    I recently bought a pair of Juliets with Emerald lenses on ebay:

    And today I had a pair of emerald replacement lenses delivered, also from ebay:

    The lenses are slightly different. The pair that came with the juliets has a more golden hue to it. Its green but appears slightly golden/yellow when reflecting.

    Here is a cellphone pic that tries to show the difference:

    Is one of these not legit?

    Oakley lenses often changed shading or coloring slightly from one generation to the next.I know there was a big difference in the first gen Ruby and subsequent. Not sure if this was intentional or if they just found a way to make them cheaper. Both of yours appear to be legit. Im no expert but have owned Juliets since 1999.

    Yeah, both are legit. The ones in the glasses was the original emerald. The other was the replacement lens that they started using a few years ago. I prefer the original myself.
