* Manages to be an important plot point in an episode of ''Series/{{Merlin}}'' in which Merlin is suffering from a range of visions that prophesy that Morgana will try to kill the king. One of them is of her unsheathing a GemEncrusted dagger, and it's through Merlin's indirect intervention that Arthur swaps a very plain dagger (that he was originally going to give Morgana for her birthday) with the gem-covered murder weapon from Merlin's vision.

* One "camo" scheme available for gear in ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2'' is Diamond, which is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin exactly what]] [[BlingBlingBang it sounds like]], and looks as [[http://callofduty.wikia.com/wiki/Diamond ridiculous as you'd think.]] Of course, given the incredibly difficult requirements for unlocking it, it's really more of a BraggingRightsReward than a legitimate camouflage option.

* In ''GoldieGoldAndActionJack'', Goldie had a diamond encrusted nail clipper.
* When ''TheSimpsons'' went to Africa they met a NoCelebritiesWereHarmed version of Jane Goodall, who was using the chimps she was ostensibly studying to mine diamonds for her. She had diamonds HiddenInPlainSight everywhere, even on the bottoms of her shoes (a ShoutOut to the song "Diamonds on the Soles of her Shoes")

** The bejeweled ermine dress in ''Manga/RoseOfVersailles'' is heavily based on [[https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Marie_Leszczynska_by_François_Albert_Stiemart,_1726,_Versailles.jpg this dress worn by Marie Leszczynska, wife of Louis XV]]. There are several other paintings of royal ladies with dresses trimmed with furs studded with jewels. Although some could have been embellishments by the painters.

* The design aesthetic of ''Warhammer'''s High Elves involves quite a lot of this, with their armour and weaponry tending to have dozens of cut oval gemstones embedded into surfaces, as well as a profusion of jewelled bracelets, crowns and belts. The higher-ranking High Elf models can have anything up to forty such stones sculpted on, and even the lowliest rank and file troopers tend to at least have three or four (most commonly on matched pairs of bracelets or vambraces, one on the brow on a helm or circlet and one adorning a metal belt or sash).
* ''Warhammer 40,000'''s Eldar are, if anything, even more gem-encrusted than their High Elf fantasy counterparts, though the oval gemstone shapes on the models can just as easily be painted as blisters in the high-tech plastics they build in. The gemstones are not all decorative, however, as psychically-attuned spirit stones play a huge role in Craftworld Eldar society - providing their souls succour from the predations of a thirsting god when they die. As such many of the gemstones in Eldar technology contain the souls of departed Eldar to control the devices.

* In the ''ArmyOfTwo'' series, weapons can be gold plated and diamond encrusted, including grenades. A diamond encrusted frag grenade would actually be good, if a bit expensive.

* Once commonly done with weapons including ones actually meant to be taken into battle. This sort of thing was the mark of the ProudWarriorRace tradition that had aristocrats who wanted custom weapons. Modern armies are more interested in [[CombatPragmatist killing people efficiently]] and you can (usually) do that better by issueing more cheap weapons to more people than with the expense of a decorated one. For similar reasons, Greeks and Romans played down that sort of thing.
