help oneself to One of the thieves was struck by a heavy statue, but he was too busy helping himself to diamonds to notice any pain. What does "help oneself to" here mean?

"taking". If you go to a friend's house for dinner, they might invite you to "help yourself to some salad". It just means to take something yourself without having to be served it, when you want it.
