PARADE SIGNATURE RETAILER
35 Moraga Way,
Orinda, CA, 94563
Morrison’s East Bay odyssey began in 1923 when William Morrison opened a Jewelry store in Berkeley. The proverbial “jack of all trades”, William Morrison used the skills he had picked up in goldsmithing, diamond setting and watchmaking as a way to make a living. A character all his life, he liked fast cars and bought a motorcycle in his eighties.
William’s son, Walter, learned the business from his dad and took over the store upon his return from WWII. Under his leadership the store expanded both in size and in the quality of the merchandise offered for sale. Dubbed the “flying jeweler” in an industry article written about him, Walter enjoyed a lifelong love affair with flying and owned his own airplane.
By the 1960’s Walter’s two stepsons, Peter and Matthew Berryhill, made their appearance in the jewelry store. As partners, they ran the business successfully for the next forty years, and it was during their reign that Morrison’s moved it’s location from Berkeley to Orinda. Motorcycles and airplanes gave way to BMW’s, tennis rackets and golf clubs, but the great customer service continued unchanged.
David Berryhill, Matthew’s son, is the face of Morrison’s today. He has more than twenty-five years of experience in the business, and a wealth of contacts in the industry. Besides jewelry, David’s passions reflect those of several of the owners that preceded him. When he isn’t working David likes to play golf and ride his Harley Davidson.
