House of Harlow 1960: Fake from Real.

It has come to my attention lately that the number of "fake"/ "replica" House of Harlow 1960 products are on the rise. I usually buy my products on ebay due to the price of shipping however lately I have found it more and more difficult to actually find any genuine products there.
They are also popping up in boutiques and clothing shops everywhere.

These are just a few I have come across :- 
 





Some are almost identical where as others do look quite different, however it is important to remember the quality. Most of the fake items range from just $10 - $15 so that is the quality you pay for. Nicole's products are quality and will last you for a very long time. Also as a fan of Nicole I think it is really important to support her as a designer. 

I understand that some HOH products may be expensive for some fans but if you can save up just a little bit of money it really is worth it. 


So how do you tell a real product from the fake?

Usually the price is a very large giveaway but if you are unsure there are some other ways you can tell. 

 
All House of Harlow products have a stamp on them (above). If you are buying online ask for a picture of the stamp as proof it is genuine.

Also HOH products will come in a jewelery box with the same stamp on.
 
 
I really hope that you have found this blog useful in some way, if you are unsure of where to but genuine products from try www.miijo.com or www.shopthetrendboutique.com

WTF! Well, the cocktail ring maybe is similar,but How can they sell these things? Do they think we are stupid? I am very angry with what they have done

yeah I have been seeing this as well. It kind of breaks my heart seeing knock-offs of HOH1960 :(

The second photo with the necklace isnt that bad, that photo is actually from Forever21. Forever21 last year I think, got the idea of the resin necklace and that was their "copy" of it. BUt all the others look exactly like the real ones!!

Not all House of Harlow products have a stamp. I just bought the House of Harlow Cabochon Hoops from an authorised dealer and there is no stamp on them. There really is no surface area for it to fit.
