I thought these were authentic Made in Italy but they are Made in China........so disappointed!!!! How can I know these are authentic????? At first inspection there were what seemed like tiny black scratches on the gold part of the glasses but I wiped them with my thumb and those weird little marks are gone. Not sure what those were, maybe just some rubbing marks from the inside of the case.... They did arrive with the cloth wrapped inside a plastic. These are vday gift for my hubby and the made in china part really made me sad.........no wonder the part where made in china is written was a little blurry.....not sure if I ever will trust overstock again..
