Cufflinks aren’t just for James BondCufflinks are traditionally worn with semi-formal to formal tuxedo outfit. Gold cufflinks are typically more appropriate for daytime formal wear. It will surprise you, however, that there are varieties of cufflinks that can help dress down a look with their playful designs. There are many designs of gold cufflinks, each unique in their own way.
Whale backThey are topped by a flattened piece of material, whether it’s stainless steel, sterling silver or another type of metal while attached to a straight post. A popular choice for the ease of use because you simply need to flip the “whale tail” closure against the post to lock in the cufflink.
Bullet backAnother common choice of cufflinks due to the simplicity of the design and security. The posts of the cufflinks are a frame where a secondary post nestles in between and can turn a 90-degree angle to lock the cufflink in place. Most gold cufflinks we sell at Trendhim have a bullet back design.
Button backChosen due to its subtlety, button back cufflinks are traditionally smaller and lighter in weight. They are also the most secure because it consists of two heads that need to be straightened out to lock in place without further moving parts. Button back cufflinks are also the hardest the wear.
Chain linkDesigns show on both sides of the cuff while connected with a chain in the middle. Chain link cufflinks are the most traditional design of cufflinks, they are more decorative and gives a looser fit than the rest of the cufflink designs.
LockingThe most innovative design of the bunch, cufflinks with locking design simply need to be folded to be locked in place. Similar design and function as a wrist watches’ locking mechanism, this cufflink design is modern and the most secure of the rest.
KnotUnlike the traditional use of metals and hard materials for the design of the cufflink, knot gold cufflinks are connected by a short piece with two decorative heads that are usually made of soft cord or silk. The heads are beautifully knitted knots that create a more casual style for the wearer.
