Better Gems = Lower Score??

Can someone please tell me why replacing a bright cardinal ruby(+32 AP) with a bright dragon's eye(+52 AP), which also activated a +8AP socket bonus, lowers my gear score by 3 points?

we just checked that again ,everything works properly ,you should get better score . Are you sure that you didnt changed anything else (some item or maybe enchant) ?

Nope, before I changed anything I had a score of 2221. That was with 4 bright scarlet rubies in 2 pieces of gear with neither socket bonus active. Replaced the off-color gem in each piece with a bright dragon's eye adding 22 AP to each piece and activating +8 AP and +6 crit rating socket bonuses.

Gear score is now 2215.

Just thought that was weird.
