When we speak of cufflink collectors, two types of personalities emerge - the collectors who collect them for their sheer aesthetic pleasure and the wearers who collect cufflinks and wear them for fashion. From a collector's point of view, cufflinks can well be categorized into many types. Be it based on their shapes or for their original purpose, there are literally thousands of cufflinks out there. Here is a look at just some of them, from a collector's point of view.

Functional - These are the cufflinks that, aside from their main purpose, have other features such as opening hinges or puzzles to them. An example is the watch cufflink, which as the name implies, is a cufflink made with real working watches.

Antique - They are mainly considered collectibles due to their age, rarity, or other unique feature. They are usually sold at much higher prices than most newer cufflinks found in the market today. Generally, the better the condition, the more they are worth.

Material of Manufacture - In this category, semi-precious and precious stone types of cufflinks are usually placed here. They can still be include in the "metal category", but most often find themselves in the "Stone" or "Precious gem" Category. Stones like rubies, moonstones, diamonds, and other stone-type cufflinks are categorized here.

Designer - Those cufflinks made by popular designers are generally categorized here. Those that also make men's formal clothing often make cufflinks that are considered "designer" in type.

Sports - This is a very popular category in which cufflinks deal with sports. They usually come with something emblazoned on the face of the link that is somehow related to sports. That might be a team logo, a figurine of some kind, a ball, a helmet, etc. This is where officially licensed cufflinks by the NFL or NCAA are usually categorized.

Commemorative - These are used to commemorate special events in people's lives like birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, foundation days and many other occasions.

Sets - For those who are fond of dressing up formally they probably have this type of cufflink in their collection. These items have matching tie bars, tie tacks, or shirt studs. This group is normally used in conjunction with a tuxedo or variations for a black tie scenario.

Singles - These are the complete opposite to the "Sets" since they do not have other made-to-match pieces. They may have been lost or destroyed or just do not have matches to start with. In some cases a "single" also refers to there being just one cufflink. Folks tend to pair vintage cufflinks of similar styles or themes together to make a set. While the cufflinks do not formally match, there differences can actually compliment each other while providing visual interest and style.

Closure Types - These types are based on how the links close. Common backings include the fixed backing, chain link, reversible and ball return, whale backing closure, and bullet backing closures.

Precious Metals - One of the most expensive types of cufflinks are these. Precious metal cufflinks made traditionally made of gold or platinum or other precious and rare materials. Silver cufflinks are also categorized here. Silver is a very precious metal and thus, silver cufflinks are very valuable items. Even without any other feature to show, silver and other precious metal cufflinks can stand on their own.

With lots and different cufflink options to chose from its no wonder these are considered one of the ideal men's accessories. You are sure to find just about any style, color, theme, material, or option when searching for that perfect wardrobe accessory. From gold to sterling silver cufflinks , baseball to football cuff links, to, well, anything in between, cufflinks really are a "collection" all their own.
