Victoria Beckham has put her wedding tiara up for auction.

The 39-year-old fashion designer is selling her lavish £25,000 gold and black crown which she wore at her royal-themed wedding to former soccer star David Beckham.

Emily Barber, director of Bonhams Jewellery Department in London said: "Interest in the tiara is expected to be two-fold because it is designed by acclaimed jeweller, Slim Barrett, whose pieces rarely come up for sale at auction.

"The fact that it was worn by international style icon Victoria Beckham on her wedding day adds even further interest to the piece, bringing it to the attention of a wider audience."

The 18-carat crown-style latticed tiara with diamond drops will be auctioned off at Bonhams on December 5 with a price of between £18,000 and £25,000.

Victoria borrowed the crown from Slim and it has since been exhibited at the Victoria and Albert museum but could now go to a private owner.
