How to Identify Authentic Juicy Couture Handbags

Juicy Couture products are hot, not to mention, expensive. Like all other expensive bags, such as Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton and Coach, there are plenty of fakes on the market. To be certain you are buying an authentic bag, check out these tips on how to identify fake Juicy Couture handbags.


Examine the hardware. Any metal hardware on an authentic Juicy Couture bag are heavy copper or gold colored metal and have a Juicy trademark engraved on them such as the word "Juicy," a heart, a Scottish Terrier
or the letter "J." If a bag has plain hardware, it's a fake.


Check the leather. All Juicy bags are made of 100 percent cowhide leather. This leather is soft to the touch and doesn't have a sheen to it. Fake leather bags are shiny and are hard and rough to the touch.


Look closely at the leather "J" heart. Most Juicy bags have a leather heart with the letter "J" embossed into it. This means the "J" is raised and sticks up from the heart. All bags without the embossed letter "J" are not authentic Juicy bags. If the bag is designed with a flat "J," check out the stitching detail. The stitches should be close together.


Inspect the inside. The inside of all Juicy Couture bags are made of 100 percent cotton. Fakes are often made of nylon or some other cheap material.

Tips & Warnings

Always ask a lot of questions. If you're buying a Juicy bag from an online auction site, be sure to ask the seller questions like where the bag came from. Also read any available feedback on the seller.

Never rely on the serial number. Serial numbers on Juicy bags come printed on a piece of paper and are not embossed in the bag anywhere. Fake Juicy bag sellers easily print a bunch of numbers on paper and stick it in the bag. Just because it has a serial number doesn't make it authentic.
