Cuff links come in many different styles, shapes, colors, and quality. Silver cuff links are perhaps the most sought out color in cuff links to purchase. Gold and platinum are other colors one would choose to wear with a shirt.
Gold and platinum is more expensive to purchase than silver cuff links. With gold and platinum the metals are harder which will make cuff links last longer. Silver cuff links are made of an alloy with a plating of sliver over metal to give the shine and sparkle of sliver to the cuff link. Sliver cuff links are made to last with toughen sliver coating that is placed on the cuff link.
Most cuff links are design the same way with having a clasp on the end to hold a cuff link on the shirt while the top will be of different styles, colors and designs. Still some of the cuff links are made as years ago with the button and chain. Most men will wear a conservative set of cuff links. Where others will step out and wear a pair of unique cuff link.
Cuff links years ago were design with string and ribbon to hold the cuff of the shirt together. The turn of cufflinks then went to a simple chain with a button on each side to hold the cuff closed. As the fashion change and manufacturing increase, metal cuff link with clasp was easier to handle and close.
