Gemology
Sims 4 Crystal Creations Promo 1
A Sim crafting jewelry at a Gemology Table

Skill TS4 GemologyGemology is a skill introduced in The Sims 4: Crystal Creations Stuff. Leveling up the skill allows Sims to craft different sets of custom jewelry to wear, show off to other Sims, and craft custom engagement rings, as well as, cut crystals into gemstones at the Gemology Table. Gemology allows the use of all 27 crystals and 25 metals available.

Description[]

While every Sim may appreciate a shiny gem, those with Gemology skill learn to create their own gem-based creations for wearing, gifting, or turning a little profit.
Gemology is built primarily by crafting on the Gemology Table, supplemented by finding metals and crystals. Increasing this skill will unlock new jewelry designs and gemstone cuts, as well as increase the number of metals and crystals a Sim finds!

TS4 Design Jewelry

When a Sim uses the Gemology table, players can choose Designs, select Metals, and Crystals to craft a custom jewelry item to be used by Sims. Sims can use these custom jewelry such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings to share with other Sims. Sims are also able to cut crystals into gemstones as a fancy gift.

Gathering crystals is not necessary to start creating. However, crafting a piece of jewelry or cutting a gemstone is partially free of charge if the materials are owned. Otherwise, Sims will be automatically charged. The only exception to this are rare Crystals which need to be found in nature or ordered online. Nonetheless, Sims will still be charged for the design.

Jewelry[]

There are currently 12 matching sets of each jewelry type; necklaces, earrings, rings, and bracelets.

List of Jewelry[]


Gemstone Cuts[]

Using the gemology table, Sims can cut crystals into gemstones. The effects are identical between jewelry and gemstone cuts; while jewelry applies effects to the sim currently wearing the pieces, cuts apply the same effects to all sims in an area around them. Uniquely, the Seed-Shaped Gemstone is quite literally a seed; it can be planted into the ground (or a planter), and after a while, it will grow into a crystalline tree that sprouts gemstones to be collected.

There are 11 cuts to be made:

Spire-Shaped Gemstone Spire-Shaped Gemstone Your own mini crystal tower that an exarch would be proud of. 1 §45

Crystal Energy[]

Mystical Moonlight Crystal Grid
Mystical Moonlight Crystal Grid
The power of the moon is a phenomenon still shrouded in mystery to this day; its influence on the human world is undeniable. Harness this power yourself by charging your very own crafted jewelry or gemstones and experimenting with its mystical effects. But beware, there could be undesirable results...
Game The Sims 4: Crystal Creations Stuff
Buyable 50
Type Outdoor Activity
Size 1x1
Uses Charges up to 7 gemstones or jewelry pieces while outside between 7pm to 7am

Players can buy the Mystical Moonlight Crystal Grid in in the Outdoor Activities section build mode. When the crystal grid is placed outside and has up to 7 gemstones or jewelry pieces, during the hours of 7pm to 7am the gemstones and jewelry pieces will be charged with moonlight energy bestowing with active magical effects depending on the crystal they were crafted with.[1]

The moon's phases dictate how long the charging will take from new moons taking the full 12 hours to charge items to full moons taking only 3 hours to charge all items. Once charged, the energy stays active for 2 days, with jewelry effects only active when being worn and gemstones only active when Sims are nearby them.
