It is expected that a ruby will have some inclusions inside it. Make sure they are as few as possible, though.
Although you cannot expect a ruby to be perfectly flawless, the highest quality gemstones will be eye-clean, i.e. there won’t be any flaws visible with the naked eye.
There is a ruby variety called “star ruby” that gets its beauty from its inclusions. These stones are polished as cabochons (i.e., they are smooth, without facets) and reflect light in the form a six-ray star – an optical effect caused by a web of tiny inclusions (also called “silk”).
Evaluating the Cut of Ruby
Gemstone cut is an important consideration for several reasons.
First, the cut’s proportions determine how pleasing the stone will look to the eye.
Also, the way a stone is cut affects how it reflects light so as to create brilliance and sparkle.
And there is also the durability factor: Poor cut proportions can make some parts of a gem more likely to chip or break under pressure.
Rubies are available in all sorts of cuts, but the most sought-after stones are the round ones, which are also more expensive. Round cut rubies should not be too deep or too shallow when looked at from the side.
The general rule of thumb is that the depth of a round stone (also referred to as its height) should be 60% to 80% of its width (as measured by the diameter of the stone’s widest part – the girdle).
Stones of lower clarity are often cut as cabochons. These rubies should be evaluated similarly to the ones cut with facets: Look for symmetry and some transparency coupled with a nice luster.
You should keep in mind that it is nearly impossible to devise a framework of precise rules to judge cut as there are different opinions as to what a perfectly cut stone should look like. In general, when evaluating cut, you should be looking for stones that are proportional and have good sparkle.
