Assuming you can hit the 75% cap then every single HP you can get from your remaining sockets, base health, enchants, and +health mods on equipment effectively becomes 4 HP.
Assuming 5,000 base health and 20 available sockets (meaning you have a shield), socketing 20 Skulls of Riechliu would get you a total of 35.8k health while socketing 12 Limoany (IIRC Embermages have 15 %DR base so this gets you to the cap) and 8 Riechliu gets you 17.3k health and 75% DR which works out to an effective 69k of health.
If you add in the fact that your potions and healing off skills need a lot less time to refill your health bulb when you stack DR I think it works out in favor of Limoany first. Course this is just a super quick and dirty calc.
