    Let me ask you guys who knows more than me, about that thing i realized.

    Some of the earsterms of some juliets have a little curve on it, why's that?

    Thanks in advance for the information.

    How do you mean? Are you talking about hammerstems, like you would find on an x squared?

    Only polished Juliet's have what are called "hammerstems" with the little jog. The rest are straight stemmed.

    Romeo and xx also have hammerstems. Xs have a variation of the hammerstems. The rest are straight stems.

    Yeah, like the XX but a little "smaller" you know? So it is a thing specially for the polished juliet's?

    Got it. Thanks for the full information Q.

    I love the hammer stem arms. I find it gives a little more room on the temple area and gives the frame a more aggressive appearance. The ichiro polished carbon also has these arms.

    It seems on the Juliets if they are polished (any color) they have hammer stems. The 24k have them as well.

    correct. it was never explicitly said, but youre right- only polished juliets have them. so polished raw, polished carbon and polished 24k. polished frames WOULD look abit plain with regular arms if you think about it.. the curve in the hammer catches light from more angles and make it look more bling ;)
