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.

No. There are enough photos but not enough details to authenticate with. It could be a jewelry bag or a watch pouch.

Let me start by stressing that I'm not an authenticator. I just like solving mysteries. (:

When I saw your bag, I immediately thought it was a jewellery roll. Something like this:


Or this, which appears to be identical to yours in a different colour. The seller also calls it a jewellery roll (though of course they may be guessing).


However, two things bothered me. One, the hook. You don't typically see vintage jewellery rolls with hooks (though I'm sure they exist). Two, you don't state dimensions, but it looks as though your bag might be larger than a jewellery roll?

If so, perhaps it's something like this:


That one comes with the original swing tags, so we know that it's a hang-up lingerie organiser.

You're Hired! I measured and it is 29" x 16" just like the Jewelry Roll Organizer you posted.

I purchased a pair of Dior WALK'N'DIOR SNEAKER black cotton canvas from Poshmark. I’m 99% certain they are authentic but at the same time I don’t trust all Poshmark sellers. There are many good fakes out there. Frankly I don’t know if I would know the difference. My question is, the shoes have a faint black line through the name on the insole. My understanding is that they are purchased at discount prices. Does anyone know why or how this is done. I paid $680 for them and they look good. But I just don’t know how the seller is making money…if she’s selling them to me for 680 what did she pay for them to make a profit. This is the only reason I question their authenticity. Does anyone know?? Thanks for your help. I’ll post a picture of the shoes I got.

Hi, not an authenticator, but the code indicates the bag is from 2015 and that's not possible so it's a fake. You have four numbers, the first and third indicate the month or week, I forgot which one it is, the second and fourth the year.
