Locked Gem is a type of gem that appears in Bejeweled Twist. It can't be moved, but the player can still be matched it as usual.

The player is alerted when a Locked Gem will appear by turning the gem to be locked into a Locking Gem. They appear as a normal gem with a small gray lock hovering above it, giving the player one last chance to move it. If it is not cleared, the lock will rise up and then secure itself onto the gem when the player twists once more. The gem will be encased in a metal cage, with the lock connected to it by four chains attached to the corners.

Any Fruit Gem detonation will free all gems locked down.


Locked Gems primarily only appear in two gamemodes, Classic and Challenge mode. In Classic, Locked Gems are first appeared in level 4. In the first few levels, they do not appear commonly, but as the player progresses they appear much more frequently.

In Challenge, Locked Gems only appear in the Survivor puzzles. They were also going to be used in Locksmith, a challenge type that wasn't added.

First appearance is in Gyromance what works same as in Bejeweled Twist.


  • Locked Gems only appear in Classic mode after Level 3, but it is possible to make them appear earlier by editing some of the game files.
  • It is possible to clear the Locking Gem in two moves, but it takes timing and speed to execute it.
