Spending

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)
