To make a button now in Illustrator now just only 3 layer to do. Very easy but it is my style to do it. I think some body will have a better idea then me. Since you are on this page please try it up. Create new first, as what I did mention I like to size it in Centimeter (CM) because my country is mostly used. see image
Start on first layer
By press L to take the Ellipse Tool to draw a cycle. Make sure you have put in a stroke with side as you need. But in this I put 1 black stroke.
Add Gradient with black and silver.
Finish for the first layer
Let's go on to second layer by using a short cut on the keyboard. I think it can make your work faster. Press Ctrl + C to copy that first layer and Ctrl + F to make a new copy (second layer) stay on the top of the first layer. Make it small then the first one.
Then change the Gradient
Alright second layer also finish.
The final layer. Agian use Ellipse Tool (L) to draw and suddently give a Gradient.
here is the result.
Then you can add in some sign to make a nice button by using symbols. See below image
