Hello all,

I am looking for a new engagement ring after I lost my original one (so traumatic!) and I just am so thankful for this forum. I was hoping that some of you would help me choose a new diamond. My hope is to find one through GOG and get a Mark Morrell setting. I was looking to spend around $6000 on the diamond, but up to $7500 if I found a beautiful stone.

Here's one I'm interested in:

Here's another diamond I was looking at:

Finally, here's a stone that is the most expensive but might be just right? I am so bad with deciphering the numbers...

If you were me, which would you choose? The J SI2, the F VS2, or the G SI1?

Thank you for all and any help and opinions!

what were the color/clarity of your other ring? this is quite a wide range, so maybe go look in person to see what you prefer?

also there are a number of used mark morell settings so if you are OK with used you might be able to save some money that way!
