These posts will provide information about birth month gemstones and feature select jewelry pictures of each stone.
This month, October, is represented by Opal. More than 90% of opals come from Australia. The rest come from the US, Mexico, Ethiopia, Czech Republic, Indonesia and Brazil. They come in all different shades, translucencies and colors!
While all gemstones are thought by many to have various properties, both good and bad, opals are rumored to be bad, unless it’s your birthstone. Opals have been referred to as “the stone of tears.” However, in the Middle East, opals are thought to be lucky! Among various superstitions (i.e., that opals keep blondes blonde, many of these superstitions were promulgated by competitors to interfere with the Australian opal market!
Despite not having an October birthday, I love and wear opals and can only encourage those missing out to enjoy their fire and beauty!

She began participating in jewelry shows, then opened her own shop 12 years ago. In 2016 she moved to Gloucester and opened her latest shop, DIVA. “Gloucester has the oldest art colony in the entire United States. It’s the oldest fishing village. There are sail makers here, furniture makers, sculpture. So it’s just a wonderful place to be in terms of arts and crafts,” she says.
DIVA, or Donna’s Infinite Variety of Adornments, features pieces made by Donna and other artisans specially chosen by her. DIVA also offers vintage and antique jewelry going back to the 1700s.
“When people come to my shop, not only will they get personalized attention—they’ll get the history,” she says. Donna loves to give the background for each piece to help her customers understand what makes it special. She wants them to take pleasure in wearing everything she makes or sells. “Jewelry should make someone feel better by wearing it.” We couldn’t agree more.
DIVA is located at 161 Main Street, Gloucester, Massachusetts.
