Please, note that it is not possible to enchant gems and weapons from the Summer Update 2017 on, holy shrines have now a different purpose.
Holy Shrines are structures with magical capabilities that could enhance jewels, transferring some magical properties to them. Gems could be enchanted by a druid or sorcerer above level 30 with a premium account. All shrines, however, could not be reached by a single vocation. Each of the two vocations had access to their prominent elements' shrines. That is, druids could enchant sapphires and emeralds to attain enchanted ones (ice and earth, respectively), while sorcerers could enchant amethysts and rubies (energy and fire).
Gems enchanted with an element could in turn be used on certain melee weapons to give temporal elemental powers, whose damage would be in part dealt in the element it had had attributed to it. Not all weapons could be enchanted. Gems can also be used to enchant the Rainbow Shield, which has its own set of enhancements, and to recharge Firewalker Boots.
Gems will not return to the owner upon being used - they will disappear forever once the charges have been depleted. You cannot reacquire the gems once bound to an item.
Enchanting a gemstone required the raw gem and 300 mana. You enchanted them by using the gemstones on the appropriate shrine. Note that the shrine's location is concealed, you can only access it by portals. They are also located inside protection zones, so nothing from outside can harm you.
