How do I choose color and clarity without overbought?

Must look at a ring over the next few months. I have narrowed it to approx. 1 carat princess cut that goes on a solitaire 14 carat gold ring. But I can not figure out the color and clarity (have used James Allen). I know people have said in the past that if you go over a certain lab grade, then you are just cheating on yourself, but does anyone know what that area exactly is.

So far, I think it should be I-F and VS1-VVS2, but I do not see where the sweet point in it would be on a very good diamond.
