    Just bought BNIB Juliet carbon with BIP. It's my 1st pair of xmetals so I'm excited about that. The question is should I wear them or put them in a safe place and try to re-sell them in a few years? Of course I'd like to wear them but I also realize that will decrease the value.

    I say wear them.

    @kronin323 will have some great insight for you on investing in them (or not investing)

    I'd say wear them. It's what they are made for. Also, as long as you take care of them, you'll be able to sell the metal.

    Thanks for the input so far. Gonna go out on a limb and say that most will say wear them. That being said, what is everyone's opinion on the best lenses for the Juliet? I'm looking at some ice and ruby on eBay right now.

    Your first pair most likely will not be your last. You can always get another pair and have one to stock and one to rock. BNIB is the only thing that makes it a bit harder to say wear them. As time goes on, I believe these will be fewer and farther between. I'm not looking at it from an investment point of view, that's neither here nor there, but rather from a collector stand point. BNIB is something to behold, and is coveted among collectors.
