I just got an epic helmet that has a meta gem socket. I put in an Eternal Earthsiege Diamond and would like to have the +21 defense rating but I need to have 2 red gems socketed somewhere. I have an Eternal Belt Buckle so that gives me one. Are there any other item enhancements that add a gem socket?Thanks!

the only other way is to be a Blacksmith - they can add a gem socket to your bracer and I think boots or glove. But you have to be a BS.You can also get a piece of gear that'll work - Jewelcrafters make several rings and necks with sockets that are pretty cheap.

When socketing for a meta gem, keep in mind that blended gems count as both of their colors.If my Meta gem requires, for example, 2 red, 2 yellow, and 2 blue, but I have three slots, I can use one purple gem (which counts as BOTH a blue and a red), one green gem (which counts as BOTH a blue and a yellow) and one orange gem (which counts as BOTH one red and one yellow). Prismatic gems count as all three primary colors.It may be worth your while to lose a few attack power or whatever to activate the metagem with a blended gem, if the reason you're looking for more gem slots is that you've already filled your others and want the slot bonuses.
