Jewelry Crafting in Elder Scrolls Online
Jewelry Crafting was added to Elder Scrolls Online as part of the Summerset Chapter in June 2018 and allows players to craft their own jewlery like other weapons and armor.
Note: You must purchase the Summerset Chapter in order to be able to make your own jewelry. If you don’t own ESO: Summerset you can still harvest resource nodes in the wild or acquire items with the new jewelry traits but you can’t make use of the resources you harvest to create or improve rings or necklaces. You can, however, still put those items and materials on guild stores or give them to your friends or guildmates to craft with.
Jewelry Crafting Resources
To create your own jewelry in ESO you must first harvest or purchase unique jewelry crafting nodes called Seams and collect the unrefined material called Dust. You can then refine Dust into Ounces to use to make jewelry. Seams appear in the same kinds of places that Blacksmithing nodes appear – in rocky outcroppings, cliff faces, and other stony areas – and they can be found all over Tamriel. Dust gathered from Seams can be harvested by anyone, whether they own Summerset or not, but they can only be refined into Ounces at the Jewelry Crafting Station.
You can collect different types of Dust based on your character level and your Engraver level from the Jewelry Crafting Skill Line.
|Levels 1 to 25||Pewter|
|Levels 26 to 50||Copper|
|Champion Levels 10 to 60||Silver|
|Champion Levels 70 – 140||Electrum|
|Champion Levels 150 to 160||Platinum|
Jewelry Crafting Stations
You can find new Jewelry Crafting Stations located near the other Crafting Stations already found in Tamriel, such as those situated within the cities and crafted set locations. You can also create jewelry as part of an item set with unique bonuses.
At a Jewelry Crafting Station you can create new jewelry, refine jewelry crafting materials, deconstruct jewelry to acquire some of their component materials, upgrade jewelry to improve their power using upgrade materials and research jewelry traits, allowing you to unlock the ability to craft items with specific traits.
You can also purchase Jewelry Crafting Stations for your homes from Master Writ Merchants.
Note: You can’t deconstruct old jewelry from before the Summerset patch.
