Gems are crafted stones from the Jewelcrafting profession, typically offering stat bonuses to enhance your gear and balance character stats as a final touch. These gems can be socketed into specific items such as Head, Neck, Wrist, Waist, and Rings.

Even though the presence of sockets on these items is usually random upon their drop, neck pieces can be uniquely modified to have up to three sockets by using three Tiered Medallion Setting . Additionally, a single socket can be added to other eligible items with an Eye of Awakening , which requires three Aspects' Tokens of Merit obtained from the Great Vault.
