FREDERICKTOWN — With each approaching holiday, birthday, anniversary or engagement, Knox County citizens head down to their local jewelry shop to purchase sparkling trinkets for their loved ones. Jewelers are a huge part of our lives, but how many of us know anything more about the profession than the simple fact that they sell jewelry?

Jeweler Gordon “Flash” Huff, owner of Huff’s Fine Jewelry Inc., 25-A N. Main St., Fredericktown, has been an Ohio jeweler for over 40 years. According to Huff, the jewelry business is usually something a jeweler is born into and inherits from a family member. However, due to his fascination with watches and fixing small items, Huff decided to enter the jewelry world all on his own.
