When you dig in a straight line, you're exposing 4 layers - your feet/eyes where you're digging and also below your feet and your head. Diamonds are mostly found at layers 5-12 and a sharp decline in appearance begins at layer 13. Therefore, if you want to be efficient then exposing layer 13 isn't worth it.
The 2 best locations to dig are 7 or 11 (eye level). Either of these expose 4 blocks around you that have very high chances of containing diamonds.
Just watch out for lava.

From lava but so you can turn lava caves into obsidian and cover much more ground if you find a cave.

I also recommend either using silk touch on diamonds and redstone in order to store the ores, then be able to mine them with Fortune III later on when you need the items/experience.
