    For hipper dressing, like a black shirt under a medium grey mohair suit for evenings, i like a more modern approach like these Titanium links.

    Nice. Since I'm a Scrabble nut, I want to get my initials made in the form of Scrabble tiles in either silver or titanium.

    What are the names of the different cuff link types, for instance there are the kind with the part that folds , and some are like a ball attached to a ball.

    I take it the fold type are considered bad ?

    Not bad, just different, and people have preferences.

    Lately I've been on a hunt for cuff links and I've found a set of fine links.
    They are glass cat's eye with a blue water and sailboat scene.
    They are a bit heavy but look real nice with a white shirt.
    Oh yeah...back to the post. I wear cuff links about 2/3 times a week and have about 20 sets.( A box full grew legs one day and never came back)

    5 to 7 most weeks...

    Usually I wear links 6 or 7 days a week; a few are old favourite pairs (e.g. plain MoP, sterling silver and lapis lazuli) which might come out twice a week, but often it's a different pair each day.

    I call the former "swivel" or "torpedo" links and am not very fond of them, although I have a number of pairs; my favourite type is double-oval, chain link.

    I've got 5 pairs,

    My fav sterling silver I very rarely wear out....
    My normal favs(2 pairs), are warn 2-3 times a week...I like wearing cuffs to work, but also like wearing denim (so I alternate between cuffs and denim, lol).

    I have several pairs with a similar design and have never had problems with the links coming undone or falling off.

    BTW, I purchased the onyx/silver links posted above and just took delivery of them today -- quite lovely. And quite a deal, too, given that the comparable pair by Udeishi sells for much more.

    Thanks for your reply. I will purchase one soon. Indeed a pair of unique cufflinks do attract the attention. & thank you for your advice.[​IMG]

    I have about 10 pairs, and I wear different ones about 3-4 times a week. I would have more, but the ones at the malls are so expensive. I've been getting my cufflinks online at http://www.CuffSmart.com. Their cufflinks are very reasonably priced, but their customer service is what convinced me. You should look into this site.

    These are one of the cufflinks I got from CuffSmart.com. They make good ice-breakers:
