About Great Falls Metalworks
In love with gemstones..
In 1968, a young artist and her machinist husband began creating jewelry in their Paterson, N.J. home. Today, 60 years, and three generations later, the company continues its American artisan traditions under designer and daughter Flora Brothers and grandchildren, Zane Brothers and Kieu Luu. Collections include fine and fashion jewelry, pins, cufflinks, and one-of-a-kind pieces—featuring unusual, high-quality stones and recycled precious metals. Every piece is handmade in the 19th-century former mill the company calls home. Great Falls jewelry is sold by leading national and international retailers, catalogs, small boutiques, gift shops and museums.
The company focuses on elegant and beautiful design and quality materials (which include unusual stones sourced from around the world and cut at the company's own lapidary). Great Falls also provides custom design and commission pieces. And since its founding by Jan Palombo and Michael Brothers in 1968, the company has never used toxic chemicals and recycles materials and byproducts - making it one of the nation's first "green" jewelry manufacturers.
Flora Brothers grew up making jewelry with her parents at Great Falls. She studied Fine Art in England and has a passion for collecting unusual minerals 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.
