People can shop local & support our business AND if they buy tanzanite they support a 'local' community in another country.

Blue Heron Jewelers Tanzanite supplier, Godwin Selembo is from Tanzania, a world away from downtown Poulsbo, but thanks to Selembo it is also extraordinarily close. Godwin Selembo owns and operates his business, Serengeti Expeditions and Safaris in Port Gamble, Washington.

By purchasing Tanzanite through Selembo, Leo Fried, the owner of Blue Heron Jewelers, is purchasing from a co-op of Masi Miners and knows that a portion of proceeds from the sales of each stone he buys will go back into the co-op. These funds go towards funding teacher’s salaries, housing, clean water wells, schools, and other things the village determines as being a priority.

Tanzanite is one of the gemstone choices for December birthdays and is being spotlighted this month by Blue Heron.

For the past 25 years, Blue Heron Jewelers owner Leo Fried has worked to source his gemstones from reputable vendors and he, as well as his staff are community focused be it locally in Historic Downtown Poulsbo or by working to help small communities such as the Masai co-op. Using stones such as Tanzanite allow Leo to showcase his vision, craftsmanship, and heartfelt care that help to create one of kind pieces of wearable art.

Blue Heron’s dedicated team is proud to offer exclusive in-house design services, offering a unique collaboration between on site, veteran craftsman and knowledgeable and creative in-house design associates. Blue Heron is committed to providing stunning pieces and superlative customer service customizing to your needs, including style, budget and personality.
