Fathers deserve a dash of Martin Katz, too!

Men’s Cufflinks by Martin Katz Make a Statement


Father’s Day in the United States was founded in 1910, two years after the 1908 establishment of a formal holiday celebrating mothers. After hearing a church sermon about Mother’s Day, a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd thought it would be appropriate to have a similar holiday honoring fathers.


Her own father, William Jackson Smart, was a Civil War veteran and widower who raised six children as a single parent. Dodd, a resident of Spokane, WA, spoke to her pastor about it, and suggested June 5, her father’s birthday, as a suitable date. Her pastor and several others in the city liked the idea, but pushed the date back to the third Sunday of June in order to have time to prepare their sermons.


The holiday took some time to catch on nationally, but in the 1930s, Dodd gained the help of some trade organizations in promoting it, namely from the makers of ties and tobacco pipes, both traditional gifts for men at the time. Today, as the Ace Hardware commercial sings, power tools are the Father’s Day equivalent of flowers for Mom.


But does a drill really say the same thing as a pair of cufflinks? A magnificent pair cufflinks, or a single diamond stud earring will sharpen any outfit. A diamond wedding band is also a great addition to Dad’s durable everyday wedding ring.


Check out how these male celebrities made a statement in Martin Katz cufflinks and studs:

Tyler Perry Diamond Lapel Pin Celebrity Jewelry

Tyler Perry wears jeweled studs and a diamond lapel pin as a presenter at the 2014 Oscars. Diamond pins are as stylish on men as they are on women: just look for one with strong, bold design like this, instead of delicate and airy.
