This WoW Jewelcrafting 1 - 525 guide will show you how to raise your Jewelcrafting skill from 1 - 525 in the quickest and most cost effective way. This guide is updated for the Cataclysm expansion, patch 4.3
There are two ways to go about raising your skill level; farm the items / materials yourself which takes longer but is extremely cheap OR purchase them off the auction house.
Mining goes well with Jewelcrafting as you can prospect the ores to pick up extra gems.
If you don't have any or only some of the above, don't worry you can still carry on, it will just take you longer to get to 525.
Quickly navigate to the skill level you're at:
