There's something so nostalgic about seashell jewelry. Maybe the surfer boy you had a crush on in that little beach town wore a classic hemp puka necklace.

But while you probably took the accessories out of rotation sometime around high school, it appears they're back - and more grownup than ever. From gilded versions of that throwback choker to statement earrings that turn any outfit into a resort-worthy look, click through for the beachy staples you had no idea you'd been missing so much.
