Whether you wear a suit to work, rock a blazer and shirt combo when you hit the tiles, or only go smart for formal occasions, every man should own at least one set of cufflinks. They can give your suited-and-booted look an extra dash of class, and are arguably the most essential item in the world of men's jewellery.

So, which metal colour should you go for? Cufflinks tend to come in silver, gold, or rose gold, either plain or decorated.

To give you some inspiration, we've picked out some of the finest cufflinks from our collection to help you pick the perfect pair for any outfit or occasion.

Silver cufflinks

If you only want one pair of cufflinks, consider picking a silver pair. It's a neutral colour so they can work well teamed with just about any suit, tie, and jacket combo. A safe bet.

The Links of London Silver Ascot Crown T-Bar cufflinks (£140) are a fine example of a pair that can look as good in the boardroom as they do at a black-tie event. Made from sterling silver and embossed with a regal-looking crown on the front face, they make for a versatile addition to your wardrobe.

These Emporio Armani PVD Rose Gold cufflinks (£82) feature the emblematic eagle logo and are a great addition to your outfit. You could ever create the perfect pairing with a complemented further with a colour-coordinated Emporio Armani timepiece boasting a rose gold face (£114).
