Generally we say 4c for diamand. Now I see 5c at http://www.diamondgrading.com/ . The 5th c means cost. Who proposed the 5c? Is the 5c recognized by world? Can it be used in diamand grading?

The 5th C is the outcome of the traditional four C's...by the time you balance size, clarity, and color most buyers have to compromise in order to get to the 5th C (the final cost). Unless you have unlimited funds the last C is the one that will probably have a real effect on what you eventually buy...while not actually used as a parameter in diamond grading the fifth C cost certainly does contribute to comparison shopping.
