How to Craft Gems

Upon completing the quest, players will have access to the crafting system and can create any gem they desire, provided they have the necessary materials. The system allows for the creation of more potent gems using ones that have been found or dropped. Crude gems can be discovered throughout the world or obtained by defeating enemies, while chipped gems can be crafted from crude gems. The same will apply to further tiers as well. To craft the next best gem, players will always require three gems of the previous, lower quality.

Visiting the Jeweler and upgrading gems will result in even better stats when placed in your gear. The next level of gems will work this way: three lower tier gems will always be required to craft the next improved version of the same gem.

How to Add Sockets

Aside from crafting gems, players can also insert gems into sockets on their gear to enhance their stats.
The following types of gear can have sockets:

  • Head – 1 Socket
  • Chest – 2 Sockets
  • Pants – 2 Sockets
  • Amulet – 1 Socket
  • Ring – 1 Socket
  • 1-Handed Weapon – 1 Socket
  • 2-Handed Weapon – 2 Sockets
  • Off-Hand Focus – 1 Socket
  • Bow – 2 Sockets

However, some items drop without any sockets. In such cases, players can visit the Jeweler to manually add a socket to the item, but this will require a Scattered Prism. These can be obtained by looting treasure Goblins or as a drop from World Bosses, such as Ashava the Pestilent.

Adding a Socket

How to Remove Gems from Sockets

The Jeweler allows you to remove gems from item sockets, for a price. This costs a certain amount of Gold, with the cost going up as the Item Power of the item itself increases.

Removing gems this way is only useful if you wish to replace the gem with a different type of higher quality of gem. Otherwise, if you are simply upgrading the gear piece itself (and plan to Salvage it), paying to have gem removed is pointless, since the act of Salvaging it is free of cost and returns your gem to you. Check out our Blacksmith Guide for more information about how to Salvage items.

Upgrading Jewelry

The Jeweler is also helpful for upgrading jewelry, which can be done spending gold and materials, similar to other gear upgrades at the Blacksmith. However, it is not recommended to upgrade Magic or lower tier Items, due to the increasing costs of gold and materials.

  • Rare items can be upgraded three times.
  • Legendary items can be upgraded four times.

Note: the cost for each upgrade level will increase.

Overall, the Jeweler is an important NPC and should be visited regularly in order to help players significantly improve their equipment, and progress through Diablo 4.
