Professions skills are split between expansions now, you'll have a separate skill bar for each expansion. This guide is for the "Vanilla" Jewelcrafting skill in the current retail version of World of Warcraft. I have a separate guide for Bruning Crusade Classic, so if you are looking for that, visit my Classic TBC Jewelcrafting leveling guide.
I recommend using Zygor's 1-60 Leveling Guide if you are still leveling your character or you just started a new alt. The guide is in a small window on your main screen in-game. All the detail that you need to complete the quests are included. You’ll never have to switch back to a website, or even the in-game main map to see where you have to go or what’s next. And if you are low on gold, I recommend trying this Gold Making Guide, it can help you to make a lot of gold.
Approximate Materials Required:
Often the materials are based on a case that you will gain one skill point each craft. This won't happen, so you will have to buy a few extra materials while you are leveling your Jewelcrafting.

Playing Burning Crusade Classic?
Visit my TBC Classic Jewelcrafting leveling guide 1-375 if you are looking for the TBC Classic guide. Profession skills are split between expansions in the latest World of Warcraft expansion, you'll have a separate skill bar for each expansion, and you can level them separately. This guide is for the "Vanilla" Jewelcrafting skill in Shadowlands.
1 - 110
First, visit any trainer in the main cities of old Azeroth - just ask a guard, and learn Jewelcrafting.
Draenei characters have +10 Jewelcrafting skill because of their passive [Gemcutting]. An extra 10 Jewelcrafting skill means recipes stay orange for 10 more points, so you can save a lot of gold by doing lower level recipes for 10 more points.
You also have to buy a [Jeweler's Kit] from the Jewelcrafting Supplies vendor near your trainer or General/Trade Goods vendors.
30 x [Delicate Copper Wire] - 60 Copper Bar
Save these, you will need them later.
20 x [Tigerseye Band] - 20 Tigerseye, 20 Delicate Copper Wire
You can make 20 x [Malachite Pendant] too.
50 x [Bronze Setting] - 100 Bronze Bar
Save these, you will need them later.
20 x [Simple Pearl Ring] - 20 Small Lustrous Pearl, 20 Bronze Setting, 40 Copper Bar
20 x [Gloom Band] - 20 Bronze Setting, 40 Shadowgem, 40 Delicate Copper Wire
Make [Ring of Silver Might] if Silver Bar is cheap on your server.
10 x [Ring of Twilight Shadows] - 20 Shadowgem, 20 Bronze Bar
You can also continue to make [Ring of Silver Might]
110 - 180
10 x [Heavy Stone Statue] - 80 Heavy Stone
If Heavy Stone is cheap (usually it's not) make this one up to 130 if you want to.
30 x [Pendant of the Agate Shield] - 30 Moss Agate, 30 Bronze Settings
If you prospect your own Ores, usually you will get a lot of [Lesser Moonstone] too, but even if you don't prospect the Ores, sometimes 2 Lesser Moonstone is cheaper than one Moss Agate. So get the recipe [Design: Amulet of the Moon] and use up all your Lesser Moonstone. This recipe turns yellow at 140, you might need to make more than 30 of these.
The design is sold by these NPCs.
45 x [Mithril Filigree] - 90 Mithril Bar
Save these, you will need 45 of them later.
180 - 250
8 x [Solid Stone Statue] - 80 Solid Stone
15 x [Engraved Truesilver Ring] - 15 Truesilver Bar, 30 Mithril Filigree
25 x [Citrine Ring of Rapid Healing] - 25 Citrine, 50 Mithril Bar
The recipe will go yellow at 210, so you might need to get more Citrine if you are unlucky. If you are lucky you will only need 20.
If Citrine is too expensive, you can continue to make [Engraved Truesilver Ring] up to around 210 or maybe more. But you will also need a bit more Mithril Filigree then.
5 x [Aquamarine Pendant of the Warrior] - 5 Aquamarine, 15 Mithril Filigree
50 x [Thorium Setting] - 50 Thorium Bar
Stop making these at 250 and only make more if you need them, but you will need around 50.
250 - 300
10 x [Ruby Pendant of Fire] - 10 Star Ruby, 10 Thorium Setting
20 x [Simple Opal Ring] - 20 Large Opal, 20 Thorium Setting
If you reach 265 and you have a lot of Azerothian Diamond or if it's cheap, you can start to craft [Diamond Focus Ring]. But keep in mind that you will need 7 Azerothian Diamond for the next step.
If Large Opal is too expensive on your realm, like it costs twice as much as one Star Ruby, then you should continue to make [Ruby Pendant of Fire] up to 275. Or if you Prospected your own Ores, you will have a lot of Star Ruby and Azerothian Diamond left, use all of them.
7 x [Diamond Focus Ring] - 7 Azerothian Diamond, 7 Thorium Setting
3 x [Sapphire Pendant of Winter Night] - 3 Blue Sapphire, 3 Essence of Undeath, 3 Thorium Setting
If you don't have Essence of Undeath you can just make [Glowing Thorium Band] up to 290.
10 x [Emerald Lion Ring] - 20 Huge Emerald, 10 Thorium Setting
Make a few [Glowing Thorium Band] if you have some Azerothian Diamonds left.
I hope you liked this Jewelcrafting leveling guide, congratulations on reaching 300!
