To say Victoria Beckham lives a blessed life would be somewhat of an understatement. She was one-fifth of the Spice Girls, the best selling girl group of all time, has been married to soccer superstar and sometime underwear model David Beckham for 15 years, and her recent venture, an eponymous clothing line, has won her raves and accolades from the very critical and cliquey folks in the fashion industry.
It would seem some girls really do have all the luck, all of the time.
It gets better though, for Victoria at least, as a new story reveals something that is almost too shocking to believe — Victoria has owned 13 engagement rings since she married David in 1999, valued at about $6.5 million.
He most certainly did not got to Jarrod.
This is not a report or a rumor either, but information that was gathered when her entire jewelry collection was valued for the Daily Mail by jewelry maker Steve Bennett.
The stones, size and setting of each ring in Victoria's collection is unique, and include; her first ring, a "diamond cut into an elongated ‘marquise’ shape, set on a yellow gold band" that David picked up for the bargain basement price of about $110,000, the yellow diamond in yellow gold bling which set David back $170,000 and she showed off at Wimbledon this year, and her personal favorite, a square cut emerald surrounded by diamonds that could find its way in to your jewelry box as well, assuming you have $850,000 just laying around.
And before any of you ladies get all angry or jealous, you should know that Victoria really does need all these rings so she can switch them out to match her outfit or mood or just put them all on at once and run around her house pretending to be Elizabeth Taylor.
Also, as the above photos show, Victoria knows how to show off those rings for the cameras.
So to recap, the pop star who married the athletic heartthrob and conquered the world of fashion after giving birth to four perfect children also has a collection of engagement rings that, and we just have to say this again, have been valued at a price of around $6.5 million. Which means, at this rate, Victoria's collection will be worth a cool $20 million by the time she reaches 80-years-old.
