    Adjusting bracelet with butterfly clasp?

    I have this stainless steel bracelet that has a butterfly clasp and I'm stuck between two links. If I add one it's too loose, but if I take one away it's too tight. I can not live with either. It's just too much of each

    Also the bracelet doesn't have half links. In reality I need to be able to micro adjust the looser of the two options. If I could do that it would fit perfectly.

    Is is there any way to do that on a butterfly clasp, or am I sweet out of luck and $40 poorer for it?

    Usually they try to include half links with those style bracelets, but yea, unfortunately, you're basically SOL, man.

    My thoughts too :( I contacted the seller but they don't have half links for it.

    Lesson learned, I guess. If you buy a bracelet with butterfly clasp make sure it comes with half links. It better still avoid butterfly clasps altogether.

    At least ur out 40 dollars. Had the same issue with a montblanc and ended up selling it at about a 700 dollar loss.

    I have stayed away from butterfly clasps ever since.

    Butterfly clasps look great and work great IF you can get the bracelet sized correctly.

    But if you are an in-betweener, then most of the time you are out of luck.

    I too tend to stay away from butterfly clasps for this very reason.
