A Hermes Clic Clac H enamel bracelet is the most recognizable fashion bracelet in the designer world. These beautiful bracelets are trendy and classic and also HIGHLY counterfeited. So, here are some super easy tips on how to authenticate these coveted bangles.
Observe the space on the sides of the H. If you can stick another leg of the H in that space, it's a fake! This is a very common error among some counterfeit H enamel bracelets.
Another common error on replicas is the edge of the enamel (colored part of the bracelet). The enamel and metal part of the Hermes clic clac bracelet are made separately and then later attached. The enamel usually has a rounded edge and not a sharp edge. If the enamel's edge is flush to the rest of the bracelet or is sharp, it's a fake.
Some enamel on H bracelets are more rounded than others, but it should never have a sharp edge.
This one's a dead giveaway. Many very poor fakes will have a phillips (x) screw instead of the appropriate slot (-) screw. In general, high-end designers do not use phillips screws on jewelry and handbags.
Isn't it weird how counterfeiters will sometimes add extra accessories? A Hermes clic clac bracelet NEVER comes with a plastic authenticity card. If you see this accessory, avoid the bracelet!
Yet, another easy easy tip that we're delighted to share with you! The difference in quality oftentimes even shows when looking at their packaging. Hermes will never produce a misaligned box for their bags or accessories. See how obviously askew the border is on the fake box?
These tips cover some very common errors that counterfeiters make. They will definitely help you in avoiding A LOT of fakes, and may often let you know instantly when someone is wearing a replica.
However, for a full authentication, many more details are observed, sometimes even the tiny hole in the clasp! Stamping is also another major aspect of authentication, but given the many many variants of authentic and replica versions of stamping, it is much too complicated for a blog post. This is why we have always believed in the combination of an expert and software.
