I have been doing my research trying to find the best diamond for my money for an engagement ring. This is a tough process as there are so many factors to consider. I really don't want to spend more than $7500 on the stone and the most important factor is that I want it to sparkle (Fire, Brilliance, Scintillation). I have been looking at a lot of SI-1 in the G-H color range as this seems to be the sweet spot in terms of value. Here are a few stones that I am looking at, any help you all can provide is greatly appreciated. Please feel free to share any other recommendations as well.

Some of these have feathers as inclusions, I have read that those can be of some concern.
