Dear fellow Dior enthusiasts,

It is always our pleasure to help with your authentication requests; however, there have been various cases where such requests are not accompanied by basic requisite information. To that end, nataliam1976, LaMissy and I have agreed on the following guidelines and tips to streamline the authentication process.


Authentication guidelines/tips

1. All eBay authentication requests should be posted in this format:

Item name:
Item number:
Seller ID:
Direct URL link:

This format is adopted from the Hermès authentication thread. It is the most efficient way of making a request because:

(a) the item name immediately alerts the one of us with the most expertise to attend to that particular type of item,
(b) the inclusion of the item number facilitates a search of the thread for previous instances where it may already have been authenticated, and
(c) the seller ID is useful where we know of reputable resellers on eBay that sell only authentic items.

All authentication requests for other online resellers should be posted in this format:

Item name:
Online reseller name:
Direct URL link:

All authentication requests must be formatted in one of the above ways otherwise they may not be entertained.

2. Authentication can only happen when there are plenty of clear, closeup photos of the item, the more the better.

In particular, items cannot be authenticated without clear, closeup photos of both sides of the inside leather tag for bags or, in the case of wallets and other small leather goods, the 'Christian Dior Paris' stamp on the inside as well as the production sequence stamp found behind one of the bill compartments or card slots.

In addition, photos of any relevant hardware should also be provided, the more the better. In the case of Gauchos, clear closeups of both sides of the coin medallion lying flat (not at an angle), the key and the buckles are needed. For Saddles, a straight-on frontal shot of the entire bag (not at an angle), clear closeups of both sides of the 'CD' links on the strap, and the dangling 'D' charm on the flap.

Sunglasses cannot be authenticated without clear closeups of the insides of both of the arms.

All photos should be taken in plenty of natural lighting (sunlight) without flash. Clear closeups may be obtained by using the macro mode (the icon of a flower) on a digital camera. Photos should not be resized below 800x600 resolution.

Authentication requests which comply with the formatting requirement in part 1 but which otherwise fail to include these photo requirements may not be entertained.

3. In most cases, unless there are dead giveaways and obvious red flags, jewellery cannot be authenticated, even with plenty of photos. This is to do with the nature of Dior jewellery. Please therefore understand that we may not be able to help you with a jewellery authentication request.

4. Patience is a virtue. Do not re-post your request repeatedly just because another person's request has been attended to before yours. This may be because at the time there was no one with the requisite expertise to authenticate your item; this does not mean you are being ignored.

5. Courtesy is also a virtue. Please and thank-you are basic manners and good forum etiquette.

Hi @averagejoe ! Would you be able to help me authenticate this mini lady dior from Japan? Selling at a really good price (slightly unbelievable) yet with the authenticity card, so just wanted to check. Thank you so much!

Hi averagejoe,

I’ve been on the lookout for a Dior vintage mini bag, and would you authenticate it for me? Thank you for your help!

Item name: Christian Dior Romantic Trotter Small Hand Bag Beige Italy
Item number: 324560266680
Seller ID: fashionhappens
Direct URL link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Christian-Dior-Romantic-Trotter-Small-Hand-Bag-Beige-Italy/324560266680
I believe this is authentic. All of the leather piping on the edge has worn off on this bag. The edges aren't supposed to look like that.

Hi @averagejoe
please could you help me authenticate this purse/wallet. I won this in an Ebay Bid however I am doubting the authenticity as the date code says MC 0023 and after doing some research it seems as though Dior products normally come in a 2 number 2 letter 4 number format.

Item name: authentic Dior vintage mini monogram shoulder bag
Item number: 184741644601
Seller ID: nichi-7284

Thanks!

Not sure about this one. There is nothing wrong with the date code. I have never seen this particular monogram fabric before, and I know my products from the time of the date code very well.

Thanks for your reply Joe, I haven't purchased this yet so this is good to know! I am equally uncertain, as I have never seen the logo embossed/debossed on these products before nor have I seen this particular style of wallet/purse.

Thanks for your help @averagejoe. I didn’t realize the piping was in that bad of shape and am glad you pointed it out. I’ll need to think over this bag more.
I suggest not getting this style. Strangely all of the ones on the pre-owned market have this wear. I think they chose a leather that is way too delicate to be paired with such a hard-wearing canvas.

Hi Averagejoe,
Please can you help authenticate my abcdior?
The dust bag is off with stitching and the dior logo is not aligned in centre and so I am questioning the bag's authenticity! :sad:

Hello, appreciate any help in advance in authenticating this bag. :smile: Everything looks and feels good irl, but it's the Dior engraving underneath the zipper that got me a little confused. Is it supposed to read "Dior" or "Christian Dior" for this series of bag?

Thank you in advance!
