Would this feather be a problem?

So I found this stone with the exact size and specs I'm looking for as one sidestone in my future three stone ring. However it seem to have a feather close to the girdle and JA couldn't give me any more details about it. Just that they wouldn't ship a stone with apparent durability issues and that the feather is not marked on both plots.

What do you think? Would you buy this?

Some people shy away from feathers but I don't really see it as an issue when buying from reputable dealers like WF or JA regarding durability (as you got the ok there). Just be sure it's eye clean at 6in from all sides.

Check out this diamond I just bought, very similar feather. It worked out great as it's completely eye clean, there are no big inclusions to deal with on the table (like many si1 diamonds I have seen) - it's pretty clean considering (and beautiful to boot): https://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-2587974.htm
