Guide to authenticating Chanel Earrings

We believe in paying for quality workmanship. We hope that this 6-step guide to authenticating Chanel earrings will help you to separate the real thing from the 'wannabes'. We know that anyone who visits us looking to buy Chanel earrings and investing a good sum to get them wants a pair that was crafted by Chanel and sold in one of their boutiques, not cheap knockoffs of any origin. Like it or not, due to their timeless design and popularity, there are many fake Chanel earrings swimming around the internet.

1. Do get yourself familiar with Chanel designs. Browse Chanel official website, Chanel.com and if possible, visit a Chanel boutique or reputable vintage store to get a feel for their aesthetic and workmanship. The more authentic pieces you examine in person, the more adept you will become at determining which is which.

2. Chanel does not use precious metals, such as sterling silver, gold or platinum, on any of their earrings or jewelry. Metals used are rhodium, stainless steel, and rhodium over steel. Precious metals and jewels are reserved for Chanel's boutique lines which are extremely costly.   If you are buying in person, be sure to hold the earring. It should feel heavy and sturdy, not flimsy. Alarm bells should ring if otherwise stated.

3. Check for an authenticity stamp. Authentic Chanel costume jewelry that has been made within the last few years will have a laser engraved CC. Pierced earrings tend to have plastic disc metal backs, and hoops have clasps, so they do not fall out of your ear. If the earring is large enough, the back will have a stamp of authenticity. However, Chanel hoop earrings are not produced with this stamp of authenticity.

4. Consider the price. Chanel prices vary for their earrings, but a typical Chanel piece starts around S$360. If the selling price is under a S$100, it is probably a fake. Chanel is a high-quality brand, the prices should accurately reflect this.

5. Check the workmanship. Backs of the earrings should be double forged. The stones should not come loose or fall out. The metal should feel solid and not bend. DO NOT BE FOOLED BY A BOX, TAG OR SERIAL NUMBER. Chanel earrings do not come with an authenticity card, if anyone else provides an authenticity card, you should be very worried. And apart from those sold in Chanel's flagship store in 31 Rue Cambon, Paris, the box is white in colour, those earrings bought any other boutiques will be presented normal black box.

Note: Chanel do release seasonal packaging sometimes, but they are still mainly white/black boxes with variations to the ribbon and camellia flower.

6. Chanel doesn't have any factory outlet nor sells older overstock items from their costume jewelry line. They are destroyed to prevent any counterfeit replicas, so be cautious if someone claims so.

Follow our guide to authenticating  Chanel earrings and have fun shopping for your earrings!

2014 IN REVIEW

While the sage between SMRT (Feedback), Nuffnang, Gushcloud and Xiaxue is ongoing, BrandedSG would like to declare that we don’t alter or over-report our statistics , not the anyone cares since we do not have advertisers nor sponsors. In fact, we don’t report anything at all. The statistics shown in the link below is purely what our website host tells us and we do not receive any commercial benefit from revealing them:

“The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. BrandedSG.com was viewed about 41,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 15 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.”

Fwah! 15 sold-out performances leh!!! Our parents will be proud of us.

Jokes aside. BrandedSG would like to take the opportunity to thank everybody who have been supporting or have supported us in one way or another. It has been a good year for us and we are looking forward to bringing more Chanel-s, Hermes-es and other brands to the platform.

Here’s to a great 2015!

Do you know?

The Chanel Classic Flap Bag is the ultimate in luxury inspired by straps found on soldiers’ bags, Coco Chanel created this bag, as she grew tired of carrying her handbags in her arms. In the 1980s, Karl Lagerfeld introduced the signature CC turnlock on the classic flap bag.

It comes in 5 different sizes, Mini, Small, Medium, Jumbo and Maxi. Available in Lambskin, Caviar and Patent leather.

Who loves the Chanel Classic Flag?

“Alongside the Hermes Kelly, this is the most infamous, recognisable, chic and elegant piece in accessory history. Buying one is an investment not only financially but from a style perspective: this bag will never date, and will always make you feel like a million dollars.” -Louise Roe, Fashion Editor at Large, Glamour Magazine.

“As with all iconic items their lure lies in part with their history; the 2.55 bag named after the date of its creation (February 1955) has a fascinating story inside and out. I am always trying to stow something luxurious in the inside zipper pocket as Coco Chanel is rumored to have had hid secret love letters inside her classic flap bag.” -Samantha Yanks, Editor-in-Chief, Gotham & Hamptons Magazine.

“This iconic Chanel is the evergreen “it” bag. Dresses up your jeans, or can accompany you down the red carpet. Buttery soft, and it holds just enough! If you have to own ONE bag, this is it.” -Ali Brown, Entrepreneur Mentor, Los Angeles, Calif.

“To own a Chanel classic flap makes you feel that you are a part of something bigger than just a handbag. There is a sense of elegance, heritage and timelessness that you don’t get from other brands. One must understand and appreciate the art form of this particular piece; I know I will have it forever.” -Kristy Rogerson, Founder & CEO, Operation Style

“This bag speaks to women of all ages. Chanel’s flap bag is essential in establishing yourself as a style icon. It’s soft and sexy structure are everything!” -Erica Domesek, Founder & CEO, P.S.- I Made This
