Fair price for a Canary diamond?

After four years together, I'm getting closer to pulling the trigger. My girl has very specific requests for her ring (that she has been sharing with me now for a couple of years!!! ) I would appreciate a second opinion on a stone I'm considering. Here are the specs:

Cushion modified brilliant cut, 1.21 carats, 6.8x5.7x3.60mm
Natural Fancy Yellow with even distribution

Table size: 65%,
Total depth: 63.2%
Crown angle: 33.2%
Crown height: 13.5%
Pavil angle: 40.7%
Pavil Depth: 43.1%

The dealer said it's a VS2 but that's not on the GIA report and there isn't an inclusions diagram. Only the origin, grade and distribution are listed on the GIA report I have access to. Those angles above come from a megascope report. They told me this one looks considerably better than a shy-1carat stone they found previously but the price is not that much more (< $2k more).

Assuming that those details check out, is $9700 a fair price for the diamond? My budget limit out the door is about $13k.


PS - I'd love to hear recommendations on settings for Yellow diamonds, especially anything that might be specific to a squarish/rectangular cut like this cushion. My girlfriend is in to classic looks.
