Animals were on display at Borsheims as part of a fundraiser for Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium.

Nearly a dozen animal ambassadors from Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium and their handlers interacted with Borsheims customers and zoo supporters. Guests could learn about and touch snakes, exotic birds, lizards, a tortoise and an opossum while enjoying drinks and hors d’oeuvres. They were also able to shop Borsheims wide selection of jewelry, watches, and fine gifts, including several animal-themed jewelry pieces.

A portion of all sales of Borsheims exclusive Kalahari Dream Diamond collection, Signature Diamond collection and lab-grown diamond collection from Aug. 3 were donated to the zoo for the Asian Highlands exhibit.

Borsheims Fine Jewelry and Gifts is one of the nation’s largest independent jewelry stores and a member of the Berkshire Hathaway family.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
