When Victoria Beckham wore this ring on the red carpet at the Met Ball 2014, we got curious. Was this the fabled 40th birthday gift from David, perhaps? And, just how many massive rocks does she own?

...Let's rewind a couple of weeks prior to the 2014 Met. While the www was working itself into a frenzy about the Spice Girls' 'drunken' antics at Victoria Beckham's belated 40th drinks the morning after, ELLE was hypnotised by the enormous emerald ring the birthday girl flashed at photographers as she made her way to her car.

Of course, it wasn't the first time we've seen it.

Contrary to reports, the gargantuan, square-cut emerald, which is surrounded by diamonds, was not a 40th birthday gift from David. VB's been flashing that bad boy around for years.

Rewind back another five years to 2007, and here she is at the same party. Different hair; same ring.

In fact, this bauble is one of a number that Victoria has on rotation...

Who could forget the relatively modest gold and marquise diamond ring that the newly-engaged Posh Spice proudly flashed to photographers after her engagement in January 1998?

This was 'upgraded' somewhere along the line to a huge pear-shaped diamond with a diamond band, seen above at David's signing at LA Galaxy in 2007.

Also circa 2007, this yellow-hued baguette made the first of many appearances.

...And who could forget the brilliant round sapphire, seen here in 2009?

Of course, we wouldn't be surprised if David had plumped for another ring to mark his wife's milestone birthday. He's got form.

Our eyes are officially peeled.
