What Is the Value of a Ruby?

Answer

The ruby is a red gemstone that comes in a variety of red, red purples and red orange tones. In grading or assessing the value of a ruby, the clarity of the stone and inclusions are taken into account as well as the weight and origin. Burmese rubies have a deep red to slightly purplish red colour. Thai rubies are of a brownish colour, which is generally less attractive and therefore commands lower prices.

Ruby is a form of precious metal that is a pink to blood red in colour and its redness comes from the presence of Chromium. It's the most valuable corundum family member. For the current information on the value of ruby, check on the gemsociety, allaboutrubies and ruby-sapphire websites.
Rubies are the most valuable members of the corundum Family. Large gem value rubies can be more valuable than comparably sized diamonds and are rarer. There is a relative abundance of smaller blue sapphires compared to the scarcity of even small gem quality rubies, making even these smaller stones relatively high in value.
For you to find the value of your ruby, you should take it to the jeweller for him/ her to do an evaluation on it to determine its accurate price. The jeweller will be able to determine the retail value of your ruby since that is his or her area of knowledge. The size and clarity of ruby usually affects its value.
Rubies are graded to determine their value, like all other gemstones. Depth of color, clarity, size, and the type of cut used can all change the value of the stone.
The value of a ruby all depends on the clarity of the ruby itself. You have to look at the clarity of the ruby if it's clear it is worth a lot of money.
The value of a ruby depends on its color. Darker, or light color almost like pink rubies are worth a high value. Large rubies with high quality are very rare, and expensive.
