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.

I don’t know if I am right to jump into this conclusion, I’m definitely not an authenticator but I read through the posts that have been authenticated by averagejoe and found 1 thing about this bag that looks quite off for me: The letter M in the date code of this bag seems different from that of authentic bags and my other bags from Dior boutique as well, and I also found this post in which the bag is fake, and its date code has the same kind of letter M: https://forum.purseblog.com/threads/authenticate-this-dior.924508/post-34383578 I’m not sure if this is considered a ‘fake’ detail, because again I’m not an expert. I actually came to two authenticators and both used entrupy to check it because in SG resellers rely heavily on entrupy. 1 result is authentic and 1 is unidentified, that really scares me. I think I will try to return the bag then, this is giving me headache

I believe this is authentic. The M is not an indication of authenticity or inauthenticity in this case.

Hello dear Authenticators! I saw this Saddle bag at a local marketplace for quite a low price, so I have a suspicion that this bag might be not authentic. I’d appreciate your help!

Hi there, I just bought this saddle pouch. There is no dust bag or receipts. Is it authentic? The last 2 photos either look suspicious or the stud was customized at the right hand side. Thank you.
