Like a severed foot or an excruciatingly painful torture-killing ordered by Charles Taylor, a diamond is forever. And when someone says “diamond,” the first thing that comes to mind (other than maybe “heroin-addled, AK-47-wielding child soldiers”) is “De Beers.” And as theHouston Business Journalreports
, De Beers is “set to make Houston sparkle” with a new Galleria location slated for later this year. It will be only the fourth De Beers store in the States. As the article says, “The design of the store will feature open spaces, ebony walls, etched glass paneling and a VIP room for private presentations.” (No word yet on whether Taylor will be paroled in time for the ribbon-cutting.) –Craig Malisow
