Need Help Choosing Sapphire

Hi all,
I am recently engaged, and my fiance and I picked out a ring setting that we like, but we want to put a sapphire in it. The setting is made for a 6.5mm stone, but the jeweler said that the actual stone setting part could be switched out, so we're not limited to a 6.5mm stone. (Please excuse my ignorance if that last sentence makes no sense!)
I went through the recommended vendors, and narrowed my seach down to these stones. I think they're all very nice, but I want to see if there's anything I should note about these stones specifically when making my decision.
I don't mind a stone being heat treated, but I do want to make sure that I am getting the right value for my money.

Any help is appreciated! I've already learned so much just from reading some forum topics here.

Do you have a picture of your setting?

Also, these are a few different colors. Can you show me a swatch, not a sapphire but a block of color, that's the color you are after?

Are you looking to spend under 1k?

Looking back, I actually realize that I don't like the third one so much anymore; it is quite light.

And you're aiming for blue only yes? I ask his because that is one of the more expensive colors.

How much is that setting?

I like the first one, also it's a precision cut stone by JW so the cutting should be beautiful.
