    I bought some items which were more expensive but (of) lower quality.

    I bought some items which were more expensive but lower quality.
    I bought some items which were more expensivebut of lower quality.

    Which is the correct sentence? If both are correct, what is the difference in meaning?

    Thanks.

    There is no difference in meaning. My own taste prefers the second, but it is a purely personal preference.
