Jen’s Obsession: Laura Pierson’s Ocean Jasper Stud Earrings

With its lighthearted patterns and uplifting color combinations, it’s easy to see why some believe that ocean jasper will boost your spirits. The often-opaque gem is as whimsical looking as a Dr. Seuss illustration, and when offset by faceted rocks—like this pair of stud earrings in gold with yellow sapphires and colorless diamonds from Dallas-based Laura Pierson—the orbicular-patterned stone from Madagascar can have serious appeal to gemstone lovers.
