From the PS thread (the poster wanted to purchase a Cartier item, but was hesitant as she wasn’t sure it was authentic):

“Yesterday I sent him an email regarding my concerns with the authenticity of this ring. He replied:

“I have dealt with this many times with people. Cartier (NYC Store) can verify….but it takes along time and is very expensive(Typical Cartier). So unless you are dealing with a very expensive vintage piece it is better to have it looked at by a high end jeweler. One time I had a customer go to the NYC main store and they sent him to a jeweler around the corner because it was: As I said too expensive and time consuming. Can you believe Cartier sent them to someone else.100% Guranteed Cartier……RJ”

I called Cartier”s customer service line today and, sure enough, the authentication service was pricey, to the tune of $1200, and she said it could take anywhere from 3 weeks to 6 months.”

May I ask why she’s so concerned?  It’s a lovely band, unless she’s planning to sell it, I’m not sure why the authenticity even matters?

@MissNoodles:  It is! But if it’s a Cartier band, the appraisal will be higher and therefore affect any insurance she’d want to take out on her band – just in case!

@Anna22:  Hi Anna! I actually wrote that post for RLJ 🙂 I’m going to e-mail my boss this picture to see if he can tell. The other brides who suggested it just might be a piece from an older collection are definitely right. Cariter’s site only has their current collections online. I’m not familiar with this style, but hopefully my boss will be able to give you a little more insight.
