If you forgot to pick up the jewels, be sure to check the chest next to either of Brok’s and Sindri’s workshops as it collects your missing/lost items.

The first hidden gem of Yggdrasil you will access is located in Vanaheim. You will first visit this realm in a main story quest, but the jewel can be found after completing the quest. Navigate to The garden of Naotunjust east of the Mystic Gateway River delta.

Use the new sigil arrows to burn the red vines covering the entrance to the ruins in the garden of Naotun. Once the vines are gone, enter to find a gold chest containing the jewel.
