Ruby: King of Gemstones Color Before Clarity

The most important feature of rubies is their color, rendering transparency of secondary importance in determining their value. Inclusions do not impair the quality of rubies, provided they do not decrease the transparency of the stone, nor if they are centrally located in the center. In fact inclusions within a ruby could be its ‘fingerprint,’ a statement of its individuality as well as being proof of its authenticity, advertising its natural origin. Only a perfect cut can emphasize the beauty of this precious stone in a manner worthy of its Sanskrit name ‘the king of gemstones’.
