The Cook inspecting one of the diamonds to be sold, during the opening cinematic of Grand Theft Auto IV. The diamonds are mixed into a cake batter, presumably to be smuggled into the country after being stolen from Rodislav Bulgarin.

The Diamonds are featured in Grand Theft Auto IV, The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony wherein they are involved in many scenarios also involving the protagonists, Niko Bellic, Johnny Klebitz and Luis Fernando Lopez as well as many others. Detailed below are the many different scenarios which take place involving the diamonds and the different people that gain possession of them each time. The diamonds are the main purpose which led to the Impossible Trinity in GTA IV and Diamonds Forever in TBOGT achievements.

Description

The diamonds originally belonged to Rodislav Bulgarin and are first seen in the beginning cutscene of GTA IV where they are brought to Liberty City on the Platypus, smuggled by the unnamed cook.

Later, Gay Tony and Luis Lopez attend a meeting with the ship's cook in order to obtain the diamonds. This deal however, was interrupted by Johnny Klebitz and several members of The Lost, on the orders of Ray Boccino.

Following the ambush, Johnny followed and killed Tony's boyfriend, Evan Moss, obtained the diamonds, and then hid them within some garbage in Algonquin, in which the diamonds will be collected by Niko Bellic, Luca Silvestri, Joseph "Tuna" DiLeo and Johnny Spaz.

After the diamonds were collected, Luca and his crew attempt to steal the diamonds for themselves and plan to move to Las Venturas, but are stopped and are killed by Niko, who turn them over to Ray Boccino.

Later on, again on the orders of Ray Boccino, Niko teams up with Johnny, though not for the first time, and attempts to sell the diamonds to Isaac Roth and Mori Green, members of the Jewish Mob. The deal is interrupted by Luis Lopez, who achieves his goal of stealing the diamonds from Mori and delivers them to Tony, who puts them in his safe. This deal is seen played out from three different perspectives; in Niko's point of view, Johnny's point of view and Luis' point of view.

Later on, Niko and Packie kidnap Gracie Ancelotti on the orders of Gerald McReary in an attempt to trade her for the diamonds at a later stage. Gay Tony and Luis Lopez agree to strike a deal to trade the diamonds for the safe return of Gracie at an Oil Refinery on Charge Island after being threatened with death by Gracie's father should Gracie die or not be returned. Soon thereafter, the deal gets underway and seems to be going smoothly until Bulgarin appears, claiming that the diamonds were his before Gay Tony and Luis stole them. Following a shoot-out, one of Bulgarin's men grabs the diamonds and escapes up onto one of the metal walkways surrounding the refinery and holds them over the railings when he is cornered by Niko and Packie. Fearful for his life, no matter his decision, he decides to drop them over the railing into a passing dump truck before he is promptly killed.

The last appearance the diamonds have are at the end of The Ballad of Gay Tony's final mission, Departure Time. Luis meets Tony at the Monoglobe Monument after killing Rodislav Bulgarin on his plane. As he moves towards Tony, he "makes a scene" by bumping into a homeless man, knocking him over. He picks the old man up and walks away, not noticing the old man finding a pouch on the ground. The old man reaches into the pouch and pulls out a diamond, inspects it, puts it back in the bag and runs away laughing.

The last mention of the diamonds happens when listening to Weazel News. It is said that a homeless man found them in the trash, and were valued to be worth $2 million. 100 people attempt to obtain the diamonds before the mayor makes the decision to give them to the homeless man. The homeless man then speaks of his plan to sell the diamonds and use his money to open up a gun shop and a liquor store in Vice City, but not before buying a large mansion in Alderney.

Fate/Consequences

Apparently, all of the protagonists in GTA IV and both episodes never accomplished in getting the diamonds in their storylines, excluded in stealing them. Some of the people working with the protagonists ended up killed or disappeared for many reasons. Also, the original owner of the diamonds was Bulgarin, though he was the owner, he was killed by Luis for getting revenge on him. The diamonds caused the people who possessed or stole them and the protagonists many problems. Below are the consequences of the people that stole and owned them. The consequences are based on the storyline.

Protagonists

Niko Bellic

Niko only held the diamonds before and during the trade with Isaac Roth, when he picked them for the trash and let them see to Mori Green, though after the latter was killed, dropped them.

Johnny Klebitz

After Johnny stole the two million dollars that were meant for Ray Boccino, Ray ordered Niko to kill Johnny's bestfriend Jim, Ray also trashes the Lost MC clubhouse and conspired with Billy against Johnny. After this, Tom Stubbs III advises to leave Ray alone and take out Billy, around this time Ray is killed by Niko after being ordered to do so by Jimmy Pegorino. After the theft of the diamond money, The Lost MC nearly got wiped out by the Pegorinos.

As seen in Collector's Item and Was It Worth It?, Ray Boccino sent numerous hitmen squads against Johnny and The Lost.

Luis Lopez

After Ray Bulgarin finds out the Gay Tony and Luis have his diamonds, he promises them that they will die and sends numerous hit squads against them. Luis then kills Ray and his private army to "end this bullshit". After the diamonds were taken back by Gay Tony, both him and Luis Lopez and his friends and family could have been killed by Ray Bulgarin.

As seen in In the Crosshairs, Ladies Half Price and Party's Over.

Others

Ray Bulgarin

Typically, Bulgarin is the real owner of the diamonds and was stolen (in which the person that stole the diamond is unknown). It appears in the opening cutscene, in the ownership of The Cook. He arrives in Liberty City and doesn't know who stole his diamonds until he was told that the diamonds is in the hands of The Cook with Luis and Gay Tony as his dealers. He then plans to kill them. He later appears in the hostage deal where he orders his men to kill them but his men managed to retrieve the diamonds but it was short, however. One of Bulgarin's men throws the diamonds and lands in a dump truck and he was killed, resulting Niko and Packie in getting nothing. He later appears in the last mission in TBoGT and plans to flee Liberty City. Luis managed to get inside his plane and was killed.

Ray Boccino

He was first to introduce the diamonds to both Niko and Johnny. Ray hired them involving in stealing and/or dealing the diamonds to himself and possibly, to them too. Several of his tasks to Niko and Johnny was successful but it was stolen by Luis during the deal between the Jewish Mob and Niko and Johnny. To both protagonists, he was angry. Ray ordered some of his men to kill Johnny but it was unsuccessful and he was also angry to Niko. He was eventually killed by Niko for an unrelated reason.

Luca Silvestri, Joseph DiLeo and John Barbosa

They, with the help of Niko Bellic find the stashed diamonds that Johnny Klebitz stole during Gay Tony and Luis' diamond deal with The Cook, they do this subtly disguised as trash collectors. After the trio keep the diamonds for themselves, Niko kills them and another fat guy, then takes the diamonds back to Ray Boccino.

The Cook

The result in stealing Ray's diamonds and attempting to deal with them ended with the Cook being beheaded by Bulgarin.

Evan Moss

During the missions Diamonds in the Rough/Frosting on the Cake, Evan attempts to flee with the diamonds after The Lost members ambush the deal. Evan was chased down by Johnny Klebitz and affiliates, and murdered.

Isaac Roth

After attempting to buy the diamonds off of Niko Bellic and Johnny Klebitz, Luis Lopez ambushed the deal, knocking him out and stealing the diamonds seconds after spending 2 million cash on them. Isaac blames Ray Boccino for the betrayal, which in turn leads to his murder in the mission Late Checkout.

Mori Green

Partner of Issac Roth and was about to buy the diamonds off of Niko Bellic and Johnny Klebitz on behalf of the Pegorinos. Luis Lopez kills Mori then later steals the diamonds off of Issac Roth.

Jerry Kapowitz

In all of the people that are involved in stealing the diamonds, including the protagonists, Jerry was the luckiest. A homeless man, he appeared in the last cutscene in TBoGT where he was bumped by Luis and found the pouch with the diamonds inside. He inspects it and runs off gleefully and was decided that Jerry will keep the diamonds and plans to go to Vice City where he could establish a liquor shop and a gun store.

Mission appearances

Note the following missions are sorted in chronological order of the timeline.

Trivia

  • It is possible that the diamonds will make an appearance in the next GTA series.
  • Niko mentions that the diamonds are cursed and caused nothing but problems. This is fitting as the people who attempted to get the diamonds, suffered a consequence of some sort.

Diamonds in "Exposé"

The diamonds in Sun's hand

Paulo and Nikki plot to murder Howard L. Zukerman, presumably to be able to steal these diamonds, worth $8 million dollars. Following Zukerman's murder, Nikki and Paulo break into his safe, and steal the diamonds, which he had been hiding in a black pouch inside the innermost doll of the Matryoshka doll. They are planning to flee Sydney with the diamonds, and end up on the doomed Oceanic Flight 815.

Following the crash, Nikki is desperate to find the bag containing the doll and the diamonds, and enlists Paulo to help her scour the island looking for it. Paulo finds the bag (following a tip Nikki received from Kate) in the bottom of the waterfall where the Halliburton case had also been found. Paulo tells Nikki he was unable to find the bag, however he returns later to retrieve the doll and the diamonds. He hides the diamonds in the toilet tank in the Pearl. While hiding the diamonds, he overhears a conversation between Juliet and Ben regarding how Ben is going to convince Jack to do his surgery.)

Once the Pearl is discovered by Locke and Eko, Paulo removes the diamonds from the toilet and begins keeping them on his person (inside of his pants). Nikki discovers that Paulo had indeed found the bag, when he clumsily drops a packet of nicotine gum, which had also been in the bag. Furious, she leads Paulo into the jungle and throws a Medusa spider at him, causing nearly instant paralysis. Nikki searches Paulo and quickly locates the diamonds. While still able to speak, he tells Nikki that he did not want to tell Nikki he found the bag, for fear that she would no longer need him. Paulo spots another Medusa spider crawling on Nikki's shoe. Unable to speak, Paulo appears to try to communicate with his eyes that the spider is about to bite, but he is unsuccessful. After the spider bites Nikki, she runs a few paces and frantically buries the bag.

When Nikki and Paulo are found, paralyzed (and thought to be dead) Sawyer notices the dirt under Nikki's fingernails and the fresh mound of dirt, and quickly returns to the scene and claims the diamonds for himself. When confronted about his possible involvement in Nikki and Paulo's "deaths," Sawyer reveals his motives and gives the diamonds to Sun. However when Sun reveals to Sawyer that she knows that he and Charlie were responsible for her kidnapping, she gives the diamonds back to him, stating that they have no value on the island.

While burying Nikki and Paulo (believed to be dead), Sawyer removes the diamonds from their pouch and sprinkles them over their bodies. The diamonds are presumably still buried with the bodies.

Diamonds in Find 815

  • Talbot comes from a wealthy East Coast, New England family with a sketchy history in the diamond trade.
  • Sam is planing to propse to Sonya with a diamond wedding ring.

A detailed view of a diamond

A Diamond is a white gem used in Crafting. An uncut diamond can be cut by a player with 43 Crafting by using it with a chisel, granting 107.5 Crafting experience and making the uncut diamond into a diamond.

Uncut diamonds can be obtained in several ways. Players can get them randomly while mining ores, as drops from monsters or by selecting them as a reward from Random Event gifts. With level 40 mining and Shilo Village quest completed players can mine the gem rocks in Shilo Village. Gem rocks may also appear while playing the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup minigame, where players can mine them 3 times. It is possible to get uncut diamonds via Wall safe cracking in Rogue's den, but this requires level 50 thieving.

A cut diamond is the entry and exit fee for the marketplace in Zanaris. Most players exit the marketplace via teleport or the fairy rings within the market that take you to Al-Kharid.

Diamonds may be sold to the gem store in Falador west of the castle, to the gem stall in the Ardougne marketplace, or to the gem trader in Al-Kharid. The TzHaar gem trader does not carry any uncut diamonds in inventory, but will sell one for 300 Tokkul, if they are in stock, which is very rare.

Members can also use the Fletching skill to cut a diamond into diamond bolt tips by using a chisel on a 'cut' diamond at level 65 Fletching. Cutting a diamond into bolt tips grants the player 7 experience in the fletching skill and gives the player 12 diamond bolt tips.
