When searching for fancies I would not limit yourself to looking at 'ideal' stones. Most vendors classify stones into ideal, premium, etc. categories based on certain specs of the stone. You can still have a well cut stone that is classified as good cut when it comes to a fancy. The deciding factors when choosing a fancy online are a image of the stone and ASET.

Not a fancy expert, but I think these might be better choices. Someone else will chime in with other suggestions.

Definitly not any of the 1.8ish stones. The faceting pattern on each of those is not very attractive. The 2.01 is the only one
that has any hope. You need to request an aset image to check on the light return.

I'll take a look around and see what I can find.

Did your GF ask for a cushion? You do know that there are lots of different looks for a cushion? I'm not really seeing
much in your size/price range that looks attractive. You might need to drop down in size. Looks like you have a lot
more options if you drop down to 1.7+. Is your budget around $13k?

Here is a decent looking J but you probably will see some color in it at times.

Edit - I just saw your price range is in the $12k-ish area.
