These "button" style ones are I think the most common. Seen here from the Bog finds at Illerup.

Tony, there's one possible button from Vimose itself that I'm aware of but don't seem to have a picture of it. I'm in Copenhagen next week so will see if I can find it.

Meanwhile, here's a couple of examples from Thorsberg which might suit? The first set might be a bit 'barbarian' for your tastes but the second, plainer, cast bronze examples might be just the thing.
