One of the foremost sellers of Waterford Crystal in the world, Houston-based Bering’s is the proud purveyor of one of only six full-scale crystal guitars ever produced by the design house. This one — handmade, mouth-blown and fused by master craftsmen in Waterford City, Ireland — was shaped in the form of a Gibson L-7. Bering’s is selling the one-of-a-kind instrument — yes, the strings do play — for an impressive $30,000. Clearly unique!

Houstonians have visited the Shaftel family for custom baubles and high-quality gemstones for decades, most recently at their showroom on the ground floor of a Richmond Ave. office building. Now, Shaftel Diamonds has a luxury storefront that's just as radiant as its jewels, located at the corner of San Felipe and Chimney Rock in the heart of Tanglewood.
