A Look At All 14 Of Victoria Beckham’s Engagement Rings
It shouldn’t surprise you to learn that Victoria Beckham leads a fairly extravagant life. Between her properties tucked away all around the world, her couture-filled closet and her fleet of luxury cars, VB is in a class of her own. But maybe her most extravagant lifestyle indulgences are her 14 engagement rings.
Yes, you read that correctly. No, we’re not lying to you.
Over the course of their nearly-20 year marriage, David Beckham—whose family name is worth an estimated $1 billion, oy vey—has gifted his wife with 14 different engagement rings as a token of his love.
From the very first simple design, to the range of rocks she wears now, VB has a veritable diamond carousel of engagement jewellery to pick from. It’s not clear whether David always purchases them for her, or whether Victoria also chips in or buys them for herself, but once the ring is in the collection, she cycles through them with consistent regularity.
To get a closer look at the diamond vault VB is working with these days, we did an in-depth investigation into all 14 rings.
1998: The marquise-cut diamond on a yellow gold band When David Beckham first proposed to Victoria in 1998, he did so with a three-carat marquise-cut diamond set on a plain yellow gold band. The ring reportedly cost around $85,000 at the time.
2001: The platinum eternity band After her marriage, Beckham stopped wearing her marquise-cut diamond and moved onto a platinum set eternity band for around 18 months. The plain design which featured a bevelled edge and white diamonds was the only single band she wore.
2003: The emerald-cut diamond with side baguettes on a platinum band In 2003, Mrs Beckham got her first major upgrade in this emerald-cut diamond with side baguettes, set in platinum.
2004: The pink oval-cut diamond with halo setting In 2004, to celebrate her 30th birthday, David gifted Victoria with this pink champagne diamond ring in a halo setting. It was reportedly worth $1.1 million at the time.
2005: The pear-cut diamond on a platinum pave band The next year, in 2005, Victoria was given this huge pear-cut diamond—perhaps her biggest ring of all 13, coming in at a whopping 17 carats—to replace the pink diamond. It is set on a diamond pave band and is one of the rings she still regularly wears.
2006: The emerald-cut diamond on a yellow gold pave band Investing in her second coloured diamond, VB next moved onto this emerald-cut yellow diamond. The huge diamond is set in a yellow-gold pave band to enhance the colour. She regularly wore this ring with two huge eternity bands to flank it.
2007: The cushion-cut emerald with a platinum spiral setting Moving onto gemstones, Victoria got his huge cushion-cut emerald sitting inside a sculptural diamond spiral.
2008: The emerald-cut diamond on a pave band Although the 2008 emerald-cut is practically indistinguishable from her 2006 emerald-cut—aside from the shade of diamond—this one is slightly bigger. It was designed by Chopard and comes in at 15 carats.
2009: The oval-cut ruby on with a diamond halo Moving from emeralds to rubies, VB picked up this oval-cut ruby mounted in a white-diamond setting.
2010: The oval-cut sapphire on a platinum pave band To complete her precious gemstones set—an emerald, a ruby and a sapphire—the mother-of-four acquired this huge oval-cut sapphire on a skinny pave band. Combo breaker.
2010: The pink diamond oval-cut on a gold band Reducing the size for the year, Beckham then got her hands on this oval-cut pink diamond, which was set on a yellow gold pave band.
2015: The round-cut diamond with a halo setting and round side stones In 2015, VB enjoyed a short-lived love affair with a round-cut diamond set in a halo design with two round side stones. She wore it steadily for a few months before putting it in the vaults.
2016: The square-cut diamond on a platinum pave band In 2016, she received a simple square-cut diamond mounted on a platinum pave band. She debuted it at Cannes in 2016.
2018: The square-cut yellow diamond on a platinum pave band Stepping out in New York, VB debuted a brand new ring. Quite similar to her last, this square-cut yellow diamond sits on a pave diamond band.
