Which lab grew diamond?

Buying an engagement ring and I think I’ve decided to grow lab. My budget is $ 13.5K for the stone, but I’ve found several others at much lower prices than I expected. Thinking of a runway rose-gold setting like [this one](https://www.brilliantearth.com/Luxe-Ballad-Diamond-Ring-(1/4-ct.-tw.)-Rose-Gold-BE164-3015401/) or [this one](Https://www.brilliantearth.com/Petite-Twisted-Vine-Diamond-Ring-Rose-Gold-BE1D54-3821857/?first=diamond&did=7650500&is_tab=1).

questions:

* I’ve heard that a worse color is less visible in a rose-gold setting. Is it worth skipping for G / F, or would H be just fine?
* Does this still apply if the shafts are silver and pave stones may be clearer?
* Is GCAL more credible than IGI?
* Diamond # 5 seems like a really good value – only $ 9K for some good specs and it’s GCAL rated. What is the catch? Can also save some money if I can. Is the belt what makes it “Ideal” only?
