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, I just got a vintage Dior saddle in a pretty rare, oriental print. I am an amateur collector of vintage Dior saddles and so far, everything checks out for me when I referenced it against the other mini saddles that I have, but I just wanted to be extra sure/to check if this could be authenticated. :smile:

My seller told me she got it from a Japanese departmental store (It's called Takashimaya if anybody knows the store) based in Singapore and that detail was also reflected in the authenticity card. I have attached the pictures here. Please let me know if more pictures and details are needed!

P/S: Also, I tried to google the date/product code and seemed to have found the exact same design of this bag on a Japanese luxury consignment website (?) called BrandOff - https://www.brandoff-store.com/top/detail/asp/detail.asp?scode=2106800375428 Does anybody knows/recognise if this is an exclusive print as well? I'll be so grateful if anybody could pinpoint the exact print/design's name for me too haha!

Thanks so much in advance for any help!

Hi all, it’s my first time using purseblog! I’m interested in buying a preloved lady Dior bag! Could you please help to authenticate this bag?

The seller mentioned that she bought this in Italy 2013 and no authenticity card came with it.
