Can you get us the pavilion angle, crown angle, depth %, and table % for this stone? Also let us know your budget and what range of stats you're looking for.
Here a few nice diamonds. But let us know your specifications and we can help you more.

Both of these ones from Russia have good numbers and the first one has a really nice photo:
Since this is an upgrade, maybe you can ask them to notify you when something matching your criteria with the following numbers comes up?
Depth % 60-62.0 (up to 62.2 may be okay)
Table % 53-58 (53-57 may be a little safer)
Crown Angle 34-35
Pavilion Angle 40.6-41 (some prefer 40.6-40.9)
Let us know your thoughts. Hopefully someone else can advise you on the best of the Canadian diamonds available at Brilliant Earth.

The angles on this one are not complimentary. As the crown angle goes up, the pavilion angle should come down. So a crown angle of 35 or 35.5 will work better with a pavilion angle of 40.6. A pavilion angle of 41 goes better with a shallower crown angle of 33.5 or 34.
These two are both only $20 over your budget but fit the rest of your criteria and have very nice, safe numbers. I took a look through the rest of their inventory and a lot of their stones don't have complimentary angles:
