Victoria Beckham Is a Firm Believer in the Energy of Crystals
Victoria Beckham, better known to her legions of fans around the world as “Posh Spice,” is a very busy woman. She is a mother to four children, a wife to sports star David Beckham, and she manages a roster of businesses that she founded.
It’s no stretch of the imagination to assume that Beckham is efficient, productive, and never less than businesslike in anything that she does. Still, when it comes to her day-to-day life, the former pop star holds on to several superstitions — including a deep love for crystals, and the positive energy that she believes they bring.
In fact, Beckham loves the gems so much that she designed some pieces in her popular clothing line around them.
What is Victoria Beckham best known for?
Victoria Beckham was born in Essex, England, in 1974. She first entered the world of entertainment in the ’80s, working as a model for a few years before eventually answering an ad that called for girls who were able to dance and sing.
This ad led to Victoria Beckham joining an up and coming girl group known as the Spice Girls. The group released their first single in 1996, and the song, “Wannabe,” went on to become a worldwide smash, catapulting her and her bandmates to fame.
For the next four years, the Spice Girls toured the world and recorded music, earning millions of fans. In 2000, at the height of their fame, the group stopped recording in order to focus on the members’ individual solo efforts.
Victoria Beckham, who was known as Posh Spice, remained in the headlines — and her marriage to soccer star David Beckham in 1999 only served to cement her fame. Over the years that followed, she curated several fashion lines, worked as a model, and even released specialty skincare and makeup line.
Victoria Beckham believes in the energy of crystals
Victoria Beckham remains a force to be reckoned with in the business world to this day. A busy mom of four children, she is comfortable with her life as a high-profile star, although she revealed in a 2011 interview that she still deals with the perception that she’s not a happy person. “There are kids running around and laughing and joking. I smile so much more than people think,” the star revealed.
In that same interview, Victoria Beckham also admitted that it might surprise people to know just how spiritual she is: “I’m a very spiritual person. I travel with my crystals. I’ve got all different colors. It’s just something that I’m into. I am quite a superstitious person. I don’t walk under a ladder. If I see a magpie, I salute.”
Victoria Beckham designed some pieces in her clothing line to be crystal-friendly
Over the years, Victoria Beckham has maintained her love of crystals. As recently as 2018, the designer and entrepreneur decided to make her latest fashion line crystal-friendly by incorporating hidden pockets into some of the pieces of clothing.
“My first crystal was a black obsidian and I still carry it everywhere with me! I like to surround myself with positive energy, and so often have a little collection of crystals in my handbag,” she told Elle. “We clipped crystals onto belt loops, and included secret pockets for them on wide leg trousers—so you can carry charms wherever you go.”
Beckham admitted that she has an extensive crystal collection, and that for her, designing the collection to be crystal-friendly is her way of sharing her knowledge and love of the gems with her customers: “I wanted to offer something that could provide support navigating her career and her personal life… As with all my collections, I want to make my customer feel confident and secure, and for me adding crystals felt like a nice way to help do that.”
