Jeweler Overview

In Diablo 4, players can greatly improve their equipment and progress through the game by using Jeweler features, such as unsocketing gems, adding sockets, and crafting gems. This guide will explain how to use the Jeweler and all these features. We also have a guide that covers the entire gear system within Diablo 4, which is relevant and which we recommend reading as well:

Gear Systems in Diablo 4

How to Unlock The Jeweler

When you play the game for the first time, you have to reach Level 20 to receive a new objective, which will then direct you to Kratia, the Jeweler in Kyovashad within Fractured Peaks, as a priority quest.

How to Craft Gems

Upon completing the quest, you will have access to the crafting system and can create any gem you desire, provided you have the necessary materials. The system allows for the creation of more potent gems, by using gemstone fragments that have been found or dropped. Gem fragments can be discovered throughout the world, as drops from Whisper Caches, or obtained by defeating enemies. The higher the tier of gem that is crafted, the more fragments it will cost. The same naturally applies to further tiers as well, and so on.

Gem Types

Gems in Diablo 4 are divided into several types, each offering unique bonuses and providing varying stats depending on the socket they are placed in.

Visiting the Jeweler and upgrading gems will result in even better stats when placed in your gear.

How to Add Sockets

Aside from crafting gems, you can also place gems in sockets on your characters’ gear to boost 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, you can visit the Jeweler to manually add a socket to the item, but this will require a Scattered PrismScattered Prism. These can be obtained by looting treasure Goblins, completing legion events, or as a drop from World Bosses, such as Ashava the Pestilent.

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 the 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.

Overall, the Jeweler is an important NPC that should be visited on a regular basis to help you improve your equipment and advance through your Diablo 4 journey.
