What is the best cut for a ruby?

1 Answer
The best cut for rubies is a matter of personal choice. An oval cut is the most preferred cut for ruby; this is because an oval cut reduces waste. The cut should show off this stone’s color and clarity. According to the Gemological Institute of America, the color of the July birthstone should be a vibrant to slightly purplish red, and that the stone should be clear and inclusion free.
