The Buro Edit: Affordable shell jewellery we’re not only wearing to the beach

Shell out

Text: Joan Kong


Remember the puka shell chokers from the ‘90s? The trend is back and bigger than ever

Since it was first revived on the Spring/Summer 2019 runways last year, seashell jewellery has been making a slow yet steady comeback, and we can't think of a better time to start rocking the throwback trend than now. What we love most about the revival, is how it's not only appropriate for the beach—we've spotted the shell necklaces, earrings and more on celebrities and street style stars alike regularly over the past year, proving that the trend is here to stay.

One of the most popular ways to wear it, is to layer a shell necklace with a plain chain, whether it's in the form of a choker, or adorned with metallic charms. Either way, our shopping guide filled with affordable options allows you to pile on the pieces without breaking the bank. Some of our favourite pieces from the guide include the hoop shell earrings from Zara for that modern flair, Mango's beaded choker that exudes a hint of Bohemia, and Wanderlust + Co's necklace that's adorned with seaside-themed charms. One thing's for sure—they're way better than the puka shell chokers we probably once wore as a kid.
