All purchases from Walton's include a point-of-sale report which can be submitted to your insurer. Upon request, we also offer formal written appraisals done by our GIA Gemologists for items purchased from us. These appraisals can be forwarded or given to your insurance agent to have added to your policy, something that we encourage our customers to do in order to safeguard themselves against theft or damage.
FIRST YEAR AFTER PURCHASE:
- First custom fit sizing is complimentary with purchase
- Tightening loose stone(s)
- Repairing a cracked or split shank if broken at the sizing seam
- Broken prongs due to setting defect (not due to normal wear)

AFTER ONE YEAR WARRANTY:
We are happy to help with all of your repair needs after one year, or repairs outside of the above mentioned. Repair fees will apply. Please contact us or visit our showroom to discuss further details and pricing.
To receive an estimate, our repair specialist will need to inspect your piece in person. Once we receive the jewelry, we will contact you with a cost estimate, which you can approve and submit to your insurance company.
Note: We do not offer a same-day repair service (i.e. ring resizing, prong re-tipping, resetting, etc.). If you are purchasing a ring from us, we will, however, accommodate resizing at the time of purchase as quickly as we can.
All carat weights and measurements are approximations. The diamonds and other stones are not removed from the jewelry, thus the carat weight measurements are generated using the GIA formulas for approximating carat weight for stones while in a mounting, unless otherwise stated.
Purchasers of colored gemstones should be aware that natural gemstones are processed from the time they are extracted from the earth by one or more traditionally accepted trade practices. Some or all colored gemstones are subject to colored gemstone enhancement processes.

Walton's rebuilt my 1930s antique engagement ring when one prong got completely sheared off and my diamond fell out. I took it to them knowing they would handle the rebuild beautifully and my goodness did they exceed my expectations!! Lensey was a dream to work with and kept me updated along the way. Forever thankful to the Walton's team!Franklin, TN
Walton's helped me design a custom ring with my original diamond and my late mom's diamond from her engagement ring along with some small stones from a pair of her earrings. They were so wonderful to work with, and I will wear this knowing and feeling my mom is with me. It's absolutely beautiful, and I will treasure it forever.Murfreesboro, TN
So incredibly pleased! Walton's not only repaired a broken ring but resized my wedding band and engagement ring. They are absolutely perfect!! Their customer service and knowledge is paramount. I wouldn't take my jewelry anywhere else. Thank you Walton's for being amazing on so many levels.Nolensville, TN
I recently took several pieces to Walton's for repairs and redesigns of two rings. I am beyond thrilled with the level of care and quality of workmanship!! Mary was especially lovely to work with and the entire staff at Walton's is always so welcoming. Receiving each piece as it was restored has been like Christmas morning each time I go to their store! I can't imagine trusting my heirlooms with anyone else - a business that prides itself on offering unique, estate pieces!Franklin, TN
Excellent service, quick and excellent work done by the jewelers, and some of the finest customer interactions.Nashville, TN
I had an estate diamond and emerald ring repaired at Walton's and I couldn't be happier with the result. Further, the staff is warm and so inviting. And they have such a passion for historical pieces!Columbia, TN
