Did you have a look on Vrai, I think they have well-priced selection of H to J VS diamonds.
And Rare Carat is a good market place.
Good luck!

Long story short...the price for the setting was going to only be about $100 less if I used a Lightbox diamond vs choosing my own. Decided to go with my own and it checked out excellent on the HSA tool and diamondscanner. I got a 1.06 ct. Ideal cut VVS2 H color. Super excited to get it! Proposing near Christmas time so wish me luck!
