Borsheims is adding a new, but familiar face to its expert sales staff – Warren Buffett. While the Berkshire Hathaway Chairman hasn’t completed his gemology training yet, he will still be selling jewelry in the store Sunday afternoon, May 1, during the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholders’ Weekend. As Warren says, “If you don’t know jewelry, know your jeweler.”
While Borsheims excellent sales staff spends years becoming experts on all things jewelry, Mr. Buffett will have to brush up on his skills in just a few months. He could take classes on the 4 C’s of diamonds or learn to master the metals like gold and platinum. He may want to delve into diamonds, gemstones and pearls. Or perhaps he will just wing it.
Borsheims President & CEO Susan Jacques said, “We are thrilled and flattered that Warren wants to come and sell at our store. I’m sure he’ll be a record-setting salesman within a few minutes of being on the sales floor!”
Borsheims Fine Jewelry and Gifts has been helping shoppers with their gift-buying needs for more than 100 years.
