The twin towers of Pennzoil Place create a distinctive presence on the Houston skyline which is known for its diverse skyscrapers. The innovative trapezoidal towers were built in 1975 and designed by noted architect Philip Johnson.

Imagine the view that you're future fiancee will remember from one of these sky-high proposals; with a Knox Jewelers custom engagement ring the only memories will be of the stunning diamond that you have selected.
