted on. You can judge for yourselves - but for £14 it probably will not last. The second thing I notice is the poor image quality. The lighting and position of the product has not been taken into account.


This image is of genuine Vivienne Westwood jewellery The pink enamel is set neatly into the shape of the rhodium plated metal and the crystals also look securely set. The image quality is excellent as the professional photographer has taken the time to get the lighting and position of the products to show it at its best.
