Did you know that your Sacramento consignment store is a great place to purchase the perfect diamond ring for your future fiancé? Each Home Consignment Center location, from Roseville to Folsom, carries a wide selection of beautiful, romantic, and stylish engagement rings that your sweetheart is sure to swoon over. Read on to learn about the latest engagement ring trends.

Setting Stones Horizontally

It’s impossible to open up a bridal magazine these days without noticing the many beautiful engagement rings that are set “east to west,” where the diamond sits horizontally. This stylish trend applies to a variety of diamond shapes, from marquis cut to emerald cut. If your partner is particularly fashionable, then look for east to west center stones that are framed by smaller diamonds for that extra wow factor.

 Turning to Yesteryear for Inspiration

Another engagement ring trend that looks like it’s here to stay is the inclusion of vintage-inspired details in the setting of the stone and its cut. According to jewelry and bridal fashion experts, rings that date back to the roaring ‘20s, as well as those that simply look like they could fit in with the fashions of that era, are wildly popular and are particularly appropriate for women who enjoy feminine and classic designs.

 Embracing Non-Traditional Colors

If the woman you’re planning on proposing to is a true trendsetter, then she will surely love an engagement ring from a Sacramento consignment store that features a colored diamond or gemstone. From pink tourmaline to blue sapphires, colors are popping up on the hands of many famous and fashion-forward women these days.

Home Consignment Center carries a beautiful selection of modern and timeless engagement rings for you to choose from. We’re also proud to serve as the Sacramento area’s best resource for quality consignment furniture.

What You Need to Know Before Purchasing an Engagement  Ring

Nothing is more exciting than asking your special someone for her hand in marriage. Before you pop the question, you will need to find the perfect engagement ring! Shopping at a consignment store is a great way to find a ring that works with your budget and her personality. If you are getting ready to start the search for a ring, consider these elements first:

Your Budget

Many future grooms want to buy a ring as soon as they decide to propose. Start your search for the perfect engagement ring by setting a budget. It is important to know how much you are willing to spend before you start looking for rings; otherwise, you run the risk of spending more than you can afford. Sit down to look over your financial situation, and determine how much you are comfortable spending. Find budget-friendly options by shopping at a consignment store.

Her Ring Size

Ring size is one of the most important aspects to consider when shopping for this special piece of jewelry. If you want to be able to place the ring on her finger right after she says yes, you will need to choose the right size! Grab one of her other rings when she is not home and use a string to measure it. Go online to find out what size the measurement corresponds to; then, head to the consignment store.

Her Style

You should have a pretty good idea of the type of jewelry your girlfriend usually wears. Think about these pieces before you start shopping for an engagement ring. Create a list of jewelry style elements that she likes, and bring this list to a consignment store. Traditional jewelry stores carry mostly modern pieces, but consignment stores offer a wide variety of styles and designs.

The Home Consignment Center offers a wonderful selection of engagement rings and other jewelry pieces. Contact our Calabasas store at (818) 880-8331 for more information about our consignment process.
