Our policy: Guaranteed Authenticity with 100% Money-Back Assurance

At Parallel Luxury, we take authenticity very seriously and guarantee the legitimacy of every item listed in our shop. We understand the importance of safeguarding our reputation, and that's why we promise to refund 100% of your money if an item is proven to be inauthentic.

We take pride in our experienced team of authenticators, who specialize in luxury goods authentication and have decades of industry expertise. Each item listed on our website goes through a rigorous multi-point inspection process by at least two authenticators. We firmly believe that integrity is always more important than profit, and we never compromise on that principle.

How We Authenticate
Our authentication process involves an in-person inspection of each item, leaving no detail unexamined. We meticulously scrutinize every aspect, from craftsmanship, materials, stitching, metals, weight, labels, logos, fonts, engravings, stitch count, holograms, and serial numbers, to verify the age and era of each item. Our extensive research and comparisons with the original dimensions and weight of items further assist in our authentication process.

Materials are a critical factor in determining an item's legitimacy. Luxury brands like Hermes and Goyard are known for their top-quality craftsmanship, and we know what to look for. We have ample experience authenticating a wide range of luxury items, including designer handbags, jewelry, watches, belts, sunglasses, clothing, skins, furs, and trend accessories. We've seen designer works from various decades, and our expertise in identifying minor details makes us confident in our 100% authenticity guarantee.

With experience comes knowledge, and we can pinpoint when an item was originally designed, which helps us verify date codes, serial numbers, styles, materials, markings, labels, logos, colors, or patterns that an item should have. For example, Hermes uses specific colors for their leather for specific years. If you're a high-end client at Hermes, that rule does not apply, but the handbag would have a unique stamp. Our authentication experience, coupled with our knowledge of minor details, is what sets us apart from the rest.

Fine jewelry pieces receive a written appraisal by a professional jeweler, ensuring accurate authentication.

Why it's Important
As a small business, we have complete control over our authentication process, leaving no room for oversight or a lack of experience. Many consignment and resale shops, including TheRealReal, employ copywriters to authenticate items, resulting in errors due to a lack of experience. Shopping for luxury items on platforms like Ebay, Etsy, Poshmark, etc. can be risky, as counterfeit items abound. We have authenticators authenticate, ensuring that our customers receive only genuine luxury items.

Quality and brand matter, and where you choose to spend your money makes a difference. We stand against the counterfeit industry and its support for human trafficking, the drug trade, and illegal weapons. You may think there's little harm in purchasing counterfeit items, but there's a negative chain reaction that goes beyond one's personal gain, and it's illegal to sell them, even secondhand.

With the proliferation of counterfeit items online, shopping for preowned luxury has become increasingly challenging. We understand the anxiety and concerns that can arise from such transactions, and that's why we offer our customers peace of mind. You can shop with us with the utmost confidence, knowing that we only sell authentic items. At Parallel Luxury, we are not affiliated with or represent any brand in any way, shape, or form, and all registered trademarks remain the property of their respective owners.
