Nikon 60 M F2.8d
Are you looking at the D version or the AFS version.
The AFS version is required if you want to use the lens in autofocus mode on the entry level Nikons like the D3100 and D3200. If you are looking to manual focus, which many people so for macro shots, I wouldn't recommend an entry level camera at all. The entry level cameras from all manufacturers use mirrors, versus the pentaprisms used in prosumer and pro level cameras.
You don't mention the end use of the pictures. If you are shooting for the web, you don't need a lot of resolution. You might be better off with a used D300, which can AF with that lens, and has a brighter optical viewfinder in case you want to manually focus.
As James notes, the 60mm AF-D won't autofocus on your camera. But that's not really an issue for something like photographing jewelry, which is best done using manual focus with Live View on a tripod. So you might as well get an old manual focus macro lens like the 55mm f/2.8 Micro Nikkor (that's what I use). That won't meter, either but again, that's not a major issue with closeups of static objects since you'll quickly see what exposure you need.
The main advantage of getting something like the 60mm AF-S Micro Nikkor is that you can also use it as a very good short telephoto, where autofocus is very helpful.
