Esteemed Texas jewelry brand Kendra Scott is expanding once again, this time to Heights Mercantile — just in time for holiday shopping.


Located at 730 Yale St., this marks the eighth Houston-area store for the brand. The 1,330-square-foot space will feature unique and exclusive retail offerings, including a fine-jewelry shop with a larger collection of the fine and demi jewelry; a sterling-silver color bar with interactive stone trays; and on-site custom engraving of the brand's sterling-silver collection.

Houstonians will be able to take advantage of the mural art wall on the side of the store for Insta-worthy photo moments.

"This expansion marks our continued commitment to authentically serve our home state and support our communities within Texas through our core values of family, fashion and philanthropy," Tom Nolan, CEO, said in a statement. "This store will continue to provide quality product offerings for our customers while delivering a world-class experience."

Kendra Scott established its regional retail store footprint in 2012, and Houston has been one of the brand's largest markets since its founding in 2002. Since Scott stepped down and Tom Nolan was appointed CEO earlier this year, he has put an emphasis on customer interaction and experience.

The Heights Mercantile store will be tailored to loyal Houston customers, offering specialty items such as the Rodeo Collection and game-day gear for Houston Astros, Rockets and Texans sporting events.

Wiley's 'Judith and Holofernes'

THE ENERGY IN the foyer of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s Caroline Wiess Law Building is quite lively, thanks to the installation of two provocative paintings, painted 400 years apart — one by Artemisia Gentileschi, an Italian 17th-century female artist, the other by Kehinde Wiley, a contemporary, Nigerian-born queer Black artist. Each depicts the grisly climax in the Old Testament Book of Judith, in which the widow Judith decapitates the Assyrian general Holofernes, thus saving her besieged Jewish city of Betulia.
