Victoria Beckham’s mother-of-the-groom look at Brooklyn Beckham’s wedding to Nicola Peltz was an absolute knockout that flexed her status as a designer, who knows what works for her and what women actually want to wear. As well as fashioning her own liquid metallic slip that sang of Studio 54 glamour, she outfitted a handful of guests, including Mia Regan, in similarly slinky spaghetti-strap numbers. But while VB knows that the classic elegance of the slip means less is more when it comes to accessorising, the occasion also called for a mega piece of jewelry. The Beckhams more than delivered on this front.
The couple, who have been married over two decades, decided to repurpose a diamond which David gave to Victoria on the day of Brooklyn’s christening. That 21.5 carat pear-shaped diamond, mounted in platinum with a full diamond-set collet, is now suspended from a French 18 carat yellow gold handmade filigree link guard chain. The pendant it sits in? It’s crafted from an English chain, originally made circa 1870, featuring an intricate wild bee motif leading to a fist symbol, which is also known as a figa: a talisman symbol worn to protect against the evil eye, and to bring good luck when given as a gift.
