In the original version, Diamond Armlet is an accessory that provides higher quality items from treasures most of the time. It requires the Accessories 18 license to equip and can be bought for 20,000 gil at Dalmasca Estersand, found at Tchita Uplands (Garden of Life's Circle), dropped from Mom Bomb (3% chance), or by doing the Hunt Club sidequest.
In the Zodiac versions, Diamond Armlet provides immunity to Lightning-elemental attacks. It requires the Accessories 3 license to equip, and can be bought for 12,000 gil at Phon Coast, dropped from Mom Bomb (3% chance), or found at Dalmasca Westersand (Windtrace Dunes), Zertinan Caverns (Sandfalls), and Pharos - Subterra (Penumbra - North). It is also available in Trial Mode Stage 1, in one of two chests, and stolen from Dheed in Stage 67. It can be loaded into the main game after completing the stage(s).
Diamond Armlet is only effective when equipped on the party leader or on Vaan when in towns. It affects the item content when the treasure (1) spawns (2) is not gil. Two items are available, usually splitting the chance in a 90–10 fashion (original) or 95–5 fashion (Zodiac), with the higher chance usually being a Knot of Rust. The two items can also be the same item. Cerobi Steppe is a notable area where all treasures can have a rare item when the Diamond Armlet is equipped, however, the chance to get the rare treasure from these chests is still phenomenally low.
In the original release, the Diamond Armlet increases the gil amount that chests give, but in the Zodiac versions, the gil amount is unchanged. One notable use for the Diamond Armlet in the Zodiac versions is the Trial Mode treasures, which can change quite drastically with it equipped. Whereas the player could ruin their chances at some treasures in the original version by equipping or not equipping the Diamond Armlet when looting a treasure, the Zodiac versions have various "fixed" treasures that always yield a certain item or ability no matter if the player has a Diamond Armlet equipped. The exception to this is the new invisible super equipment, which are mostly Easter eggs as they appear to be items used for testing the game and thus don't have models.
