What A Choker!

‘IF you spend £10m on a choker, you would definitely expect it to do what it says it does on the tin – or, in this case, the 18 carat white gold.

A rare gem – and the necklace is okay

And so we note with interest that David Beckham is said to be head of the list of celebs ready to splash out that much on just such a piece of jewellery…for his wife.

The choker, which is built around a rare blue diamond called the Blue Empress, was modelled yesterday by Yasmin Le Bon before going on display in Harrod’s.

It is already the most expensive necklace ever offered by the Knightsbridge department store, having attracted a bid of £10m.

But the Star thinks that Becks may be the man who walks away with it to match the £2m diamond ring he bought his wife earlier this month.

‘David and Victoria are sure to have a good look at it before deciding if it’s one to add to their collection of jewels,’ a source close to the couple said.

No doubt Victoria will be chipping in her share of the eight-figure price, no doubt from her Spice Girls earnings, which last year amounted to, er, £4,863.’
