The crown Victoria Beckham wore on her wedding day is to go up for auction next month (Dec13).

The former Spice Girls singer wore the gold headpiece set with large diamonds during her fairytale nuptials in 1999, when she married soccer star David Beckham, and it has been showcased in museums in London and Belgium ever since.

Now the crown's designer Slim Barrett has decided to sell the piece, called East of Paris, through London auction house Bonhams.

He says, "Inspiration for East of Paris came from my love of Eastern design and Parisian haute couture. I set out to fuse the two styles."

It is expected to fetch between $27,000 (£18,000) and $37,500 (£25,000).
