Victoria Beckham is celebrating 23 years of marriage to husband David Beckham – and rumor has it she has some 15 engagement rings to show for it. When the England footballer proposed to his Spice Girl other half in 1998, he did it with a marquise cut diamond set on a yellow gold band. But according to celebrity jewelry lore, VB has been acquiring added extras ever since.
Shortly after the couple’s star-studded wedding in Ireland on 4 July 1999, Victoria switched to a platinum eternity ring on the fourth finger of her left hand, and – while that marquise cut stone undoubtedly remains the most precious piece in her collection – the fashion mogul has been snapped wearing different diamond, ruby, emerald and sapphire stones in the years since.
As Mr and Mrs Beckham celebrate their anniversary, take a closer look at some of Victoria’s dazzling rings below.
