Hello, I am interested in buying from James Allen and take advantage of the Black Friday sale, which was extended until Nov 29. After running a search, here I narrowed it down to the below (GIA reports attached).
Can you experts advise on which ones look the best, or suggest other JA stones? My budget is $5K-5.5K. Thank you in advance for your input.

The F VS1 has my vote. The proportions look good, and it does well on the HCA.

Does the James Allen sale include diamonds or loose settings? In the past I know that diamonds are not included.

Thank you for your input. Question. And comparing the 0.91 carats with the other stones above 0.95, is the difference in size very noticeable? I was aiming to 1 carat, but if there’s no big difference I’ll stay with the one you recommended.

I think it'd only be noticeable if they were side by side. I think you would notice the color difference between F and H more readily.

Noted. And considering the diamond’s size (0.91), should I go with a 1.5mm or a 2mm ring? It will be a solitaire ring.

your diamond size is quite big, nearly 1 carat, 2mm will do.
I am wearing a 1.6mm and size 0.744 carat. I prefer to go as thin as 1mm especially if the diamond is very small, less than 0.5carat and I have very thin fingers.
