How do the Shades pass the test?
We know that shopping for pre-owned luxury items isn't easy and nothing will ruin your day faster than finding out that the glasses you bought on an auction or consignment website turns out to be a counterfeit.
We are trained professionals in distinguishing the “wanna-bes” from the “real deal.” Whether it's a Chanel, Ray-Ban or Gucci, determining the authenticity of an item is a mix of art and science. Items such as stampings, symmetry, hardware, authenticity stamps, as well as overall workmanship and materials are inspected and determined to be consistent with the manufacturer's established standards of quality. If applicable, manufacturer date codes and serial numbers are verified for consistency.
Lastly, the item is compared to on-hand authentic reference items.How do we check the authenticity of vintage pieces? All preloved designer pieces in our shop are checked for their authenticity by our brand experts. Authenticity features such as hallmarks are scrutinised to make sure counterfeiters don’t stand a chance.
