Gems found in the Shadowlands, either as mob loot or from chests, can be used in tradeskills just like Rubi-Ka gems. Unlike Rubi-ka rings though, they can actually lose value as they get upgraded, since their base value and value after tradeskilling is calculated differently. However, rings with these gems give buffs and what's maybe even more important, they have no requirement to wear. Even players without the Shadowlands expansion can use them. This makes them much more valuable to players.

Before we start with the info on how rings are created, let's look at how the buffs from the items increase with tradeskilling. Note that although the rings go up to QL 400 in the item database, we'll use QL 250 items, which is the highest QL you can actually make:

To start, you'll need the following items:

You can get the Jensen Gem Cutter, the Wire Drawing Machine and Generic Ring Template from Electrical and Mechanical Engineering terminals in shops. Liquid metal are made from ingots; for more details check this guide.

The first step is to cut the gem. For that we need the Jensen Gem Cutter.

  +    =  
This process takes 5x in Mechanical Engineering and 1.9x in Agility, based on the QL of the gem.

Next we need to set a proper ring template. For that we take Liquid metal (check our Small Ingot Processing guide to see how we get that) and use the Wire Drawing Machine on it. We'll need 4.5x for Silver, 4.8x for Gold and 5.5x for Platinum in Mechanical Engineering Skill based on the QL of the gem. Wire Drawing Machine must be at least 30% of the QL of the Ingot.

Now we need to get our Generic Ring Template and combine it with the Platinum Filigree Wire. We'll need 4.1x in Mechanical Engineering and 1.5x in Agility Skills for Silver, 4.8x in Mechanical Engineering and 1.65x in Agility Skills for Gold, 5.5x in Mechanical Engineering and 1.8x in Agility Skills for Platinum.

All that is left is to apply the gem to the Ring. Since it's the ring that sets the final QL, the gem must be within QL 80% of it (85% for platinum). We'll need 4.65x in Mechanical Engineering and 1.72x in Agility Skills for Silver, 4.72x in Mechanical Engineering and 1.77x in Agility Skills for Gold and 5.5x in Mechanical Engineering and 1.93x in Agility Skills for this process.

Applying an uncut gem takes much less tradeskills, but since cutting gems needs about the same amount of skills as applying them to rings, you shouldn't have any problem one way or the other. So what gems are out there and what do they bring? Mods shown are for QL 250 Platinum Filigree Ring set with a Perfectly Cut gem:
