Jewels are crafted at a jeweler's station by combining a gemstone with a filigree. They are used as activators in the making of trinkets, and also as upgrade components for trinkets of exotic and lower rarity. Corresponding gemstones and jewels (e.g. a Garnet Pebble (gemstone) and an Adorned Garnet Jewel (jewel)) both give a bonus to the same attributes, although the amount of bonus given by the jewel is greater than that from the gemstone.

Unlike gemstones, jewels do not have dedicated storage slots in the material storage section of the account vault (and therefore cannot be deposited remotely), though like all items they can be stored in the general bank area.

Similarly, unlike gemstones, jewels cannot be used as an upgrade component for armor or weapon upgrades.


Jewels, like gemstones, can be used in multiple ways:

  • Crafting material - When incorporated during the crafting process, a jewel creates a Masterwork version of the same item that is made using the gemstone of the same tier. The required level to equip and attribute bonuses of the finished item are usually higher than those of the Fine item made with the gemstone.
  • Upgrade component - Jewels may be added to a trinket of exotic or lower rarity (including a back item) with an Upgrade Slot.png unused upgrade slot, giving that item the attribute bonuses inherent to the jewel, in addition to those the item already possessed. Note that like other upgrade components, jewels cannot be removed from an item (other than by salvaging the item), but can be replaced by a new upgrade (destroying the old one).

Crafting recipes[edit]

There are many individual jewel recipes. Broken out by base material, their recipes fit the following general forms:

Discoverable jewels[edit]

These jewels can be unlocked through discovery as the required difficulty level is met.
