People will do just about anything to get their hands on something shiny, even if they’re rumored to be cursed. Diamonds, rubies, gold, and silver — if it glitters it’s worth the plundering. However, many gems come with more than just a price tag. They come with a curse. Bathed in blood, you would be surprised by just how many people, curse or no curse, would love to get a hold on baubles once worn in the crowns of kings and queens. From hiding diamonds in open wounds, to robbing the American Museum of Natural History, these treasures definitely have a story to tell.
