Jeweler Leveling Guide 1-25

Below is what you need to start leveling. Mind you this is the one of the hardest professions because there are not always enough recipes to discover. The description below lets you know in detail what to get and discover.
1. Buy the Following Materials

Don’t make the components, just buy them from the trading post! It will take 30X more materials to make them. This is mathematically the most efficient guide. Refer to the Gw2 Crafting Formulas for the math behind the highest crafting experience bonuses.

At this point there are no more recipes to discover so the next, highest bonus according to the Gw2 Crafting Formulas algorithm is to craft all (on items not components).  Amber Copper Ring is nice in bulk; make them using the Craft All Button.  You can also swap out hooks for bands and make Amber Copper Studs in bulk, whatever’s cheapest.

Shoot for one of the above recipes and make about 9 of them. This follows the 99 rule, where if you discover 9 recipes it will take about 9 more “item recipes” to craft using the “craft all button”.

Continue on to the Jeweler Leveling Guide 200 – 400





  1. lvl 125-150 the mats dont discover anything

    • btw iam lvl 24 dont know if that has anything to do with it

      • Thank you for showing us this error, we have corrected it. For these recipes it requires the Intricate Jewel version and not the nugget version. For example, Intricate Amethyst Jewel is the correct one for this level, not the Amethyst Nugget.

        Also, crafting is separate from your character level so at level 24 you can still discover and create crafting level 400 items, you just might not be able to use them.

        Your friends,
        pwn and wicked

      • wow that was quick took me ages to figure it out for myself but your guide is still very well done best ive come across keep up the good work

    • at lvl 125-150 i needed to make silver filigree to make intricate jewels to lvl up to 150

  2. That last stretch is unbelievably expensive. T_T

    • We noticed that yesterday some of the prices went really high in the last few stages. Hopefully it will settle down or we all will have to go farm some mats.

  3. Wow., I see this sight a month ago finally hit level 400 jewelry
    Before I seen this was long and painful. After reading your info on crafting
    I know I can easily level my craft for my main toon thanks to guide lines.

  4. nice guide – was useful and fast

  5. A + the only thing i would recommend is putting up how much ore it would take to make the ingots. I had to calculate the exact amount of ore it would need to make all the refinements but other than that, it was perfect/

  6. Thank you so much, I have been struggling with this :D

  7. Fantastic Guide, thanks so much for this!

  8. Thanks a bunch for these guides, great time-saver. A couple of notes:

    1. You’ve got a duplicated section (300-325).
    2. The guides would be even better if there was a total summation somewhere of all mats required.

    Thanks again!

  9. Every time I buy the needed materials, then make the discoveries, I always fall short by quite a few levels. Did you do this on an overflow server?

    • Overflow or normal it is hit or miss. Honestly, it really depends on a few factors listed in the Gw2 Crafting Algorithms page. Here you can see it has more to do with luck than anything. So to prevent from getting extra materials we show you the “lesser end” of what you need. Have no fear, if luck is not on your side the averages will catch up to you :) If you fall short and there is nothing else to discover craft in bulk because that is here the next highest exp bonuses are… Good luck my friend

  10. excellent very helpful and just what i was looking for keep up the good work and ill be passing this site on to all friends and anyone interested in leveling there professions! Thanks =]

  11. So if my jeweler is at level 390 and I have discovered all 7 rings/earrings/amulets (ruby, coral, opal, emerald, sapphire, chrysocola, beryl) then I have no choice but to try on another toon or use ectoplasm right?

    Secondly, does that mean I screwed up somewhere? I did NOT use any guides until I ran into trouble at about level 380. I mean if I messed up and skipped something in the gold/platinum area (for example) I’ll try again on a different character. I do not want to burn my ectos, I’m trying to farm them already.

  12. Am I missing something basic? I can’t seem to make
    - Enchanted Rock Pendant
    - Jeweled Broach
    - Iron Band

    At lvl 43 Jewelcrafting

    • It looks as if they removed the 3 recipes from the discovery section and they are sold by vendors now for karma. We updated the description for this section to reflect this. The downside to this is you will be forced to craft in bulk a few items. Well that is not too bad; just check the TP for some cheap items and refer to the recipe list if the malachite, pearls a or tiger’s Eye are expensive.

      Thank you for finding this for all of us.

  13. Jeweler Leveling Guide 375- 400

    It takes 3 Embellished Brilliant Coral Jewel to craft 1 Coral Mithril Amulet

    So now you need 9 to finish a amulet, ring, and earring

  14. Great jewelers guide. The only thing I think could improve it would be to include what level is needed to wear the jewelry being made.

    Thanks so much! Your guide helped make the jewelry crafting process bearable!

  15. Onee very glaring mistake in the 375 to 400 section of this guide, and it’s a horribly expensive one. THREE EACH of the Embellished Brilliant Jewels are required for each piece of jewelry made, therefore you need 12 each of them to make the final jump to 400. Again, the recipes consume 3 EACH of the called for jewels per jewelry piece crafted.

    • It’s not a mistake it clearly states that under the 375-400 line with a frowny face.

      • I believe Steve has a point. There are 12 recipes to be discovered with each recipe requiring 3 jewels a piece. Ultimately that means there should be a total of 36 jewels needed in total(12×3=36). Divide that by 4 (types of jewels) and you have 12 total needed for each group. The explanation is intentionally verbose to hopefully get everyone to see the point.

        • We constantly check the prices w/ this discovery guide and this guide still remains cheap less gold / level) and far more efficient (buying less mats).

  16. Man, I LOVE U! Really thx, did it really in hour (used my xp boost)… Thanks and continue in that good work

    • Any idea how much you spent?

  18. This guide is very nice, but it has a huge flaw. It does not use filigrees. The use of filigrees allows cheaper leveling. Firstly because you can make them. You create 7 filigrees. Then you use the filigrees to discover 7 jewels, one for each pebble/shard/crystal/whatever. These 14 actions alone level you the middle 25 points on each tier !!! And Thirdly, these 7 jewels can be used in the last 25 points of the tier to discover Master Amulets/Rings/Earrings, so you get 7 discoveries free, which means about 15-20 points free in the most expensive 25 points of every Master tier.

    • At the places where filigrees are used (ex. level 50) there are an abundance of recipes to discover. We chose the recipes that take less mats or the ones that generally are the cheapest. You are not incorrect however we ensure that the guide remains strong and up to date. Thank you. We ar also considering making alternative sections that help but for now the recipe list should help.

      • Pedro, you’re right, it does seem to skip using filigrees, however the upgraded components are included in the guide. eg 3 x ruby crystal -> 3 x brilliant ruby jewel when added to filigrees. the prices for a crystal [today] is 2.8s and the jewel (with filigree too!) is only 2.39s. so stone with filigree is cheaper on market. this makes the guide, and response, correct. However, if you do the math, you will find that buying ONE of each crystal first to make into jewels by adding the mithril filigree (which will cost you an extra ~2s per crystal [less at the lower levels] is well worth it as the XP gained for finding the upgraded stones is similar to a whole recipe including stone + setting + band/hook/chain!!! in which case it IS cheaper to use the filigrees seperately, but only once for each type of stone. after that, buying the upgraded stones (with filigrees) is cheaper.

  19. Please could you update this guide telling the buyer to firstly check the prices of ore compared to ingots and items. For example a chain is 8 ore, or 4 ingots. Today a mithril chain costs 2.96s, which is cheaper than buying 8 ore at .45s each or 4 ingots at .89s each. However, a mithril band is 3.08s! buying the 3 ingots to make this would only cost 2.67s, a saving of .41s per band. Using this basic maths when buying each of the components for each stage can save A LOT of money as often the ingots are cheaper than ore or the components. The maths for this could be shown in a simple table with ore and ingots per component.

    • Thank you for the suggestion! We are currently working on alternates for this to counter any increases in costs for mats.
