When you picture the wedding of a man who is worth about $19 billion (+/- R159 billion), you might expect a touch of extravagance or a designer wedding dress at the very least. Mark Zuckerberg proved otherwise when he wed his girlfriend, Priscilla Chan, last weekend and all she got was a ruby ring which leaves us rather underwhelmed.
According to reports, Zuckerberg designed the $25 000 (about R209 000) ring himself because “red has more meaning and emotion in Asia”. He is much better at designing social networks, it would seem. Sweet sentiment with the red stone but after nine years together, surely a girl deserves a diamond (especially when your husband isn’t short of a few billion).
The bride wore an off-the-rack Claire Pettibone gown which was about as low-key as the wedding. Although, we would’ve preferred a bit more glitz and glam, the bride doesn’t seem unhappy.
