Handmade Vintage Jewelry

In 1968, Jan Palombo began creating jewelry in her home. Her passion for graceful design and beautiful materials created Great Falls Metalworks, one of the few remaining U.S. based jewelry design and production studios. Today, Great Falls continues its American artisan traditions.

Jan has been making jewelry for over 45 years and most of these pieces were crafted between the 1960s and 1980s with a few exceptions. The designs are inspired by nature and Jan’s travels around the globe. If you’re looking for a statement piece you will definitely find it here.

Great Falls jewelry is made of 100% certified recycled precious metals. It features unusual stones cut at our own lapidary. Each stone is chosen and set by hand to highlight its natural beauty.

Since the 1970’s, Great Falls has been a leader in environmentally friendly jewelry making. Uniquely, Great Falls uses labor intensive manufacturing in place of chemicals and recycles all raw materials.
