Walton's Antique and Estate Jewelry

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

(615) 790-0244

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

The Toy Rack

✨Walton’s family, we need your help! ✨ You all are always so supportive of us, we now need your help in supporting another wonderful family business.

Don Stockton, owner of The Toy Rack, has been selling his amazing wood toys at Franklin’s Main Street Festival in front of Walton’s for 36 YEARS! He is the longest running vendor, he’s been here since the beginning! He’s become famous for his walking wood and feather bird puppets as well as his rubber band guns - who has one?! 🙋🏼‍♀️ He has watched myself and my sister grow up - he and his wife, Christine, and daughter, Diane, are like part of our family.

This may be the last year that Don will be doing what he loves best - sharing his craft with all of you at Main Street Festival! If you are coming to Downtown Franklin for the festival, please stop by and show these incredible people some love! (They will be set up in front and slightly to the right of our storefront.) Come on down this Saturday, April 27th and Sunday April 28th! ❤️

7th Annual Golden Egg Hunt

It’s that time of year! We have hidden the Walton’s Golden Egg in Downtown Franklin! The lucky finder will win this gorgeous 14K yellow gold and diamond necklace. Happy Hunting!

The hiding and hunting guidelines:

  • The egg is outside - not inside a store

  • The area where the egg has been hidden includes the square, Main Street, and the area around the Five Points intersection (see map for highlighted boundaries)

  • You will not have to climb or move anything to get to the egg

Southern Living Magazine

Holy Moly, were we blown away when we picked up February's edition of Southern Living Magazine! The always fabulous, Nashville food and entertaining tastemaker, Katie Jacobs, is featured in the Beauty and Style section and gives advice on how to look and feel your best! Katie's response to the question, "the one thing I can't live without", had us all crying happy tears! She says, "When we were dating, my husband gave me an antique locket from Walton's Antique & Estate Jewelry in Franklin, Tennessee.  I wear it every day - even for my wedding - and it really is one of my most treasured possessions." 

Thank you, Katie, for your continued love and support! We are truly touched by your kind words! Congratulations on a beautifully done article!
