Walton's Antique and Estate Jewelry

Family owned and operated in Franklin, TN for the past 40 years

Our store began over forty years ago by Melba Walton, an entrepreneur who had a sincere passion for antique jewelry.  Today, Walton's Antique and Estate Jewelry has become a staple to the downtown Franklin community. Specializing in pre-1940's antique and estate pieces, Walton's maintains the foundation on which Melba created the store;  a place where all are welcome to share in the love and admiration for pieces of one of a kind jewelry.


We are open Tuesday through Saturday 10:00 am to 4:30pm.  Come on in and discover, or rekindle, your passion for antique jewelry! 



Franklin Legacy

We are very excited to share with you our legacy to Franklin; this lavalier style pendant, designed here at Walton's, is modeled after the historic marquis of the Franklin Theatre. The pendant is crafted in 14K yellow gold and can feature a gemstone of your choice dangling below. A portion of each sale will go towards the Downtown Franklin Association. The classic pendant without a gemstone is $350, with a gemstone the price will be dependent on the stone chosen. (The perfect Christmas gift, but must be ordered before December 8th.)

NPT Appraisal Day

Walton's spent the day at The Factory in Franklin appraising an array of jewels for NPT's annual Appraisal Day! The public was able to bring in items to show to specialists, from art to antique furniture, and, of course, jewelry.  Check out some of our favorite, most unique finds below!

And silence speaks for him and me."
