There is something about a pair of Gucci sunglasses that leave you looking better and feeling very sophisticated and glamorous even if you are jut dressed in a pair of ripped denim shorts and a slouchy v-neck shirt. Of course, the glam factor of wearing these sunglasses comes with a price – several hundred dollars, to be exact. After the hefty price tag, many women will agree that it is absolutely worth a month's allowance or your grocery bill for two weeks. Since they are more than willing to spend that much money on a pair of Gucci sunglasses, they bought to know what to watch out for so they do not buy fakes. Fake Gucci sunglasses are quite rampant – in fact, the quality is on the good side so it takes a keen eye and know-how to spot the real thing from the fake one. There are, of course, several tried and tested tips that will help you determine if those fabulous landscapes are indeed the real thing or not.
Buy Original Where Original Is
The most obvious place to buy your Gucci sunglasses is, of course, at the regular Gucci store. This will ensure that you are buying the original stuff. Failing that, you should buy from the mall's department store or at a sunglasses shop. These places consign the original designer Gucci sunglasses so you know you are paying the right price for the right pair. Now, if you are interested in buying them somewhere else to score discounts there are some things you need to take note of.
If you are buying Gucci sunglasses online, it is important that the seller provides several real and close-up pictures of the actual pair. Most unscrupulous online scammers will lift pictures off the internet or provide blurry pictures; in these cases there is a higher likelihood that you are paying for fakes.
Second, always ask if you can see the merchandise in person. This may be a bit time-consuming, but hey – if you can spend two hundred dollars on Gucci sunglasses you can most certainly spring for ten dollar gas to check it out, right? Beside, most genuine sellers will readily agree to meet up to check up the goods prior to buying it.
Once you have the goods in your hands, check the labels. The paint should be in place without any extra marks. The case must be genuine leather with a good embossed logo on it. The card and certification it comes with (and it SHOULD come with it) should be printed in high quality cardboard and should not have any Chinese characters on them. If available, ask to see the receipt if you are buying second hand. You can also check the product code and have it authenticated by a real Gucci shop to know if you are going to buy original eyewear. When it comes to expensive Gucci sunglasses, these tips will certainly come in handy.
