    Hope Diamond

    The Hope Diamond, named for its 19th century owners, is arguably the best-known diamond in the world.

    It's widely believed what became the Hope Diamond was cut from a 115-carat blue diamond sold to King Louis XIV from a mine in India.

    Legend has it that death and misfortune plague the diamond's owner, claiming notable figures such as Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette along with many jewelers and socialites.

    Most of the stories surrounding supposed owners of the diamond have been proven historically inaccurate.

    The 45.42-carat diamond currently resides in the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.Source: Reuters

    The Eye of Brahma
    The Black Orlov diamond, or “the Eye of Brahma,” was supposedly stolen from an Indian idol in its 195-carat form.

    The diamond is said to hold a deadly curse, causing three of its owners to jump to their death.

    The diamond has since been cut into three separate pieces in attempts to break the curse. No tragedies have befallen the owners of the cut 67.5-carat diamond. Source: Life

    Delhi Purple
    The cursed Delhi Purple Sapphire was brought to the UK from Kanpur by a soldier.

    Both the soldier and his son lost their wealth and health after owning the stone, and a family friend reportedly killed himself after possession of the stone for a short time.

    Edward Heron-Allen, a scientist and friend of Oscar Wilde, willed the stone to the Natural History Museum in London after steady bad luck, he believed, caused by the Delhi Purple Sapphire.
