A little disappointed, expected it to be fluffier
It is a pretty bracelet, but I thought it would be thicker (plumper) all the way around. Online, it looks like the stations are more rounded over the top and the individual curved links appear larger. I thought it would look handmade like it was crafted using techniques handed down through generations. This looks a little mass-produced to me.
All of that said, it is a high quality piece and I'm keeping it. It's nice and shiny, in a good way, not cheap looking at all. Some very shiny pieces lack depth and come off looking cheap. This looks expensive and high quality without a doubt and I love that. It has decent weight, could be better, but it's acceptable. I would've been dissatisfied if I paid full price though.
I don't like toggle clasps anymore because they have a tendency to fall off and they usually look sloppy. I want my bracelets to lay properly not flop around. I changed out the toggle clasp with one from an old Scott Kay bracelet I no longer wear. Now it looks classier and stays in place. I wish designers would resist the temptation to use cheap toggle clasps and make the effort to create nice lobster or other secure clasps.

This bracelet is even prettier in person. It has a great sheen and is a weighty piece that feels good on the arm. I got the granulated version and the oxidation provides a good contrast with the shiny silver. I love that LH uses the toggle closure since it is very simple to put on and take off. This could be my new favorite.
