Leland Blue Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

January 12, 2015


Can you believe it’s already mid January?? 5 months until summer and Valentine’s Day is only a month away. Have you started thinking about how to treat that special someone? I’m not sure what I’ll be getting the husband. Probably just a nice dinner alone. I’d settle for that. I, on the other hand would love a little something special and checking out the gorgeous Michigan jewelry pieces at Grandpa Shorter’s has got my wheels turning.

Leland Blue Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

I’d like to introduce to you, Leland Blue, an absolutely breathtaking blue stone only found here in Northern Michigan. “Known as the “Turquoise of the North”, Leland Blue stones are 100% unique. Because Leland Blue is a by-product material from the smelting of iron ore the blue ranges from a very light blue to the darkest of blues.”

I absolutely adore the blue shades in the Leland Blue stones. It reminds me of summer and the gorgeous deep blue waters we are surrounded by here in Michigan.

If you’re wanting to get a lovely piece of jewelry for that special someone and want to keep with the Michigan theme AND shop local, Leland Blue jewelry is definitely the way to go and Grandpa Shorter’s has a wonderful selection in varying price ranges. You’re sure to find something that catches your eye.
