Kate Middleton‘s engagement ring just so happens to be a hand-me-down from the late Princess Diana. Although this family treasure is very dear to Prince William’s heart, the superstitious among us would agree that Kate should never have accepted it. Why? Well, because it’s widely believed that jewelry can be cursed. Take the Hope Diamond, for example, which many believe has been cursed since it was stolen in 1642. Since then, tragedy, injury, or even death has befallen all those who have come in contact with it, including Marie Antoinette. Even if you don’t believe that jewelry can be cursed, I always heard the old wives’ tale that engagement rings are supposed to carry the energy of the marriage from whence it came. Meaning it’s bad luck to inherit a ring from an unhappy marriage. So essentially Kate is wearing the ring of a troubled princess who had a very bad marriage, not to mention a tragic end. If I were Kate, I might have hoped for something with a little bit less bad ju-ju. [Hottnez]

Also, apparently she kinda cursed the guy — according to my beef (who lost $100 on the game), Romo had one of the worst games of his career. Eh, like Jessica noticed. I’m sure she gave him a victory lay anyway after the game. Keep reading »
