Designer Handbag Authentications

Jill's Consignment started providing designer handbag authentications in 1998. Our authentications have been accepted by PayPal, EBay, credit card companies and insurance companies. We stopped providing authentication services in 2007 in order to focus 100% on our main business, consignment of pre-owned designer bags. However, we're tired of seeing you unknowingly spend your hard earned money on a counterfeit bag, and decided to once again provide authentications.

We will authenticate any pre-owned Louis Vuitton, Chanel or Gucci bag that you are considering purchasing or have already purchased from any auction site, other resale website, or any resale and consignment brick & mortar stores. Authentications of pre-owned bags by the brands listed above are of our professional opinions. Our professional opinions come from over 23 years of experience in buying and selling pre-owned designer handbags by the brands listed above, and by familiarizing ourselves with the manufacturers established standards throughout the years.


Our fee for an immediate authentication is $15. This is a simple yes it is authentic or no it isn’t authentic answer.

Send an email to In the subject line, put "immediate authentication". Provide the auction number, or a link to the item, or provide photos of the item. Please also provide us your PayPal email address so that we can send you an invoice. Once paid, we will let you know if the item is or is not authentic. We will try to provide an answer within 12 hours of your request and if made during business hours it can usually be provided immediately.

We may need more information from you and if so we will contact you. If for any reason we are unable to provide you an authentication, your payment will be refunded. Payments are NOT refundable based on the decision of authenticity/non-authenticity we provide you. Payments are only refunded if we unable to provide an authentication.
