Ippolita on Rue La La!!!

AHHHHHH!  Only a few days after I finally decide to spring for some Ippolita bangles at Saks, and moments after I mention in my last post how I bought them, I receive an email from Rue La La informing me that there's an Ippolita sale today!  So against my better judgment, I take a look, and the prices are fantastic.  The selection is pretty great too.  I had only bought 2 bracelets at Saks, with the intention of adding on later, but this is soooo tempting!  On the other hand, I'm still faced with the same problem of alterations-- these are the standard Ippolita size, which means I'd have to go to a jeweler to get it fixed.  And I have NO idea how much that would cost.  As you can see below, this wouldn't be an easy adjustment.  Ok, I'm going to stew a little and try to make a decision.  Hopefully no one buys this bracelet while I'm wondering.  And for those of you who don't have my problems but love Ippolita, go buy some jewelry at Rue La La NOW!

Ippolita Rose Moonstone Bangle
This bracelet is currently in my cart, selling for $219 (as opposed to $425).  Would be a nice addition to my  2 silver bangles, right?  But note the 5 distinct sections that would each have to be adjusted to keep the bracelet proportionate.  Anyone know how involved/how expensive this may be?
