No kidding, all diamonds you've posted should be OK, but you don't give us enough information.
Star and lower girdle lengths are not mentioned, and IdealScope pictures really would help us to choose.
I proposed the fifth diamond because an ideal cut I color should be very white.

With no more information, I would choose nr 1 because it is the shallowest.

I don't think the I color will go too well with the band (F-G stones).
What you say is logical, but I'm not sure I would notice the difference if the difference in size between the side stones and the diamond is important.

I don''t know anything about RBs, but QueenMum, your African Grey is really cute
Sorry to hijack - thanks! He changed a lot, now he is more than one year old and his eyes aren''t black anymore but yellow! My female cavalier king Charles is very cute too!

I was just told if the diamond is eye clean and not under magnification a VVs2 is unwarranted. I for some reason tend to think a better cut and color will better suit the ring picked out.

Eye clean depends on your eyes.
It''s possible to see inclusions with the naked eye in some SI1, it even happened to me with VS2.
Paul''s colleague (Lieve) pretends she can see inclusions in VS1 without loupe.

Of course F-G color will better suit your band.
Oh, but what did you mean by better cut?

I will suggest to go for the one that has a better cut, because the are mostly the same color and clarity.

# 4, because:

-all are well cut so that is not the deciding factor (except #1 has a partly thick girdle, so I'd eliminate it)

-it is visibly larger than the others

-G is a great color, top of near colorless and a good value compared to F color

-VS2 is nice clarity

(#3 is very nice if you want to go to H color. I am assuming this stone costs less than #4 if that is a factor for you.)

I was leaning towards 4 myself. It's only a 100 bucks more.

Without IdealScope pictures, star/lower girdle length, impossible to choose.
Number 4 is my less favorite because it''s the deepest.

it seems as if number 4 is almost identical to number 3. Why would you say it''s the worst when number 3 is obviously a winner in your eyes?

Sorry, I should not say that because they all have potential.
But you don''t give us enough information (IS images, LG/Star length, ...).
