Auth check: Chanel Earrings

Can anyone help with the authenticity of these? They made it into my house to be fixed.. and I'm not going to bother if they arent real

I'm not an expert by ANY means, but IMO those look really cheaply made for Chanel...

its possible my photos suck too.. they actually look pretty crappy in these pics. I may need to bust out the good camera, instead of my pocket one.

I would say fake just because it looks like a few stones have fallen out. I am not an expert though.

I wouldn't call them fake because the stones have fallen out. I have the exact pair, I had to take back to the Chanel boutique to get fixed because the backs became loose and both the auth stamps on the back fell off! I think the flash just makes them look a bit off. You can probably get more help over at TPF. A closeup of the stamp on the back will probably be good too for authentication purposes.

There are no missing stones. I took some more pics, but havent added them here.

They wont auth them at tpf because they arent being sold online (??) theyll only do auction/store links.

I think its to help buyers, not sellers.. There was another member asking for an auth check on something she picked up locally and they refused to do the check saying theyd only check online sales.

TPF is a clusterfuck of stuck up retards. Missing stones is not an indication of a fake. Most Chanel costume jewelry is poorly made and not meant for regular wear. A little surprising since they mark the price up about 500% over what the pieces are actually worth.

I would like to see a clear, closeup of the stamp on the back. What is going on with the center of the earring on the right? It looks like glue.

I will get some more pics when I get home.

Its super glue, pretty sure of it. One of my friends broke the post and thought it would be stellar to super glue it back on................. So they came to me to get fixed because I have mad soldering skills. (and silver solder) they were a clusterfuck themselves with what she did to them. I got most of it cleaned off, though... I just wasnt going to bother if they werent real.
