Factors to Consider When Choosing an Engagement Ring

Buying an engagement ring is one of the largest and most important purchases that you will make in your lifetime. Invest into your future with a piece of jewelry that perfectly embodies your relationship. Be sure to consider the following when shopping for the perfect ring:

Budget

Although you do want to spend some money on this purchase, you also do not want to put yourself deeply in debt in order to buy it. Buy jewelry at the consignment store to get the quality that your soon-to-be fiancé deserves that still fits into your budget. Focusing your search on consign jewelry gives you the opportunity to find quality pieces that you can easily afford.

Cut, Color, Clarity, Carat

When shopping for a diamond, think about the 4Cs to choose a stone that really meets your needs. Think about the cut, which affects how brilliantly the diamond shines, the color, the clarity, which refers to imperfections on the surface, and the carat weight. If you can find a diamond that meets all of your qualifications in these four areas, you know it is a stone that is worth your time and money.

Style

One of the most important factors of choosing a diamond ring is finding something that really complements her personal style. Pay attention to the jewelry she wears on a daily basis to try to narrow down the selection and find something she really loves. Whether she has a classic style that is embodied in a round brilliant diamond or a trendy aesthetic that is demonstrated in a beautiful princess cut stone, you can find the perfect ring with some time and effort.

Come to Home Consignment Center’s Bay Area locations to find a ring that she cannot refuse. Our selection of consignment jewelry and furniture gives you what you need to buy items you love without breaking your budget. To learn more, visit us online or call (925) 272-0067.

When you consign furniture and jewelry, you get the chance to sell your unwanted items quickly and efficiently. If you are looking to clean out your home or earn a little bit of extra cash, use the following tips to optimize your consignment possibilities:

Clean Up Your Pieces

In order to get the most money for your pieces, you should take the time to clean them up and ensure that they look their best. If you are selling furniture, you should thoroughly vacuum the upholstery to get rid of dirt and dust that might ruin its aesthetic appeal.

Do Some Research on the Market

Before you put your items up for sale, you should do some market research to see what kinds of items are selling. You might want to go through the consignment shop to get a better understanding of the items for sale and their asking prices. This helps you decide if the items you plan to sell will have enough potential buyers.

Find a Quality Consignment Shop

Creative Ways to Store Jewelry at Home

Creative Ways to Store Jewelry at Home

Is your jewelry box getting a little too full? It’s easy to expand your jewelry collection when you shop at a consignment store. Since a consignment store can offer a selection ranging from everyday pieces to jewelry for special occasions, the only hard part of buying jewelry there is figuring out how to store it at home. If you’re running out of traditional ways to store your jewelry or you’re tired of everything getting tangled, use these tips for creative ways of storing your jewelry at home.

Shadow Boxes

When you’re in a rush to get ready for a date or a night out on the town, the last thing you want is to be fumbling through your jewelry box looking for your favorite necklace. Instead of using a jewelry box, hang a shadow box with hooks on your wall. Your necklaces will hang, making sure the chains stay untangled, and you’ll be able to see all of your options in front of you.

Chains

There are few things more frustrating than rooting through your jewelry box trying to find one missing earring. An easy fix for this is to hang a chain horizontally on your wall. That way, you can hang all of your pairs of earrings right next to each other, and you’ll be less likely to lose single earrings.

Jewelry Trees

If you are an appreciator of nature, you’ll love this idea for jewelry storage. Find a branch outside with a few arms and place it in a colorful vase on your dresser. You can hang necklaces and bracelets off of the arms, and even use it to store rings if the branches are narrow enough. This fun idea brings a little natural beauty into your daily routine.

Book Boxes

If you prefer having jewelry boxes but are tired of boring designs, you can get creative with them. Hollow out old or unwanted hardcover books and use the empty space to hold your jewelry. You can have different book boxes for earrings, rings, bracelets, and more.

You’ll be glad to have all of these jewelry storage options after a shopping trip to Home Consignment Center. Come in to one of our two Austin locations to find one-of-a-kind jewelry, accessories, and pieces for your home. Give us a call at (925) 309-7231 to learn more about buying from a consignment store.

Home Consignment Center – How to Buy Pearls

Monday, July 28th, 2014

How to Buy Pearls

Quality jewelry can be used for a variety of occasions and remains a part of your personal collection for many years. If you want to buy a classic piece that enhances every facet of your wardrobe, pearl jewelry is a great option. Keep reading for some tips on buying pearls.

Pay attention to the luster of the pearl. Quality pearls are those that seem to have an inherent shine that originates from somewhere within. If you are buying earrings or a ring, you should look for pieces with smaller pearls. If you want a necklace, however, larger pearls are a better and more aesthetically appealing option. Choose a style that complements the other pieces in your wardrobe so you can create a wide array of new outfits that work well together.

Come to Home Consignment Center to shop for pearls and other great pieces of jewelry. We offer an amazing selection of jewelry and furniture at hard-to-beat prices so you can always find the items you need. Call (818) 880-8331 to learn more about our jewelry and furniture selection in Calabasas.
