When purchasing cufflinks, don't forget to consider vintage ones. For $225, you can buy a LOT better quality sterling ones. And they hold their value much better than purchasing new (even when on sale).
LOL, for some reason, I knew you were going to reply with this. Thanks for the tip. Although purchasing vintage cufflinks definitely appeals to me, I have trouble finding quality vintage cufflinks. Browsing through the piles of junk online takes too much time, and I haven't seen too many in local stores. btw, these cost me less than $70.
