The correlations between of lightness, chroma, Cr3+ and color index were studied to analyze the impact of all these three elements on ruby red color; and with the color difference research, the lightness difference is testified to be the key affecting color appearance. Based on the uniform color space CIE 1976L*a*b*, the ruby displays the best red color when the content of Cr3+ is within (1555, 5183ppm), L* (32.64, 44.25) and ho  (354.14, 0.7). With the help of partial correlation analysis of color difference, it is illustrated that the correlation between L* and E* (r=0.999) is relatively higher than that between L* and E* (r=0.948); and with high significance level ( = 0.129) of H* and E*, it shows that H* has little impact on E*. It is concluded that the color change of ruby from red to purple are mostly affected by lightness change; lightness difference should be considered as the most important factor when evaluating the red color of ruby, and then followed by the chroma and hue jointly.
