Choosing money clip.

I use normal office paper clip to carry money. It is very convenient, but slightly affects my style :) . Therefore, I want to get a proper money clip.
In general, I like things which are of a high quality, comfortable, reliable, beautiful, simple and easy to look after. Clips with flip-up (also called hinged) mechanism I find particularly interesting. Colour of the money clip should be preferably silver and made of difficult to scratch material. I looked through money clips and found M-Clip, MoneyClamp, Slim Clip, Dalvey (though not flip up) and Tiffany quite beautiful items, but do not know which one to choose.
Also, I am not sure whether I should choose sterling silver, stainless steel or titanium money clip – silver, I suspect, will get scratch easily, stainless steel cover will wear out with time and I know little about titanium – does it look good?
Another point - I want something to put on chain that I could not lose it (if I did not use wallets on chain, I would have lost many of them).
Most of items I mentioned would probably look very bad on a chain, therefore I am thinking I perhaps should have two money clips, one cheaper version for everyday use on a chain where functionality is the priority, and another more beautiful clip for special occasions.
Any advice on this? Thank you.

Thanks for suggestion. I read them plus a few other sites and narrowed my choice to Money Clamp or M-Clip. Money Clamp looks real business, but M-Clip is more stylish. https://www.moneyclamp.com/ . I like painted M-Clips, but not sure about longevity of the paint. If someone is using M-Clip, from your experience does it get scratched easily during normal use? Or is it better to go for stainless models? Thanks.

Tiffany's if you want a money clip; expensive but it holds up well and looked great after months of use. I've given mine away since I no longer use it, and I've moved on to a slim card wallet with matching key wallet in a british tan from BB. I just don't use cash anymore since credit cards are pretty fantastic :icon_smile_wink:

It all depends. If you haven't got much money that paper clip may be just the ticket.
