quick little personal headcanons about homeworld balls being a thing:
- balls were intended for the diamonds and the members of their courts, though on the occasion lower-class gems were allowed to attend if an invitation was received or someone from the court brought them along.
- balls were typically hosted by blue diamond or pink diamond, with yellow diamond and white diamond choosing to host them less frequently.
- if more than one diamond attended, this was the best opportunity for gems of different colonies to converse and get a chance to spend time with one another.
- the authority chose to stop hosting balls after pink’s shattering.
