The current condition of Pink Diamond.
Great Diamond Authority Symbol
Currently, we do not know who is Pink Diamond nor how she looks like. We've seen in other structures and buildings before the war occurred, that there were symbols that consists of four diamonds of different colors: White, Blue, Yellow and Pink. Now on new or modern structures, the new symbol had the same three colored triangles, but with the pink symbol removed.
Sky Arena Statues
Based on the symbol, Yellow, Blue and White Diamond are still alive or in power. In "Sworn to the Sword", we first saw the four diamond symbol on the Ancient Sky Arena. In the arena, we also saw four statues of gems, possibly statues of the Diamonds. Three of the statues are still in good shape and one of them is destroyed. I'm assuming that the statue that was destroyed was Pink Diamond's.
Why Pink Diamond isn't broken
But did Pink Diamond really got shattered? I think it's more likely that Pink Diamond was only removed from authority and power. She might be trapped inside a gem powered item or imprisoned as a punishment for doing a crime. Even if Pink Diamond's crime was really unacceptable, she shouldn't be shattered. Diamonds shouldn't break a fellow Diamond is because there are only four diamonds in existence or at least they're the rarest and most powerful of all gems. Update (s5) Now that we have seen Pink Diamond, we can further come to the realization that she is in fact alive. When we first saw Steven have diamond dreams, it was because of Blue Diamond's presence on earth. Stevonnie was on an alien planet, in a diamond base when the Pink Diamond dream occured. Taking what little we know about Steven's power in the dreams, and why he had diamond dreams before, we can gather that Pink Diamond is alive and possibly even on that planet.
Since Diamonds are the rarest and the most powerful gems that governs Homeworld. In the new symbol of the Great Diamond Authority, the pink symbol is removed. Pink Diamond is removed from the authority because of probably doing something unacceptable. But she isn't broken or shattered because she is a Diamond, the rarest gem. So she couldn't be shattered as a punishment, but rather bubbled or trapped inside an item.
Confirmed Partially Cannon - Season 5, Episode 18 "A Single Pale Rose"
In "A Single Pale Rose", it is revealed that Pearl and Pink Diamond conspired to allow Pink Diamond to escape her duties as a Diamond and faked Pink Diamond's shattering, with Pearl pretending to be Rose Quartz. From there, it is revealed that Pink Diamond takes the guise of Rose Quartz from then on, with Rose (Pink Diamond) eventually taking the form of Steven Universe. Thus, while not technically trapped nor being within an item, her gem is being used to operate something.
