Q/A on a Brian Gavin Blue with Crescent Moon Engagement Ring

Hi Diamond Adviser,
My mind is set on getting a Brian Gavin Blue Diamond and I really like the setting at this link: http://www.briangavindiamonds.com/engagement-rings/pave-and-side-stones/elsie-14k-white-gold-5927w14
I’m happy to get 14k white gold for the metal type since I think the focus is on the diamond anyway – or is it worth ponying up to get 18k white gold or platinum?
My total budget is about $6,000 . If getting 14k white gold for the metal for the setting at $1,790, that leaves about $4,200 for the blue diamond itself. I’m hoping you can recommend an appropriate blue diamond for the engagement ring. Clarity of the diamond is important, but so is the size, so a balance would be great.
Look forward to any insight you can provide. Thanks in advance for your help!
