It’s official, ladies. Pearls are no longer just for your grandmother, great-aunt Frances, and job interviews. Sarah Jessica Parker was seen wearing long strands of them looped over a little black dress, and I’ve got to say, she looked fabulous.

Along with the more tailored, 1950s-inspired looks that we saw for the Fall 2008 collections, it’s a perfect time for pearls to make a comeback.

J. Crew, a go-to resource for preppy fashion, already has several options for pearls in the form of rings, bracelets and necklaces. My personal favourite is this long pearl necklace tied with a bit of black ribbon—it’s a much more whimsical interpretation of the classic pearl necklace.

Neiman Marcus has a wide selection of pearl items from jeweler Majorca, and net-a-porter has this lovely oversized pearl ring from costume jeweler Kenneth Jay Lane.

The best thing is, if you’re shopping on a budget it is so easy to interpret this trend for your own look. Costume pearls abound at high street stores, make this a trend everyone can follow without the buyer’s remorse!
