Blue and yellow is the color combo of the season (as the Pecos collection shows!), and we've become obsessed with seeking out yellow gemstones to wear with our lapis lazuli. We've searched high and low and found a clear favorite: bumble bee jasper. But where does the stone come from? And how easy it is to shop for? We've done our research and have all the answers right here for y'all!

First things first, bumble bee jasper is pretty rare because it's only found in one location on earth, Java, Indonesia. It's mined by locals from the side of an active volcano called Mount Papandayan, so we think that makes it pretty special straight off the bat. This unique gemstone is yellow or orange and sometimes has black stripes running through it that look like, yes you guessed it, a bumble bee.

It is believed to help ease emotional stress, increase your confidence and help you have a more positive outlook on life, we say sign us up! Its vibrant color also looks most striking set into sterling silver, which works perfectly for us as you know we love us some silver jewelry.

We love to wear bumble bee jasper in a pair of earrings for a bright pop of color around the face. They look particularly striking if you have dark hair as they really stand out in contrast. We have a bunch of dangle and drop styles available right on the DDR website now that match perfectly with the Pecos collection - we even have some fun star-shaped pairs!

If you don't have dark hair or prefer to wear your jasper elsewhere, we've got some gorgeous bumble bee jasper rings, cuffs and even a squash blossom necklace that's sure to steal the show! The yellow color is so vivid it really stands out against all the navy blue in the Pecos collection (or any black you've already got in your closet). In short, next time you need some yellow jewelry, just reach for jasper.
