|Choosing between 3 diamonds||

After weeks of research, I'm on the home stretch and would really love your expert advice to take me to the end.
I'm trying to choose between the following diamonds. Unfortunately, I only have their GIA reports, no ASET/idealscope images. The HCA value is <2 for all diamonds listed below.
Number 1 (reserved 48h): http://www.since1910.com/loose-diamonds/stone/17237843.aspx#GIA
1.41, H, VS1, round, excellent x3
Number 2 (reserved 48h): http://www.bluenile.ca/round-diamond-1-carat-ideal-cut-h-colour-vs2-clarity_LD02171960
1.35, G, VS2, round, excellent x3
Number 3: http://www.bluenile.ca/round-diamond-1-carat-ideal-cut-h-colour-vs1-clarity_LD02440194
1.38, H, VS1, round, excellent x3
Number 4: http://www.bluenile.ca/round-diamond-1-carat-ideal-cut-h-colour-vs1-clarity_LD02385153
1.40, H, VS1, round, excellent x3
To provide more info re: my needs:
I plan to use a Victor Canera setting, likely similar to the following. There is a video provided if you're interested. (http://www.victorcanera.com/jewelry/engagement-rings/the-gabriella-four-prong-solitaire-with-single-cuts.html)
Number 1 is my favourite, but it blows over my budget of ~12k. But it ships faster than Number 2, which is important to me.
Number 2 seems good all-round.
Number 4 is interesting, but the strong fluorescence I'm undecided on, as the setting will have pave diamonds along the shoulder.
Thank you so much! It'll be nice to get this step of the process complete...
