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
