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.
