Jewelcrafting speed grinding with Mining or Auction House

Jewelcrafting is one of the most profitable professions for Dragonflight, but it is also expensive, either financially or with a time-investment, to quickly level. Players have two options for grinding through Jewelcrafting: either using the Auction House to purchase all necessary materials or mining all of the necessary gems yourself. If opting to use the Auction House to speed through the levels, expect a massive gold sink.

Players can instead opt to mine their own gems, using the Mining Process specialization for an increased gem drop chance, but should be forewarned that this will take an immeasurable amount of time to cap Jewelcrafting. The benefit, however, is that the additional ore can go to a blacksmith alt or be sold on the Auction House, and the Jewelcrafter then has a means to supplement their own crafting in late-game. Regardless of which you choose, players will want to focus on specific crafts.

What to craft to quickly level Jewelcrafting in Dragonflight

There are a specific number of crafts, of specific items, which is the cheapest and fastest means of leveling Jewelcrafting. This formula has already been solved, thankfully, but that doesn’t mean it’s cheap.
