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 5:00 pm.  Come on in and discover, or rekindle, your passion for antique jewelry!

The Big Fake Wedding

We are thrilled to have been hand selected to take part in Nashville's The Big Fake Wedding on March 29th at Covey Rise! We will be outfitting one lucky bride and her bridesmaids as well as the groom with fabulous Walton's pieces!

"Complete with a cocktail-style dinner, an emotional vow renewal ceremony and a dance-party reception, The Big Fake Wedding has become a killer alternative to a bridal show. The hand-selected vendors perform their services as they would at a real wedding, and the "wedding guests" (brides-to-be, bridesmaids and friends/family!) get to hear the music, taste the cakes, and smell the flowers... while enjoying a night of great food, dancing and surprises."

NPT Appraisal Day

Mike and Julie are at The Factory in Franklin today for the annual NPT Appraisal Day! (Think Antique Road Show style fundraising event for the network!)  The funds raised help support NPT (Nashville Public Television) to continue airing shows like Downton Abbey (a personal favorite!)! 

We see many jewelry treasures throughout the event, but our favorite thus far? This fabulous Tiffany & Co. Old Mine cut and Old European cut diamond ladies platinum watch, circa 1910! We have estimated the value to be in the ballpark of $20,000! A gorgeous find, indeed!

PUPPIES!

Diamonds, errr, PUPPIES are a girls best friend! 

Join us this Saturday, April 29th, during the 34th Annual Main Street Festival as we host these ADORABLE pups from the Williamson County Animal Center that will be up for adoption! They will be snuggling and playing in our window, just waiting for their forever home.

Walton's Goes to Facebook

"Behind every business is a person, and behind every person is a story."

We are thrilled to announce that Facebook has hand-selected our very own, Julie Walton Garland, to be a part of its 2017 Small Business Council, a unique collection of small businesses from all over the country!

As one of only 11 businesses chosen for this year's Council, Julie had the rare opportunity to spend a few days at Facebook's Silicon Valley headquarters last week. Through this program, we will be learning from Facebook, and they'll be learning from us - all part of the mission to grow our business. We could not be more excited and honored for this extraordinary opportunity! Read more about Julie and the council here:
