How to Authenticate Christian Dior Necklaces

“Don't buy much but make sure that what you buy is good.”- Christian Dior

 

I have been asked many times to advise on how to spot a fake Dior Necklace, especially now that it is so popular and expensive.  If you know Dior well it is easier to spot a fake - the weight must feel substantial, the workmanship is of the highest class, and the signature must be authentic (see below).

Understated elegance. Usually, the necklace features a CD or D logo pendant at the end of the chain, followed by the extender used to adjusted the length. Some necklaces do not have the extender but they always have the CD or D logo pendant. 

Markings

Markings in the authentication process are extremely important. Actually One of the trustworthy factors that can verify jewellery is hallmarks. These are sort of official stamps that In some cases can help you to how the age of the necklace, it also notifies the place from where the piece was procured. When you are buying vintage or antique ornaments, hallmarks can be of huge help in getting you the original piece. There are many ways to identify and find the meaning of hallmarks.

Most Christian Dior Jewelry is dated, and there are variations of the signature from 1947- to the present. Occasionally, their jewellery is marked ‘Made in France,’ but collectors often have to rely on familiarity with a particular designers’ style and preferred materials to decide who a piece is by.

Dior pieces were commissioned by the leading lights of the day including Henry Schriener, Mitchell Maer, Copppola e Toppo, Sam Kramer, Robert Goosens and Josette Gripoix. In fact, pieces marked '"Christian Dior by Kramer". "Dior by Kramer" or "Kramer for Dior" bellowed to the Sam Kramer era or In the 1950s, the jewellery was marked ‘Dior West Germany’; or ‘Made in Germany for Christian Dior’

With Christian Dior Jewelry becoming more and more collectable, it is worth investing in jewellery from this house. If you love the Christian Dior aesthetic and want to own a piece of fashion and jewellery history have a look at our Dior necklaces or to our Reworked Dior jewellery.
