40px TBC Jewelcrafting (Profession)

Jewelcrafting is a profession which was introduced in the Burning Crusade expansion. Players are able to make rings, trinkets, necklaces and statues, as well as cut gems for socketed items. Figurines are Jewelcrafter only items, and are a type of trinket that is Bind on Pickup. Special in Wrath of the Lich King are jewelcrafter only gems, which have stats bonuses that exceed the standard gems; they are varying cuts of dragon's eye and three jewelcrafter only gems may be equipped at one time.

Those who have not purchased the expansion are able to use items created by Jewelcrafting, although only those with the Burning Crusade are able to learn the Jewelcrafting profession itself.

Jewelcrafting also allows a player to cut gems recovered from mineral ores (copper, iron, mithril, etc) via Prospecting. Five pieces of ore are used up each time Prospecting is cast and the type and level of the gems prospected is dependent on the type of ore used as reagents.

Icy Prism and Brilliant Glass are two jewelcrafting recipes which combine lesser gems and reagents and create rarer gems.


Stones can be crafted into statues which are a bind on pick up, jewelcrafter only items. They are one use items which can restore health.

Low level gemsEdit

Low level gems are used as reagents in jewelcrafting recipes. These gems can not be cut, can not be socketed, nor do they have specific stats attributes.

High level gemsEdit

High level gems are only found in ore nodes in Outland and Northrend and can only be prospected from ore mined from those continents. Each high level colored gem has a color type:red, orange, yellow, green, blue, or purple and can be cut to have specific attributes which boost stats. Uncut gems can be used in crafting recipes to make other pieces of jewelry, and cut gems are placed within sockets to customize stats bonuses. Items with colored (red/blue/yellow) gem sockets have an additional "socket bonus" that can be activated if cut gems of the appropriate color are placed in all its sockets. Red, orange, and purple match red gem sockets, orange, yellow, and green match yellow sockets and green, blue, and purple match blue sockets. Mismatched gems can be socketed in any socket, albeit the socket bonus will be lost. Uncut gems can be stacked in piles of 20, whereas each cut gem takes up a bag slot and can not be stacked.

Aside from colored gems, there are two additional types of gems, prismatic and meta gems. Prismatic gems match any color socket, except for meta-gem sockets. Meta gems are uncolored gems which only fit in special meta gem sockets and have a set of prerequisite gems of specific color types which must already be socketed in any of the equipped gear for the meta gem to be activated. However, a gem which can fit in two color sockets, can also be counted twice to meet the meta gem prerequisites. For example, 1 red gem, 1 purple gem, can meet the prerequisites for a meta gem requiring 2 red gems and a blue gem to be activated.

Certain items from Outland and Northrend have gem sockets. Blacksmiths, however, can add colorless sockets to their own bracers and gloves, and create [Eternal Belt Buckle] for players to add a colorless socket to high-level belts.

Tools Edit

Jewelcrafting beyond the most basic designs requires a [Jeweler's Kit].
At jewelcrafting skill level 300, gem cutting and a few high end jewelry items require a [Simple Grinder].

Learning Jewelcrafting Edit

In order to begin your jewelcrafting career you must first have the Burning Crusade expansion. After that all that is required is for you to head to the Jewelcrafting Trainer in any major city. One of the racial abilities for the draenei is a 5-point bonus to the jewelcrafting skill. However, this is of very limited value.

The most basic recipes are apprentice jewelcrafting designs. More advanced are journeyman jewelcrafting designs, followed by expert jewelcrafting designs, artisan jewelcrafting designs, and master jewelcrafting designs. Grand Master jewelcrafting designs are taught by trainers in Northrend, in either Howling Fjord, Borean Tundra, or Dalaran. Most of the highest level recipes can only be purchased with [Dalaran Jewelcrafter's Tokens].

Faction Designs Edit

Some designs are only learnable after achieving a certain reputation level with a particular faction. These are listed at the faction designs entry.

Gem Cutting Edit

Once you reach level 300 in Jewelcrafting, you can begin to learn to cut gems for sockets. These cuts are not taught by a trainer, but must be bought from the Master Jewelcrafter of your faction in Hellfire Peninsula, or various faction vendors that require a certain level of reputation with them before you can purchase the designs.

Gemcutting Recipe Vendor Locations
Faction NPC Vendor Name Location
AllianceAlliance Tatiana Honor Hold Inn, Hellfire Peninsula, Outland
HordeHorde Kalaen Thrallmar, Hellfire Peninsula, Outland

Most cuts are purchasable from a faction quartermasters in Outland, although one cut (315 blue) is a world drop. Most cuts at 350 skill are learned from world drops. See Gem Attributes below for more information about specific cuts.

List of cuts for Wrath:

Socketing Edit

Main article: Socket

Equipment with sockets on them are found in Outland and Northrend. Gems are cut by Jewelcrafters can cut raw gems into jewels which can then be placed into the socket, giving the item bonus stats. A socketed gem can be replaced with a different gem, but this will destroy the original gem.

Colors Edit

Main article: Gem

Gems come in eight colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, prismatic, and meta. Excluding meta gems and sockets, any colored gem will fit into any colored socket. However, matching the gem and socket colors allows for the socket bonus to be activated. Primary-color gems - red, yellow, and blue - will only match sockets for their color. Secondary-color gems - green, orange, and purple - will match either of the two slots that correspond to their color. Finally, tertiary-color gems (which include only the Void Sphere and Prismatic Sphere) will fit into any color slot (excluding meta) and still activate the slot bonus. Secondary gems also have combinations of two different bonuses, while primary gems only boost one stat. Meta gems possess their own color requirements to activate, so a player might choose to forfeit an item's socket bonus in favor of a more desirable meta bonus. The two prismatic gems (Void and Prismatic Spheres, which are crafted by enchanters) will, since they are a combination of all colors, provide resistance to all forms of magic.

For example, a basic red cut is to turn a Blood Garnet into a Teardrop Blood Garnet, giving +13 healing spells. A basic yellow cut is to turn a Golden Draenite into a Brilliant Golden Draenite, giving +6 intellect. However, a Flame Spessarite is an orange gem that can be cut into a Luminous Flame Spessarite, a gem that gives both +7 healing and +3 intellect and will match either a red or yellow socket.

There are many gems that can be cut to fit in sockets. For each color, there is an uncommon gem, which can be cut using patterns from vendors and quartermasters that are learnable at jewelcrafting skill 300 to 325; and a rare gem, which can be cut according to rare, world drop designs learnable at jewelcrafting skill 350. Meta gems fit into meta sockets, which only appear on high-level head-slot items, and cuts for them are learnable at jewelcrafting skill 365, although some meta-slot jewels are boss drops and cannot be crafted. Raw meta gems are produced by alchemists by transmuting a number of raw minerals and primals into special diamonds.

There are also epic equivalents of each gem colour, obtained through mining nodes in the Mount Hyjal instance, drops from mobs in the Black Temple or they can also be traded in Shattrath City for Badges of Justice. The designs for their respective cuts are available through reputation with Scale of the Sands or Shattered Sun Offensive.

Interface Edit

Gems can be socketed by shift+right-clicking an item that has sockets. This will bring up a window with sockets appearing at the bottom for you to drop the gem(s) into. After placing your gems into the sockets you want, click the "Socket Gems" button to socket the gems.

A socketed gem can be replaced with a different gem, but the original gem will be completely destroyed by this.
