PostSubject: [Theory] Gem Placement on Diamonds    Sat Jul 02, 2016 9:22 am

Found another good on on tumblr that I am going to share here. Credits goto OP link of the theory I found is here



We all know the internet is flooded by a million gem placement theories, but there’s something I haven’t seen pointed out yet: the diamonds’ gem placements.
First thought: we could have guessed them well before seeing the diamonds.
Just look at this
and then look at the diamonds
Notice anything?
Yep, their gem placements match their position in the symbol of the diamond authority.
White diamond, who’s on top, has her gem on the forehead.
Blue and Yellow diamond, side by side under White diamond, both have their gems on the chest.


Second thought: we can guess what Pink diamond’s gem placement is.

Blue and Yellow’s diamonds are positioned on the center, like White’s. We can assume Pink’s will be positioned on the lower part of her torso. Probably on her belly. 

Third thought: does that position ring any bell?
A little hint
Now, I’m not saying Rose is Pink diamond (we have quite a lot of evidence she isn’t), but if they have the same gem placement that could mean something.
Fourth thought: Rose was Pink diamond’s quartz.
We know every gem belongs in a diamond’s court, of course, but Rose could be Pink diamond’s personal quartz. 
Much like for the diamonds’ personal pearls, quartzes could have the same gem placement as their owners.

It would even work with our Pearl, if she was really White diamod’s!


So maybe Rose was Pink diamond’s personal quartz, like a bodyguard or even an advisor?

Fifth thought: what do those placements say about the diamonds’ personalities?

Pink diamond: people already speculated that gems with their gem on the belly are natural sweethearts, which we have no canonical evidence against, so we can postulate that this is true.

White diamond: the gem on the head symbolizes great intellect and logical skills, as demonstrated by Pearl and Peridot. Again, no canonical evidence.

Blue diamond: the gem on the chest could symbolize the heart, as in a loving nature and compassion, which would contrast with the same characteristics being attributed to belly gems, her canon interactions with Ruby and Sapphire and Amethyst’s personality, but would work very well with the religious undertones of her appearance.

Yellow diamond: everything about her gem placement seems rather… odd. She is described as intelligent and logical, even though she puts her resentment over logic while talking about Earth, but she isn’t caring like Blue should nor reckless like Amethyst. Maybe it could symbolize pride? I’m open to suggestions.

Anyway, here’s my thoughts. I’d like to know what you people think about this.





Here are my personal thoughts on this theory. 


We know that Sapphire and Ruby were both a part of Blue Diamond's court, but their gem placements are on their hands. One could argue that this is part of the middle of the body, akin to where chest gems are more than where Naval or lower gems are. 


However, I am thinking that Gem placement may have more of an effect on their personalities rather than what court they are from. 


Maybe the placement of the gem only has significance with Diamonds and not other gems.

Well, I'm gonna have to say...this theory is all over the place XD because on the one hand, I get it. But on the other, we also have the theory floating around about the placement of the gem is associated with the strongest trait of said gem, i.e.

Pearl - forehead - scholarly/thinker/planner
Amethyst - heart - passion
Steven - tum - gut/intuition
Garnet - hands - sensory/feeling

These by themselves are good and alright and what I get behind the most. With that being said, thinking of this from a diamond perspective, placement of said gem and which diamond alignment only appears to apply to pearls atm. Because keep in mind, now that we saw Hit the Diamond, all the Rubies had their gems in various locations and all work for Yellow Diamond. Those were all her personal Rubies. The same can also be said of the Rubies seen in The Answer - all had gems in various location. Jasper's gem was also her nose and she works for Yellow Diamond, who's gem appears on her chest. So thinking that gem placement = diamond affiliation isn't working as of right now.

So yes, I'm in agreement with you - the gems represent more personalities than diamond affiliation.

There's definitely no way to tell how a gem is affiliated based on the location of their gem, which is why they were coloured triangles. It most likely has more to do with their personality.

I'm wondering if the Gem placement theory would fit better for the personal courts of the Diamonds? This would include the Pearls and, in the theory above, Rose Quartz and such. Maybe warrior/military gems don't follow with the gem placement according to Diamond thing. They might work under the Diamond but because they aren't in their personal court they don't emulate the Diamond like those within the court do.

Yah, I think it may only apply to Pearls of direct servants of Diamonds, maybe like lead Military commanders/bodyguards f their court?
