David Beckham proposed to Victoria on January 24, 1998. He chose a simple and elegant diamond engagement ring… which has since turned into 15 engagement rings (backlink to next article). That’s correct, Beckham likes to gift VB a new engagement ring every couple of years… WE CAN DREAM!

They became known as “Posh and Becks” in the media, a nickname that’s still thrown around, and iconically known as ‘The Beckham’s’.
