Aluminum Circa Discs 1 inch Set of 11
I use my Circa planner daily, for everything - it's my lifeline, honestly. I finally realized that rather than worry about bulging pages, I should just get bigger disks. My original disks (kyoto, beautiful) were the 3/4" size; I upgraded to 1", and went with aluminum - reviews indicated that larger kyoto (et al) disks could be sticky.
I love these disks. The color is lovely (goes nicely with my old notebook, which is a discontinued lev-tec (?) cover from a couple years ago. (It's held up remarkably well, by the way....I'm not exactly gentle with it.) Pages turn smoothly on the new disks, and it's nice to not worry about how much stuff I put in there. I added a few dividers and my planner/lifebook has become even more utilitarian.
And lovely. Loveliness is worth a few extra dollars, if you have them.

Great addition to product line
Have stayed away from the aluminum discs because I didn't like the bright colors. Tried the platinum version when it came out and I'm glad I did. Holds the paper better than the plastic discs, makes my planner folio sturdier and makes page turning much smoother. Would buy another set in a second for my travel notebook if they offered this color in a 3/4 inch version.

Where's the Purple?!
I hesitated buying these for a long time because of the cost, but since I've had the chance to compare aluminum to plastic, I highly recommend the aluminum, for both aesthetics and function. The pages slide around these discs more smoothly and they take a notebook from cheap-looking to sharp and professional. Just one question: where'd the purple go?!? Levenger suddenly has all these gorgeous purple notebooks to choose from and they drop the purple discs!? Really, you need to bring them back.

These truly make turning the pages more smooth. Expensive, but sometimes worth it.

Pages really do turn more smoothly
If these weren't so expensive, I'd have them on all of my notebooks. Not only do they make turning the pages much more smooth, but they take the look of a notebook up a few notches. I wish they were offered in more sizes.

These 1 inch Circa disks are just as useful and well-made as the 3/4 inch disks. Make note, though, that the 1 inch size really has an inside diameter of 1.05 inch - almost 1/16 inch larger than marked. That doesn't take away from the quality. Wish they were lower priced on a regular basis rather than only when on sale or with a percentage off, but that is the way with a lot of Levenger's products.

Love the color!
I bought the purple ones due to their color. I love them but they are too large for the case that I have. They fit a lot of pages and are very stylish. I definitely recommend them!

I added these 1" aluminum discs to a growing notebook, replacing some 3/4" plastic ones. It's true, the pages turn easier and they look much cooler.

Great look and better function
Not only do these look incredibly great but they also seem to make my notebook operate more smoothly, the pages turn better and seem more secure. Much better than the plastic ones.

All of my colleagues stop and need to look at the rings on my binder. Many have Levenger binders of their own - but not rings like these. They have an exceptional finish and feel. Some of our Engineers have looked at them and wonder how they're made... machined from two sides...
