Didn't feel like starting a new thread for such a low-impact question, so I thought this thread would be the best fit.
I'm currently undecided between the cufflinks and studs sets pictured below for my wedding ensemble. In fact, I am more undecided between material choice (Onyx or MOP) and metal color (Silver or Gold plated).
Care to help me choose or at least tell me if they're some unknown-to-me rules that could lead my decision?
Gold plated with MOP:
Gold plated with Onyx:
Silver with Onyx:
Silver with MOP:
For the record, tuxedo will be black with wide peak lapels, and shirt will be light ivory instead of pure, crisp white (fiancee's demand, not my idea, unfortunately but hey, gotta please the lady!).
Thanks guys and all the best!
Congratulations on the wedding (though I think I said that in the Wedding thread, didn't I?) I would choose either of the middle pairs, because of the fixed back, rather than the heavy toggle hardware. I would also go with black, rather than MoP, with the ivory shirt, as the MoP will show the yellowness of the shirt. Double sided are ideal, but you can't always find those. However, one does not HAVE to match your cuff links to your studs, so if you come across a nice, very plain, pair of double sided links, in the same colour family as your studs, then you can certainly wear them.
I prefer silver in general, but I think in your case, silver is best, again because gold might pick up the yellow in the ivory shirt, and draw attention to it. So third from the top (Onyx/Silver with fixed back) has my vote.
