Next, left click on the item you wish to socket. If the gem is not suitable for the item, you will get an error message. Embedding gems onto equipment is FREE.
Note that you can also socket Gems at the Gem Desk with a socketable item already on the Gem Desk by right clicking a gem in your inventory or simply dragging a gem to an open slot on the Gem Desk. You will need to confirm socketing by clicking the Lock icon beneath the gem.
