The most important factor in the value of a ruby is color. The top qualities are as red as you can imagine, Rubies are more valuable and even rare than the top quality colorless diamonds. Top rubies measuring, Sizes above five carats are are not easily found. The intensity of color of a fine ruby is very bright Red. After color, the other factors which influence the value of a ruby are clarity, cut, and size. Rubies that are perfectly transparent, with no tiny flaws, are more valuable. A well-cut stone should reflect back light evenly across the surface without a dark or washed-out area in the center that can result from a stone that is too deep or shallow. The shape should also be symmetrical and there shouldn't be any nicks or scratches in the polish. Rubies and other gemstones are sold per carat, a unit of weight equal to one-fifth of a gram.
