Jewelcraft is the art associated with making all kinds of wonderful wares. Powerful rings, earrings, necklaces, wrists and veils all crafted by the artisans practicing this skill. Jewelcraft is not limited to enchanters, but if you're not an enchanter, being friendly with one will really come in handy.
Jewelcraft has also changed over the years and newer more powerful systems that combine rings with different cut gems has evolved for all to partake.
- You can still combine bars and gems to make some items, though ones with stats are only valid on TLP servers
- You can also make matching cut gems and settings that are combined into the final item (started in Prophecy of Ro)
- You can also craft settings into which you can insert gems you've cut into different shapes (started in Secrets of Paydwer)
- The most recent incarnation of jewelcraft requires tradeskillers to craft items that are effectively containers that can be traded to other players, but in order to turn the container into a final, wearable piece, the player must obtain a no trade item from an expansion relevant named to place into the item and combine to empower it (started in TBM)
You'll find our latest guide for learning the art of Jewelcraft below. Enjoy!
The first thing you need to do is acquire a Jewelry Kit which is the container in which this tradeskill is practiced. There are several types of Jewelry Kits. These are portable and kept in your inventory. There are also stationary containers that can be used to make combines. There are also some other tools that you'll eventually need to make some combines, especially if you're trying to learn enough recipes to achieve 350.
NOTE: The Setting Tools and the Cut Tools can be combined in a Jewelry Kit by themselves to "turn them into" another item. For example, if you put a Solo Setting Tool in a Jeweler's Kit and combine, it will turn into a Duo Setting Tool. If you place the Duo Setting Tool into the kit and combine, it will turn into a Trio Setting Tool. If you place the Trio Setting Tool into the kit and combine it will turn into a Square Cut Tool, etc. You only need to purchase one and you can evolve it into the other items if you're short on space.
Once you have your Jeweler's Kit, make your way over to Crescent Reach and seek out Jeweler Chuma on the second floor of the main building and complete the Freebie Tasks he offers. If you prefer, there are also Freebie quest versions for Jewelcraft offer in Abysmal Sea.
If you're new to tradeskilling and aren't familiar with Tradeskill Modifiers, you can find many questions answered in this FAQ:
Now head over to West Freeport and pay a visit to Event Coordinator Baublie Diggs and get the Beginner Jewelcraft Test. This will give you the Beginner Jewelcraft Trophy, a skill modifier that will evolve to higher modifications as your skill increases.
- Always get your trophy once your skill is 54. It will have the easiest items to make/ingredients to find.
- You must equip your trophy to evolve it.
- Your trophy will not evolve if you're attempting/making recipes that are more than 100 points away from your current skill level until you reach 250.
- Your trophy will "catch up" quickly if you reach the next level before your trophy evolves.
- Only successful combines will evolve your trophy.
- General Information on Prophecy of Ro Trophy Quests
Alternatively you can acquire a Geerlok Gem Setter from a tinkerer. That will add 5% to your base skill to help with successes. You must equip it in order to apply the boost to your base skill. The modifiers from the Trophy and the Geerlok do not stack. You will get the highest benefit between the two equipped items. Once you have evolved your trophy to Journeyman level, you no longer need the Geerlok.
Alternate Advancement Points
If you have already advanced one of your 7 standard tradeskills past 200, you will need to purchase one level of New Tanaan Crafting Master in order to raise your jewelcraft skill higher than 200.

Skilling Up 55 - 300
How you decide to skill up from 55 to 300 will depend heavily on your tradeskilling style. Do you like to follow the path of those who have gone before you and work on just a few recipes? Do you like to search through the Quick Trivial List yourself?
Choose your own adventure!
A couple things to remember:
- As with all of the tradeskills, raising your skill from 55 to 300 involves creating recipes that are above your current, unmodified trivial.
- You can make the same recipe until you run out of ingredients or you receive the "You can no longer advance your skill...." message.
- You can raise your skills on both successes and failures, but only successes will evolve the Tradeskill Trophy obtained from Baublie Diggs in West Freeport.
- Your trophy will not evolve at all if what you're trying to make is more than 100 points above your current unmodified skill (until your base skill is 250, then all recipes are counted as 350 for trophy evolution purposes).
Skilling Up 301 - 350
If you are new to raising a tradeskill from 301 to 350, check out the article below for the basics:
There are currently 1,499 Jewelcraft recipes that count towards 350 mastery and you must learn 1,279 of those recipes to achieve 350.
