This is a good point... both the $175-retail ones as well as the $400+ retail ones are quite nice for different reasons, and for similar reasons... they're both sure to garner loads of compliments regardless of their retail value. It would be difficult for many just looking at the face of the links to discern whether they are the more expensive ones or the less expensive ones...
