All job-seekers, whether it’s the first time after graduating from college or you are moving up the ladder, have to dress right and look confident. Wear the appropriate apparels depending upon the work culture and job role. Moreover, if you have interned in a company, you will be familiar with the dress culture that prevails there.
This applies to job fairs and placement interviews too. You are going to face the interviewer, and it is best to look professional.
Simple Office wear Diamond Jewellery
In an interview, the primary focus is on your skills rather than what you are wearing. If you are appearing for an interview in the fashion industry, you have to show off your style.
For the men, limit your wearables to a simple wedding ring and a decent watch. Do not wear flashy bracelets or charms that are often seen as a distraction. You should appear like a candidate on the lookout for a job. Do not give an impression that you are a corporate bigwig who has come to strike an M&A deal with the interviewer.
Ladies must compulsorily wear minimal jewellery. A pearl stud and a pendant apart from the customary jewels should do the trick. Avoid bold rings and stop at just one finger ring. The interviewer should not be of the opinion that you hold large stakes in a jewellery company.
Ladies can opt for a pair of gold, silver or pearl earrings. If you have multiple piercings, limit the quantity to only one for an interview. It is perfectly fine to wear your wedding ring. Try the diamond crusted rings for subtlety. Most interviewers often form an opinion regarding your dressing style from these small accessories.
If you are in the fashion industry, it is alright to wear rings on several fingers.
From your intuition, you must understand that large neck pieces with motifs, gold necklaces, and multi-layered beads will only create a negative feedback on the interviewer. Wear the single loop pendants with a single stone set in them.
A string of pearls are the best choices. Pair it with a matching set of pearly studs. Elegant designs are available in rose gold, silver and white gold.
Wear minimal bangles for your interview. The last things the interview panel would want to see is the dozens bangles clashing against one other. Not only are they a distraction, the jarring sound can be annoying in a workplace.
Match your apparels with a simple watch or a charming diamond bracelet. Religious images and charms are a strict no-no.
Picking Up Office Wear Diamond Jewellery
Here are few must-do’s to follow while picking trinkets to wear for the interview.
Wear jewellery that complements your style.
There are a variety of gold pendants, diamond pendants, solitaires, coral pendants and wrist bangles for office wear. Pick them up and match it with the formal attire.
Choose from gemstone types like amethyst or blue topaz.
Whatever is your personal choice, do not go overboard and exaggerate your style. Keep it simple and minimal.
Wear small jewels.
It is a good idea if necklaces are confined to a single string of pearl or you have a wedding ring on your finger. Unless you are ramp walking, you should not wear loud imitation jewels.
Acceptable jewellery for interviews include small bands or wedding ring, small neck chains, non-religious pendants, single bracelet or a watch. Wear small ear studs that do not draw attention from others.
Things to avoid when choosing accessories for an interview:
Do not wear jewellery that defines your political or religious views.
You might like the animal prints bizarre neckpiece. It can be a recipe for disaster if the person interviewing you is a nature addict.
Steer clear of plastic jewellery.
You should also avoid wearing plastic or cheap material jewels. They do not convey a good message to the interviewer and they lack elegance. Have you got multiple piercings on your ear, nose and body? It is best if you can limit the accessories to one on your ear.
Tongue piercings speak negative about your attitude and you might even get rejected.
Match your clothing with the jewels
You must coordinate jewellery with your clothing. For instance, if you are dressed in black and white, wear a pearl stud or bracelet. Do not wear the chunky bit of necklace which you came across in the glossy magazine. Avoid multiple bracelets and jewellery with bright stones.
Be careful about expensive jewels. Sometimes, they are available as fake pieces and the person interviewing you might be a pro in diamond jewellery.
Once you are hired by the company, you can express yourself vividly with other statement jewellery and accessories. For the moment, focus on your skills and how you would like to be presented.
