Change .gnupg folder location?

I was wondering if it would be possible to change the default settings directory for gnupg.

Currently it is located in /home/me/.gnupg, I would like to change it to /home/me/Downloads/.gnupg or something. Perhaps removeable storage.

I have tried the home-dir config option. That lets me change the name of the .gnupg folder but not the location.

Thank you.
