Brooks Brothers Knot Cufflinks
Didn’t know BB sold anything this inexpensive, did you? These rayon knots are attractive and come in roughly 30 colors. Of course, if you buy the cuff shirt at BB, you’ll have to pony up a little more.
$10 (or 3 for $25) at Brooks Brothers.

Union Jack Cufflinks
These Ben Sherman distressed Union Jacks are my favorite pair of links ever.
I was so, um, distressed, when I thought I lost these before my wedding that I went and bought another pair. The originals eventually turned up and now I’m some kind of anglophilic link hoarder.
Unfortunately for you, these are no longer manufactured. Hop around on ebay to try to find original Ben’s; they go with everything.
In the meantime, these are a worthy substitute:

Paloma Picasso Caliper Links For Tiffany & Co.
Did you know that Pablo Picasso’s daughter is a highly regarded designer? We’re betting that every woman you know is aware of this, as Paloma’s creations are featured at that magical candy land of jewelry stores known as Tiffany & Co.
While she is most widely known for woman’s pieces, her men’s cuff links are more than worthy of your purview; these are statement pieces for your wrist. These links are made of stainless steel with midnight titanium. And they don’t come cheap (did you expect different from Tiffany’s?).

Scott Kay Men's Silver Black Sapphire Engraved Cufflinks
Fierce and elegant; these black sapphire/ stainless steel cuffs are a power statement.
$550 at Amazon.
The big-boy leagues. Yet, this is a price area where the cufflinks just start to look gaudy. So it's actually challenging to recommend multiple pairs. This is the only pair over $1000 we found that we actually loved.
David Yurman Meteorite Cufflinks
These sterling silver links contain a faceted meteorite inlay. We're not certain what the hell that means - but these are stunning.
$1,100 at David Yurman.
