Victoria Beckham celebrated 22 years of marriage to her husband David at the weekend – and rumour has it she has some 15 engagement rings to show for it. When footballer David 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 jewellery lore, VB has been acquiring sparkly 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 whoppers in the years since.?
To mark the milestone on 4 July, David shared a carousel of the couple’s matching outfits alongside the caption: “22 years later, still matching outfits…” The first image showed the young pair dressed in purple at their ’90s wedding, the next their infamous matching leather biker outfits, and a third the couple’s more recent – but still complementary – #Cottagecore looks. VB, meanwhile, posted a sweet montage video made up of footage of the couple over the years.?
