Prefer E from the info available so far, the D might have some obstruction issue.

Any idealscope image?

I haven't requested any yet as I'm still browsing around. What is obstruction?

Wouldn't do the very thin girdle on the E. Danger of chipping. You need to list the diameter measurements, too. The first one may lose diameter due to a thick girdle, so you'd want to always look at diameter on any stone.

Diameter looks okay. What kind of project do you have in mind for the stone? The very good cut would worry me. The GIA Excellent range is so broad that I would be hesitant to go to very good in cut. Have they examined the stones and told you they are eyeclean?

Even thought the HCA came out well? It will be to replace the stone that was removed from my original ering. It was a terrible, deep cut, no sparkle half carat stone. There's really no give in the mounting so I need a stone right about 4.5 mm

Can you search under ideal cut? I don't think you need True Hearts, but you'll find the excellent/ideal cut stones there. You will have a hard time finding an eyeclean I1 as well. Can you go to SI? Because even at SI2 you'll have to have them check to see if the stones are eyeclean.
