Kendra Scott and her eponymous boutiques have graced Houston with their presence, having opened two new stores in the past 3 months. With the City Centre store opening in January 2013 and the Rice Village location opening in November 2012, stylish Houston girls will now have a dilemma deciding which boutique to visit!


Both stores are quintessentially Kendra… with their gorgeous lighting, hip atmosphere and of course, those gorgeous baubles! There are tons of styles to choose from in a breathtaking array of colors and stones. If you don’t see the color combination that you want, stop by the Color Bar™ and personalize a design all your own. Kendra and her team remain committed to their mantra of “Family, Fashion and Philanthropy”, which continues to guide their popularity and overwhelming success.
