Jewelry gifts that you might consider for that special Father in your life could include a gold or silver watch, a handsome sterling silver or 14kt gold chain or masculine link bracelet. With a chain you might include a manly pendant with a nautical or sports theme.
As for rings, there are many rugged designs available in 14kt gold or sterling silver with stones like turquoise, onyx, malachite and lapis. Also, many men are fond of masculine settings of small diamonds and other gemstones.
Celtic jewelry designs, such as Celtic crosses, Celtic knots, etcÖ are great choices for Dad on Fatherís Day.

The following are some tips for buying jewelry for Dad on Fatherís Day. He will be proud of you for being a smart jewelry consumer and for saving some money, too.
Here are some helpful guidelines to keep in mind when you are shopping for a jewelry gift to celebrate next chapter of your special Fatherís life.
1. Thereís a big difference between 14 karat gold and gold-plated jewelry. Fourteen karat (14K) jewelry contains 14 parts of gold, mixed in throughout with 10 parts of base metal. Gold-plated describes jewelry with a layer of at least 10K gold bonded to a base metal. Gold plating eventually wears away, depending on how often item is worn and how thick plating is.
2. If youíre buying a watch, determine whether you want one that runs on a battery or one that must be wound daily. Ask if a warranty or guarantee is included, how long it lasts, and what parts and repair problems it covers. Also ask how and where you can get watch serviced and repaired.
