You can put gems in there. You can make gems at Sagecraft Altars, one can be found in the first village in the Monastery. You use shards that you find around the world to make gems. These gems when inserted provide bonuses, elemental protection, extra health etc. Different sockets are filled with different gems eg Armor gems go in the armor socket, utility gems go in utility sockets.

How exactly do you put gem inside a weapon or armor?

I have a few armor with socket and also a few gem in my inventry but don't seem to find any function that allows me to insert the gem

Please help me out here. Thanks

you put them in and take them out at the sagecraft altar as well.

go to one and it should explain how to make them and how inserting them works.
i tried being serious once, in 1989.. didn't particularly care for it.. so don't expect it to happen again.
