Victoria Beckham gave David a jeweled motorcycle helmet for his birthday

What does an ice queen get her king on his birthday? Well, if you are Victoria Beckham, you get him a proper jeweled crown. For his 41st birthday, which is today, Picky (Posh + Vicky) presented David with a motorcycle helmet bedazzled in real jewels. The helmet, a French Les Atelier Ruby, has 17 gems on it, one for each year of their wedded bliss. Apparently, Picky put a lot of thought into the helmet’s design and had a pair of gloves made to match.

VICTORIA Beckham has bought hubby David a gem-studded motorbike helmet for his 41st birthday.
Posh, 42, spent a five-figure sum on the lambskin-lined lid, which has 17 jewels – one for each year of their marriage.

It is a custom version of the popular French Les Atelier Ruby helmet, which Posh has airbrushed matt black.

A source said: “David loves bikes so she designed a special helmet as well as gloves, a bluetooth device and expensive camera lens. It certainly required a lot of effort and thought.”

Becks, 41 tomorrow, has a string of flash bikes including a Bonneville he rode in the Amazon rainforest for a BBC film. Last month he rode in the Californian desert.

The loved up couple are known for giving each other swanky presents have always given generous gifts to each other with David splashing £50,000 on a diamond bracelet for Posh’s 40th in 2014.

I know none of you hold my affection for Picky. But this is exactly why I love her; she is so far removed from reality that her idea of a gift is to put actual jewels on something that is designed to be scraped on the asphalt. She even remembered the matching gloves – and spent five figures to do so. Can you imagine what David is going to look like sailing down the road under the California sun with this disco ball on his head?

As the article suggests, the Beckhams are always generous in their gifts to each other. David’s last gift to Picky was 5.2 million pounds to bail out her flagging fashion line out. I wonder if David opened this helmet, saw what she had designed and finally realized why the fashion thing isn’t working out. I kid, I actually like Picky’s clothes but I can’t afford them. Ever the practical one, Picky’s glam helmet will prove versatile; not only will David be the most fabulous biker out there, but they can take turns wearing it as they ride shotgun while Brooklyn learns to drive.

    I can’t stop laughing, Picky has to be the best nickname ever! Hecate, you are a genius! 😀
    And of course she would bedazzle a motorcycle helmet…that’s got to be the most perfect example of having more money than you know what to do with. I can’t wait to see him wearing it, hahahaha.

      If people have more money than they know what to do with, they can do something useful for other people with it. Maybe the Beckams do that already: but I would be ashamed to spend my money on this expensive tat when I could, for example, donate it to a kids’ hospital. A ward named after hubby would be a nice gift for him but most of all for others. This is just crass. But they are in good (bad) company in this gross conspicuous consumption: cf Kimbot and co. By all means enjoy the money, have a great time, live the dream. But this is classless.

    Is a jewelled helmet the male equivalent of a vajazzle?

  5. SK says:

    Yeah… Nah. I actually love Posh; but this gift is stupid. Maybe I’m wrong; but I would think most dudes would be embarrassed having a bejewelled helmet! The one above look a bit battered and “cool”. That is the biker look. I totally get pimping out a helmet with the other stuff; but the jewels just ruin it. Also, you have to be careful what you attach to helmets because hard objects attached can punch through the helmet in the instance of trauma and actually cause brain damage.

    Meanwhile the Beckhams are the talk of West London as Harper’s school teacher has very mysteriously been moved on just weeks after Harper was pulled out of school and moved elsewhere. Wonder why that could be, Mr Beckham?!

      What’s your guess about what happened at pre-school?

      • antipodean says:

        Mmmmh, something here smells a little fishy, methinks. Retired from footy, check! Wife busy running fashion empire, check! Darling, would you please do the school run for our angel? Check. Isn’t that pre school teacher sweet, and hot? Check! What!!!!! Hastily moves angel to another school, and teach is moved on to parts unknown! Again, fishy. Something rotten in the West of London.

    Teaching a 16 year old to drive really isn’t that bad if you do it gradually. When I was 18, I taught my younger brother how to drive, taught all my daughters and just recently taught my grandson (even took him out on the snow). Start out small distances (I start in our neighborhood) and gradually increase the distance, speed and amount of traffic one could encounter (very little in the subdivision and low speed). Just need to give them lots of practice. Surprised they just don’t hire someone to teach him to drive. As far as the helmet, let’s hope those jewels are in there securely!
