Authenticity is paramount at L&M. We have in-house professionals in leatherwork and luxury goods, who carefully inspect each and every item to ensure its authenticity. 

Unlike other places, we examine an item through scientific tools, not by feeling! The examination method is included but not limited to visual review of pertinent markings, numbers, logos, and other fine details using scientific instruments such as X-Ray Fluorescence Analyzer, loupe/microscope, vernier caliper, precision gauge, e.g. to render our opinion.

Our fine and designer jewelry collections are curated by an in-house expert who holds Applied Jewelry Professional™ (AJP) and Diamonds Graduate credential from the world-renowned Gemological Institute of America, and is a standing member of GIA® Alumni Association and Canadian Gemological Association. Our in-house expert also attended the MasterValuer Program to ensure that our valuation is conformed with the industry standard.


We have never missed a single case! So you can shop with confidence!

L&M’s authentication process is unique to L&M and independent of any brands. Brands identified are not involved in the authentication of the products being sold, and none of the brands sold assume any responsibility for any products purchased from or through the website. Brands sold on L&M are not partnered or affiliated with L&M in any manner. However, L&M fully cooperates with brands and provincial and federal agencies seeking to track down the source of counterfeit items, which includes revealing the contact information of consignors submitting counterfeit goods.

Counterfeit goods

L&M does not accept counterfeit merchandise of any kinds. If we determine that a submitted consignment is not authentic, it will not be returned to the consignor and will be destroyed.
