Walton's Antique and Estate Jewelry

Family owned and operated in Historic Downtown Franklin, TN since 1974

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! 

(CLOSED SUNDAYS AND MONDAYS)  

 

Munzie is Getting Married!

Walton's had a very special customer today looking to purchase an engagement ring, Munzie Giggles: A Journal of Living Large! Munzie is a member of Snooty Giggles Dog Rescue, a local organization that fosters animals, particularly special needs dogs, like Munzie. He was rescued 18 months ago from a puppy mill, in very poor health; he was diagnosed with cancer and given 5 months to live. With special care, treatment and lots of love, Munzie has been living a wonderful, full life! He has since fallen in love with Snooty, a sweet blind pup whom he met at Snooty Giggles.

The two are getting married this fall to prove that everyone deserves love, staying true to Snooty Giggle's motto; "Never be afraid to love something special." We are honored to be part of their love story and to support such a wonderful local organization!

Keeping Memories Alive

There are many reasons why the jewelry store is so much more to the Walton family, so much more to our community, than just a store. People who may have begun as customers, have grown to become friends, family and supporters. We were fortunate to have known Joey Feek, and would like to wish her and Rory a happy anniversary.  You can read more about Rory's special anniversary gift to Joey here: http://thislifeilive.com/to-joey-with-love/

The History behind a diamond ring

You never know what you'll find when doing a little spring cleaning! An article from The Tennessean circa 1983 with quotes from Mike Walton and an image of Melba Walton modeling some of her favorite pieces. In the picture, Melba is wearing the same diamond ring that is now Julie Walton Garland's wedding ring! Shortly before this article, Melba's entire store inventory was stolen; hundreds of thousands of dollars of stunning antique jewelry. Two years later, she was contacted by the FBI when all of the pieces were discovered at a jewelry store in Phoenix. All the pieces were recovered, including this ring! Oh, the stories to be told!

Main Street Brewfest is this Saturday 2-6! The forecast is sunny skies with lots of brews, and... Pretzel necklaces! We have hand crafted these beauties that will be available at Walton's! Proceeds will benefit the Downtown Franklin Association, who supports and promotes business like us 🍻

4th Annual Golden Egg Hunt

We have hidden the Walton's Golden Egg on Main Street between Five Points and the Square! The lucky finder will win this pair of yellow gold and diamond earrings, a $475 value! Happy Hunting!

(The egg is hidden on Main Street, not a side street.  You will not have to go inside a store to retrieve it.)

Update: The Walton's Golden Egg has been found! Congratulations to Amy and Kathryn! 

Taste Imagination

How amazing are these cookies from The Puffy Muffin?! The detail on the cookie rings are incredible with even a little sparkle added to the diamonds with edible glitter! Not to mention, our logo looks even better in cookie form. If you can dream it, The Puffy Muffin can do it! (The cookies were gone very shortly after this photo was taken. They were just as delicious as they were beautiful!) Thank you, Puffy Muffin, for sharing your talents with us!

#Shemeansbusiness

What an honor to be representing local small businesses on the panel at Facebook's Boost Your Business event this morning along side Lee Company and City Farmhouse! Thank you to Facebook for having us! 

The event was held to teach other small business owners, especially women in small business, how to effectively and successfully use Social Media to promote their business. Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn spoke, following a presentation by Facebook demonstrating their marketing tools.  The event concluded with a panel discussion, where our very own Julie Walton Garland spoke on behalf of Walton's!
