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.

STORE HOURS

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

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! 

Victorian era gold, diamond and opal broach.  The bracelet portion can be locked into the sides of the broach to create a beautiful bracelet. 

Victorian enameled miniature porcelain and gold earrings, cufflinks and pin suite.  Quite beautiful and unique, we have never seen anything like it! 

Gorgeous, dainty Edwardian era platinum topped gold and diamond bracelet. 

Stunning turn of the century aquamarine pendant, approximately 32 carats, on a platinum chain with a dainty diamond bale.

Junior Gemologist?

We love to see younger generations excited about gemology and jewels! Alea and her daughter stopped by our showroom yesterday in hopes that she had found a valuable gem!

"We just had the sweetest experience at Walton's Jewelry. My daughter was certain she had found a diamond so we went by Walton's and they happily looked at her find. They found it to be a Quartz crystal, talked with her in length, and let her have (yes, gave her!) a gold pendant. I love this town."

We love our customers!

An Evening with Downton

NPT's Soiree and Screening of Season 5 of Downton Abbey was an evening to remember! Decked out in their roaring 20's and 30's best, party goers gathered at the Franklin Theatre for hors d'oeuvres and drinks, live music and of course, Downton Abbey! The enthralling season premier was followed by the after party at Walton's, where the live music and champagne toasts continued. Thank you to all who came out for a wonderful evening!
