DOUBLE AUTHENTICATION PROCESS
-Unlike other authenticators we only authenticate bags in person where we can see, feel, smell, touch and examine the bag. For multiple items we can come to you if you are based in or near Dublin.
-In order to authenticate your item, we use a 2 step process. Firstly, we inspect the item in house, we examine the items meticulously and up close with a jewellers loupe looking for any inconsistencies and anomalies.
-We then examine the exterior/interior date codes/stamps/serial numbers/logos/zips/inner lining and hardware using our Entrupy device.
-The Entrupy algorithms compares your images with a database of thousands of images to determine whether your item is authentic or not.
- We issue your authenticity certificate. You can look it up anytime on the Entrupy website if you misplace the certificate or if you need another copy. We offer a financial guarantee for all Entrupy verified items. We are one of only two retailers in Ireland using this technology.
- Buy with confidence with our double authentication process. 100% financial authenticity guarantee.
