First you must know the types of cufflinks:
Are the most classy. Have a metal pin that probably inspired your name attached to a metal plate by a small rod. Currently there is a wide variety of this cuff links, is made of gold, silver or steel, covered with fabric or precious stones in geometric form, organic or even with pop references.

Cufflinks Chain Links
Composed of two parts joined by a small stream, hence the name “chain link”. It’s usually pretty simple and clean, but like the previous models, has received upgrades and has for all tastes.

Many people also like to adorn the lapel of the blazer with a cuff link, but then the effect is purely aesthetic.
How To Combine
Correct: the metal combines with the clock and the rock still references the scarf and tie, but nothing is exactly the same pattern or with the same design.
There are kits that comes with the tie, Hanky and cufflink, all combining, all with the same pattern, but the correct thing in more formal looks, combining the accessory with the clock, i.e. If it is gold, gold cuff links, if it is silver, silver cuff links.
All matching: some people love it, but it is considered an error of style!
