Nothing is known about Violet Diamond's personality yet.


Ancient History

Before the creation of Red Diamond,[3] Violet Diamond emerged a defective Gem: she lacked the powers a Diamond needed to have. For this reason, the moment she formed she was subdued, poofed and bubbled[4] by Yellow Diamond.[5] While this situation was witnessed by a few high-class Gems around,[6] Violet's name was buried away so that only Yellow herself and White Diamond knew she had ever existed.[7]

Violet Diamond Bubbled

Violet Diamond in a bubble.

Upon being bubbled away, Violet Diamond was converted into a Gem Key to power various Gem-tech and items, allowing for her to be used in a multitude of ways.[4][8] Her gemstone was then locked away in one of Yellow's chambers.

She never had a Pearl[9] or a court.[4]

"The Trial" – "Lars' Head"

Violet Diamond came close to being rescued by Ice and the Off Colors,[6] but they ultimately failed for only a Diamond could enter the chamber where her gem was imprisoned.[10]

"Legs From Here to Homeworld" – "Change Your Mind"

During her shenanigans on Homeworld, Violet Diamond's gem was managed to be taken hold by Ice. She fused with it, as Violet wouldn't reform, and together they formed a new being. Although the fusion didn't last long, Violet Diamond came out of her gem safe and sound.[11]


It is unknown whether Violet Diamond possesses standard Gem abilities, aside from fusing.[11] She's said not to have any abilities, and thus be weaker than other Diamonds,[12] the reason why she's considered defective.[13]

She's more or less powerful when compared to other Gems, but not as powerful as a real Diamond.[14]



  • Shield Proficiency: GemCrust has stated that Violet Diamond's weapon would be a shield. It is assumed that she would be skilled while wielding it.[1]


Crystal Gems

If they were to meet, the Crystal Gems would likely welcome Violet as an honorary member as long as she behaved herself.[15]


Ice first came to know of Violet Diamond's existence when she overheard a few Gems discussing her position, during her adventures with the Off Colors in the abandoned Kindergarten. According to them, an off-color Diamond was being held in one of Yellow Diamond's chambers, thus, after taking it to the Rutile Twins, they decided to try and rescue her.[6] They were unsuccessful, though, because only a Diamond could enter the chamber where Violet Diamond was being held.[10]

Somehow, Ice got hold of her gemstone. Since she wouldn't reform, similar to what Steven Universe did during the events of "Change Your Mind, Ice fused with her gem, forcefully pulling her out. Naturally, they fused, but their fusion didn't last long.[11]


  • She was a "prototype" of Red Diamond.[16]
  • She doesn't have a court.[17]
  • It was announced that she was never intended to be a part of GemCrust's canon until fans demanded GemCrust to bring her back.
    • She was then introduced back into the canon as a defective Diamond that was bubbled the very moment she was formed, by Yellow Diamond.
  • She's an off-color Gem.[18]
  • It has been stated that Violet Diamond will become a Crystal Gem once Ice sends her back to Earth.[19]
  • GemCrust says he has plans to rework "Violet Diamond's entire being", due to her being made before Pink Diamond's reveal, and thus not fitting into his canon, seeing as Pink looked different from the others and was nonetheless loved and accepted.[20]
    • As of February 6th, GemCrust has revamped her.[21]
  • GemCrust has thought of making her mute.[22]

Gemstone Information

  • The fuss over violet and purple diamonds is recent as far as controversies go. Collectors of fancy color diamonds could only dream of owning these colors until the discovery of violet diamonds in Australia in the 1980s and a fluke find of purples in Russia a decade later. Yet even then, scientists doubted their eyes.
  • Collecting and Classifying Fancy Coloured Diamonds refuses to recognize the violet diamond as a separate and distinct category. But it’s not because such stones are too purple. It’s because they’re too blue.
    • Author Stephen Hofer says that at the time of the book’s publication in 1998 he had not yet found any diamonds that measured in the violet region of the spectrum using an electronic colorimeter. To him, most violet stones measured in the blue and were best classified as such.
