LIFESTYLE History

Curses do not just exist in fairy tales. Case in point: the Hope Diamond caught everyone's eyes. It's so famous that it even inspired the Heart of the Ocean necklace in 'Titanic' (1997).

Those who could afford it wanted it with the hunger of an animal. The hypnotic blue stone has seduced kings, sultans, and heiresses to take the risk that the curse may fall upon them. It has passed through many hands and seen quite a few deaths. No one truly knows how the magic of the Hope Diamond works, but its story eerily suggests a dark power.

From the last Turkish sultan to American socialites, click through this gallery to find out how this diamond has brought misfortune to so many.
