Gems are socketable items in Torchlight, most of which are some form of Ember. Socketed items allow players to add gems to items, providing them with additional bonuses such as increased resistance or ability to steal HP on attack. Items can either come pre-socketed, or can randomly have sockets added through the enchanting system.

Gems may be upgraded by Duran the Transmuter, who can combine two gems of the same type and quality into a gem of the next higher level of quality (with the exception of chaos gems, which cannot be transmuted). Gems can also be transmuted with four items of the same quality. Set pieces (purple quality items) may only be transmuted if their icon's color is the same, even if they are all really purple quality. Rings and trinkets may be included in transmuted a gem.

Gems may be removed from sockets by Gorn and Furl, two NPCs in town who can either destroy a piece of equipment to recover gems, or destroy gems to free up sockets in a piece of equipment.

The following is a list of socketable gems.
