Help with Round Brilliants

As an antique cushion lover, I find myself completely out of my depth when choosing round brilliants. I bought a couple and realised after setting them that I had chosen poorly.

Prior to that purchase, I didn't realise Pricescope had done groundwork to make a list of HCA diamonds (this site rocks, lol), or even realise that I could use the HCA (again, antique cushions--it never entered my radar), and I didn't realise clouds could lead to a milky appearance in sunlight. Learning.

As I plan an upgrade adventure through Blue Nile, I am looking through the list of diamonds that score well on the HCA, and I've found these potentials. But I'm scared of pulling the trigger, because it's expensive as an international purchase if I still haven't learned enough (I don't think I will ever learn enough). Can anyone chime in about whether these will be sparkly keepers?

I'd go for the ideal cut, the first one, as long as it's eye-clean.
