Diamonds are a rare and valuable (sold for $1500) miscellaneous item found on occasion as loot and quest rewards in Dead Island. Diamonds are used in the creation of the Developer's Craft blueprints, and for this purpose are required in larger quantities.
Diamonds also appear in Dead Island: Riptide, having a lower value of $991. They are not used for any recipes, but can be turned into Jorge for a high amount of cash and XP in the recurring quest A Collector.
Diamonds are used to create Developer No. 1, No. 2, No. 3, No. 4, and No. 666 Crafts. It is best to not sell Diamonds if one is planning on crafting Developer Crafts or to buy something to not lose a lot of money on death.
