New World Jewelcrafting Guide


The Jewelcrafting Trade Skill in New World allows players to craft rings, amulets, earrings, and gemstone dust. We will cover all this and more in our New World Jewelcrafting Guide.

Jewelcrafting in New World

To get started with Jewelcrafting you will need to gather resources to craft, mostly gems and precious metal. Once the resources have been obtained you will be using the Outfitting Station (Spool of Thread icon on map) to craft. Walk up to the crafting station and press your default to interact button, “E”, to open the crafting window.

When you are at the crafting station and have the resources, you will want to open the crafting menu and select what you want to craft. Once you’ve selected the item to craft, you can click the blue CRAFT button to craft the item. If you wish to craft more than one you can move the slider above it and select how many you wish to bulk craft. If you are unable to craft the item you want, you will see red text indicating that you do not have enough of the required materials to craft the item and it will say CAN’T CRAFT on the bottom right. 

When crafting any jewelry at the Outfitting Station you are awarded with Jewelcrafting experience. The amount of experience for crafting an item can be found under the crafting button on the crafting screen. The jewelcrafting level cap is 200. Once your level 200, you can start earning aptitude levels. For more information about that please check out the aptitude guide.

When crafting an item Tier 2 or higher, the first item in the craft must match the same tier as the item you are crafting. For example, a Brilliant Ruby Amulet (seen below) is a Tier 4 item so it requires a Tier 4 Gem, Cut Brilliant Ruby, to craft it as the primary material. The secondary materials are not restricted to the tier requirement making it so you may use lesser or greater tiered materials in the craft. (See our Crafting & Yield Chances guide to see how it affects Gear Score)

Leveling Jewelcrafting

Information in this section is a recommended way to level your Jewelcrafting. It’s expected that you will diverge from it depending on material availability, refining proc chances, and market price values. Chances are you will diverge based on the information provided in the Fused Gems section below. 

Proc chances are not taken into consideration for the refining process as it is not the only method of obtaining the materials to craft and the proc chance depends on level & resources used. Some players may want to spend gold to buy all/some of the materials from the trade stations.

First Craft Bonus

Once a day you get a “First Craft” double XP bonus for each unique item you craft. Be sure to utilize this when possible as you level Jewelcrafting! For Instance, make sure to craft a necklace with multiple types of gems as you start the day leveling, THEN, switch to the cheapest gem possible. You will still need to be aware of the cost of the gem and make sure the gems aren’t double the price of the cheapest gem possible.

Don’t Fuse Gems

When fusing Gems it will increase the tier for the gem fused. By doing so you lose out on the Jewelcrafting experience. It’s only worth fusing gems if you are trying to get Tier 5 Gems for rolling 600 GS jewelry. For example, T2 Gems when crafted are worth 48 experience each and T3 gems are worth 168 each. To fuse into a T3 gem you will need 4 gems which is worth 192 experiences over the 168, thus losing out on 24 experiences for fusing. On top of this, you have to use additional elemental materials (Motes, essences, etc). 

Only Silver

Since the secondary materials can be all silver, it will be your ticket to leveling jewelry. Gold and Platinum both require flux and excess mining that doesn’t give much extra experience when crafting them as Trinket Components. Once you are 200 you will be using Asmodeum for 600 GS rolls. Northern Everfall has a great spot for Silver. There are also some Ironwood/Starmetal nodes nearby if you are waiting on respawns. 

Salvaging Jewelry

Salvaging for Jewelry is a bit different than other items. You have a small chance of getting the same-tier gem back and a high chance of getting a lower-tier gem back. It is only 1 tier lower than before if it is not the same tier salvaged. For example, salvaging an item that used a Tier 5 gem you will likely get the Tier 4 version of that gem back. 

Using Scraps to Level

You can utilize scraps from a perfect salvage to quickly level any applicable trade skill. This is a great way to obtain a boost to your trade skill experience. To learn all about perfect salvages and how to use scraps you can check out our Perfect Salvage Guide.
