Julie Walton Garland, GIA Graduate Gemologist

Congratulations (officially!) to our newest GIA Graduate Gemologist, our very own, Julie Walton Garland! 

Before Melba Walton (Julie's grandmother who started the store over 42 years ago) passed, she had set aside her gold loupe to be given to Julie once she became a Graduate Gemologist.  Melba wore her loupe every day at Walton's for well over thirty years, making this a very special moment for our jewelry family.  The proverbial torch has officially been passed down to the third generation, and we couldn't be more thrilled!
