How do I spot a fake NOMINATION bracelet?
People love to buy NOMINATION bracelets and charms for themselves and as gifts. So how do you know that the Nomination that you are buying is genuine?
If you buy a fake Nomination bracelet or charm it will not have a warranty. This means that if something goes wrong with the item or if it is faulty, then you cannot return it.
All genuine blank Nomination charms will have the word NOMINATION on the front and all charms have ‘STAINLESS STEEL ® NOMINATION’ on the back. If your item does not have this, it may be a fake.
Is it too good to be true?
Sadly if something seems too good to be true, it usually is. Consequentially, if someone is selling ‘genuine’ or ‘authentic’ Nomination at a bargain price, it probably isn’t genuine. On the positive side you may save some money. On the negative side, you will be giving a gift that may not be fit for purpose.
Is it a respectable seller
One of the first things to remember is: is the item from an authorised stockist? For example, do they have clear contact details and a customer policy if you are buying online. Or is it a dodgy website based abroad with no details? If you buy from a market stall or a gift shop in a holiday resort that attracts lots of tourists, then it probably isn’t genuine.
Can you contact them if there is a problem?
If it is online, is there a contact number, email and address? Also, do they have a returns policy? If it is a fake Nomination, the chances are they won’t. Be wary of auction sites or social media selling groups – it is very easy to be fooled but very difficult to get your money back.
Is it good quality?
Nomination charms are hand finished in silver, rose gold and gold. Each piece is checked before being passed for sale. For this reason, if your item is a bit rough round the edges or if the detail is blurry, then it is probably fake.
