Rubies are indeed lovable but most of the people are not aware of the fact that rubies as well as sapphires are the member of corundum gem family. There are many factors which provide the reason to call a ruby technically as red sapphire. Isn’t it interesting that outside the color red every other sapphire like pink, red or green sapphire is referred as sapphire.
There are different ranges of color available in rubies and they are from pale pinkish red to dark reddish-brown and most of them can be mistaken for garnet. Their prices depend mostly on their color, cutting, transparency, and settings.
Ruby that I have is medium pinkish-red that has very good clarity and transparency. It was tensely set in the ring to view the stone from all the angles. If you view that from top, it would appear redder in color and bit silky as well and when you will view it from the side, it appears pinkish and feels entirely transparent.
