Fashion is for everyone at all times including when you're interviewing.  How you present yourself can make or break your chances of getting a job.  I believe for an interview jewelry should be tasteful, understated, and appropriate for the attire.  One good tip to remember when deciding what to wear to an interview is that you want to emphasize your professionalism and not your fashion taste.

Jewelry worn to an interview should be neutral and not too revealing in tone.  Wearing something that is overly religious, pet, horoscope, or even hobby related can only hurt your chances at landing the job.  You want to make sure you keep the interviewer focused on your exceptional business skills and not the fact that you love cats.  The last thing you need is for them to draw on any stereotypes instead of the business at hand.

Also, a good tip to remember is that "after hour" jewelry can make you look unprofessional.  Big hoop earrings or over sized rings are better left for the weekends.  Bracelets can be very distracting as well as noisy, especially if you are a hand talker and best avoided.

A great way to keep attention towards your face is with a pair of stud earrings that have a bit of sparkle and/or a simple necklace that hits around your collar bone.  Now I am probably the biggest fan of the "more is more" philosophy when it comes to wearing jewelry, but even I know there is a time and place and when you are looking to land a corporate gig and the interview room is not it.  When in doubt go classic and small like the lovely ladies pictures below.
