The little metal rivets? Hm. Have you checked hardware and craft stores in your area? If there is a leatherworking store in your area, try that as well.
As for online, the punk stores might carry them. Try http://www.studsandspikes.com - they carry a few different sizes and varieties as well as setting tools.

well i checked that site already, it seemed a little too.bulgy, and stores around me dont really have anything like that, thanks for helping though^^
perhaps the studs could be snapped in instead

An alternate idea- go to an office supply store and buy paper studs. I think they're mostly copper colored, but they take spray paint well. I used them on my cheap-o forehead protector, and I think they look pretty good. If your using metal on the gloves, you can just snap off the ends and glue them on. Otherwise, if you cut a small hole in the "metal", the stud ends can hold it all together.

I was going to suggest basically what Parasaurus said ^-^. The standard color tends to be a bronze/copper, but you should even be able to find a silver or metal-like color without too much of a prob. :D
