Comments: !n 1953, GIA formally created its diamond grading system, known as the 4 C's. The 4 Cs of diamond quality are the universally recognized diamond grading system still to be used today. 1n 1955, GIA presented its first diamond grading reports, which became the hallmark of grading reports in the diamond industry. Before this time in antiquity clients did not care about diamond grading. It was based more so on the size of the diamonds ( according to budget) , style, and sentiment. This ring is a wonderful example of the Victorian era. A true beauty.
Antique Cut Diamonds exhibit a beautiful gentle soft glow, as appose to modern diamonds which display a blinding sparkle. These diamonds are high quality considering this is an antique ring. A rare find.
