Comments: In 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.
The Edwardian era or Edwardian period of British history spanned the reign of King VII, 1901 to 1910, and sometimes extended to the First World War. The death of Queen Victorian in January 1901 marked the end of the Victorian era.
