Hermes, Tiffany, Mont Blanc are high end but probably over budget

You are paying the name and no one will know or care. 

I would look at etsy, ebay or amazon and get something either unique or just nice sterling you’ll probably be more than happy without the brand name or the $150-400 name brand price tag. 

Hope that helps

@smg5281:  I got my FI some through  They have tons to choose from and good prices (I was also able to snag a deal to get a nice engraved box for free).

I got them three years ago and they are still brillient and untarnished.

You will find cufflinks in Department Stores, at a Haberdasher’s (a Man’s Clothing Store) and in Jewellery Stores… as well as some specialty websites online

A basic set will run in the $ 25 to $ 50 range

Nicer stuff more money… REAL metals… Sterling, Gold, Platinum even more

Brand Name / Designer really expensive

A basic set… are usually either Black (to match Tux Shirt Studs) or in White or Yellow Metal

They can be engraveable or not.

Fancier Cufflinks can incorporate semi-precious or precious elements (Onyx – Mother of Pearl – Diamonds) etc.

Fun Cufflinks can be just about anything you can imagine… Hobbies, Sports Teams, Clubs & Associations, Career Interests

Mr TTR he wears a Tux a few times a year (and also owns a few Dress Shirts that have French Cuffs), he owns currently 3 or 4 sets of cufflinks… 1 basic that came as a set with his Shirt Studs – 2 fancier metals ones (altho I have laid claim to one of those sets) – and a fun set.  He however doesn’t have anything that is highend (REAL Metals, Gemstone, or Brand / Designer)… I am thinking that I might get him a special more expensive set in the future for a milestone present.

Hope this helps,

I agree with above posters – brand names ones are expensive.

My mother and I went to a local jewellry store in the mall, and found a lovely pair of cuff links – they were part gold, part silver, with a small crystal in the centre that was sparkly (not a diamond but looked like one), and my father loves them. He thinks they are very vertatile, and classy. The set was well within the price range you are suggesting.

I got the ones for my groomsmen at consignment stores.  Two menswear forums worth going to to ask the question are Ask Andy About Clothes and Style Forum.

Double-Sided (i.e. the same on the inside and outside of the cuff) links are considered the best.  They are a bit of a hassle to put on, so most men prefer the ordinary hinged back sort.  For a suit, it does not matter all that much, and I know very few men who own more than one pair of double sideds.  For a Tuxedo, double sided are worth the effort, if you can find them.  I lucked out and found mine for well below their value at a consignment shop.

It doesn’t necessarily matter the brand, but at that price point you should be at least looking at sterling silver. Most of the stuff you will find at Macy’s etc. is cheap plated metal.

They’re not novelty, but I have cufflinks from here and am very happy with them for the price.

Also be sure that your groomsmen will actually be happy wearing them if you get novelty cufflinks. Personally, I hate them, and have 3 pairs of gifted novelty cufflinks brand new in the box stashed away in the back of my closet.

Guy I recently got myself some cool cuffs from unicuffs.
They’ve got some crazy mismatched themed cufflinks. Google Unicuffs, you’ll thank me.

Hugo Boss cufflinks are affordable. Nice too.

Alternately, look for anything in sterling silver and you should be good to go.
