Tanishq, an Indian jewelry brand, made its debut this November in Texas—with one location in Frisco and one near The Galleria mall in Houston.

The Houston location spans 3,800 square feet and offers more than 2,000 unique designs in 18- and 22-karat gold and diamond jewelry, solitaires and colored stones, according to a Dec. 1 news release from the luxury jeweler.

Jewelry collections from Tanishq balance traditional charm with contemporary appeal, per the release.

What's in a name

CEO Kuruvilla Markose said Tanishq tells a "rich story," as the name is crafted in conjunction of two words.

"In Sanskrit, Tan means body, and Nishq, [means] gold ornament," Markose said in a statement. "When combined, [the name] came to signify an ornament that adds to the beauty and elegance of women."
