The Wizard Jewels (or the Wild Magic Jewels) are a set of magic items theyaserve as the "MacGuffin" of second season of Princess Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders, taking over from and replacing the hunt for the Crown Jewels from season one. Similar to them, the Wizard Jewels are the hidden treasures that the Jewel Riders need to find and collect so good can triumph over evil and their mentor Merlin can be freed from the Wild Magic at long last.
These powerful magic jewels once each belonged to an ancient wizard. Now that the wizards are gone, their jewels can usually be now found in their former lairs, protected by traps. The Wizard Jewels are also attracted to places of strong magic—not necessarily just in Avalon. This time, the Jewel Riders will need to compete not only with Lady Kale, but also with their new ultimate enemy, Morgana.
The new Jewel Quest Edit
When the good wizard Merlin threw the evil ancient wizards into the Wild Magic, their magic jewels flew everywhere. But then he also lost his jewel at the end of the original Jewel Quest. In order to save Merlin, his students, Princess Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders, must search for and secure enough of the Wizard Jewels and assemble them into the new Jewel Box, and then forge them together as a new jewel for him so he could finally be able to return to Avalon.
Meanwhile, the dark alliance of the unexpectedly returning Avalon's renegade princess Lady Kale with newly resurrected ancient wizard Queen Morgana is also seeking the jewels for themselves, so they might use them destroy Merlin, and then rule both Avalon and all the worlds connected via the Wild Magic forevermore. The Jewel Riders and their friends can not allow for such power to fall into the hands of such an evil—and, once collected, the Jewels can be used by them to vanquish the forces of darkness and deliver Merlin from his Wild Magic prison.

Dark Stone Edit
- Main article: Dark Stone
The Dark Stone was created and first owned by Morgana, who had originally named it the Dark Jewel and specifically tuned it to dispose of the lone good wizard Merlin. It is an extremely powerful wizard jewel but is unpredictable and erratic.
Through most of the series, it is owned and wielded by new evil sorceress of Avalon, Lady Kale, after she finds and tunes it. At the beginning of the second season, Morgana reunites with her jewel, but discovers she can not use it to return to Avalon because it is now bonded to Kale. Eventually, after the latter is finally defeated by a spell of Gwenevere, using the other Wizard Jewels, the still dangerous Dark Stone is taken by Ian for safekeeping and later actually used by Gwen against Morgana.
One Jewel Edit
The One Jewel is a magical item of superbly immense power, able to channel all of the Wizard Jewels' magic. It is featured in the show's last episode, "The One Jewel" (aka "The Last Dance"), when it is created by combining the Staff of Avalon and the Wizard Jewels during the showdown of Merlin and the Jewel Riders against Morgana and the returning evil wizards.
Using the Staff of Avalon, the Wizard Jewels can be fused in a special magic forge in the Center of the Wild Magic to create the ultimate Wizard Jewel to rule all the magic. To make it, Princess Gwenevere absorbs the magic of the Dark Stone to re-power her own Sun Stone. Upon the creation of the One Jewel, Morgana attempts to seize it but Gwen snatches it for Merlin, who uses it to eradicate his dark magic wizard rivals.
