I wonder though whether gold is too flashy. I can kind of imagine myself wearing them with black tie, but I'm really squeamish about pairing them with a business suit.

Not in something the size of cufflinks, which should be hidden under your jacket cuff most of the time.

You'll know when you see them. Subtle is better.

I think this is right....here  are quotes from  professional stylists ( on my website - articles 'sartorial advice') :

 

 ‘For a man in a suit, they’re a way of expressing a bit of personality.    They’re noticed, but not too much.   The beauty of wearing cufflinks is that they are a way of wearing jewellery without ostentation – to merely hint at wealth and taste and qualities’     

                                                                                                                                                

 To make a good first impression wear a classic sterling silver pair – they are masculine and always look distinctive, cheap or fancy cufflinks are out!’

 

I think this is right...its hard to go past a  solid silver pair for classy versatile use!

 

A general article 'Cufflink types explained' - on my affiliate thread may help too!

 

Cheers Davo
