Did you know that jewelry is the second most counterfeited product in the U.S.? Fake jewelry accounts for 29% of total seized counterfeit goods last year, an increase of 169% from 2011. That’s why it is important that you only buy luxury jewelry items like Stephen Webster from authorized dealers. In fact, don’t buy a luxury item because it’s cheap. A sophisticated buyer knows signature jewelry comes with a hefty price because of their quality and exclusive design. If the “signature” is cheap, that’s your first clue that it may be contraband. Don’t buy it, not just because it makes you look cheap, but it hurts the economy of the whole country. Counterfeit items rob the country of taxes and job opportunities. Besides, nothing feels and looks like the genuine article, like a Stephen Webster butterfly accents.
Stephen Webster is available at Shreve & Co. in Portland, Oregon.
