Chan graduated from medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, on Monday, the same day Zuckerberg turned 28.

The couple met at Harvard and have been together for more than nine years.A source authorised by the couple to speak said Zuckerberg designed the ring featuring "a very simple ruby."

The ceremony took place in Zuckerberg's backyard in front of fewer than 100 guests, who all thought they were there to celebrate Chan's graduation.
