We have been lucky to witness several proposals at Borsheims over the years.
This one may take the cake.
After all, it’s not every day you get the Oracle of Omaha, Warren Buffett, in your engagement story.
Here’s the behind-the-scenes on how it happened:
Eric LeFante sent a letter to Mr. Buffett’s office a few months ago, explaining that he would like Mr. Buffett’s help in proposing to his girlfriend. Mr. Buffett’s office put Eric in touch with Borsheims long-time salesperson, Monica Eby.
Monica worked with Eric over the past few months to plan the entire thing out. From selecting the diamond (which is a Borsheims Signature Diamond from Canada) to mapping out exactly how the surprise would play out. Monica even made sure to arrange champagne for the happy couple to toast with Mr. Buffett. (The Omaha World Herald has the story, too.)
Watch the video to see exactly how Warren helps with the surprise.
We are thrilled for Eric and Carrie and so honored that we get to play a role in such a special moment in their lives.That’s our mission statement at Borsheims:
“We are privileged to share in the special moments in our customers’ lives. We will treat this opportunity with the respect and importance it deserves.”Thank you, Eric and Carrie, for allowing us to be a part of your special day. Thank you, Monica, for another job well done. And thank you, Mr. Buffett, for your great acting work (and salesman job!) You are all welcome back at Borsheims any time!
