First impressions are essential, and the perfect accessories can help you ensure you put your best foot forward for a first outing with a love interest. When selecting your ensemble and accessories for a first date, there are several things to consider. Our experts here at Hannoush Jewelers have put together a guide to help you choose the pieces that will allow you to truly sparkle.

Compliment Your Features

Choosing jewelry that plays up your unique and extraordinary beauty is great. For instance, look for necklaces or earrings that feature vibrant gemstones that bring out your eyes. Sapphires or topaz will make blue eyes pop, while emeralds are phenomenal for green eyes.

Choose metals that complement your skin tone. Warm metals like rose and yellow gold will play up the orange, brown, and pink hues inherent in warm skin tones. Silver and white gold, however, look phenomenal on those whose skin has cooler undertones.

Express Your Personality

Let your look do some leg work to show off your personality. Select accessories that feel authentic to you. If you don’t feel like yourself, you’ll likely have a more challenging time being present and enjoying your time.

For instance, if you’re the type that likes to stand out, then wear a few bold, colorful pieces that work well with your ensemble. If you’re typically more reserved, minimalist pieces like dainty chain necklaces or stud earrings would be fitting.

Dress To Impress

Communicate to your date that you respect their time and your own by dressing to impress. Choose pieces that show you’ve put thought and time into your ensemble. Complete a sleek evening dress look with a sparkly bangle bracelet and choker. Add visual interest to a pared-back look with chunky statement rings or gemstone-studded hoop earrings.

Make sure the pieces you choose are of fine quality. For example, you wouldn’t want to wear pieces that are chipped, warped, or missing stones.

Consider the Activity

It’s also vital that the pieces you choose are appropriate for the type of date you’re going on. You wouldn’t want to show up to a casual coffee shop or diner in chandelier earrings or an elaborate tiered diamond necklace. Consider what you’ll be doing and what will make you most comfortable.

For more active dates like bowling or sailing, choose pieces that will remain in place and not get caught in your hair or clothing. Also, try and match the aesthetic of the outing. For example, don some asymmetrical, boldly colorful pieces for a trip to an art gallery.

Don’t Overpower

Seek to achieve balance with your accessories. The jewelry you select should complement, not overshadow, your outfit. More importantly, you don’t want your jewelry to outshine your features. It would be a shame if your date couldn’t remember the color of your eyes for being so distracted by the many chunky chain necklaces you layered.

Enlist the help of close friends whose style and fashion sense you trust to give you insight into the balance of your look. Overall, you want to trust your instincts and intuition, making sure to express your most authentic self.
