Why should you choose Jewelcrafting as your profession?

Being a Jewelcrafter involves transforming raw gemstones into valuable gems that can be added to your gear to enhance your stats. With the Prospecting skill, you can extract Red, Blue, Yellow, Purple, Orange, Green, and Meta gems from ore. Additionally, you can craft a variety of high-quality and low-level rings and amulets, which are often tough to obtain while leveling up and can be sold at the Auction House for a good profit.

Also, Jewelcrafting lets you use unique gems exclusive to Jewelcrafters. These gems are much more potent than any other ones, boosting your stats. However, you can only have three of them equipped at a time:

What is the best combo with Jewelcrafting in WoW

Combining Mining with Jewelcrafting is awesome because it gives you the raw materials you need for Jewelcrafting through Prospecting, which breaks down ore into gems. This way, you can save gold because you won’t have to buy ore or gems from vendors or at the Auction House. Crafting items at higher skill levels can get pretty expensive due to the large amount of materials required, but Mining can really help you save a good amount of gold.

Cataclysm Classic Jewelcrafting guide: Leveling

And now, it’s time for the main dish. Below, you will discover a comprehensive Cataclysm Classic Jewelcrafting guide that will let you advance through as many levels with the least materials needed as possible.

Draenei characters receive a +5 boost to their Jewelcrafting skill due to their passive ability, Gemcutting. This additional 5 points means that Jewelcrafting recipes remain at the orange difficulty level for 5 extra skill points, allowing you to save a significant amount of gold by crafting lower-level recipes for an additional 10 skill points.

Apprentice Jewelcrafting 

Purchase a Jeweler’s Kit from the Jewelcrafting Supplies vendor located near your trainer or from General or Trade Goods vendors.

Once you have reached level 10, visit your Jewelcrafting trainer and learn Journeyman Jewelcrafting.

Expert Jewelcrafting

Once you have reached level 20, visit your Jewelcrafting trainer and learn Expert Jewelcrafting.

Artisan Jewelcrafting

Once you have reached level 35, visit your Jewelcrafting trainer and learn Artisan Jewelcrafting.

Cataclysm Classic Jewelcrafting

Reaching level 75, seek out your trainers and follow this guide to reach the maximum Cataclysm Classic Jewelcrafting level:

From this point, most recipes will need to be purchased from a vendor. To buy any of these recipes, you must complete the Jewelcrafting daily quests to earn Illustrious Jewelcrafter’s Tokens. Horde players can find Marith Lazuria in Orgrimmar, while Alliance players can find Isabel Jones in Stormwind. These NPCs initiate the daily quests and sell the recipes.

Between skill levels 495 and 500, you can create a few more Nightstone Chokers. Once you reach skill level 500, you can start making Fire Prism. Although Fire Prism has a 20-hour cooldown, it can contain Chimera’s Eye, so be sure to make one every day.

In summary, you can either craft Nightstone Chokers between skill levels 495-500 or complete the daily quests for four days to buy a meta gem recipe and use that to reach skill level 520.

Additionally, you can craft any of the following items between skill levels 510-520:
