There is a myriad of reasons not to buy fake jewellery. These four reasons will inspire you to buy the real thing.
High-quality jewellery can be very expensive, and so it makes sense why there is such a thriving market and high demand for fake jewellery. Many people have been tempted before to buy fake jewellery, but there are a number of reasons why you shouldn’t ever make the purchase. It’s much better to save your money and wait until you can afford the real thing than it is to purchase a counterfeit piece of jewellery for a number of reasons.

It Won’t Last
A real and high-quality piece of jewellery, such as those John Greed jewellery available online, will likely last for a long time. This is true no matter if you are buying a watch, jewellery, bracelets and charms, or rings. Fake jewellery, on the other hand, is usually made using the least expensive materials available on the market and is generally made with very low craftsmanship. This means that your new piece of jewellery will not last very long at all.
Even the best replica isn’t a substitute for the real thing, and when you wear your new counterfeit jewellery with pride there will be someone who will notice and who will likely call you out on your fake purchase. Not everyone will be able to tell that your new jewellery is fake, of course, but it will be obvious to a lot of people, which is embarrassing.
It’s a Waste of Money
You work hard for your money, and it doesn’t make sense for you to spend it on low-quality pieces of jewellery that will fall apart. When you buy fake jewellery, you are not making an investment in a piece that will last for a long time. Rather, you are simply hedging your bets that you will be able to get some wear out of the piece before it tarnishes or breaks.
You Cheapen the Industry
Real jewellery is made by craftsmen who have taken years to hone their craft and who work hard to produce the best jewellery in the world. When you buy and wear counterfeit pieces, you are actually damaging the jewellery industry. By doing so, you are ignoring the long history of quality jewellery and the skill required to make it.
The next time that you are tempted to buy a piece of fake jewellery, make sure that you understand the importance of saying no and instead saving money to buy a real piece. Not only will your jewellery last a lot longer, but you will be happier with the higher quality and the fact that you didn’t undermine the jeweller.
