    Did anyone in the forum had prior experience with either Longmire or Asprey cufflinks? They both seem to be extremely (especially Longmire) expensive, but look very good. I am thinking of buying silver plated chain cufflinks, which I will get engraved with my initials. The engravery of Longmire (fully handmande) look beautiful, but they charge £60 a letter!

    Both are top tier makers. Among current, large makers of cufflinks they are the best. But, as you said, charge top dollar for their wares.

    I have never used them but these two seem a bit more reasonable for plain ovals. Longmire is out of their minds. Even though i love the lady bug cufflinks, that's too much for them and it's no doubt to cater to exclusivity rather than value for dollar.

    The gold here is reasonably priced. I cant speak to the quality. Except for the domed ovel, I would avoid getting a thickness great than 1mm.

    I recognize a lot of the collections from English jewelers here:

    These are different and quite dapper in person. This site offers a lot of other very nice links. Prices arent great but arent terrible either:

    Although unrelated to the poster's request, i thought these were very nice too.

    I just got some links of london plain 18k ovals but they seem to have been bought out now by a Greek jewelry chain. We shall see if they still make nice things like the bamboo link in gold.

    I've never seen silver-plated cufflinks from a maker like Longmire.

    In fact, silver-plated items are generally very cheap, suitable for jewelry in a Thank You gift for a new credit card.
