From Our Archive: Deets On Mrs. Mark Zuckerberg’s Modest Wedding Ring

FBF May 27, 2012: “A reminder of why Mark Zuckerberg is so awesome in so many ways!”

Diamonds might be forever, but rubies are for thrifty billionaires!

Mark Zuckerberg tied the knot with his girlfriend Priscilla Chan last weekend and all she got was a microscopic ruby ring.

According to reports, the Facebook founder designed the $25,000 ring himself because “red has more meaning and emotion in Asia.”

We understand that Mark was taking a cultural approach, but really? You’re worth about $19 BILLION and have been together for more than nine years and that’s the best you could do?

Oh well, to each their own! The ring actually went well with Priscilla’s off-the-rack Claire Pettibone gown and the extravagant Mexican feast that cost about $7.50/plate.

Hopefully the billionaire’s next feat doesn’t include designing wedding rings! Stick with technology, Mark. You’re good at that.

Check out Priscilla’s wedding gown and Royal Asscher ring that is similar to the one Zuckerberg designed for his wife (above).
