If the woman of your dreams loves all things retro or vintage, then why not stick to that theme when shopping for the perfect engagement ring to put on her finger? Before popping the big question, consider visiting your local Roseville consignment furniture and jewelry store to explore all of the beautiful rings that evoke that old Hollywood romance style that your special lady is so fond of. Here is our guide to shopping for a vintage engagement ring:
Consider Your Sweetheart's Lifestyle
One of the first considerations to make when browsing through the jewelry selection at your Folsom consignment store is your future fiancée’s lifestyle. Many older rings that were produced earlier than the 1920's and 1930's are incredibly delicate and therefore not as well suited for a woman who is constantly on the go. Be sure to ask the consignment store employees about the nature of the ring's prongs and metal and their suggestions for caring for the item.
Examine Her Jewelry Box Before Shopping
Before you begin your hunt for the perfect vintage ring, try to browse through your partner's jewelry box or carefully take note of the jewelry items she wears most frequently. You can even snap a photo of some of her current vintage jewelry items to bring to the consignment shop with you. If examining her jewelry drawer doesn't help enough, then bring her sister or a best friend along with you to the store.
Embrace Bolder Diamond Colors
Many vintage jewelry lovers are embracing the look of a colored diamond engagement ring these days. This hot trend features timeless colored stones in shades of light brown and light yellow. Another look you may want to surprise your loved one with is a vintage ring that combines colored diamonds with traditional white diamonds.

One of the biggest complaints that many vintage jewelry owners have about their favorite pieces is that they are difficult to keep clean over time. Fortunately, as you will see in this video, there are plenty of simple techniques that can be used to keep antique pieces sparkling for years to come. For example, if you have a delicate piece of silver that you want to restore or brighten up, simply wash it using a solution of water mixed with baking soda. The solution can be applied using a soft-bristle toothbrush.

The right consignment furniture can completely transform the look of your bathroom without costing an arm and a leg. Even if you just want to add flair and personality to the bathroom with a few accessories, Home Consignment Center has the perfect options for you. Here are some accessories we recommend for a beautiful bathroom.
Hanging items on your bathroom walls is an easy way to give the room a major style update. To give your bathroom a personal touch, hang framed photographs on the walls. Hanging a mirror will not only add style and function to the bathroom, but will also allow you to enhance the lighting and certain design elements.
Storage and Seating
Storage space and places to sit are two of the most frequently overlooked aspects of bathroom décor. Decorative storage units can provide a surface upon which to place bathroom décor and ample space for all of your bathroom necessities. Consider a dresser or wall-hung shelving unit if you need plenty of storage, or a table if you the surface space is more important. You may also want to invest in a love seat or an antique-style chair from your local consignment shop to add vintage style to the bathroom.
The bathroom may seem like an odd place for glassware, but there are many glass accessories you can use to give your bathroom a simple design boost. For example, vases and apothecary jars give a bathroom upscale appeal. Fresh flowers in a simple vase placed on your bathroom table or dresser can create a special ambience that you won’t find in most other bathrooms.
A colorful or intricate rug adds personality and vibrancy to any room. Adding a colorful rug to the bathroom is especially beneficial if you have a small bathroom, as the color of the rug will expand the perceived space of the room. When cleaned routinely, a rug can also do wonders to keep your bathroom and flooring dry.

With the beautiful weather we have in the springtime in Sacramento, it’s easy to neglect spring cleaning in favor of enjoying the outdoors with friends and family. If you skipped spring cleaning, don’t worry—summer cleaning is also a great option! Summer is an ideal time to clean your home, as it serves as a great excuse to stay cool and comfortable indoors when it’s hot outside. As you are cleaning, gather any furniture, jewelry, and accessories you no longer want and take them to your local consignment store where they can be sold. Not only will this let you remove clutter in your home this summer, but you’ll also make some extra cash that can be used to upgrade your furniture.
