Hello!

I'm sorry to say that these stones are not exceptional to me. The first could be a very nice looking diamond, while the second has an extremely thin girdle, which makes it likely to chip (be sure to check the amount of the thin girdle) and has an extra facet, which personally I don't like too much. Also, is has medium blue fluorescence. Be sure to check out if you like it or not.
Since you have a great budget, I'd advise you to start looking at 1.40-1.60cts F-G (maybe even H!) VS 2 in at least ideal cuts or, even better, a H&A stone with ex/ex or id/id finish instead of good/good or very good/good. I assure you that you can see a difference. As I said, stone #1 could be very good looking if it has the right crown/pavilion combo, but none can tell you without additional data from a megascope or sarin.

Let us know if you can get additional data.
