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.

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.

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.

Level 1 to 50

First, We’ll be crafting Reinforced Flawed Onyx Amulet and Weak Gemstone Dust to get to level 50. From 1-20, use the following material to craft Flawed Onyx Amulet:

Once at 20, switch over to Crushing Rubys into Weak Gemstone Dust. You’ll need to buy 84 Flawed Rubies and crush them into Weak Gemstone Dust to get to 50.

Level 50 to 250

Next, we will be crafting Reinforced Onyx Amulets and A LOT of them. Crafting this item is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to get to Max level in Jewelcrafting. REMEMBER to salvage your amulets as you craft them. Below is the amount of each item you’ll need to go from level 50 ALL the way to 250
