What is a Ruby?

Ruby is a pinkish-red to a blood-red colored gemstone, making it one of the most popular traditional jewelry gems. It is also very durable, meaning it can last many years if properly cared for. The quality of a ruby is determined by its color, cut, clarity, and provenance, which all affect its value. The brightest and most valuable shade of red, called blood-red or pigeon blood, commands a large premium over other rubies of similar quality.
