Billionaire Warren Buffett hopes to sell more than $2 million worth of jewelry to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders when he returns to the sales floor at Borsheim's on Sunday afternoon.

Buffett told shareholders in his annual letter that he sold $1.5 million worth of jewelry last year, so he wants to top that.

Buffett has sold jewelry at the Berkshire-owned store in west Omaha during each of the past two years during the annual meeting celebrations.

Besides selling jewelry, Buffett plans to schmooze with Berkshire shareholders over a few hands of bridge and at two of his favorite steak restaurants.

On Saturday, Buffett and Berkshire's vice chairman Charlie Munger spent several hours answering questions before a crowd of more than 30,000 people.
