After Nearly 40 years, Spath Jewelers Passes Torch To New Generation

With nearly four decades in the jewelry store business through operating Spath Jewelers in both Bartow and Valrico, owners Gene and Tina Spath felt the time was right to retire and pass the reins to their children. Their daughter, Emily, runs the Bartow store while their son, Brian, manages the Valrico store.

The Spaths are holding a retirement sale at the Valrico location to celebrate this generational milestone. Shoppers looking for great deals on jewelry should plan a visit to the Valrico store. The store offers various styles and prices on high-quality jewelry, including bridal, gemstones, rings, watches, necklaces, pendants and unique pieces. The sale will continue until all merchandise is sold.

“We’ve been blessed to be part of this community for so many years and look forward to celebrating our customers’ special moments for many more years to come,” Gene said. “We’re just filled with a lot of gratitude.”
