This is achieved by starting to dig a tunnel at level 6, making it 1 block wide, about 4 blocks tall and keep going for about 10 blocks. If you find nothing, head back out and go down two blocks and start a new tunnel with the same dimensions. Now you should have two 1 x 10 x 4 tunnels two blocks apart. This maximises the chances of finding diamond as you are exposing new blocks with every tunnel. Do this for each cardinal direction, so you have a small central area to come back to and store or smelt ores. With this method I often find quite a few.
Alternatively you could start at level 6 and just dig out a massive chamber in all directions. This is most time consuming but yields more diamonds. I currently have a 200 x 200 x 4 chamber under my house where I have found 3 full stacks of diamonds.

now seriously, MY best place is layer 5.

<--- layer 12
<--- layer 11
<--- layer 10
<--- layer 9
do this in parallel running shafts and you will have a stack of diamonds very soon
*also diamonds may be found in blacksmith chests, desert temples, mineshafts, dungeons, and jungle temples, although they are fairly rare

Take note that on levels 1-4 bedrock always spawns soo branch mining is there by ineffective"
its up to you to decide what level to mine but also take note if you branch mine you will discover Lava pits and caves quite frequently and I do suggest going into caves is that is where I always find my first diamonds then I branch mine out from there.
Also to let you know the best layers to find diamonds are Y: 5-13
