Jewelry Counterfeits: The Age-Old Problem Just Keeps Growing

The growing number of counterfeit jewellery has created a growing problem for consumers who can’t tell the difference.

Over the past decade, the rate of false jewellery has increased by over 400 per cent

This year alone, the UK has lost more than one million items of jewellery because they were fake – up on the previous year, when the figure was about 750,000.

It has become a £200m industry and a major cost to the economy.

That’s just a fraction of the £1.5 trillion of fake “imitation” items that are globally advertised to retail buyers, but have proven to be, in fact, almost impossible to sell.

The rise of online counterfeiters is also causing problems.

According to one estimate, one in five of the items sold on online stores as being authentic are fakes.

The problem is now threatening the UK’s crown jewel in the fashion world.

The British Royal Family have been increasingly targeted by counterfeit jewellery and fakes of their wedding rings are now frequently appearing on Ebay.

A popular piece of jewellery that can be easily replicated for the £20 price tag is the fake Michael Kors chain, which is now on sale on Ebay for as little as £4.25.

And last year, the UK was targeted by one jewellery faker who sold a diamond replica of the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding ring for £6,000.

It sold for £8,000, after a few successful bids.

But when it came to the real thing, the ring was sold for £1,600.

The UK’s crown jewel of fashion is also under threat in the jewellery and fine jewellery market.

Last year, a fake diamond ring was put up for sale on eBay for over £8,000.

A few months earlier, a fake diamond and ruby ring with a total value of £25,000 was sold on eBay. Some reports claim that a fake diamond ring of a similar value was sold for £3,500 in June last year.

The UK is also facing growing counterfeit jewellery of high-profile fashion items.
