A diamond tiara worn by former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham on her wedding day is being auctioned on the internet. The tiara was designed by Irish jeweler Slim Barrett and dubbed the “Beckham Diamond Wedding Crown”, made in 18 carat yellow gold and set with 240 cut diamonds.
“I felt when I made it for her that I could have broken it up, but she has such icon status I decided to keep it together,” Barrett told the Manchester Evening News. “When she came to me I felt that she had such an association with diamonds that I had to make them the main feature.” Slim said that, aside from promoting his imminent launch in America, he is auctioning off the piece because he wanted to “de-clutter the studio.”
Barrett plans to donate a portion of the proceeds to Irish-based charity Corporation Ireland, which helps under-privileged children in inner city areas. The tiara is currently bid at £100,300.50 in an auction ending October 13th.
Posh Snubs Royal Charity As Damon Delays Her Album
The Mirror reports even though Damon Dash and former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham recorded 12 “hip-pop” tracks in New York, her record company Telstar has rejected the songs and now her first single has been pushed back to January. The delay has forced Posh to pull out of Prince’s Trust Fashion Rocks event at the Royal Albert Hall on October 15th. “We prefer the stuff she had already recorded. It was very Kylie-style pop,” an insider at Telstar said. A source added, “She is meant to be releasing the first single next year now. If everything had been on schedule she would have had a new song to perform at the show but because of the delay due to her involvement with Damon Dash, she has no song to promote. It must be a huge disappointment for the Prince’s Trust as she does attract a lot of publicity.”
