I can spend $2500. Looking for the biggest, decent princess diamond that I can get. Let''s say I want a a 0.75 carat diamond, it looks like I can get H or I color and VS2-SI1. I''d like to avoid SI2, but J is possible if it would look ok. This is going in a white gold solitiare setting - nothing fancy there.

I''ve read the following, and used these criteria to guide me:

1) that the table should be less than depth, and that both should be less than 75%, but not less than 68%.

2) polish and symmetry are secondary considerations

3) less than 1.04 length/width ratio

4) GIA or AGS certified

5) Crown 10% or more

6) Pavilion depth approx 60%

7) thickness: anywhere from thin to slighty thick

Based on the above, I have narrowed down to the following. Some similar ones at jamesallen.com, but these are all bluenile for consistency of info. I know there is not much princess discussion here, but I hope someone can point out anything that might be obviously wrong with these. I am leaning toward II or III, depending on whether I want I/VS2 or H/SI1. Thanks for your comments.
