How to Spot A Fake Bulgari Serpenti Forever Bag

It has become a crucial topic for every bag lover to discern the authenticity of designer handbags. This blog post will take you to a quick comparison between real and fake Bulgari Serpenti Forever Bag, providing you with authentication guides and techniques.


Snakehead Clasp


  • Snake eyes are made of Malachite, and since the patterns on each natural gemstone are unique, it’s normal for the textures of the left and right eyes to differ.
  • Onyx scales are evenly and neatly colored, without any spillover.
  • The craftsmanship of the inlay is exquisite.
  • Edges are polished smoothly without any gaps.


  • The snake eyes often use materials like acrylic, plastic, or resin, and they typically lack shine and have rough craftsmanship.
  • The eye patterns are uniform, and the inlay work is poorly done, resulting in noticeable gaps.
  • Often have irregular and uneven enamel edges on the snakehead.
  • May even exhibit color spillover and a lower level of gloss.




  • Authentic hardware buckles have deep, clean engravings with flawless lettering, a smooth surface, and a moderate level of reflection. 


  • In contrast, fake ones often have incorrect colors due to the outer plating layer, which results in a glaring shine.
  • Additionally, they have skewed and irregular fonts, along with rough craftsmanship.




  • The “V” has a thicker left side and a finer right side. 


  • Have fonts that don’t match the authentic craftsmanship and an overall thicker and larger appearance.




  • The inner tag logo matches the font of the leather label.


  • Have rough craftsmanship, irregular spacing between the letters, and fonts that do not match.

    I love Bulgari’s bags and their watches. The fine leather and elegant without loud logo. I bought a tan bag at a Bulgari’s boutique shop while vacationing with my then, boyfriend in Malaga. He bought a watch. These boutique shops know how to encourage their customer to buy by offering cold champagne while you shop. When we’re buzzed, we buy LOL.
    I spotted a lady wore this gorgeous green Bulgari Serpent at a check out while shopping for Thanksgiving dinner. It looked stunning in person.

    Anyone seen any Bvlgari rep in the Forest Emerald color?

      I’ve seen it in most sellers who have Bvlgari. I would just find your preferred seller who carries Bvlgari and ask.

        Thanks! I’ve seen it in the regular leather, but I haven’t noticed it in the emerald snakeskin. I’ll take another look!

          If you don’t see it in your favorite seller’s album, you can always send a picture of the original and ask.
