I dont like diamonds. They dont have color.

Heaven didnt want me and Hell thinks I will take over.

  • Most people can hear; however, how many really listen?

I saw the misfortunes on a show that was telling about some of the museums displays. I remember another story about the Blue Diamond. The man who delivered it had some things happen to him. If I remember correctly, within a year he broke his leg, his dog died, his house caught fire and the one I am not sure about is that his wife left him. Even though I try to be logical, at the same time I don't believe in pushing luck.  blush.gif

First off, I don't believe that it's cursed. While I believe in curses, I don't think that this is what we're dealing with. The best selling proof on it not being cursed is this...

Is the other half of the stone cursed?

According to the story, there is well over half of this gem (in bits and pieces true) out there somewhere. If the curse was on the whole uncut gem, it should still be valid on the remainder of it. But is there any stories about any other cursed remainders? I haven't found anything...

Greed was probably the curse...
or coincidence made it seem to be.

Um, yeah, curses.

Once again, no one can show any evidence that these incidents happened at any higher rate than they do in the general non-big hunkin' diamond owning population.

Apparently nothing happened to Harry Winston and he owned it for 11 years and certainly the Smithsonian has done pretty well in the past 60 years.
