    @AnaA:  Your pics aren’t showing for me. My decision would be not to go with the Batman ones. I would want something that would last for sentimental reasons and I doubt that $5 cufflinks would stand up to more than a couple of wearings before they all apart.

    They are beautiful and special. Can you give him both, separately? Do the batman ones with speech and then later tell him about the very meaningful grandfather’s cufflinks and how it would mean a lot if he wore them at the wedding. Or the other way around and give the grandfather ones and how meaningful they are and then later the batman ones for a holiday? Just to wear not at the wedding? Or could you get a batman something else as a gift? I love the vintage ones from your family. Definitely whatever you do use those!!

    @BriansBride:  Good ideas! I love the OPs grandfather’s cufflinks, and think she should use those, but the Batman ones are cute, too!

    I would ask your fi which ones he’d like most!

    Honestly, nobody will notice the cufflinks except your fi and groomsmen – unless you take a picture of them.. even still, most won’t notice!

    I asked my fi which kind he wanted.. and he wants each of him and his groomsmen to have differant marvel ones.

    My SO LOVES cuff links so I think this is a great idea. I definitely think you should go with one of the pairs that were your grandfathers. I can’t see the gold ones, so can’t really vote, but go for the ones which are more “him”.

    Mr TTR has several pairs of cufflinks now.

    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 (Onyx) 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.

    — — —

    To @AnaA:  I cannot see photos of all the sets you are talking about.  Just the Blue ones & Batman (would LOVE to see the Gold ones)

    The Blue Ones look nice enough.

    Anyhow as @julies1949:  mentioned “sentimentality” counts for something… it would be cool to have a pair that your Grandfather owned, and then someday pass them down thru the family when say a Son or Grandchild is getting married.

    Hope this helps,

    To @AnaA:  Thanks.  Ooooh they are nice too.  Either set would make a gift for the occasion.

    Dante made Men’s Good to High Quality Cufflinks in the mid 20th Century… they went out of business in the 1970s.

    You can find vintage Dante Cufflinks for sale on EBay.

    The Gold Pair, you need to look at them for a Manufacture Stamp…

    Or determine if they are real Gold… in which case they’d be stamped 10K, 14K or 18K

    Hope this helps,

    PS… Re – GIANT Photos

    In truth there is little you can do about this on WBee… the program is set to utilize the space so almost every photo anyone posts is going to be HUGE.  It is what it is … so no worries … need to apologize.

    They are both nice; I would decide, based on shape and bulkiness, which ones you think he’ll like more.
