Pearl jewelry has been a thing of the past and present and will likely continue to have a presence in the foreseeable future.

Pearls recently made their way back onto the scene at Chanel’s spring 2014 show when Karl Lagerfeld sent larger-than-life pearls down the runway. That same season, Oscar de la Renta adorned sheer, cream-and-gold booties with dainty pearls and Simone Rocha sent an array of pearl styles (even knee socks!) down her runway. And it looks like the pearl will continue to reign supreme come next spring as it popped up on the Honor and Lanvin (above) spring 2015 runways.

So, what does this all mean? It means that pearl jewelry is worth your investment.

The easiest way to incorporate the style into your wardrobe is with accessories. Luckily, jewelry designers have found new ways to reinvent the pearl. We've seen the style for centuries (hello, Girl with a Pearl Earring), and time and time again, and even more so recently, but there seems to be a breath of fresh air in the pearl arena as a continuous stream of modern and painfully cool pearl pieces surface.

To wit: Vita Fede, an L.A.-born, Italian-made brand whose pieces are worn around the wrist of countless InStyle editors, transformed a nontraditional two-finger ring into a dainty pearl-adorned stunner while Mizuki took the linear earring trend a step further by studding it with a pearl. Ben-Amun married the edginess of a chunky chain link necklace with the elegance of a strand of pearls, creating a lariat style. Shop these pieces and more below:
