Need Help Choosing Diamond Please

I am finally in the market for a replacement engagement ring since my first one was stolen.  My husband and I are celebrating our 10 year anniversary and I am ready for a new ring.

I like this setting since it reminds me of my old setting http://www.whiteflash.com/engagement-rings/solitaire/engraved-cathedral-solitaire-engagement-ring-1162.htm

 

I am looking for a princess cut diamond around 1 carat.  I have been on this forum and looking at diamonds online for a while.  I really want to stay around $5000 for the diamond and setting.

 

These 2 diamonds appear to be good options but am looking for opinions.

Thank you so much.

The Whiteflash site is not cooperating on any of the links. I suspect there is a site issue, but in the meantime not much we can say or even look at.

 

Your budget is clear, but perhaps (while we wait for Whiteflash to reset itself to working order) you could tell us a little more about what you would like to get in a diamond. Getting a 1 carat princess cut for about $4000 is possible, but there may be trade-offs, and you will have very little information about cut on most stones, which will require careful selection of the vendor even before you think about the stone.

That was the one I was leaning more toward.  The center on the larger diamond just seems a bit off to me but pictures are hard to tell sometimes.

I have been nervous about making a purchase online and have been to all the larger sites looking.  I prefer the setting from Whiteflash but can I be confident in them?  I have not read anything bad about them but don't see them mentioned on here as often as other vendors.  Thanks for your help.
