A Gemcutter's Prism (often abbreviated GCP) is a currency item that can be used to improve the quality of a gem. Each Gemcutter's Prism will always raise the quality by 1%.


Gemcutter's Prisms are a rare item that can be obtained from slain enemies or found in an Artisan's Strongbox.

One can sell a gem with 20% quality to any vendor for a Gemcutter's Prism.

One can sell any number of gems whose total quality is at least 40% to any vendor for a Gemcutter's Prism.

Obtaining many Gemcutter's Prisms by vendoring multiple quality gems

Because Gemcutter's Prisms are relatively rare, it is not advised to apply them to gems that have little or no quality. However, selling a Gemcutter's Prism along with a level 20 gem to any vendor will give you a 20% quality, level 1 version of that same gem. Because it is possible to level many gems at once, it is generally considered a cost-efficient method of obtaining 20% quality gems if the player does not have the means to obtain a large number of Gemcutter's Prisms.

Alternatively, players can obtain Gemcutter's Prisms by vendoring a large quantity of gems that have some quality each. (picture on right)
