Victoria Beckham has been in the spotlight for almost thirty years. Most notably as Posh Spice of the Spice Girls, Victoria paved her way to fame as a singer, fashion designer, and television personality, ultimately leading to her relationship with one of the greatest athletes in the world, David Beckham. As David and Victoria stepped onto the scene, they instantly claimed power-couple status and became significant pop culture icons. With the announcement of their engagement in 1998, Posh sported a stunning diamond engagement ring, but this was only to be the first of many during their 24 years of marriage. Let’s take a look at Victoria Beckham’s collection of 15 individual engagement rings.

For their engagement, David proposed with a beautiful marquise-cut diamond on a yellow gold band reportedly worth $85,000. The ring was made by Gold Coast jewellery designer, Ben Tracy, who has also worked on other famous pieces. 

18 months after their marriage, Victoria swapped the marquise-cut diamond for a platinum eternity band with a bevelled edge and white diamonds. This was the only single band she wore. 

The next edition in this collection of engagement rings was the emerald-cut diamond with side baguettes on a platinum band. This ring was reportedly worth an astonishing $2.1 million.

For Victoria’s 30th birthday, David gifted her a pink champagne oval-cut diamond with a halo setting worth approximately $1.6 million. 

In 2005, David gifted Victoria with her most expensive engagement ring—aa pear-cut diamond on a platinum pavé band containing 17 carats, worth an extraordinary $3.9 million.

Next in line is the stunning emerald-cut diamond with a yellow gold pavé band gifted to Victoria to commemorate her venture into the fashion industry. 

Only a year later, the Beckhams reached another milestone, with David transferring to LA Galaxy. The Beckhams commemorated the move with a cushion-cut emerald platinum spiral-setting engagement ring for Victoria.

To begin the pattern of Swiss-made rings, David gifted Victoria with a Chopard emerald-cut diamond on a pavé band containing a heavy 15 carats.

To celebrate their tenth engagement anniversary, Victoria received a Chopard oval-cut ruby with a white diamond halo. Rubies symbolise wealth, prosperity, passion, and love, which is fitting for this monumental piece.

Another Chopard ring made it to Victoria’s collection, containing an oval-cut sapphire with a platinum pavé band. Then again with another ring in the same year, an oval-cut pink diamond set on a yellow gold pavé band. It is suggested that the pink engagement ring symbolises the arrival of their baby daughter.

After a five-year break between rings, Victoria was then gifted a round-cut diamond with a halo setting and round side stones, and then an additional moonstone ring set in a diamond-encrusted platinum band.  

Debuted at Cannes Film Festival, Victoria showed off her square-cut diamond on a platinum pavé band. 

To conclude her fabulous collection, David gifted Victoria with a square-cut yellow diamond on a platinum pavé band. As of today, Victoria has yet to reveal any new engagement rings, so 15 may be the magic number for this couple.
