Receivers Of The Diamond Play Button
Difference from Other Buttons
The award is different from other creator awards, as it is displayed as a small sculpture, rather than contained in metal casing like the previous two. However, the Red Diamond Play Button is very similar to it, since it has an identical design, but is made from a different material and is differently colored. It lists the YouTuber's name on the back along the sentence, "Congrats on receiving 10 million subscribers." The button is made of hard diamond, meaning it's at the medium difficulty of breaking it.
