Are you purchasing a Gucci Marmont or Dionysus bag? Or may be it's a vintage Gucci that you're looking to finally acquire to your handbag collection?
The thrill of finding something really special comes hand by hand with the fear of wasting your money on a fake.
...if only all sellers were honest about the authenticity of the items they're selling.
Unfortunately, you have to stay alert all the time.
Gucci authenticity is tricky. The Italian fashion house that boasts a rich and controversial history (meaning: a wild variety of styles, serials and stamps), which makes vintage Gucci bag hard to authenticate.
Newer handbags don't make it easier. As Gucci is at the forefront of contemporary trends, counterfeiters are trying to copy everything. Among all luxury brands, Gucci superfakes are the hardest to tell.
Buyers of secondhand luxury goods know that counterfeiting is one of the major issues. Unfortunately, whenever you're purchasing an alleged authentic Gucci bag from a private seller on a large marketplace, you don't know who you are dealing with and whether this person is honest.

HOW OUR GUCCI AUTHENTICATION SERVICE WORKS
How to Tell A Real Gucci Bag from Fake?
A lot of our customers ask us this.
How can you authenticate a Gucci bag only by pictures? Are you guessing?
The answer is never. While we're responsible for the customer's money, we can never guess. To authenticate a Gucci or any other luxury brand's bag, together with our trained eyes we use specific checklists we have developed over years along with our database of over 10,000 authentic items and replicas. Unless we have at least 3 red flags, we never provide a verdict. If an item looks fine but something seems to be wrong, we look for evidence like a detective, doing multiple side-by-side comparisons to ensure we have proof.
The following aspects are checked in each authentication:
- Is the item a part of an existing Gucci collection?
- Was the item released in this print ever? When?
- Are the production years consistent with the item's production years?
- Is the serial number consistent with the item in question? [Gucci-specific]
- Do materials and the signs of wear look consistent with authentic items?
- Is there anything typical for the most up-to-date replicas on the pictures?
- Are the details of the handbag (leather, hardware, heat stamps, serial number) consistent with the same details on authentic handbags?
- If some details are not consistent with original items, can it be due to the item being some sort of exclusion / repair?
- If that's a purchase, does the listing / pictures suggest anything suspicious about the transaction in general?
After every aspect of the item is assessed, we provide a verdict on the Gucci item's authenticity.
