Should one of your items be questioned in this thread, you are welcome to provide additional pictures or materials supporting its authenticity.

Do not handle your disputes with other members in this thread but take your differences to Private Messages. Failure to do so can result in banning.

Please utilize the "Quote" feature when responding directly to another post.

NOTE: The PurseForum requests that only members with an extensive knowledge of the brand and authenticating who have over 500 posts participate as authenticators in this AT thread. The moderators reserve the right to remove authentications that do not meet these requirements.

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.

First thank you ladies for all the hard work!

If it’s possible to authenticate this listing I would be very grateful. Thank you!

Would be my first Dior. Hopefully not my last.

Pictures can't be zoomed into, and are quite small for authentication. Plus date code is needed.

Hi all! I’m new to this forum. Would like to seek everyone expertise on this. I have purchased a dior mini lady from a reseller who originally purchased it from Dior boutique in Milan. However the authenticity card looks different from those authenticity cards that I have for other range of dior bags whereby it will indicate the dior outlet and date of purchase. The authenticity card that was provided to me is as per attached with no white boxes to reflect the dior stamp and the date of purchase. Is the card authentic?

Some of the authenticity cards are like that now. But this doesn't mean your bag is authentic or fake. Please post pictures as per the guidelines in post 1 of this thread if you wish to have your bag authenticated.

Hello! I've just purchased my very first Saddle Bag from The RealReal, and the bag looks beautiful and authentic in person.

Prior to receiving the purse, I called TRR, they indicated that the bag would not have an authentication card or duster. To my surprise it ended up coming with both, and upon further inspection the authentication card appears to be fake as it included a care card that is specific to shoes.

I'd greatly appreciate your insight here, TRR is explaining that the bag is authentic but they accidentally put in the wrong authentication card. Linked above is the website link from TRR and attached are photos.

Can you please post more details of the bag, including of the front of the label inside, of the CD hardware (front and back)? Can you also take a photo of the front of the authenticity card straight on, instead of from an angle?

The shoe card doesn't belong there but the authenticity card belongs to this bag.
