Help critique this diamond

I have been looking intensely online for the perfect diamond for the past week. Some of the ones I chose are already taken. I have used diamond scenes, yond4cs and diamondpro as my source material. But without any previous experience, I still can’t decide.

** Target **: Similar to a previous post, I’m looking for the most brilliant / popping diamond that is at least 1ct online. Most likely, YES like BN’s pictures just aren’t as good.

** Criteria **:

7000-8500 CAD for loose diamond.

Clip: top priority – excellent

weight: 1 ct +

Color: D if budget allows, but I go as low as F.

Clarity: SI1 +, as long as it is eye-cleaning

Inflorescence: indefinite

My current top choice is this, but are the true hearts cut worth it?

My previous top choice was this, but rejected due to strong inflorescence. The crown angle is 1.5 higher than the recommended according to beyond4c.

Now about fluorescence … I was sure there is a small chance that it will affect the diamond, and even if it does, I can return it …
