Diamonds are a type of currency that were introduced into the hotel on September 28th 2012 as part of the Jetset campaign, originally as a temporary currency specific to the campaign. They were obtained by purchasing Credits via the Habbo website - for each 5 Credits a user purchased, 1 Diamond was also added to their account. Diamonds could not be exchanged/redeemed/traded to other users and they could only be used on 5 items in the Catalogue, under the category "Diamond Rares".
Unlike other seasonal currencies, you could not buy any item solely with Diamonds and they had to be partnered with Credits. For example, in the "Diamond Rares" category, a Diamond Throne would cost you 40 credits and 8 Diamonds. A diamond was equivalent to 5 Credits, so it would have realistically cost 90 Credits. The Diamond Rares only remained in the catalogue for 3 days and were removed on October 1st 2012.
The Diamonds currency returned in December 2012, allowing players to exchange them for Credits and more rares. Rares included were Small Ruby, Big Ruby, and Platinum Bar. Other new rares such as The Nutcracker and North Pole were also included. Due to many complaints, the Platinum Bar was removed as it was supposed to be a limited currency and shouldn't have been released again.
Users can tell how many Diamonds they have acquired by checking the same area as the display for credits. The same Diamond icon is used in the catalogue.
Diamonds as Loyalty Currency
On the 17th June 2014, Diamonds was brought back to replace the previous Loyalty Points. The currency system was mostly the same, except that new furniture including credit exchangeable items could be purchased with diamonds. Builders Club subscription was also offered for 80 diamonds and credits at the time.
1 diamond is awarded for each credit that is purchased. Originally, in the event of a double Credits offer, the same number of Diamonds were received for the same price even though twice the credits were received. This has since been rectified, and a double offer will grant double the amount of both diamonds and credits.
Diamonds are also sometimes needed, together with credits, to purchase certain Room Bundles and furniture packs. Most notably, Rares tend to cost an equal number of credits and diamonds to purchase and also come with a Badge, thereby requiring a user to have bought credits directly from Habbo to complete badge collections.
