I'm interested in this bracelet, but I have not seen it in person. The BV website and net-a-porter sell it for $350, but zappos.com has it for $290. Does any one know if BV produced different sizes and therefore explain the difference in price?
Thanks!

I can help you with why it's cheaper through Zappos - Zappos is owned by Amazon, and they always have better prices, seems like.

Yes, my understanding is that BV produced (at least) two different sizes (gauges) for this bracelet.

I own the bracelet shown on the website. When I bought it, the BV boutique SA told me that it was the larger of two sizes (they only had the one bracelet). This was in Rome, Italy, though. It's possible that the thinner one is no longer widely available in the US, but I haven't inquired about it. It might explain the price difference on Zappos--I've never seen BV available on Zappos before!

If you do close ups on the bracelets on the model wrists, they don't seem much different. Why would BV make such similar sized (gauge) bracelets (if that's what it really is), I wonder.

To stack them? I don't know! :P

^ :yes:

My BV Cruise 2010 hammered sterling silver and lizard bangle also came in 3 sizes, I bought the middle sized. I think the point was they wanted you to be tempted to buy all of them and wear them in combinations and not just the one.
