After you’ve secured a date with a dreamy someone, now comes the time to pick your outfit and accessories. You want the pieces you choose to play up your unique personality without overpowering your features and still suiting the type of activity and the location for the date. If considering all of these things feels a bit overwhelming, we’re here to help. Read on for our tips from our Albert’s Diamond Jewelers team for choosing fantastic pieces of jewelry for a first date.

Consider The Activity

It is essential to consider the activity you’ll be engaging in on your date when planning out your ensemble. For instance, if you’re going to a casual brunch spot, your date might be confused by a glittering, tiered gemstone necklace. In this case, a simple pendant necklace or choker might be a better fit.

If you’re going for a classic date like dinner and a movie, try to pick pieces that are both polished but not overtly opulent. A pair of eye-catching hoop earrings like these textured, sterling silver hoops by John Hardy will add a touch of edginess and personality ideal for a first date.

Express Your Personality

One of the most important things to communicate on a date, with your words, clothes, and accessories, is your distinctive personality. Show them what makes you stand out from the crowd as you seek to find out the same thing about them.

Choose accessories that express something unique about you. For instance, a piece like this star and moon motif bracelet communicates whimsy and dreaminess. Layer it with a few more pieces to show your eclectic side, or let it stand on its own if you tend more toward minimalism.

Dress to Impress

You’ll also want to show your respect for the individual you’re going on a date with as well as yourself. With your dress and jewelry, show them that you take this seriously, and that you’re putting in the effort to make a good impression. When it comes to dating, a little effort can go a long way.

Adorn yourself with a piece like this sapphire and diamond fashion ring to truly make you feel like royalty and express your confidence to your date. It would be wonderfully fitting for a trip to an art show, a play, or a candle-lit dinner.

Compliment Your Features

Play up each feature with carefully selected accessories that will make you sparkle. Choose metals that work well with your skin tone, gemstones that make your eyes pop, and glittering earrings that draw attention to your high cheekbones, celebrating your unique beauty.

If you’ve got green eyes, perhaps a stunning emerald pendant necklace will emphasize their color. As you move and speak on your date, the piece will subtly catch your date's light and attention.
