Borsheims Fine Jewelry and Gifts
Everyone has a creation story. What’s yours?
The Borsheims story started 150 years ago, with a focus on time-keeping from the beginning! In the 1870s, Omaha was a railroad town, and one of the early roles for Borsheims and founder Louis Borsheim was to serve as the official watch inspector for all railroad pocket watches in service on railcars entering Omaha. In addition to selling and inspecting watches, Borsheims also sold fine jewelry and gifts, including china and home décor.

As Omaha grew, Borsheims grew. In 1947, the Borsheims family sold the store. The new owners kept the Borsheims name and established the store’s philosophy: Offer a vast selection of inventory and exceptional customer service, all at the lowest possible price.
