Father’s Day Jewelry Gifts for Cool Dads | $200 and Under

Father's Day Gift Giving GuideFather’s Day is Sunday, June 17. Are you stumped for gift ideas? Buying jewelry for men can be a tricky business; you have to know your guy’s style very well, and perhaps convince him to try something out of the box. These days, men’s jewelry has taken on a new cool factor, thanks to red-carpet celebrities who are forging fashion trends. Here are four affordable Father’s Day jewelry gifts that all the special dads in your life will love.

Met Gala-Style Maltese Cross

The Maltese Cross was one of the standout jewelry motifs at the recent Heavenly Bodies-themed Met Gala in NYC. And since that red carpet extravaganza, oversized crosses have popped up at men’s and women’s Resort collections in New York, Paris and Milan. The Maltese Cross above, from the Triton Collection, features a dog tag pendant suspended from a 22’ box chain. Designed in high-performance stainless steel, it’s perfect for layering or worn alone. Available at Zale’s and zales.com for $129, with free shipping.

Put a Lapel Pin on It

If you’re a keen red carpet watcher, you know the best-dressed men in Hollywood and the music industry are embracing the lapel pin. These whimsical pieces range from discreet to over the top; from a conservative stud by classic haberdasher Brooks Brothers to a full-on diamond brooch from Neil Lane (the jeweler familiar to all Bachelor/Bachelorette fans).

Like cufflinks, lapel pins can signal a man’s hobbies, clubs, schools, or profession. More often than not, they are simply decorative, designed to perk up a dark jacket or tuxedo. We love the subtle gold-tone Rope Lapel Pin at Brooks Brothers for only $29. Also available at  brooksbrothers.com.

Speaking of Tiffany & Co., the iconic Tiffany Atlas Collection debuted in 1995 but many of the line’s original designs have long been retired. Around Valentine’s Day, OBJ featured a unisex gold Atlas pinky ring from 1stDibs, and it was quickly snapped up. A recent search shows that several sterling silver examples are available now on 1stDibs for $200 and under. Why not buy one for him and one for yourself?

Happy Father’s Day!
