Hello all you wonderful diamond hunters!

I am in the process of trading in a sapphire that I bought from Green Lake for a diamond. The retail value of the sapphire is $6693.00 and I have about $800.00 to add to the budget, so total cost of the diamond needs to be around $7400.00. The setting I have has a 7.10mm round brilliant in it, so the new diamond needs to be close in dimensions to that (hopefully a teensy bit bigger :naughty: ) It is a simple 4 prong platinum solitaire.

I was hoping that all you lovely experts out there could help me find a few diamonds online and I could then send the info to Green Lake. A lot of the James Allen, Blue Nile, etc. diamonds are available to them as well, possibly a little higher in price though.

I would like a GIA graded I color diamond, excellent cut. Most of the diamonds I have found in my price range and using PS search parameters for table, depth, and so on, are SI clarity. I am ok with that as long as it is eye clean, but really don't want anything noticeable. By looking at the GIA reports, I am having a hard time figuring out what inclusions are ok and what I should avoid, I am a complete novice when it comes to diamonds!

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I would love to get a few links to nice diamonds within my budget to send over to GL.
Thanks in advance!

what about this one? It is a J, 1.42 ct. Would the inclusions be really obvious?:

here's and I color that I think might be ok too:

and here's another J:

Any opinions would be greatly appreciated, especially with the inclusions and how noticeable they might be. It looks like J is more in my budget to get the size I am after. I have an I color diamond that looks very white to me, so I was hoping to find another one. I am worried the J might show too much color. Should I look for a J with fluorescence to help it appear whiter?

The last one strikes me as my favorite, but that is more option and less expert. It ties with the second one in your first post.

thank you niter! I sent that one to Green Lake to see if it is available, I'm not sure what their price difference will be though.
