In love with gemstones..

In 1968, a young artist and her machinist husband began creating jewelry in their home. The couple's passion for graceful design and beautiful materials created Great Falls Metalworks.

Great Falls jewelry features natural gemstones sourced from around the world and cut at our own lapidary. Each stone is chosen, cut and set by hand to highlight its natural beauty. Every piece is designed and handmade in our New Jersey studio. The selection of jewelry changes seasonally and includes a One of a Kind collection featuring rare and unusual gemstones that is sold only at fine galleries and boutiques.

Since 1968 we have been a leader in environmentally friendly jewelry making. Founders Jan Palombo and Michael Brothers were early followers of a small movement of European jewelers practicing what is now known as green manufacturing. Uniquely, we use labor-intensive manufacturing in place of chemicals, recycle all raw materials and use only certified recycled precious metals.

Flora Brothers is the owner and designer of
Great Falls Jewelry. Flora studied art in Europe before joining her parents at Great Falls as a jewelry designer as well as a bench jeweler. She has a passion for collecting unusual gemstones, minerals and fossils that can be seen in her designs and especially in her One of a Kind collection. Flora's jewelry designs have been featured in exhibits, including Frida Kahlo, Degas, Rembrandt and Couture Fashion. Having designed jewelry for Great Falls for over 20 years, she is always challenging her design skills with this lifetime labor of love.
