Jewellery Creation

Making jewellery can be a fun tradeskill designed to make some more worth out of the basic metals and gems that you will collect on your travels

Here are a list of items you will need for the tradeskill

Metal
Loot from various Rubi-Ka mobs
Gem
Loot from various Rubi-Ka mobs
Jensen Gem Cutter
Tools for Electrical and Mechanical Engineering terminal
Precious Metal Reclaimer
Tools for Electrical and Mechanical Engineering terminal
Personal Furnace
Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Components terminal
Wire Drawing Machine
Tools for Electrical and Mechanical Engineering terminal
Generic Ring Template
Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Components terminal

To start you will need metal, it will be found as either ingots or as objects such as bracers and rings that will be refined into ingots. These can be looted from Rubi-Ka mobs and mission chests in various forms, you will have most likely picked up some already. Be aware that only Rubi-Ka ingots will work, shadowlands ingots are no good

The objects listed below are some of the items that can be refined into ingots, they come in three different types, silver, gold and the most expensive platinum. Platinum can only be found in it's ingot form, no object known can be refined into it

Silver
Gold
Engagement Ring
Marriage Ring
Flower Ring
Golden Ring
Pink Ring
Golden Bracer
Ring of Zern
Bracelet of Ka
OT Ring
Golden Sphere
Toe-ring
Silver Nugget

The next main item required is a gem, most gems found on looted from rubi-ka mobs and mission chests will be fine for this. Be careful as not all gems are worth the same amounts, in fact some, such as the Rubi-Ka Ruby are so common that they are nearly worthless. Another point to note is that both quality 190+ Soul Fragments and quality 200 Cold Stones are used in other tradeskill processes, and are worth much more to be sold to someone who needs them for that purpose.
Listed below are a selection of the gems that can be used

Common
Rare
Rubi-Ka Ruby
Silver Onyx
Spring Crystal
Soul Fragment
Blue Pearl by Conner
Cold Stone
Dull Pearl of Silver
Ember

Silver Pearl

Crystal Sphere
Gold 2 Sphere
Hot Stone

Ember Sphere
Pearl of Rubi-Ka
Ruby

Now we need to purchase the three tools required, all of which can be found inside your nearest general store in the Tools for Electrical and Mechanical Engineering terminal
They are reusable so you will only need to purchase one for all your jewellery making, the Jensen Gem Cutter and Precious Metal Reclaimer both come at a standard quality of 10. The Wire Drawing Machine comes at various qualities and it is recommended to get a decent quality so it will be useful with even the highest quality jewellery you may want to make. It is required to be at least 30% the quality of the Liquid Gold

The bases are next, both can be purchased from the Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Components terminal. They will be used up in the process, so you will need one for each piece of jewellery. Both come at a standard quality of 10 and are quite cheap, grab yourself a Personal Furnace and a Generic Ring Template

You are now ready to start refining and processing the rings, start by refining the gems using the Jensen Gem Cutter. This will increase the value by quite a big amount

The gems can be left now until the end, it is time to make the rings for them to sit in. Start by refining the basic jewellery with metal reclaimer, this will make either a small silver or gold ingot. Unless of course you found the ingot in this form to start with

Once you have the ingot there are a few more steps it needs to go through, each requires a little more mechanical engineering to complete. Start by melting it down with a personal furnace

or Platinum Filigree Wire

Now add the basic ring template to your wire to create a plain filigree ring, this step will raise the quality slightly if you have enough mech. engineering

or Platinum Filigree Ring

Only the final step is left now, combine the filigree ring with the perfectly cut gem from earlier, the quality of the ring will decide the final quality

Using platinum rings along with the rarest gems, listed above, will bring in a better price. Combine this with the fact that the gem used can be increased in quality by inserting it in a higher quality ring and you can start to make rings that are worth a very good price when sold.
Don't forget that when selling, you will get a higher value by raising your computer literacy and by using certain shops.

Listed below is an example showing amounts as they stand at this time, obviously these could change at any time. The tradeskiller used had a mechanical engineering of 1000, computer literacy of 1057 and was using an Omni map terminal
As you will see, the worth of the basic items can be improved considerably
