Many people have been asking if can you benefit from crafting gems, the answer is yes, but you can only make good profit if you scavenge all materials required.

Jewel Cost References
Mats: Prices based on 100% Scavenged Flawless Square gems, Tomes of Secrets, and Gold.
--- Perfect Square : 30k Per Craft
--- Radiant Square : 50k Per Craft
= 140k Total craft cost from scratch
--- Star : 80k Per Craft
= 500k Total craft cost from scratch
--- Flawless Star : 100k Per Craft
= 1.6m Total craft cost from scratch
--- Perfect Star : 200k Per Craft
= 5m Total craft cost from scratch
--- Radiant Star : 400k Per Craft
= 15.4m Total craft cost from scratch
Now subtract those total costs from whatever the current value is for the gem you want to make and there's your profit.
I personally use gem crafting as a banking system because I have a hard time holding onto my gold.... They're a solid asset to have.
Let me know if this has been useful, I have some more quick reference guides I may post if so.

You set your own price.
But the AH will display the avg last 10 trades or something and will always sell the buyer the lowest priced gem available.
So you can set the price at 100x the avg price, but it probably will never sell.

Depending on the price, sometimes is more profitable to just sell off the mats. I can't say what the breaking point is since, like you said this price always changing.
If you see flawless emerald squares go for 4k+, it's probably more profitable to just sell it if the higher up gem prices have not caught up with the lower.
