We’re Going on a Jewelry Tour at Borsheims!

Friday, May 5th, 2017

You’ve never seen jewelry cases as packed as we have them at Borsheims during Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend. As we walked around the store, we compared the cases (and the store) to a super-crowded street market, but only with high-end jewelry, watches and gifts.

Whether or not you plan to buy – and whether or not you’re a shareholder- all fans of jewelry should stop into Borsheims in the next few days to check out the amazing pieces brought in specifically for this weekend.

Here’s a tour of a few pieces that caught my eye during a quick walk around the store. Start your tour in the Luxe Salon – the circular area in the center of the store. It’s full of our most exquisite pieces and you could honestly spend all day there looking at jewelry that is rare enough to be found in museums.

Check out the Warren Buffett signed diamonds first. They’re on your right and are limited edition. They sell fast every year, so if you want one, sit down and buy one right away. They’re usually gone by Sunday!

Directly across from the Warren Buffett signed diamonds are the Warren Buffett signed pearl strands!

We told you earlier today about the one-of-a-kind pearl strands from TARA & Sons featuring Warren Buffet’s signature on the clasp. They’re even more incredible in person. This strand is very long featuring multi-colored pearls. The clasp is gorgeous in itself – covered in diamonds and Mr. Buffett’s signature. They are definitely worth a peek yourself.

While you’re checking out the pearls with Warren Buffett’s signature, you an go ahead and give this pearl and amethyst cuff a glance. It’s really three-dimensional and set in 18k rose gold, which gives it a lot of warmth.

While you’re wandering around the Luxe Salon, head over to the Kalahari Dream Diamond collection, where each diamond is mined in the Kalahari Desert region of southern Africa. The sales of these diamonds are earmarked to build a well in a village in Botswana that doesn’t have access to clean water. Beyond the feeling of doing good that you’ll get from buying these diamonds, you’ll also get an incredible set of diamond jewelry! The necklace features nearly 11 carats of diamonds and retails for $165,000. The earrings are diamond studs with a removable jacket totaling more than 9 carats and retailing for $95,000.

Keep going around the Luxe Salon circle and you’ll run into a few cases from Rahaminov. Each piece there is more amazing than the last. The true showstopper this year might be this 30 carat oval diamond ring! Watch how it scintillates as it moves!

Once you’re done there, pick your jaw back up off the floor and exit the Luxe Salon and you’ll walk straight into a case full of diamonds in every color of the rainbow – courtesy our friends at JB Star.

We have fancy intense blue, fancy pink, fancy intense green and on and on and on.

These range from $2.5 to $4 million each. They’re phenomenal.

Take a right from JB Star and you’ll see a big section of our cases devoted to Roberto Coin. Always a favorite our Borsheims shoppers, my personal favorite Roberto Coin piece this year is this rooster ring, celebrating the year of the rooster!

How fun is this! He’s #1 of 25 total in the world. I’ve never had a rooster made solely out of sapphires set in 18k white gold. Why not now? For the price of $14,500 retail, it can be yours.

Walk around the next island to find the Mattia Cielo collection which is full of movement due to the titanium wire used in each piece.

It bends and moves and is very light and super cool. Check their ring out, too!

Those bands move back and forth, drawing attention to the gorgeous diamonds underneath.

You’d really be missing out if you didn’t wander on over to our watch section, especially to the Cartier counter. This Reves de Panthere has nearly 600 diamonds and is a WOW piece! Take it home with you for a cool $166,000.

That’s all the tour I could get in within an hour, but I’m sure you can see just as much or more. There’s plenty in here to view!

And remember to bring your shareholder pass so you can get a discount on all these fabulous pieces!

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!

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

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.

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

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!).

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

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.

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!

Plan Your Borsheims Shopping For Berkshire Hathaway Weekend

Thursday, April 16th, 2015

Borsheims invites a select group of vendors to attend Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend each year. It’s an elite group – some of our best jewelry, watch and gift lines – whose representatives travel to Omaha from around the world with their finest pieces just for our Berkshire Hathaway shareholders.

Borsheims was the first store in the US to have the Cartier Diver watch in May, 2014. The watch is water resistant to 300 meters.

Borsheims was the first store in the US to have the Cartier Diver watch in May, 2014. The watch is water resistant to 300 meters.

Just last year, our vendors brought with them jewelry worn by celebrities, incredibly rare diamonds, and the Cartier Diver watch that wasn’t for sale anywhere else in the world yet.

While we are still finding out what incredible pieces our vendors will bring with them this year, we do know who is coming.

You can know, too! Check out the vendor section of our blog to see who we’ve invited to attend this year’s Berkshire Hathaway weekend. We’ve included a brief description of each vendor so you can learn a bit about them and start to plan your shopping accordingly. As they start to arrive with their gorgeous wares, we’ll highlight some of the most amazing pieces right here on BorsheimsBRK.com.

Changes at Borsheims

What’s going on behind the walls?

There are a few surprises awaiting Berkshire Hathaway shareholders when they arrive for this year’s Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholders’ weekend… and they’re currently in the works behind these makeshift construction walls.

There are two areas under construction. The photo on the left is in the watch area of the sales floor. This will be a Cartier shop-in-shop. A large Cartier backdrop and new showcases with red carpeting will set the Cartier shop apart from the rest of the sales floor. Borsheims is the only place in the area you can shop for Cartier products and we’re thrilled to have this shop-in-shop concept coming to Borsheims.

The photo on the right is of the new Pandora shop-in-shop. Pandora is a new line to Borsheims, and specializes in delivering genuine, high quality jewelry and accessories at affordable prices. You may know them best for their line of charms.

Both shop-in-shops are scheduled to be completed in time for the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholders’ weekend. In fact, we’re hoping to get them done by early next week!

Look for photos of the finished product here, then come check them out in person and get some great deals with your Berkshire Hathaway shareholder credentials!
