Diamonds is the ultimate greatest hits album by British singer-songwriter Elton John spanning his biggest hits from 1970 to 2016. The album was released on 10 November 2017. It was released in a single disc version, a 2-CD version, a 3-CD deluxe box set and a 2-LP vinyl version. It has been described as an updated version of the 2002 compilation Greatest Hits 1970-2002, which is currently out of print.
It is the first Elton John career-spanning compilation released since Rocket Man: The Definitive Hits in 2007. It was released to commemorate the 50 years of John's work with lyricist Bernie Taupin, since 1967. Although their collaboration began in 1967, the oldest hit in the album is "Your Song", from the 1970 album Elton John. The limited edition 3-CD box set version of Diamonds includes a 72-page hardback book with annotations for the stories behind each track and a set of five postcards of illustrations of Elton John by contemporary artist Richard Kilroy.
In January 2019, the British Phonographic Industry certified Diamonds Platinum for sales of 300,000 units. In the United States the Recording Industry Association of America certified Diamonds Gold for sales of 500,000 units.
