|Carat Weight||Person should wear minimum 1/12 of Body weight, like 1 Carat (1.1 Ratti) per 12 Kgs.

Not wise to go for more carat weight & compromise with quality.|
|Color||Pure Red (Pigeon Blood) Ruby is best, Pinkish Red or Purplish Red Ruby is also effective if gemstone is 100% Natural & untreated or unheated.|
|Metal||Yellow Gold or Panchdhatu are preferred metals for Astrological Ruby. Sometimes, Silver or White Gold can also be used.|
|Finger||Ring finger of the working hand.|
|Day & Time||Sunday, morning between 6 AM – 9 AM|

Ruby stone price range is very wide due to various quality parameters that affect the price. Ruby stone prices in India can vary anywhere between ₹500 to 2 Lakhs ($7 to $3000) per carat.
Origin - Burmese ruby is the most precious & expensive ruby because of its exceptional color similar to Pigeon’s Blood. Burmese Ruby price range from ₹ 50,000 ($700) onwards, Due to scarcity & high prices of Burma Ruby, it is out of reach of most customers, the next best option is African Ruby. Natural, Untreated African Ruby costs between ₹5,000 – 1,00,000 ($70 to $1300), Mozambique ruby is another source of Ruby & Price can be ₹ 10,000 ($130) onwards. Indian ruby stands low on quality, so much cheaper.
Color - Color contributes most to overall quality of Ruby, thus color majorly impacts the price. Vivid Red similar to pigeon blood color in Ruby is most desirable & expensive. Pure Red Rubies are better than Rubies with Pinkish to Purple tones and price decreases in same manner. Most important point to be noted is that Color should be natural & not artificially enhanced. Rubies are often treated for Color enhancement, but such stones are not good for Astrological Purpose.
Treatment - Ruby is one of the most precious Gemstones & good quality Ruby is further rare. So, low quality rubies are often treated for Color and/or clarity enhancement. Common treatments in Ruby are Heating & Glass Filling. Such treated Rubies are commonly sold as Thai or Bangkok Ruby. So, It is wise to Certified Ruby with Laboratory report that mentions its natural origin & also if any treatment is present.
Clarity - Like most natural Gemstones, Ruby has natural inclusions. Fewer & smaller inclusions lead to better clarity & thus higher price. Ruby with non visible inclusions are extremely rare & expensive.
Carat Weight - Ruby price per carat increases exponentially with increase in weight from 1 to 5 carat & above. So, price per carat of 3 carat ruby stone is much higher than price per carat of 1 carat ruby of same quality. This is due to the rarity of good quality ruby stones of bigger sizes.
Cut - Finely Cut, faceted Ruby appears much brighter, illuminated, consistently colored than badly cut Ruby of same Color & Clarity. So, Good Cutting can really enhance the beauty & this adds to the overall quality of gemstone. That’s how the Cut impacts the price of gemstone.
