Thoughts on this diamond?

Hi everyone, hoping I could get some advice from experts here :angel:

I'm in a dilemma over whether it's worth it to spend extra and get a perfect ACA diamond, or just go for an ideal but not perfect cut.

The below stone is one I found on B2CJewels for a good price, could you kindly let me know your thoughts and how you think it will perform? Do the arrows seem a bit shorter on one side? The vendor confirmed it is eye clean and have said that medium fluorescence never has any negative impact. Would the twinning wisp pose a problem/cloudiness?

Also, it seems that B2CJewels doesn't have many settings to choose from... anyone bought a whole ring for them or just the stone? I am actually interested in getting a Vatche setting. Does anyone have any ideas?

Beautiful stone.

I suspect that the diamond is very slightly tilted to right (2 o clock direction) in image #1, #3 and #4.
Notice those light leakage in 1,2,3 o clock positions under the table.
There could have been even less light leakage if the IS image was perfectly taken.

Tilted to 5 o'clock direction. Notice more light leakage around 5 o'clock position under the table.

Another example.. it looks like the same vendor (B2C)

Of course, I am no expert. But it is something I noticed looking at many IS images.
Please correct me if I am wrong.

Regardless, stunning diamond.

Thanks very much for your input flyingpig. The vendor said the stone was slightly tilted, good judgement!
