Happy Father’s Day from Apple of Gold! Today we celebrate the hard but incredibly valuable job that dads do every day of the year, and say thanks to the men who have poured out their lives to us. Men’s diamond rings and other pieces of men’s jewelry are excellent ways to tell your dad, or any guy who’s built into your life, that you appreciate him.
While it’s uncertain when the first Father’s Day was celebrated, many trace the history of this holiday back to Sonora Dodd, a Spokane, Washington woman who was raised by her father after her mother died in childbirth. On Mother’s Day in 1910, while listening to a Mother’s Day sermon, she thought of all that her father had done for her and her five siblings, as was determined that fathers have a day set aside to honor them as well. She encouraged area churches to honor fathers in the month of June, the month of her own father’s birthday.
Over the next few years the idea of a day to celebrate fathers spread, and many Americans lobbied congress to make Father’s Day an official holiday. President Woodrow Wilson approved the idea, and even celebrated Father’s Day with his family in 1916, but never signed a proclamation to make it official as he did for Mother’s Day. Eight years later, President Calvin Coolidge declared Father’s Day to be a national event.
In 1966, Father’s Day became an official holiday through an executive order by President Lyndon Johnson. Six years later, an act of congress placed this holiday permanently on the third Sunday of every June—in other words, today! And, there’s no better day to honor dad with a classy ring.
The 0.21 carat 14K White Gold Men’s 3 Stone Diamond Ring is an excellent gift for classy dads. This contemporary style places three round diamonds in a grove that’s been elegantly carved into a gleaming band. Understated and cool, this is a piece that will emulate good taste for years to come.
Nugget rings provide a unique and masculine look as they use lumps and bumps of precious metal to create unique and rugged styles. The Sword of God Men’s Nugget Ring in 14K White Gold adds an extra detail to a plain nugget ring: a carved sword that emerges as if it is being excavated from crags of 14K white gold.
Or, say thank you with one of Apples of Gold’s men’s onyx rings. The Onyx & Diamond DAD Ring in 10K White Gold is an unmistakable symbol of appreciation as the word “Dad” is formed from shining white gold and placed atop a polished black onyx for contrast and class. An accent diamond on each side gives this bold, signet-like ring an extra touch of upscale style.
Author Kent Nerburn said that “It is much easier to become a father than to be one.” This Father’s Day, don’t forget to honor your Dad for doing one of the hardest but most impactful jobs on the planet.
