What Jewelry, Watch, Gift Vendors will be at Borsheims?

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Borsheims is known as one of the largest independent jewelry stores in the nation. That’s based on square footage of the store itself as well as the wide inventory of jewelry, watches, and fine gifts carried in the store.

Each spring, we carefully go through our list of jewelry, watch, and gift vendors to invite a select few to join us for Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend.

Those vendors then bring in their absolute best goods for the weekend. We’re talking art-museum quality jewelry pieces, the first glimpse at a new and highly-anticipated watch, and one-of-a-kind artwork for your home or office.

This year, we have another spectacular rundown of vendors joining us for the weekend. You can access the entire list of our vendors here. We have dozens of additional brands available in the store, but we cannot possibly fit all of our vendors and all their extra goodies in the store at once so we do have to limit which lines can actually send vendors and additional merchandise for the weekend.

Do you like this year’s list? Are there any vendors you want us to include in next year’s list? Or any lines that we don’t carry that you’d like to see in store at Borsheims? Let me know in the comments!

If you’re visiting Borsheims during Berkshire Hathaway weekend (and really, you should!), you can also spend some time checking out some of the other shops within the Regency shopping center where Borsheims is located.

We’re thankful for our shopping center neighbors – they do put up with our crowds of 30,000+ people every year and our Friday and Sunday parties we throw for our shareholders. We know they’re also thankful to see all of you and they want to pass along some discounts to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders.

Plan your Berkyville Buys Now!

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

We’re almost two weeks away from the most fun annual shareholders meeting on the planet!

It’s time to start thinking about what deals you can score when you shop in Berkyville – the huge convention center filled with Berkshire Hathaway companies selling their goods to you at a steep discount.

We don’t know yet what kind of great deals our sister companies like Pampered Chef and Brooks will be running this year.

We do know the Bookworm (not a Berkshire company, but a friend) has released its list of Warren Buffett-approved books they’ll have on site. Click here to see what the Oracle hopes you read.

And we’re ready at Borsheims to share the incredible deals on jewelry, watches, and gifts we’ll be offering. These deals are available both Friday and Saturday at the CenturyLink Center and they really are incredible. We have diamond studs, pearl strands, watches, and all sorts of Berkshire Hathaway souvenirs you’ll want to take home at you – at prices that no one can beat.

Watch the video to get a glimpse of all we have to offer this year. But act quick if you want to purchase during Berkshire weekend. Many of our items sell out quickly!

Watch the Becoming Warren Buffett Documentary on Eve of Berkshire Weekend

Thursday, April 6th, 2017

This is an exciting opportunity for those Berkshire Hathaway shareholder traveling to Omaha early.

Our wonderful nonprofit local theater is showing a special screening of the excellent documentary Becoming Warren Buffett.

Becoming Warren Buffett Doc showing

You will need advance tickets to attend the showing at 7pm on Thursday, May 4th.

Tickets are on sale starting TODAY (April 6) by clicking here or visiting www.filmstreams.org/film/warren.

We have talked before on this site about how much we love this documentary. It’s a great insight into Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway, and even if you’re not a Berkshire groupie, it’s a moving portrait of a human. We can’t recommend it enough!

Warren Buffett’s Annual Letter Coming Saturday

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

Clear your calendar. Block off your Saturday. Get your reading glasses cleaned and at-the-ready.

Saturday morning, our esteemed Chairman Warren Buffett is expected to release his annual letter to shareholders. It’s full of details on how Berkshire Hathaway is performing, a general outlook on the world, funny anecdotes and one-liners, and information about this year’s Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend.

In advance of the letter, Berkshire Hathaway already released a little news about the weekend, and it’s big news for our friends in Kansas City and Dallas.

For the first time, Nebraska Furniture Mart will offer the Berkshire Hathaway discounts at ALL their locations – not just the Omaha store.

The meeting will also be live streamed once again, allowing shareholders and non shareholders around the world to get a taste of the meeting.

But we all know that there is no substitute for being in Omaha and experiencing Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend firsthand. So book that trip and get ready. May 6th is approaching quickly.

Peek Into Borsheims Gift Gallery

Saturday, April 30th, 2016

Not only does Borsheims bring in incredible jewelry and watches for Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend, but we also make sure our gift gallery is stocked with great items.

We have several new vendors you might notice when visiting the gift gallery this weekend. Here are a few highlights:

IMG_0720

The wood items are from GG Collection – and are called “contemporary European decor” for the kitchen.

IMG_0723

I love this zebra laundry basket – especially for a child’s room. And if you’re from out-of-town, we know how to ship!

IMG_0725

We’ve carried Kosta Boda for years, but I’ve never seen lipstick decor quite this large.

IMG_0727

Simon Pearce is another favorite vendor. These vases and bowls are incredible pieces of art.

IMG_0731 These quartz votive holders are from Kathryn McCoy. We have them in a wide variety of sizes.

Simon Pearce has a really updated look this year, bringing in the crystalline look.

Don’t forget those amazing Swarovski crystal encrusted animals we talked about the other day, either!

Come in to get a full view of what all we have in store. It’s a packed gift gallery for Berkshire weekend!

What’s the Most Expensive Piece at Borsheims This Year?

Friday, April 29th, 2016

The question I get asked the most each year (other than where to find the restrooms) is what is the most expensive item at Borsheims.

Here is this year’s winner…

Yellow Diamond

It’s a 56.10 carat fancy intense yellow diamond.

Want to take it home? We’d love to have a shareholder buy it! Retail price is more than $6 million, but a Berkshire Hathaway shareholder can take it home for $4.6 million.

There’s an App for This, BRKers!

Friday, April 29th, 2016

 

Our friend Brent Truell has updated his Berkshire Hathaway shareholder weekend app for this year’s meeting! It’s always so handy to be able to carry around an app that has all the weekend’s official information at the touch of your fingers.

It’s called the BRK Annual Meeting Guide – search for it under Berkshire Hathaway in the app store.

BRK Weekend App

 

During my time on the shareholder information desk outside Borsheims, I reference it all day long! We quickly run out of the hard copies of the visitor’s guides – and many people don’t want to carry a visitor’s guide around all weekend anyway.

And bonus! Brent made a fun Berkshire Hathaway game, too

Buy Borsheims Jewelry at the CenturyLink Center Today, Tomorrow

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Along with the other Berkshire Hathaway companies, Borsheims assembles a great little pop-up-shop at the CenturyLink Center during the Berkshire Hathaway shareholders meeting.

This year, the Borsheims booth has a new and improved layout, which should help the line move even more quickly.

As for jewelry, we have the same favorites (diamond studs, engagement rings, pearl necklaces, sterling silver earrings, and bracelets) and a few fun new items.

The biggest sellers might be these BRK necklaces in yellow gold or white gold – available in both necklace and bracelet form. They’re each $775.75.

BRK Pendant

 

These Swarovski Bella studs always sell out quickly – and they’re a great price at $55.

Bella Earrings

We have diamond studs in a broad range of prices and sizes.

Diamond Studs

Watches and cufflinks might appeal more to the men.

And don’t forget all the other Berkshire Hathaway memorabilia and jewelry. Browse this slideshow to get a peek at what all will be available at the Borsheims booth at the CenturyLink Center. And remember we are open there today from noon until 5pm and tomorrow (Saturday) from 7am until the meeting wraps up about 4pm. Hope to see you there for some shopping!
