Please help choose the best eye-cleaned middle diamond in setting the leftover stone

Hi diamond experts,

& # X200B;

I am looking for an engagement ring and have read all of the above tips and guides on the four diamonds. I’ve done some searches on bluenile (my preferred supplier), but I don’t know which round cut would be the best value. I would be grateful if you could help me pick a rock.

& # X200B;

The setting I would like to use is the Riviera Pope white gold ($ 1022 Canadian) or platinum ($ 1700 Canadian), which comes with 0.15 ct residue with SI2 color I … [https://www.bluenile.com/ca/build-your-own-ring/riviera-pave-diamond-engagement-ring-14k-white-gold_56254](Https://www.bluenile.com/ca/build-your-own-ring/riviera-pave-diamond-engagement-ring-14k-white-gold_56254)

The following have been my search criteria in my quest for a middle stone:

* My total budget for the + diamond setting is about $ 5,000 Canadian total (which is exchanged for about $ 3700 USD), so if I get the white gold setting, I have about $ 4,000 to spend on the best center diamond. If I go with the platinum setting, I have approx. $ 3,300 to work with.
* After doing my research, I’ve learned to go with a higher quality clip and am ready to accept a clarity or color of lower quality as long as the diamond is eye-cleaning. So I’ve pretty much narrowed my search on Blue Nile to excellent clips, SI1 or better clarity, J better color, very good or better symmetry, very good or better polishing.
* Using the recommendation in addition to the4Cs, I also narrowed the search to 54-57% table and 61-62.5 depth
* After applying these search criteria, I then sort the search results by crawling from the largest carat size down
* My ideal goal would be to get a 0.70+ carat diamond to the center … of course I would like to be as large as possible and ideally 0.8+

If I go into the white gold and spend $ 4000 on the middle diamond, I’ve come up with the following lists of diamonds. The list is in order of what I (someone who is completely inexperienced with this) thinks should be the best rock:
