When logged in, you can access your collection management by clicking "My Collections" in the top right of most pages.

🪼 So I may have found an alternative solution to accessing & creating new collections:
  1. Go to your profile and select " View all collections" under the public collections widget.
  2. Select the "Diamonds" or "Favorites" tab and the "My Collections" should be at the bottom.
🪼 I've provided screenshots in the link below:

let me know if the photos aren't working, happy gaming! (˶ᵔ ᵕ ᵔ˶)
