In a contemporary band setting (guitar, bass, drums, keys) "Diamonds" can be described as a part in the song where the melodic instruments may hold a note (or drop out) and the drums continue playing leading the rest of the band back into the next section.

I'm sure there are several other (and more musically appropriate) explanations. Maybe it could even be explained as a "Fermata" (bird's eye) or even a "fill". Whatever the case it can be confusing and should probably be understood by all parties in the group which term is going to be used.
