According to this site, the Jeweler can, besides removing and combining gems, also add new sockets to existing items.

I just acquired the Jeweler, but I can see no such option in his menus.

Do I have to upgrade him to a certain level to unlock the skill?

According to Blizzard, the Artisan cannot add sockets, and the game guide is erroneous (to be updated in the future):

Artisans cannot add sockets to items. That information about the jeweler in the game guide of our website is erroneous and we're in the process of updating it.

Socketing was a feature that was in the game very early on, but ultimately it didn't end up enhancing the play experience as we had hoped.

how lame. gems are really powerful in this game. :P –  heishe May 19 '12 at 6:54
will probably come in one of the expansions :)) –  ptikobj May 25 '12 at 7:21

From what I have read level 9 does not do it. I have seen screenshots at level 10 without the option to add a socket. It might be a recipe that needs to be found first.

There is no socket add in D3

This was only avalible in D2 expansion ACT5 lord of destruction

Maybe it will be avalible in the D3 expansion Reapers of soul
