Shop the best pearl jewelry under $70 below to add some ocean influence into your look while also rocking one of the most classic gems on earth...and in the sea.

Before you turn your nose up at the mentioning of pearls, know that these are not the kind that your grandma rocked during your childhood. They've gotten a throughly modern update and feel the exact opposite of stuffy or prim, so don't think they'll clash with your wardrobe or feel out of place. Pearls are now strung on strands of bright rainbow beads and used to adorn structural earrings; they're championed in their raw natural shape and used to adorn tiny charms. Trust me when I say that the pearl renaissance is real and that after perusing the below offerings you'll want to become a part of it. Channel your inner mermaid, pick out a few of your favorite pieces, and infuse your summer style with a festive iridescence.
