Hermes® Belts™ for men and women. How to Determine Real vs.
Many of us covet designer items. Designer items are known to possess superior quality that other
brands cannot offer. Furthermore, designer items are considered as investment pieces as they do not
depreciate fast and can be sold at a good price still after a few years. One of the most popular and most
coveted designer brands is Hermes.
If you want to save yourself from ordering the wrong Hermes item and want only authentic belts, here is
how you determine the real from the fake:
– Packaging – one of the most apparent ways to tell if a Hermes belt is real or fake is through its
packaging. The packaging of a real Hermes is orange and is tied by a black ribbon with the H logo
embedded on it. Fake belts are in a different packaging and usually come without a box.
– Buckle – another obvious way to check for authenticity is the buckle of the belt. Examine it closely
and you will see the huge difference. It is actually advised to bring a magnifying glass to help you further
inspect the buckle. The metal of a real Hermes does not have any tarnishing or chipping. It shines
brilliantly; as if blinding you. The edges should also be smooth and no casting marks are visible.
Hermes buckles are also made of genuine of 24k gold plated over either gold or palladium (the latter is
a kind of platinum). Therefore, if the signs of wear on the buckle do not resemble the color of the metals
used, it is a sign that the belt is inauthentic or fake.
