    I am really starting to wonder how many of these were actually made...I thought it was only 2? How come yours has silver rivets and the other one I saw resembled gold rivets. Did boxes come with the purple Juliet's? Did they make a purple X-Squared or any other X-Metal frames?

    Yeah the pins are what got me questioning the authenticity... Hopefully some others can chime in... I was under the impression only a handful existed... Maybe 5 max, but who knows... Would be cool to have a thread check in...

    As others have said, that would be a hard pair to replicate

    they look like real juliets I cant see any of the tattle tales of the fakes that are running around. As far as the rivets from what a little bird told me they used both kinds of rivets (regular and 24k) to see what looked the best

    Just from my observations the rivets are the first thing. It also looks like the frame had some marks on it before it was anodized. Maybe it was a "second" frame they used to play. But it also looks like it is peeling on the bottom of one of the orbitals as well. Dont think it would do that if it was legit. Is there any evidence of a previous serial on the arm?

    We need to make a few considerations when looking at these. First off as a forum many of us have talents and access to special tools and machine that can modify frames and lenses. Don't think that it's NOT possible that someone uses a plasma frame and can utilize an anodizing process with an iridescent coating. I have had opportunity to use an automotive gold coating machine to plate metalized plastic and metal. I thought about taking a pair of Juliet's and gold plating them. But again am I doing for myself or to sell.

    I am sure that Oakley has been able to work magic in house and make some radical stuff. I believe that former employees know this process and where to obtain the necessary stuff to accomplish it. I deal with a company that makes a specific device that I use, about a year ago the company split and some the employees left and made a duplicate item and with a few changes had a solid design. Don't think for one minute this can't be duplicated outside Oakley.

    Whether or not it's real is the discussion here, but we need to think as time goes by how many more could surface in the future that will make us question authenticity.

    Well it's def a real Juliet.


    I'm not sure there is a way to tell if the finish is real. If it was replicated, there's no way to differentiate
