An SI2 'cloud not shown' will be prominent under 10x but may not be visible without magnification and may or may not affect transparency.  the fact that you can't see it in the video tells you more about the video than the diamond.

Thanks for your reply. So you would not recommend? Actually, I think the videos on the website are pretty decent compared to many other websites. On other SI2 diamonds, you can clearly see the inclusions.

The video shows a certain "sleepiness", but it's impossible to say whether it's the video or the stone (and more so whether it is the clouds in the stone causing the sleepiness).

 

The market is pricing that stone in the lowest quartile, but not right at the bottom of comparable stones (http://www.diamondreview.com/diamonds/?sortOrder=price&sortDesc=0&fShape=Rnd&fCaratLo=1.05&fCaratHi=1.10&fColorLo=J&fColorHi=J&fClarityLo=SI2&fClarityHi=SI2&fCutLo=exc&fCutHi=exc&fDepthLo=62.0&fDepthHi=100.0&fTableLo=0.0&fTableHi=100.0&fSymLo=ideal&fSymHi=exc&fPolLo=&fPolHi=poor&fCulLo=&fCulHi=vlarge&fFlrLo=none&fFlrHi=none&fPriceLo=1&fPriceHi=1000000000&fLabGIA=1&adv=1) which again may simply be "caution" because of the clouds not shown, or it could mean there is an effect (the cut isn't bad, but isn't the greatest, commercially speaking). If you are in a hurry, I would pass and look for something else; if you have time, it may be worthwhile ordering the stone and seeing it in person/having it seen by an expert working for you: you have ample time to decide if you like it and even to compare it to other diamonds.
