@Duncan:  I think rhodium plating is a thing that is done to white gold, and maybe some silver. Other bees will probably be able to explain what this is for better than I can.

Onyx is a semi-precious stone– maybe the cheaper versions of cufflinks are made with a cheap metal instead of gold or silver, or maybe it’s imitation onyx you’re seeing?

Mother of pearl is actually pieces of particularly shiny and pretty shell– in some cases, the shell of the oysters that produce real pearls, but I think more often it is just any attractive, iridescent shell.
