You already know that Dad doesn’t need another tie. Instead of a quick gift he’s soon to ditch, consider options that stand the test of time, like vintage jewelry. Think handsome cufflinks, watches and maybe even a tie bar that he’ll show off with pride. The team at Peter Suchy Jewelers handpicked this gift guide to spark your shopping inspiration and help you show how much your father means to you.
You just can’t go wrong by giving Dad these timeless 1960’s 14k yellow gold cufflinks. These versatile pieces are both subdued enough for everyday use, but can easily add a sophisticated touch to an occasion outfit thanks to their warm gold hue and rich-textured woven detailing.
Fourteen round sapphires in white gold settings glint from these 1940’s textured 14k yellow gold cufflinks. Show-stopping enough to top off a special occasion outfit thanks to the stones, these special pieces can also add a bit of a luxe vibe to a classic navy suit he wears to the office.
For the dad who isn’t afraid to show-off his style, these striking Italian 18k yellow gold cufflinks have been turning heads since they were first crafted circa 1960-1970. The unusual sea-blue opals are arranged in a handsome square Masonic style and catch the light from every direction.
It’s easy to picture this debonair 1960’s Tiffany & Co. wristwatch poking from the sleeve of a spy in a vintage James Bond flick. The dramatic color combination of the black dial and the glimmering 14k yellow gold details matches any look, and the new lizard band fashioned in Italy adds a hint of welcomed texture.
This Ebel brand 14k gold pocket watch from the 1960’s is sure to become a family heirloom. With a classic manual dial that harkens back to a simpler time and a wind-brushed texture just begging to be touched, Dad will treasure this for years to come.
Take a look at this stunner as proof that sleek and simple doesn’t equal boring. Circa 1960, the classic and clean original dial has been refinished in a vibrant red by Peter Suchy, which complements the lustrous 14k yellow gold. The new Louisiana alligator band was crafted in Italy and will only get better with age.
This handsome 14k yellow gold vintage piece, circa 1950, does double duty. Help Dad ditch his bulky wallet in favor of this slim money clip. Or when worn as a tie bar to show off the infinity symbol-inspired design, the piece lends an old-school vibe to office attire.
