New in the Borsheims Gift Gallery for 2015

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

Borsheims is known for its jewelry – as well we should be. We offer an incredible selection of some of the finest jewelry in the world all at an amazing price for our customers.

But we’re also known for our beautiful gift gallery. It, too, has a vast selection of some of the finest gifts. And, again, it has that great Borsheims pricing which makes every purchase a great deal.

We’ve added a few new lines in the gift gallery since last year’s Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend. Some are very unique.

Teyros Collection

Aren’t these so cute? This is a line of bowls, plates, tea pots, planters and vases from Tyros Collection. The artist used to be a doll designer, but decided to mix her doll making with table ware art. We love styling these ladies and gentlemen.

This bar cart and the items on it are from designer Jan Barboglio. The cart retails for $3,000.

These wall hangings are flying off our walls. Sugarboo makes a series of them (you can see just a few on our website). They range in price but are around $300 (without the shareholder discount). There are a few I’d love to hang in my house!

We have loved having these bowls from Andrew Pearce in the store. And Andrew himself joined us for a signing event earlier in the year. His wooden bowls and serveware are beautiful – and he’s no stranger to Borsheims since we’ve sold glassware made by his Dad (Simon Pearce) for years.

Take a walk through our gift gallery this week. And remember to pick up some items for all your events this spring: Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduations, weddings, etc. Everyone loves a Borsheims box!

New Items in Borsheims Gift Department for Berkshire Hathaway weekend

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

Berkshire Hathaway shareholders who haven’t been into Borsheims in a while will be greeted with some new lines in our gift department. We thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the new items and give a shout out to our new vendors.

These bowls from Andrew Pearce are gorgeous. Andrew Pearce is the son of Simon Pearce, a renowned glassblower and pottery artist. The bowls use locally sourced wood from Vermont and a unique manufacturing process designed by Andrew himself. It produces very little waste, using as much of the wood as possible to minimize impacts on the environment and encourage sustainability.

Harold Lustig makes these di-chroic crystals in a vacuum chamber where an electron beam deposits many microscopic layers of metallic oxides on an optically pure crystal. Whether you like the science behind it or you just like really pretty things, these crystals are very cool. (By the way, they are tough to photograph with my limited skills. Much prettier in person!)

CatStudio PillowThe large Matthew Placzek sculpture will be back outside Borsheims this year. He has sold one each of the last few years, and this year, it’s another butterfly sculpture similar to last year’s. I don’t have an image of this year’s butterfly yet, but here is a photo of last year’s butterfly for reference.

This butterfly sculpture by Matthew Placzek was on display outside Borsheims during the 2013 Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend.

I am sure there are other new lines that we missed, so take your time and walk around our gift gallery. We have items in all price ranges that are great for giving to yourself or others!
