The gems and enchants page has been updated on the main website. It lists the best enchants along with cheaper alternatives. Gem choice is also outlined for each color slot. Currently I believe getting socket bonuses is worth it since the gems are pretty good for each slot and each gem socket gives +10 to a stat on items. This may change and is definitely up for debate. Something with 3 sockets will give +30 to a stat though, so it's almost an extra gem in itself. Helms give even more of a socket bonus.
