Use the following syntax to use superscripts and subscripts with diamond products or diamond symbols.

\diamond^{superscript}_{subscript}

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\begin{document}
\textbf{Use superscript and subscript}\\[3pt]
   $\verb|\diamond^n_{i=0}|\longrightarrow\diamond^n_{i=o}$\\[3pt]
   $\verb|\diamondsuit^n_{i=0}|\longrightarrow\diamondsuit^n_{i=o}$\\[3pt]
   $\verb|\blacklozenge^n_{i=0}|\longrightarrow\blacklozenge^n_{i=o}$\\[3pt]
   $\verb|\lozenge^n_{i=0}|\longrightarrow\lozenge^n_{i=o}$
\end{document}

A typical bulleted listing uses the large dot symbol, but you can also use the diamond symbol if you prefer. Explained by example below

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amssymb,enumitem}
\begin{document}
\textbf{This is a list:}
\begin{itemize}[label=$\diamond$]
    \item this is first item
    \item this is second item
    \item this is third item
\end{itemize}
\textbf{This is another list:}
\begin{itemize}[label=$\blacklozenge$]
    \item this is first item
    \item this is second item
    \item this is third item
\end{itemize}
\end{document}

Output :
