Help with Antique Cushion

I am considering this ring (would replace the setting) and am caught up with the darkness in the facet at the 1pm position above the culet (please see video link below).

Am I being too nit picky? Conscious that this is a true antique stone, is it expected that there will be 1-2 dark facets as the stone rotates for most other antique stones as well? Due to the pandemic, I have not been able to see any antique stones in person but plan on it in December, potentially visiting Grace's showroom.

I really like the setting. But not set on the diamond. Can you ask Grace to take some more videos for you in different lighting?

Thank you both for the advice! I agree, wasn’t wowed, so will try to see it in person later this year if it’s still available.

This video is not helpful.

I think you need a video in different lighting and much closer to see the facets. She has done those before.

You are going to have on and off facets, but this is not helpful at all.
