They say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but what if you could find diamonds and other gorgeous high quality and designer pieces at a fraction of the price? I would say a big fat yes to that and I’m sure most of you would too!
That’s exactly what I found at the DazzleMe jewelry section at the Home Consignment Center in Laguna Niguel. I’ve passed this center about a million times since it’s near a Walmart I frequent. And while I knew that it had consigned furniture and home goods, I never dreamt that it also carried a variety of luxury and designer vintage consigned jewelry.
I was amazed at the selection of engagement rings, statement rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings and even some one-off pieces like a vintage Tiffany perfume bottle. A woman had even just purchased a beautiful Canary diamond ring for $27,000 when I was there, so if you’re questioning the quality and selection of consigned jewelry, that right there should tell you the type of items they carry. They don’t carry any costume jewelry and all the pieces are appraised by their certified in-house gemologists.
Consigning items is easy. Make an appointment, get it appraised and get paid when someone purchases it. While anyone can consign with DazzleMe, several pieces come from estate sales, insurance companies and even celebrities. Many of the pieces are new while some, like a gold coin and diamond necklace, are over 100 years old.
