Recently, Mark Zuckerberg (CEO of Facebook) made headlines with proposal to Priscilla Chan with this ruby engagement ring.
Yahoo News contacted us directly to ask the ‘experts’ about the value of the ruby ring.We’ve been in business for nearly 75 years, we have a lot of experience in rubies and sapphires! The rubies are very popular in Asia, the Chinese are crazy about rubies. They are the second most popular engagement ring in China after diamonds.
Burmese rubies are very common in China because of the trade relationships the two countries have with each other.So it wasn’t a surprise to us when Pricilla Chan went with a ruby over a diamond. Rubies are more traditional and conservative, and that’s the type of person and life she wants to have with her new billionaire husband.
The size is estimated to be about 2.5 to 3.00cts in size, and depending on how fine the ruby is, it could be as much as $50,000. In value. We love rubies and applaud the ruby engagement ring option, we just wish we sold it to Mark himself! Here’s one of our fine ruby rings that is very similar to what Mark Zuckerberg purchased for Pricilla.
