Father's Day Gift

I know this is a little early to be worried about but our LO will be only around a month old come Father's Day and I already know what I want to get DH.  He had a coworker lose his wedding ring on the job the other day and DH is so worried he'll lose his wedding band that he wants to get a new one/spare to wear to work and then when we go out and stuff wear his actual wedding band.  Well I had the thought, today actually haha, to get him a new one but get it engraved with "Daddy" or the baby's birthdate if I can or something like that.


My question is, does anyone have any jewelers/ring places to recommend for this?  We just did a local jeweler for our wedding bands and they were quite pricey.  Not that I want to cheap out but I dont want him losing this ring either and I don't want it to be a $400. KWIM?  Anyone have any suggestions? TIA!

Sorry, I don't have any recs.  But just to note, it's usually the metal that makes the price. Three years ago, when we got married, DH bought his simple white gold band from a Chinatown dealer that we knew.  It costs no more than $200.  Just this past Oct, he lost his ring in Mexico and when he tried to get the same exact one from the same dealer, the price more than doubled.  There was nothing she could do bc the cost of gold had risen so much in those three years.

Have you considered Etsy? I know it's a little unconventional, but there are some really cool and unique options (as well as being very affordable). I almost purchased DH's ring from Etsy, just because I thought it would be neat. Just one outside-the-box option! :-)
