I'm nowhere near an experienced player, but i think that sharing my experiences with crafting could be useful to someone. I read some guides, but i made mistakes even on my best rings, and i prefer to test myself results, because most guides refere to some patches ago.

These rings refere all to the usual composition:

9 uncommon power rings -> 3 rare power rings -> 1 epic power ring, every ring socketed with red gemstones

9 uncommon attack speed rings -> 3 rare attack speed rings -> 1 epic attack speed ring, every ring socketed with blue gemstones

6 uncommon crit dmg rings without gemstones -> 2 rare crit dmg rings socketed with yellow gems

+

3 uncommon crit rating rings socketed with yellow gemstones -> 1 rare crit rating ring sockete with yellow gemstones

= 1 epic crit dmg/ crit rat ring

(the final epic rings can be socketed with red, blue or even yellow gemstones depending on your needs, but red ones on everyone are recommended)

The first ring i tried to craft with gems is this one. I've made a big mistake here: i crafted green jewels with radiant gemstones, rare jewels with trillion gemstones and epic jewels with brilliant gemstones. Guides suggest to use higher tiers gemstones in the first steps. BTW this is the result

Total cost: 3 brilliant + 9 trillion +21 radiant gemstones= 8 brilliant +3 radiant gemstones

despite my mistakes this ring is really cheap, and gives about 5% less dmg in rispect the best ring i crafted. Casual players could find useful even this kind or rings, but the next jewel costs just slighty more and is better

The second jewel i tried crafting i used just trillion gemstones in every steps, this is the result:

Total cost: 33 trillion gemstones= 11 brilliant gemstones

As you can see, i haven't used the maximum values on crit dmg in all my jewels, i recommend to spend a lot of time and money on crafting 60% crit dmg pieces and 59.9% crit dmg pieces because results are not negligible and you later in the game will have a lot of unused gold.

To craft my third ring i spent a lot of time grinding, this is the most expensive ring you can craft: i used brilliant gemstones in every step

Total cost: 33 brilliant gemstones

I messed up a little with the selection of green rings (crit dmg rings in particular), but i think that this as close to perfect as i need

Incidentaly, crafting the previous ring, i had enough materials to craft a decent tank ring, which could be useful for other builds:

Total cost: 33 brilliant gemstones

Conclusion: using trillion gemstones is a lot cheaper and gives you 4-5% dmg less for every ring (with my stats, obviously these values could change a lot depending on builds and CL). It could be useful for casual players, but if you want to be competitive a set of 2 rings + 1 amulet crafted with trillion could drop your dmg 15% in respect to perfect ones.
