bid diamond

Rose quartz lied about killing pink diamond to serve her rebellion

The new episode has me convinced.

As zircon said only someone who was close to pink diamond and had enough strength could have destroyed her.

Rose probably was there when it happened, but she must have only played witness to it.

If we go by what Zicron said and yellow diamonds reaction (and assume YD did it)

Pink diamond must have left her palanquin to greet yellow, who wasn’t scheduled to be on earth

Yellows guards must have taken out her enterauge and assassinated pink diamond, rose and pearl might have only lived because they weren’t supposed to be there and weren’t planned for therefore whernt part of the initial skirmish, but were spotted and unable to get away.

Then yellow must have let Rose and pearl live, rose so she could serve as someone to blame (as pearls would be an unbelievable story). And pearl so that she could act as a ‘spokesperson’ from what was left of the enterauge and tell the home world gems who came knocking that Rose killed pink diamond. (Who would question an obedient distraught pearl?)

Then finally yellow diamond must have had her own attendants assassinated to cover up the crime.

That’s why our pearl doesn’t know yellow pearl. Because she relatively new to the position and might not have even been made while pearl still served as an actual pearl.

It may also explain why the weapon of choice in the cover-up story was a sword.

Yellow diamonds troops have, time and time again proved to like the pointy stuff with no accounting for finesse. Yellow must have seen it as a reasonable enough weapon to have killed pink, but it doesn’t take into account that rose quartz didn’t have the capacity to forge a diamond killing sword at that time. (As far as we know)

But home world didn’t know that because they don’t know what her rebellion’s resources were on earth, and by extension BD didn’t. Therefore although to us it seems impossible that Rose shattered the diamond with the sword, to blue diamond and yellow diamond who don’t know the full story it looks plausable.

And that’s all yellow diamond needed.

-so rose was actually guilt ridden for helping to cover up a murder.
-and yellow diamonds bid for power spun out of control.

To avoid the gazes of other men, Isla held Grayson’s arm tightly, already feeling out of place. Unlike the other guests who were stopped by bouncers with clipboards, upon seeing his face, the velvet red rope was opened for the both of them as they made their way inside. All of Grayson’s men except one, stayed and that man had been the one to sit beside Grayson in the car. 

Subtly, Grayson shifted his arm from hers, and wrapped it securely around her waist. They entered yet another grand hallway, the sky-high walls seemed never ending and an orchestral melody greeted them at the door. Women laughed with poise but the looks in their eyes showed malice and materialism. They entered one floor, separated by a large long curtain and just on the side Isla could not see, boisterous laughter sounded. The side they remained on, donned rows of expensive jewelry, artifacts, and items all with a lit board at its front where women wandered, bidding away their partner’s money. Confused, Isla wondered where their other halves were.

As if to answer her question for her, she and Grayson approached another guard protecting an entrance to the wonders of the hidden side of the curtain. Grayson reached into his pocket, and pulled out a black velvet box. He opened it, showcasing a gold pin intricately shaped into a lion. He held out the box which Isla held with a delicate touch, pinning the lion to his silk lapel. The man immediately unveiled the rope but stopped as Grayson wrapped his arm around Isla’s waist again. 

“No women allowed.”

Specifications of Spoonmaker Diamond

Weight: 86 carats Dimensions: 42 x 35 x 16 mm Color: Colorless Weight of Rough: Unknown Origin: Unknown; probably India Date Found: Unknown Current Location: Topkapi Palace and Museum, Istanbul, Turkey; Turkish Crown Jewels

Details

This stone has an uncertain history, but since the early 1800’s has been in possession of the Turkish government. It is currently on display at the Topkapi Palace and Museum in Istanbul.

There is a discrepancy in the historical record concerning the weight of this diamond. It is reported as 86 carats, yet documentation from the early 1800’s state that it is the third largest diamond in the world. This would not be accurate, as the Orlov (189.6 carats), Darya-I-Nur/Great Table (a minimum of 175 carats), Koh-I-Noor (estimated at 186 carats), Florentine (137.27 carats), Nassak (90 carats), and Shah (88.6 carats) would be bigger, making it at least seventh. (All carats used in this paragraph are old carats to avoid confusion with the historical record.)
