How to spot a FAKE vs REAL/AUTHENTIC Hawaiian fish hook, fish hook pendant, fish hook necklace

Hawaiian Necklace

When looking to buy a Hawaiian Necklace you want to make sure it’s authentic. Your probably wondering, “How can I tell if the Hawaiian Necklace I’m about to purchase is authentic or mass produced?” Here, let me show you a few tips on how find out if the Hawaiian Necklace you’re about to buy is authentic and hand made by a local artist in Hawaii.

1. Read the About section of the online website featuring Hawaiian necklaces. If the author reveals themselves as I do here on my website you can get a good idea of who they are. Look for quality pictures or a video that explains what they do. When you look at the pictures or video search into the background and see if really looks like Hawaii.

2. Examine the pricing. If an artist is pricing their work very low and claiming to make it, most likely they are not. There is no way someone can spend all day or more to make a piece and sell if for under $100 while living in Hawaii. The cost of living is too high and the days of living in a hut are over. If they say it’s hand made make sure it’s hand made by them and not made in another country where they can purchase cheap labor.

3. Look closely at the design and lashing. If you see it’s shiny and has a fake tint most likely it was produced in China. If the lashing looks like any necklace featured on this site it is authentic. However, if you are having trouble determining which fish hook necklace you want to buy is real give me a call or send an email and I can help you buy an authentic Hawaiian Necklace from my site.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post and hope that helps you to find the best Hawaiian necklace for you.
