With the glut of selling platforms on the internet, from unauthorised websites and popular auction sites to local selling sites on social media, the risk of buying a piece of PANDORA jewellery which is not genuine, has never been higher. Many of these items may even be supplied in authentic packaging, which will be perfectly genuine even though the contents are not.
Many fake websites will use PANDORA logos and stock images taken from genuine sites, so always check contact information, FAQs (frequently asked questions) and Terms and Conditions. Many fake sites will be written in poor English and all official retailers are only allowed to post products within their own country.
John Greed Jewellery is an official online retailer for PANDORA, proud to offer the best quality, genuine products. When buying online, always shop with an official online retailer. If in doubt, check the authentic PANDORA website where you will find a list of official retailers. As all Official retailers within a country will have the same set prices, beware of highly discounted prices and remember that if something seems too good to be true, it usually is!
