Raise your hand if you thought that Priscilla Chan — now Priscilla Chan-Zuckerberg — would be rocking an offensively large diamond now that she’s married one of the richest men in the world. All of you? Me too.
So naturally we’re all a bit shocked to see the above photo of Chan’s left hand. The ring is small. It contains one little ruby. And it appears to be silver. So you can call me an asshole all you want, but I don’t love it. Not that I expect her to care about what I think, but just like Melissa Giudice, her life is on display now.
It’s not so much that I think she should have a huge diamond, or that she should buy into putting her newly acquired wealth on view, which Mark Zuckerberg notoriously doesn’t like to do. It’s just that the ring reminds me of the kind of jewelry that female undergrads wear because they don’t really know how to accessorize yet.
But for all I know, this ring has some sort of significance to the two of them, blah blah blah, or that’s not a ruby at all but some kind of fancy gemstone that’s so expensive, I don’t even know about it. Totally possible. Anyway, what do you think?
