[Steven Universe] Pearl is secretly a diamond

Steven Universe is a show with many subtle secrets hidden within it. Fans have spent months picking through episodes and finding what appeared to be animation errors actually being subtle clues to upcoming episodes. One big theory is that one of the main characters isn't what they appear to be and is secretly a diamond.

There is actually a lot of convincing evidence as to why Pearl might in fact be White Diamond:
  • A pearl isn't actually a stone, it's the calcified organic byproduct of molluscs. As the Gems talk about Steven being unique due to his organic nature, Pearl can't be a pearl. The only explanation is that she is a different stone, disguised as a pearl.
  • Pearl's features resemble the hard lines of a diamond more than the soft curves of a pearl. Her hair tapers to a point. Her head can be seen as a diamond shape. Her nose is a diamond. If she puts her legs together and holds her hands together above her head, her body makes a perfect diamond. Can this possibly be coincidence?
  • Pearl never shapeshifts. Shapeshifting would reveal that she is in fact a diamond.
  • Pearl's spacesuit has a diamond on it, betraying her diamond nature.
  • In 'Maximum Capacity', Pearl's cardigan is covered in diamonds, teasing us as to her true form.
  • Pearl's spear is sharp, almost diamond-like!
  • Jasper realises that Pearl is not a real pearl, calling her a 'defective pearl'. But she is unable to realise Pearl's true nature as a diamond.
  • In 'Sworn to the Sword', Pearl sings about not being made to fight. No, she was made to rule, as a diamond.
  • Pearl is the master of lies. In 'So Many Birthdays' she declares her love of pie, and yet bare episodes later in 'Fusion Cuisine' she makes a fuss about how she hates to eat any food. What else is Pearl lying about?
  • Pearl seems very upset about Rose's death. This is strange. Perhaps Pearl is upset that she didn't get to kill Rose herself?
  • In 'Serious Steven', the characters enter a giant white diamond pyramid. Pearl is oddly reluctant to use her genius tactical nature to figure the pyramid out - could it be that she didn't want the other Gems to learn its secrets and deactivate it?

  • In 'The Return', Peridot's laser deliberately swerves to avoid Pearl when it's heading straight for her. Why could this be? Perhaps Pearl is Peridot's secret master?
  • Why does Pearl seem so interested in the Gem fragments in 'Secret Team'. Could she want to be using them for the same purpose as Peridot was in 'Keeping It Together'? 
So it's certainly probable that Pearl is actually White Diamond, not a pearl. But what does Pearl being a diamond mean to the show? Could she have disguised herself as Pearl in order to get closer to Rose, her true love? Or is there a more sinister reason?

Could Pearl have infiltrated Rose's resistance group for evil purposes? Could she have set Rose's group against Homeworld in an attempt to cause a civil war that she would be the final victor of?

Consider: Steven has been put in danger more times by Pearl, not by any other monsters or Gems. As he has the Rose Quartz gem, Steven is Pearl's biggest rival. This is why she attempts to blow him up in 'Space Race' and let him tumble to his doom in 'Rose's Scabbard'. In 'So Many Birthdays' on learning that Steven is dying as he is too depressed, Pearl instantly becomes a depressing clown in an attempt to make him even sadder, stopped only when the other Gems explicitly accuse her of trying to murder Steven. Remember, the only evidence that Pearl actually cares about Steven's wellbeing is in 'Say Uncle', and that episode is 100% non-canon.

Can it be any coincidence that Pearl attempted to flee Earth just as Lapis made it off-planet? Was Pearl planning on rejoining her Diamond Authority cronies for the final war on Earth?

  13. Cushions cuts have a gentle appeal thanks to their softly rounded edges. But perhaps what makes them so special is their fire. No other diamond cut can rival the fire in cushion cut diamonds. If you prefer a diamond that gives off plenty of colored flashes, then the cushion cut is the one for you.

  14. More so, the cushion cut diamond dates to as early as the 1800s, which makes everyone eventually understand the significant reason behind the above statement. The cushion cut diamond generally exists in different forms. The different types range from the antique cushion diamonds cuts to the modern cushion cuts. With that in mind, it is rather clear that there is a higher probability of there being a cushion for every taste the buyer has.
