    I have this pair of TiO2 Juliet with one orbital is a bit darker than the other.
    Is that a defect? or natural?
    Anything I can do to fix?

    Thanks.

    Your probably looking at natural discoloration that can happen over time. Only fix is refinish, but some think stuff like that is cool...

    Hmmm...I don't mind the discoloration.....but two different discoloring orbitals? Not so sure. As kronin323 notes, a refinish could fix it if you were so inclined

    yep natural discoloration. could have been in a display case and one side (the discolored one) got more light or heat either sun or case lighting.. i would leave it as-is.

    I had a set do exactly that, only one orbital changed , looked golden brown like that
    in fact it was the same orbital
    Sent them to x man for refinish
    They look like new again

    You can polish out the darker orbital with scotchbrite and dishsoap.wearing a pair of frames that has different colored orbitals is lame,you aint gonna devalue them by matching the color.
