It’s beginning to look a lot like Berkshire!

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

This is a picture from a few years back, but I feel like we’re getting there at Borsheims! No shareholders sporting passes around their necks yet, but I was just on the sales floor and things are definitely starting to look Berkshire-ready.

Let me give you a little tour of how things are shaping up at Borsheims.

The gift gallery is quickly filling with new and exciting pieces. These sculptures and home decor by Michael Aram are stunning. The gold is absolutely beautiful and check out one of our favorite pieces:

It’s Icarus – known for flying too close to the sun. He’s displayed in front of a gorgeous painting by Michael Aram. It’s worth checking out in person.

Our Judith Leiber purses are elegantly squeezed into the display case so we can fit the most in for our shareholders. I love this frog prince.

The gift gallery isn’t getting all the attention. We have a new area in the store designated for Monica Rich Kosann jewelry. It’s become a fast favorite among customers.

My favorite Monica Rich Kosann pieces are the lockets. They’re lovely – not too flashy but absolutely perfect.

The sales floor is ready and we’re packing in more jewelry by the day, with some of the biggest and most amazing pieces arriving next week just in time for shareholders. You can beat the rush and shop now, and don’t forget the Berkshire Hathaway shareholders discount period starts on Monday at Borsheims!

What’s a cocktail party without a bag?

Friday, April 29th, 2011

No where in the “Borsheims Fine Jewelry and Gifts” name does it expressly say “and bags,” but Judith Leiber bags definitely fit with what we do at Borsheims!

Who wouldn’t call these a gift? Or fine? And most of them are definitely jeweled! Buy one now and you can bring it to tonight’s Berkshire Hathaway shareholder-only cocktail party.

The sales representative for Judith Leiber tells me that the brand is going back to its roots with a collection of exotic skin bags. But, they’ll continue to make their beautiful crystal evening bags as well. It’s all gorgeous!

Construction Complete

Man that was fast! It seems like it was just last week when I was talking about some construction happening at Borsheims. Want to see the finished product?

You can see we’re still hard at work putting the merchandise into the cases, but we are thrilled to have these new featured areas for our customers and shareholders. A few notes for those regulars who know the current store’s layout: the pearls have moved to where the Judith Leiber bags were located. The Judith Leiber bags have relocated inside the luxury salon. I’m sure you’ll still be able to find just what you’re looking for… and more!

Hello Weekenders,

Judith Leiber handbagsEvery year at Borsheims we welcome many of our jewelry designers and vendors to visit the store during the Berkshire Weekend. That way, as a shareholder, you have the chance to meet and chat with some of the best jewelry designers in the world. Each of these special vendors brings along thousands of exquisite pieces that will be on display exclusively during the Berkshire Shareholder’s Weekend.

I take a lot of photos of these stunning, special pieces and I will be sharing them this year in a series of posts Dazzling Gift Handbaghighlighting different jewelry vendors that have come to the 2010 shareholder’s meeting. In this post, I wanted to share some photos of the amazing Judith Leiber collection of jeweled handbags and pillboxes that we have on display this weekend. You may know Judith Leiber’s work from the Sex and the City movie, which featured a be-jeweled cupcake minaudiere. Judith Leiber pieces are always something special to see at Borsheims, but during the shareholder’s weekend we receive some exceptional pieces.

What is your favorite? The jewel-encrusted tomato, the black cat, the present? See more photos of fabulous handbags in this Judith Leiber photo set.

Hope you’re having fun,
