At IconPrincess, we understand the importance of trust.
Buying used luxury goods is not easy. In fact, studies estimate that in the luxury handbag resale industry there are between 30% and 40% counterfeit items.
It is therefore essential that we have experts skilled in the art of authentication but also that we use state-of-the-art technology.
State-of-the-art means of authentication.
Since the styles and materials of iconic items have very often changed little, the bad actors have had plenty of time to perfect their fakes and produce excellent replicas today.
It is the reason why
visual inspection is no longer sufficient to distinguish the fake from the real!
Advanced technologies have become indispensable.
Also, to fight effectively against forgeries, beyond its own expertise, IconPrincess works closely with the best current luxury authentication service in the world..
The technology used is a very high-precision scanner and artificial intelligence linked to a database in which all the articles of the luxury designers are listed as well as their characteristics.
Our partner is a company supported by LVMH.
We are thus able to detect counterfeit items sold with almost 100% accuracy..
IconPrincess' guarantee of authenticity
Our authentication process is as follows:
1. We systematically moderate all the pictures of the ads placed by the sellers in order to make a first check before the articles are put on sale on our site.
2. When an item of €500 or more is purchased, IconPrincess offers you a complementary authenticity analysis
3. If the item complies, the Certificate of Authenticity will be issued by email and mail..
4. For items less than $500, you have the option to order this expertise from IconPrincess at your own expense for a fee of $20 regardless of brand.
