    Be on creative mode or grief from someone. Otherwise you will not get diamonds without mining

    Or he could use /give  or /i
    or just ask someone for diamonds diamond pic or obby
    you should create customised world while customizing you should make diamond ore spawn size large and lava oceans and lakes spawn size 0 so you can get diamonds easily and allow cheats and set dificullty peace ful so monsters will not attack and make difficulty locked with peaceful and get 100 or 99 diamonds

    if you find an NPC village, sometimes there may be a chest in someones house. so open it up and hope to get lucky.

    You'll really need to mine, but here's how to do it safely. Press Shift+F3 to bring up the coordinates, and mine down to Y12. As long as you're at Y12, it's extremely unlikely you'll mine into lava, since lava pools spawn just below. You will find lots of diamonds at this level, but you'll be able to make paths across lava pools that you find.

    There may be obsidian in a smithy's chest. Diamonds, too. Some villagers will charge 10 emralds for a diamond pickaxe. You can get emeralds by trading and looting temple chests.

    Go to the bedrock layer (the very last layer, it's black and white and impossible to dig though in survival mode). I suggest taking about 4 pick axes with you. Anyway, go to the bedrock, and go up ten layers by jumping and putting a block underneath you when you jump. Dig around with your pick axe(s) and after about 5-10 minutes you will get a lot of stuff, this is the amount I got. Iron(17) gold(8)  diamonds(8) redstone(a lot but I couldn't figure out how to get it) coal(14). You have to dig around a bit longer to find diamonds though. Good luck!! Ps that way you won't run into lava
