Whether you are buying or selling jewelry, a basic understanding of industry terminology helps you get the best pieces at the best prices. The difference between karats and carats is one of the most commonly misunderstood aspects of buying and selling jewelry.
A carat is used when referring to diamonds and other gemstones to describe the weight of the stone. One carat is equal to 200 milligrams. A karat, on the other hand, is used when describing gold. A piece that is made up of 24 karats is pure gold. A piece that is 18 karats is 18 parts gold and 6 parts of another metal, making it 75% pure gold.

Browse through your consignment furniture store until you find contemporary pieces that really catch your eye. Once you have furniture that creates the foundation for the room, you can continue the search for pieces that work well with your other finds.
Find Your Inspiration
As you start to collect pieces to build your fabulous contemporary living room, look for inspiration for how you want to set up your space. Whether you see an interesting contemporary design in a magazine or you want to work around one of your new furniture finds, choosing an inspiration gives you focus.
Find Your Color Scheme
Contemporary spaces perfectly utilize color to bring depth to a space. Before you really get to work on the makeover process, decide what colors you want to incorporate into your living room.
