How do I continue execution after a primary key violation exception is returned?

I am executing multiple inserts and if an exception is returned I want to continue with the next insert.

Sub DoMyInsert()
  'Setup Local Variables

    For Each oRow as DataRow In datTable.Rows

      'If a primary key exception occurs, how do I jump back into this loop?

      'Get data
      'Insert into another table


  Catch ex As SqlException
    'Do I do something here?
  Catch ex As Exception
    Throw ex
  End Try
End Sub

Do I need to user a couter loop and hold the index and return?

Do I need to user and "On Error...Resume Next" block?
