There are different types of Cufflinks which have been named by the way they look or the function they have. Following are a few examples of these cufflinks :

  1. Whaleback Cufflinks : The distinctive toggle of this cufflink mirrors the graceful shape of a whale's tail, giving rise to its aptly coined name, "Whaleback.".
  1. Bullet-Back Cufflinks : True to their name, these cufflinks exhibit a design reminiscent of a classic button or stud.
  1. Chain-link Cufflinks : Chain link cufflinks boast a timeless legacy, predating the Industrial Revolution. Constructed from two typically identical faces, these cufflinks are elegantly connected by a delicate chain.
  1. Ball-Return Cufflinks : These feature a substantial rear ball connected to the decorative face by a chain or curved post; their enduring design lacks moving parts, though securing them can be more intricate
  1. Locking Dual-Action Cufflinks : A modern choice, closing securely with a wristwatch-like mechanism; both faces are identical, adding a visual aesthetic to either side of your sleeve.
  1. Silk-knot Cufflinks : Fashioned from vibrant silk with twin knots, add a playful touch ideal for casual occasions but are less suitable for formal or professional settings.
