On April 9, every eye on the internet was glued to Nicola Peltz as she said “I do” to new husband, Brooklyn Beckham. But before Peltz made her grand entrance, all those eyes were on her famously-stylish mother-in-law, Victoria Beckham — and she did not disappoint.
The former Spice Girl walked down the aisle on the arm of her husband David, draped in a silver-gray slip dress. Beckham’s trailing, satin gown was trimmed in metallic lace (her own design, of course), but her massive diamond necklace was where the real sparkle happened.
According to British Vogue, the giant, pear-shaped stone weighs a whopping 21.5 carats (perhaps the only thing that could dwarf her 17-carat engagement ring). The private meaning behind the necklace, however, is truly priceless. British Vogue revealed that David gave it to her 23 years ago, in celebration of Brooklyn’s christening — making it the perfect choice for the MOG.
