Hello all,

I'm in the market for an engagement ring and finally feel like I know what I am looking for. I have decided that I am comfortable with spending somewhere around $5,000 for a diamond and would like to keep the whole package around $6,000 but could go a little higher if needed. I am comfortable with H color and above but have heard that I's can face up white with a great cut so they aren't totally out of the picture for me. I am also looking for something that is eye clean. Would anyone happen to have any opinions on the stones below or any other suggestions that I can look into? I have them both on hold and am awaiting side by side pics to determine if I am comfortable with an I color.

Also, my girlfriend currently wears a size 5.5 ring on her right ring finger but it is loose and often spins so I'm assuming that she would need a smaller size than that. Any suggestions on different diamonds and settings would be awesome. She would either like a nice solitaire or a setting with small diamonds around the band (pave?). Thank you in advance!
