Jeweler is unusual among the GW2 crafting professions in two ways. First, if you have been playing for a while, you have probably accumulated all the materials you need to level up Jeweler.
Second, Jeweler is the most lucrative crafting profession to level. By which I mean, you can break even or make a slight profit by selling most Jeweler products. Most crafting disciplines are a money sink until you get to the maximum level.
These two factors make Jeweler a good choice if you have been playing for a while, and you're mainly looking for a crafting discipline to use for leveling your character.
Jeweler is also, along with Chef, one of only two crafting disciplines which is useful for all professions. But unlike Chef, Jeweler can be used to create some of the Gifts you need to craft a Legendary: Gift of Ice, Gift of Music, Shark Statue, Unicorn Statue, and Vial of Quicksilver.
No Ascended Jewelry Crafting
Unlike the weapons and armor crafting disciplines, you can't use Jeweler to create Ascended items. Ascended trinkets can only be bought from vendors, earned from achievements, or received as random drops. Ascended trinkets cannot be crafted.
After you max out Jeweler at level 400, there are a few things you can craft and sell for gold. These include the Azurite Orichalcum, Ruby Orichalcum, Emerald Orichalcum, Passiflora Orichalcum, and Snowflake Orichalcum trinkets. Note that profit margins are slim, so if you don't already have the materials to create these on hand, it's usually not worth buying the materials on the Trading Post to craft and sell the item.
Bonus Crafting XP
If you're leveling up crafting in order to level your character, maximize your progress by using a Crafting Booster.
If you belong to a guild with a developed Guild Hall, you can also get the Guild Crafting boost from the Tavern Proprietor. (Note: Only available to players who have the Heart of Thorns expansion.)
