The Cartier logo on the lenses is etched or stamped. It has a texture that counterfeiters do not bother to replicate.

Most counterfeiters do not include the logo on the nosepiece because it is an interior detail that many overlook. The Cartier double C should be stamped on the inside of both nose pieces.

Finally, the Cartier logo on the temple inserts is made of gold and is hand-engraved. The writing and gold plate are always centered on authentic glasses. Imitations are detectable if they are not centered or not made of real gold.
