The Ruby Wedding Mark Zuckerberg Gave to his new Wife
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s wife Priscilla Chan showed off her new ruby and diamond wedding ring at lunch in California yesterday. Her wedding ring features a ruby centre gemstone and looks to be set with two diamonds either side of the ruby. Some jewellers after looking at the pics taken yesterday have said the ruby and diamond wedding ring Zuckerberg designed for his wife could have cost around $25,000. Up until now there has been no information on the wedding ring only that we knew Mark was personally designing it and incorporating a ‘very simple ruby’. The couple married after nine years of being together since meeting at Harvard University last Saturday in front of close friends and family in their back garden. Many have wondered why the wedding ring doesn’t include a large diamond as the ruby is said to be less valuable, but Zuckerberg may have selected a ruby due to cultural significance and that the stone is a sign of wisdom. Mr Zuckerberg's new wife is American-Chinese and rubies are held in high esteem within Asian countries , which have even said to have laid beneath the foundations of buildings in Asia to help bring good fortune and wealth.
