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!

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!

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.

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.

Cufflinks

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!

Animals You Can Wear at Borsheims

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

Earlier this week, we talked about the lions, tigers, and rhinos at Borsheims that will greet Berkshire Hathaway shareholders.

They’re more of the set-on-a-shelf-and-admire sort of animals.

If you’re more into wearable animals, do we have some options for you!

This collection of pearl animals from one of our favorite vendors, TARA Pearls125231_142 Tara Crab 00132252_107 00133106_178 00133197_070 00133230_211

Aren’t they cool? And this is just a sampling of the animals they have!

Come in to Borsheims to check them out during Berkshire Hathaway weekend. The crew from TARA Pearls will be on hand to tell you all about how special these are and I know they give great discounts to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders.

Exclusive Tag Heuer Smartwatch Available for Berkshire Shareholders

Wednesday, April 27th, 2016

The new TAG Heuer Smartwatch, TAG Heuer Connected, is in store at Borsheims and ready for Berkshire Hathaway shareholders.

TAG Heuer ConnectedThis is the newest watch from TAG Heuer, and one of the first smartwatches offered from any of the Swiss watchmakers.

The TAG Heuer Connected is considered a mini computer on your wrist that will work with Android Wear app for both Android and Apple. It is a luxury watch with a Titanium case and is 44mm in size.

Borsheims is fortunate to have nearly two dozen of the hard-to-come-by watches in stock (although they’re selling fast!). We have several different colored bands, too, so move fast if you want one in your favorite color. These are likely to be gone by the end of the weekend!

 

 

Lions, Tigers, Rhinos at Borsheims for Berkshire Weekend

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

We know that Berkshire Hathaway weekend can turn into a zoo at Borsheims, but this may be the first time we’ve had lions, tigers, and a rhinoceros in the store! No worries, though – these animals are only for admiration – not fear.

Each animal from Clarita Brinkerhoff has around 32,000 Swarovski crystals and is around 16 inches long, including the granite base. They retail for $10,000 each (although I’m sure there’s a discount for Berkshire Hathaway shareholders.)

They’re already on display in Borsheims gift gallery, so come check them out. And if the price is right, take home your own wild animal to remember your wild weekend in Omaha!

Back by Popular Demand… Warren Buffett Signed Diamonds

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

We call it Warren Buffett’s tiniest and most valuable signature.

It’s so tiny that the signature can only be seen through a jewelry loupe.

WEB Signature Inscription

We’ve sold a very limited collection of diamonds inscribed with Warren Buffett’s signature the past few Berkshire weekends and they always sell out very quickly.

So we’ve brought another limited collection back.

We have 40 loose stones – ranging from under a carat to more than five carats. They are round and square shaped diamonds. You can choose to have them made into rings, pendants, earrings, or about anything else you can dream up.

The price on them for shareholders is incredible – starting at just under $1,900 for the smallest stones to $134,000 for the 5.34 carat round.

If you want one, act fast! They’re usually all snatched up by the Sunday of Berkshire weekend.

Borsheims Exclusives – Jewelry You Can Find ONLY at Borsheims

Saturday, May 2nd, 2015

Prepare to be impressed.

Borsheims has several pieces of jewelry this weekend that you can ONLY see here. As in – exclusive, one-of-a-kind, first peek, jaw-droppingly beautiful jewelry and watches.

Check them out!

This is a conch pearl necklace from TARA Pearls. It took more than 7 years to assemble all the pearls since only 1 in 10,000 pearls from a conch is jewelry worthy. And then to find pearls that match enough in color and size!?! That makes this a true work of art. A necklace similar to this one sold at Sotheby’s for $1.1 million several years ago. To find out how much it will cost you to take this one home, see a salesperson in the store!

IMG_7929

These pear shaped yellow diamond earrings are not small. With 38 total carats, these earrings are listed at over $2.5 million.

IMG_7930

Pink diamonds are rare. Pink diamonds of this clarity, color and size are incredibly rare. This fancy pink diamond ring is over 5 carats and is listed at $3.8 million.

I love this story. Designer Roberto Coin has been a partner of Borsheims for several years. To celebrate our long relationship, he created a special collection you can find ONLY at Borsheims. It’s beautiful! It’s called the Silk collection and is made of lightly spun gold threads. It’s an updated twist on an old classic, which is what Roberto Coin does best.

IMG_7946

The best part about the Silk collection might be its price point. The pieces are generally under $5,000.

IMG_7956

Designer Marco Bicego also brought several one-of-a-kind pieces in this weekend. This gorgeous blue necklace is Lapis and sells for $9,510 (shareholders always get a discount!).

IMG_7962

The earrings are black opal and you can remove the gold dangle at the bottom, making it two pairs of earrings in one.

IMG_7963

This necklace was handmade by Marco Bicego with a technique he learned from his father. He took 18k gold and hand-twisted it around a wire. The piece is only in Omaha and is beautiful.

IMG_7966

Speaking of only in Omaha… check out these Cartier watches. Get a good look, because this is the world premiere of the Cle de Cartier watches. They feature a new in-house movement. The collection officially launches in September, but Berkshire Hathaway shareholders can take them home this weekend!

On the diamond front, we are happy to host the Forevermark Exceptional Diamond collection. Here’s what Forevermark says about the collection:

Exceptional Diamonds are kept separate from other diamonds from the moment of discovery. Their carat weight, color and purity classify them as extraordinarily valuable and rare. The De Beers Group of Companies has to mine over half a million rough diamonds to discover just one that meets the exacting standards required of an Exceptional. They are truly in a class of their own.IMG_7978

One of the coolest features of the Forevermark Exceptional Diamond collection is that you can name your diamond. Then, a coffee table book will be produced for you about your diamond featuring it’s name. I would name this 5 carat cushion cut ring above the “Costs As Much As My House But More Beautiful” diamond!
