The first thing to do is look at the quality of the glasses (and the box, if they are new). If it does include a box, make sure everything is spelled right and that there are no printing quality issues.

Make sure your glasses say "Made in Italy". All Gucci sunglasses are made in Italy and are stamped. So if they say they're made from somewhere else, or aren't stamped at all, they're fake!

Next, scratch the logo or the "Made in Italy" on the stem with your nail. If they are real, the paint will not scratch off. If they do scratch off, or if it damages it at all, you can assume they are fake.

Next, make sure the Gucci model number is printed on the inner stem. If you don't see a model number, they're fake.

Now search for your model number on the internet and make sure the ones you find, with that model number, looks like yours. Sometimes the numbers of the counterfeits don't match up with the real ones.

Next, look at the hinges. You should never have hinges made of plastic and never have any screws attaching the hinges to the frame. You should also, for that matter, not find any screws on the glasses anywhere.

You also need to inspect the movement of the hinges. They should not be too tight or too lose. The stems should have fluid movement and not get stuck anywhere.

Next, If your Gucci sunglasses claim to be polarized, check for polarization. Put the sunglasses up to a computer monitor and rotate them back and forth. If the glasses are polarized you will see them turn dark.

Next, if your glasses have a nose pad, make sure the logo is engraved on the metal piece in the middle. If you have plastic frames you won't have this.
