The Jeweler — Why He’s Important

  • The Jeweler joins your caravan in Act 2, during the quest “Blood and Sand.” After he joins the Caravan, he will follow you to each following act.
  • The Jeweler may seem not as important as the Blacksmith, but his ability to create powerful gems that can be slotted into your weapons and armor makes him invaluable in your next difficulty level playthroughs of Diablo 3.
  • The Jeweler can combine weak gems into better quality gems. He combines three of the same type of gems into a better quality gem, with an additional special effect.
  • Shen can also unslot your gems from weapons, allowing you to slot them into another weapon, or letting you slot different gems into your unslotted weapon. This service costs some gold, but it’s worth it to improve weapons over time with better gems.
  • Jeweler Designs

    1. Designs from the Jeweler are unlocked as you improve his level, discussed below.
    2. Very few new Jeweler Designs can be found on Inferno difficulty.

    Jeweler Leveling

    1. Leveling the Jeweler works in a similar manner to leveling your Blacksmith. Each level requires a payment in gold or Jewelcrafting Page/Tomes.
    2. The first level of the Jeweler is free, you’ll be able to upgrade Shen to level 3 on a normal playthrough.
    3. To upgrade Shen to levels 4-10, you’ll need items called Pages/Tomes of Jewelcrafting. These items can only be found as loot in the game world.
    4. Pages of Jewelcrafting can be found in Nightmare difficulty, while Tomes of Jewelcrafting can be found in Hell difficulty.
    5. A final type of special item can be found only in Inferno difficulty — Tomes of Secrets. These are used solely for crafting special found gem designs that can only be made in Inferno difficulty.
