    Hi guys,

    I''ve decided to treat myself to a RHR for my birthday and can''t decide between these two. I know in the end it''s what I like best but it''ll help to hear some opinions. Which one do you like more and why??

    Thank you!!!

    Here''s the Leon:

    I like them both, but prefer the Leon! I think it would be a little more versatile. How yummy!!! [​IMG][​IMG]

    Didn''t think I would... but I prefer the Diamani.. it has more presence for a RHR, really makes a nice statement on it''s own. Plus it''s half eternity so there''s less breakage likely.

    Thanks for your input! I'm leaning towards the Damiani too which I've actually seen in person. But the Leon one always catches my attention when I'm perusing his website.

    Keep your opinions coming!

    I prefer the Leon because it looks more feminine. I''m not into thicker looking rings.

    Definately number 2. I think #1 would get lost all alone.

    I love this ring (tried it on a few weeks ago), and it sparkles like mad. But it''s super thin, I think maybe 2mm, maybe even a tad thinner. If you''re going for a substantial stand-alone, I''d go w/ the Diamani. If you want delicate blingage, go with the Leon.

    Are you up for another custom piece? Maybe Leon could make it bigger. [​IMG]

    HI:

    I must say this would be a choice very difficult to make without trying the actual rings on--despite siimilairites, they are quite unique unto themselves. That said, I have a pension for Daimani......

    cheers--Sharon

    Another vote here for the Damiani! I just like the look of it better especially for a RHR.

    Thanks again for your feedback!

    Just also want to mention that if you know of a diamond sapphire ring that should be a contender, I''m all ears!!! [​IMG]

    Thank you again!!!

    I prefer the second, I love wide bands! [​IMG] You know how some of us have diamond shrinkage syndrome? I have band shrinkage syndrome. [​IMG]

    Diamondnut, you are girl after my own heart !!!!

    I have been DROOLING over that Leon forever...

    If you go and click BUY IT NOW on his site, all of the specs come up.. width, carat weight, etc.

    The width of that band is 2.2 mm and I think it would love LOVERLEY with your Leon set and potential BEV K !!!!

    Sooooooo, I vote LEON !

    I vote for the Leon.

    But it depends on the size and length of your finger. You should try on some different widths jsut to give you an idea of what suits you best. Also, it may be a question of what they cost and your budget.

    They are both beautiful but the Leon is my favorite of the two. [​IMG]

    For a RHR, I love the Diamani. The Leon one would be nice as an alternate stack for your ering and band [​IMG]

    We all know I am a Leon fan.. but I have to go with the Damiani on this one. It''s much more substantial which is what a rhr should be if it''s going to be a band... imho! They are both gorgeous but the Damiani catches my eye more... Both beautiful choices though!

    Leon. I really thought I''d go for the Damiani but I''m just not feeling it. I do prefer a more delicate ring though and I have always disliked the way rings taper at the back...so I may be a bit biased.

    I like the Leon ring better, but not really as a RHR. It looks like a wedding band to me, so if I bought one, I''d wear it as an alternate wedding band. As far as the Damaini goes, I think I have seen bands I like better than that.

    I like the Leon.

    I think if I were a 5+ ring size, Damiani.

    If I were a <=4, Leon. In between, I''d probably have to try them on.

    Not to throw a monkey wrench into your plans, but what about one of these?
