Dude, you got ripped off, and badly. The warning signs: 1) The seller never claims authenticity. As if that makes selling fakes not unethical. 2) Brioni is not engraved in the Brioni cursive. Besides that, the engraving is of poor quality. A good engraver will do his best to smooth off the edges. This looks like one of those cheap jobbies you can get at the mall. Go to Tiffany's and see how much better engraving can be done. 3) Sorry man, but what were you thinking. That is one ugly set of cufflinks, with no handiwork, and obviously made in a cheap cast - Look how imprecise and not sharp the edges are. Besides, the style is not even typically Brioni. The Barney's tag is a nice touch too. It might also be faked. On real Barney's tags, the price is written at the bottom of the tag, in a smaller black font (a Helvetica serifs, I think.) I've seen lots of fake Sak's tags, so I wouldn't be surprised.
