  • Okay, bear with me here:

    Has anyone else noticed that the only gems we've EVER seen wearing see-through clothes are pearls?

    Blue pearl, yellow pearl, our pearl, they all at some point wore see-through clothes. For Blue pearl, it's her skirt, yellow pearl, her shoulder puffs. For our pearl, it was her skirt and the top of her shirt (before she got a new form). But in flashbacks, we see she wore more see-through clothes, one version of her having a poncho-like thing.

    It's pretty much agreed that Pearls were live slaves on Homeworld. They 'belonged' to other gems. They were to be completely subserviant, obey orders, and 'stand and look pretty'. That's slavery.

    It could be that the mark of a pearls enslavement was their see-through clothes. After all, NO OTHER type of gem is EVER seen wearing see-through clothes.

    And what backs this theory up most is our CURRENT PEARL. She is the only known pearl who is competely independant and free, and SHE ISN'T WEARING SEE-THROUGH. By becoming independant, she cast off those clothes, because they were the mark of enslavement on Homeworld.

    "But wait" - you say. "In flashbacks, out Pearl wore see-through clothes even when she was free, and part of the rebellion." 

    True, but even though Pearl was free from Homeworld, she was never truly independant until much later. Her mindset was still trained to be subserviant to someone - Rose. She was devoted to rose. In her mind, she stiill wasn't truly independant. It wasn't until AFTER Rose died that Pearl stopped wearing see-through, and became free.

    What doyou think? Agree disagree?

    • I think most if not all fans would agree with this. In fact Rhodonite even has her shawl and we can assume that this belongs to her Pearl component. Makes sense, good theory

    • Nice theory, nice eye

    • Yeah, I always thought of that. It really makes sense

    • As I see it, it's more of the reverse. The Pearls are made to be decorative servants and as such, their outfits reflect that. Usually a tutu like outfit for the purposes of dancing or just general entertainment for the gems they belong to. Hence the see through material just adds that aesthetic appeal for HW higher ups.

      That makes sense. Wow...thats really messed up.

    • One might also theorize that it is an inherent aspect of a Pearls form to have this translucent clothing.  It might then serve as a marker of their status but it would not have been assigned to them by anyone.

      This dose bring up a good point about how gems get their 'uniforms' do they pop out of the ground naked? (we know Jasper had her helmet on but we have never seen a gem change it's summoned weapon, but clothing is changed frequently).  Their uniforms have diamond insignia on them and yet we know that many gem types serve more then one diamond, so they have to be told which color diamond to display at some point.  If they are created can Peridot do so even though she can not shape-shift, we saw Pearl create a 'flight-suit' without the normal turning into liquid-light that always happens with a shapeshift.

      THAT MEANS PERIDOT COULD PUT ON A STAR WHEN EVER SHE WANTS, SHE DOSN"T NEED TO POOF, WE HAVE BEEN BARKING UP THE WRONG TREE ALL THIS TIME!

      Probablly not, she doesn't have any powers other than her metal powers as far as we know, and even if she does, she probably isn't aware of them or something

    • But that would mean that Peridot had to come out of the ground with a yellow diamond on her uniform, that can't be true because it would mean that a gem in formation underground knows what diamond is is going to serve.  But Amathyst clearly disproves that, she had no idea that other gems even existed and talked to the rocks around her.

    • Amethyst probably had a pink diamond in her uniform when she emerged

        Loading editor
    • If so Amethyst likely didn't get what it meant. It's also possible that their Gemstones are programmed to have a certain diamond on the uniform when they first emerge then every other time it has to be manually set.

    • I think the uniform they emerge with (except gems that are arleady a diamond's color, they always belong to the diamond with the same color, idk about pink diamond's gem though) is decided before they start making them. For example if Yellow Diamond need some new amethysts for some reason, she can specifically choose an amethyst to be made for her.

    • How could a gem be programmed to have a pre-assigned diamond logo on it's form while still being completly ignorant that the diamonds, let alone other gems even exist?  If the kindergarteners can program a gem with such detail as to control their form why don't they give them any usefull information, or atleast a submisive nature that would make them more ideal pawns of a totolitarian society?

      This just dosn't make sense, we have seen too much evidence that gem creation is an unpredictable process that can't produce consistent results.  We have also seen on several instances the 'marionet' shape that gems first show when reforming which is followed by a rapid play-through of all their subsiquent forms, this strongly sugjests they come out of the ground in a kind of base state which has no uniform, or even a face for that matter.  This is symbolic that gems are blank-slates (much like humans) and that their society is not at all natural or inevitable despite what they have been lead to belive.

    • I assume that the gem pops out of the ground knowing who they belong to and with similar base information. Similar to how newly born animals (outside of neural defects) having basal/primitive insticts hardwired within them, that is, in the absence of learning. Normality is relatively consistent in animals as they are in Gem production. Remember, the Alpha kindergarten has near similar holes within them. It was only in the Beta kindergarten, during the rush of war, did the incosistencies of arose.

      Another point is that the Alpha Kindergarten, having made seemingly normal gems, produced Amethyst who is defective because of staying too long in her hole. While on the other hand, Jasper was produced seeminly perfect in the kindergarten with the supposed higher chance of producing defectives. Gem production, by and large, is a pridictable and consistent process, if they follow certain protocols or procedures; similar to the production of almost anything, that includes humans (In humans, this is usually seen in pregnancy, where the gravid mother has limited things on what they can eat or do, failure to do so has a higher chance of the child having defects).

      Another thing to not is the personality of the gem in question. It seems all Gems of the same type, have close personality types. The Peridots seen are quite technical, the Rubies are a little lacking in the thinking department (but they are far from being idiots), Pearls have a penchant for loyal servitude, the Jaspers seen have been shown to be very condescending, while the Amethysts have been extremely lax.

      With that in mind, it would not be surprising if Amethyst popped out of the ground already knowing what Diamond she belonged to or of other Gems but just did not care enough to even try to remember them as she popped out alone. We never really did see how she popped or how she was then. And Jasper, by her account, said that she popped out of the ground fighting, seemingly saying that she was already battle ready for her Diamond the moment she got out of the ground.

      In terms of Gems's clothing when they pop out of the ground, they could still be programmed to already have their Diamond's insignia on them when they pop out. Similar to how a human's general appearance is already predisposed by the genes in their cell even if they are still a single cell of a newly fertilized egg.

      But as we’ve seen with Peggy she really has no idea HOW to do her job despite being a day old. The way I see it, when gems come out they know about their job and how to do it, just not how to do it. Like when you’re a teacher, there’s a difference between knowing the material and knowing HOW to do the material or implement it. Then they’re given a brief orientation and get their first mission, like “you’re Pearl facet 4566 cut 456 and you are a handmaid to Morganite and you were made for blue diamond.”

    • Leggy is a Ruby, who are known to be less than what I'd assume a Jasper would be in terms of duties. And I never said they know exactly what their job is, more of they know the basics of what they are. The nuances of how they do their job is probably learned along the way.

    • The more I think about it, the more I agree. Going back to teaching, you can learn everything about the job but it’s more knowing how to teach it and what to do with the kids.

      Or if you work in an office and sell stuff. It’s less about knowing of the product and more about how to sell it.
