Joy Debnath Owner

By: Joy Debnath  


     A native to New Orleans, I come from a family of master jewelers. My mother, built a successful business as a designer and custom jeweler and offered her services to some of the finest jewelry stores in the Greater New Orleans area She taught my father the trade and we spent a good deal of my childhood on the road exhibiting at trade shows around the country.

I learned stone faceting, cabochon, bead stringing, wire sculpting & more throughout my childhood years. I also developed relationships with other jewelry designers, some of whom I still purchase finished jewelry from for resale at my storefront today. My experience and education in the Lapidary field led me to pursue a career in the industry and I opened Earth Odyssey in 2004. I hand select every piece of jewelry that we showcase both in-store and online. Many of the minerals and gemstones that are used in crafting our jewelry are unique and not commonly found in sterling silver designs.

     We freely share the knowledge with our customers about how to harness the energies of the stones for positive growth and self-improvement. The City of New Orleans has faced many hardships that have tested our ability to stand strong. Hurricanes, man-made disasters, the COVID shutdown and other obstacles have caused hardships for us to keep the business operating, but we persevere every time and continue to serve as an important beacon for the community to educate others about alternative forms of healing and offer a place for hope and solace.

We carry over 200 types of rocks, minerals, and gemstones so that we can help our customers find that perfect match.


  Seeking to fulfill the requests of our customers, we began offering holistic services and psychic readings in 2011. We continue to thrive thanks to the dedicated people that make up our Earth Odyssey team.  Come and meet us and I am sure that you will feel the positive vibes and go home with something that will improve your well-being.


 Our mission is to promote holistic healing and personal growth through the use of gemstones, natural products, and spiritual guidance. We embrace our two main values of knowledge and honesty in every aspect of our business and through exemplary actions, we seek to have a positive impact on the community and world.
