Hello, Starlight. You certainly gave everyone a scare.

—"Legs From Here to Homeworld"

White Diamond is a Homeworld Gem and a member of the Great Diamond Authority that rules over the Gem race. She is the superior of all Gems, including her fellow Diamonds, and has not left the Gem Homeworld in eons. She made her debut in "Legs From Here to Homeworld".

Appearance

White Diamond has white spiky hair in a shape similar to a star pentagon and white skin. She is shown to be larger than her fellow Diamonds. Like the other Diamonds, she has diamond-shaped pupils, but hers are white instead of black, and she has large, full, black eyelashes. Her gemstone is embedded in her forehead.

She wears a long white dress that reaches the floor and splits on the sides to expose her legs, shoulder pads, and a pair of intricately detailed dress sandals with high heels. She also wears a cape with black and gray stripes that is lined with diamond and star designs.

White Diamond is unique in that her body constantly radiates a bright light. Due to this, her facial features (aside from her eyes, nostrils, and mouth) and gemstone are not visible. A drawing by Rebecca Sugar, however, does show these missing details.[1]

Abilities

White Diamond possesses standard Gem abilities, but since she is a Diamond, her abilities are expected to be much greater than that of other Gems.

Unique Abilities

  • Aura Projection: The Diamonds can project an aura around them that they can control, they can either radiate it from their entire bodies or emit it from specific parts of their bodies, usually their hands. Not much has been shown of White nor her aura, but during the Diamonds' final attack against the Crystal Gems, White's aura was shown around her hand as a solid white corona-like flare around it.


Episode Appearances

Trivia

  • The shape of White Diamond's hair-style gives the impression of a life-giving sun, symbolizing glory.
  • Though not properly named within the show, White Diamond's name is seen alongside the names of the other three Diamonds along with their specific themes.[2] She has not been mentioned in the show by any character thus far.

The teaser released by the Steven Universe Booth

  • White Diamond's mural suggests that she is the oldest of the Diamonds.
    • She owned the most colonies at the time of Earth's colonization.
    • The circular disk behind White Diamond's head appears to show her descending from the sky.
    • She is the only Diamond to be portrayed as being completely symmetrical, which alludes to perfection and balance.
  • During San Diego Comic-Con 2018, Cartoon Network held a "3-D photobooth" for Steven Universe. When fans received their "3-D" image, a clip was attached at the end teasing White Diamond with a brief animation of her eyes blinking.[3]
  • White Diamond is drawn in the style of the show's background art.
  • Rebecca Sugar took inspiration from the illustrations of Nell Brinkley when designing White Diamond.[citation needed]

  • Diamonds have practical uses.
    • Until a few years into the 21st century, Diamonds were thought to the the sharpest material on earth. A specific type of snail teeth has claimed this title. For this reason, high quality drills can sometimes be diamond tipped.
