Gene Bowers, Susie Bowers, Jolene Paolillo, Penny Cuttriss and Shonah Landes from Bowers Jewelers recently attended the 2013 Retail Jewelers Organization (RJO) Fall Buying Show in Covington, KY.

The event, tabbed "Gold Standard," allowed jewelers the opportunity to share business ideas, purchase new items at pre-negotiated prices and network with peers.

Hundreds of jewelers learned about business strategy and effective communication among other topics while enjoying the attractions of the host city that included a Kentucky Derby-themed award gala.

Bowers Jewelers is located at 1 Parkmoor Drive in Huntington.
