A Gemcutter's Prism (often abbreviated GCP) is a currency item that can be used to improve the quality of a gem. Each Gemcutter's Prism will always raise the quality by 1%.

Obtaining

Gemcutter's Prisms are a rare item that can be obtained from slain enemies or found in an Artisan's Strongbox.

One can sell a gem with 20% quality to any vendor for a Gemcutter's Prism.

One can sell any number of gems whose total quality is at least 40% to any vendor for a Gemcutter's Prism.

Spending

Because Gemcutter's Prisms are relatively rare, it is not advised to apply them to gems that have little or no quality. However, selling a Gemcutter's Prism along with a level 20 gem to any vendor will give you a 20% quality, level 1 version of that same gem. Because it is possible to level many gems at once, it is generally considered a cost-efficient method of obtaining 20% quality gems if the player does not have the means to obtain a large number of Gemcutter's Prisms.
