Approximate Materials Required for 1-600
IMPORTANT! Do not buy all of these materials at once! Jewelcrafting is really expensive to level, and on most
servers the Auction House is screwed up because of the insanely high prices of low level Gems, Ores and Bars. I
usually have a few tips, and alternative recipes, so you can save some gold.
- 100 Copper Bar
- 20 Tigerseye or 20 Malachite
- 120 Bronze Bar = 60 Copper Bar, 60 Tin Bar
- 60 Shadowgem OR 20 Shadowgem and 20 Small Lustrous Pearl
- 80 Heavy Stone
- 30 Moss Agate or 60 Lesser Moonstone (combination of both can work too)
- 140 Mithril Bar
- 80 Solid Stone
- 25 Citrine
- 15 Truesilver Bar
- 5 Aquamarine
- 50 Thorium Bar
- 10 Star Ruby

- Buy 55 from any of the following gems (Or buy 40 gems and 15 Black Diamond): [Blood Garnet], [Flame Spessarite], [Deep Peridot], [Azure Moonstone], [Shadow Draenite], [Golden Draenite].Don’t buy all of them from one kind because there might be some recipes which you don’t have the reputation for, so you will have to choose other green gems. Just buy them when you get to that part of the Jewelcrafting guide.
- 10 Primal Earth
- 10 Adamantite Bar
Wrath of the Lich King
- Buy around 70 from any of the following gems: [Bloodstone], [Chalcedony], [Dark Jade], [Huge Citrine], [Shadow Crystal], [Sun Crystal].Save 5-8 [Bloodstone], [Chalcedony], [Huge Citrine] or [Sun Crystal]l for when you reach 395.

- 5 Forest Emerald
- 5 Titanium Bar
- 5 Dream Shard
- Buy 45 from any of the following gems: [Carnelian], [Alicite], [Jasper], [Zephyrite].I did not include [Hessonite] and [Nightstone] in the list because you will use them later on.
- 16 [Hessonite]
- 50 [Nightstone]
- Buy 60 from any of the following uncommon gems: [Tiger Opal], [Roguestone], [Alexandrite], [Lapis Lazuli], [Pandarian Garnet], [Sunstone] (you should have at least 5 from each)
- Buy 9 from any of the following rare gems: [River’s Heart], [Sun’s Radiance], [Vermilion Onyx], [Wild Jade] , [Imperial Amethyst], [Primordial Ruby].You will have to buy 9 from the same color.
Levels 1 – 50
First, visit a trainer – just ask a guard, and learn
30 x [DelicateCopper Wire] – 60 Copper BarSave these, you will need them later.

10 x [Ring ofTwilight Shadows] – 20 Shadowgem, 20 Bronze BarYou can also continue to make [Ring of Silver Might]
10 x [HeavyStone Statue] – 80 Heavy StoneIf Heavy Stone is cheap (usually it’s not) make this one up to 130 ifyou want to.
30 x [Pendantof the Agate Shield] – 30 Moss Agate, 30 Bronze SettingsIf you prospect your own Ores, usually youwill get a lot of [Lesser Moonstone] too, but even if you don’t prospect the Ores, sometimes 2 Lesser Moonstone is cheaperthan one Moss Agate. So get the recipe [Design: Amulet of the Moon] and use up all your LesserMoonstone. This recipe turns yellow at 140, you might need to make more than 30 of these.
The design is sold by these NPCs.
Levels 150 – 200

45 x [MithrilFiligree] – 90 Mithril BarSave these, you will need 45 of them later.

If Citrine is expensive, you can continue to make [Engraved Truesilver Ring] up to around 210 or maybe more.
But you will also need a bit more Mithril Filigree then.
The recipe will go yellow at 210, so you might needto get more Citrine if you are unlucky. If you are lucky you will only need 20.
25 x [Citrine Ring of Rapid Healing] – 25 Citrine, 50 Mithril Bar
5 x [AquamarinePendant of the Warrior] – 5 Aquamarine, 15 Mithril Filigree

10 x [RubyPendant of Fire] – 10 Star Ruby, 10 Thorium Setting
If Large Opal is expensive on your realm, like it cost twice as much as one Star Ruby, then
you should continue to make [RubyPendant of Fire] up to 275. Or if you Prospected your own Ores, you will have a lot of Star Ruby and
Azerothian Diamond left, use all of them.
20 x [Simple Opal Ring] – 20 Large Opal, 20 Thorium Setting
If you reach 265 and you have a lot of Azerothian Diamond or if it’s cheap, you can start to craft [Diamond Focus Ring]. Keepin mind that you will need 7 Azerothian Diamond for the next step.

below, or make 1-2 more rings.
10 x [Heavy Adamantite Ring] – 10 Adamantite Bar, 10Mercurial Adamantite
Levels 350 – 425
- 350 – 395
Buy around 55 from any of the following gems. At 375, these recipes will turn to yellow
so you might need to buy more gems.
Cut any gem you want. Seriously, there are like 50 new green gem recipes, I won’t list all of them. Go toyour trainer, learn one and make that recipe around 55 times.
- 395 – 400
Make 5 from any of the following items:5 x [Bloodstone Band] – 5 Bloodstone, 10 CrystallizedEarth
5 x [Crystal Chalcedony Amulet] – 5 Chalcedony, 10 Crystallized Earth
5 x [Crystal Citrine Necklace] – 5 Huge Citrine, 10Crystallized Earth

- 400 – 420
23 x [Stoneguard Band] – 46 Eternal Earthor
23 x [Shadowmight Ring] – 23Eternal Earth, 23 Eternal Shadow
If you have some [Monarch Topaz], [Twilight Opal], [Autumn’s Glow], [Forest Emerald], [Sky Sapphire] or you can buy these for cheaper than the Eternals, go to Wintergrasp and buy thejewelcrafting recipes sold by Stone Guard Mukar (Horde) and Knight Dameron(Alliance). You can only buy these recipes if your faction controls Wintergrasp. One recipe costs 19 honor,which means if you stay here and do a few daily quest while the battle is on, you can buy most of therecipes.
All of these recipes are orange up to 410 and yellow up to 425.
- 420 – 425
5 x [DreamSignet] – 5 Titanium Bar, 5 Dream Shard, 5 Forest EmeraldCheck the previous part if you don’t havematerials for Dream Signet, or you can also try these alternatives below. Choose one you have materials for.(the alternative in the previous part is a lot cheaper.)
Levels 425 – 500
- 425 – 450
Make 25 from any of the new Uncommon Gem Cuts that you get from your trainer. You can
also make [Jasper Ring] if you
can disenchant it.
- 450 – 467
Make around 20 uncommon gems, or you can make 17 [Hessonite Band]
- 467 – 475
8 x [Hessonite Band] – 8 Jeweler’s Setting, 16 HessoniteYou can also make [Carnelian Spikes] if 3 Carnelian is cheaper than 2 Hessonite. You can buy the Jeweler’s Setting from thevendor.
- 475 – 500
25 x [Nightstone Choker] – 25 Jeweler’s Setting, 50 NightstoneMake more Hessonite Band if you have some Hessonite left.
Rare Cataclysm gems are cheap on most realms, so making [The Perforator] between 490-500 seems very goodalternative to rings and necks.
Levels 500 – 600
- 500 – 512
4 x [OrnateBand] – 4 Lapis Lazuli, 4 Tiger Opal, 4 Sunstone
- 512 – 527
5 x [Shadowfire Necklace] – 5 Roguestone, 5 Alexandrite, 5
You can also just continue to make more [Ornate Band].
If your main goal is to just learn every rare gem cuts. Then start making the first gem research [River’s Heart] or [Sun’s Radiance]. You can only make 1 research
a day, but it will give you 3 skill points. You will have to learn like 100 recipes, which means you will reach 600
by making these researches daily.
- 527 – 575
I could list all the recipes you learn at 525, but there is no real need for that. All of
the recipes you learn will stay orange all the way up to 575. You will learn new ones at 530, 535, 545, and so
on. Making necks, rings gets you 3 skill points for 3 uncommon gems. Each gem cut gives 1 skill point. You get
the same skill point to gem ratio either way. I would choose the necks, rings because it is usually easier for
me to sell. You will use 48 gems.
- 575 – 585
You shouldn’t make the necks or the rings because they will no longer grant you 3 skill
point. Make any uncommon gem instead. You will use around 20 gems.
- 585 – 588
Make any gem research like [Primordial Ruby]. It is up to you which one you choose,
but it’s better to choose one that you have materials for because after the research you will learn a new recipe
which you will have to make 6 times. The gem color of the recipe will be the same as the gems you used for the
- 588 – 600
Cut 6 rare gem from the learned recipe.
