How do you recover socketed gems/runes from an item?

Aside from playing Diablo 3 for countless hours of the day, I can honestly say that I never beat Diablo 2. In fact, I decided to start playing it again to see if I could beat the ol' game. Seeing as I didn't play much of D2 before I didn't get to experience the whole thing. How do I remove a jewel or a gem from a socketed item? Is there a jeweler in D2 like there is in D3?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Based on this formula page you may use the Horodric Cube recipe of combining your socketed item with 1 Hel Rune and 1 Scroll of Town Portal to destroy the gems inside and leave fresh sockets. The Cube also replaces the Jeweler's gem combining function: combining three gems of the same type and quality (other than Perfect) promotes it one level.

Note that the gems will be destroyed in this example, not returned to inventory – Alok Jun 27 '12 at 23:54
