If you crafted the gem in, it cannot be removed. There is a possibility you can salvage the effect out in a component though.

If you socketed a gem in using sagecrafting, you can remove it with maxed out sagecrafting skill.

If you used a gem using blacksmithing, you can't separate the gem out, but you may be able to get a component that has the gem's attribute by salvaging.

That's only for gems you use in a socket. Don't think you can get back gems used as components.

Wouldn't really matter late game anyway, since you'll be making your own Gems.
You get the option to skip the tutorial stuff, so you'll start right at the balls. - Jabodie

^ That.

If you're a level 8 sagecrafter, you can recreate any gem you want anyway so there is no need to salvage them.

Any gems that you put into slots can be removed by certain NPCs. Most of the times they'll be ones standing near a sagecraft altar.
