Whether you believe in curses or not, there are a lot of objects in history that prove that curses are indeed real. From harmless beautiful diamonds to creepy looking dolls, the history of these cursed objects will leave you surprised.
Here are the most creepy cursed objects in the history of mankind:
The Hope Diamond
This beautiful diamond was donated to the Smithsonian Natural History Museum. But why would someone donate a diamond worth 250 million dollars? The answer is simple because it is believed that this diamond would bring great misfortune to the owner and to anyone who touches it. It is believed that the diamond was stolen from a statue of goddess Sita from India, the thief faced the curse and was torn apart by Wild Dogs in Russia. After that whoever owned this diamond faced terrible end which includes being beheaded, depression, bankruptcy and even the death of close family members. It is believed that the diamond was donated so that the owner could get rid of the curse.
Robert The Doll
Haunted dolls and curses go a long way! Robert the doll was a gift for a boy named Eugene from his grandfather. The boy soon developed a deep connection to the doll and still kept him around as an adult. He took the doll everywhere and was an eccentric artist. People claimed that the doll was haunted and the kids saw the doll disappear and later reappear from the house’s window. Even Eugene treated the doll as a human and talked to him sometimes his parents heard the doll talk back. Now, this doll resides in Fort East Martello Museum in Key West, Florida. The doll receives apology letters from the tourists who disrespect it and it is believed that the doll curses them with bad luck for the rest of their lives.
The Basano Vase
This beautiful vase was crafted in the 15th century as a wedding gift. Unfortunately, it never got to see a real wedding as the bride who received it was murdered before the wedding. The vase was gifted to another family member who died in mysterious circumstances. It was again regifted to another family member who met the same fate. They buried the vase with a warning “Beware this vase brings death” realizing it was cursed. The founder didn’t take the warning seriously and sold the vase to a pharmacist who died within a month of acquiring it. There are countless deaths linked to the vase and the location of this vase remains unknown. Some claim that the owner tried to donate the vase but no one accepted it so he buried it in an unknown location to prevent more deaths.
We all have seen the movie “Annabelle” which is very popular in the conjuring series. But, the real-life Annabelle is a Raggedy Ann doll that is kept inside a giant glass case inside The Warrens’ Occult Museum in Monroe, Connecticut. The doll is haunted and holds a “Positively do not open” sign. Whoever has overseen that warning has met a gruesome end. One visitor ignored the warning and tapped the case of the doll and ended up dead in a motorcycle accident. One priest threw the doll saying that god is powerful than the devil met with an accident and died shortly after. To this date, it is advised not to look into Annabelle’s eyes as it is looking for a body to possess.
Do you think all of these accidents are mere coincidences or does the curse actually exist?
