Posh's Crown donated to Charity auction...

The world wedding of 1999 which was held in Ireland between David Beckham and Posh Spice Victoria Adams is set to be relived as the glitzy diamond wedding crown, created by one of the world's top jewelry designers, is to be auctioned for charity. The headpiece, valued at 120,000, is encrusted with 231 diamonds and has been donated by its creator Slim Barrett for the online sale to raise cash for the British Red Cross.

Also in the auction of luxury items being launched by The Sunday Times and web site, is a 1.2 million reproduction of the "coeur de mer" necklace worn by Kate Winslet in Titanic. Irish-born Barrett ... whose clients have included Madonna and Diana, Princess of Wales ... was commissioned by Victoria to create the lavish crown for her over-the-top wedding last year to Manchester United star David Beckham.

The singer did not actually buy the accessory and after being displayed at London's Victoria & Albert Museum, it has lain in a vault for security. But now Barrett, who this year won the De Beers international diamond award for a 500,000 necklace, has decided to hand it over to the sale. Other items in The Sunday Times Style Auction include 60,000 worth of jewelry worn by Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt to this year's Oscars ceremony. They including her Fiorellino necklace and bracelet and his platinum cufflinks.

The world's most expensive pair of shoes, designed by Gina, with 18-carat gold buckles and 36 diamonds on each one, are also being sold. Speed fans can also bid for a 160,000 Sunseeker power boat, like the model featured in the opening scenes of James Bond movie The World Is Not Enough, and a Jasper Conran-designed Mazda MX5 car ... one of only 20 in the world and valued at 35,000.

Jeremy Hughes, director of marketing & income generation at the British Red Cross said: "Over the years, readers of The Sunday Times have shown tremendous support to the British Red Cross by responding to its emergency appeals raising money for humanitarian crises both in the UK and overseas. ``This exciting initiative with The Sunday Times is another excellent way to raise vital funds for British Red Cross services, which meet the continual needs of people affected by national disasters, major incidents or personal crises at home or abroad."

The sale is to be launched by the newspaper this Sunday and on the web site.

Public bids can be lodged until May 30.
