TBC Gemming Recommendations

I’m very confused about the gemming recommendations for TBC. The BiB is recommending a Bracing Earthstorm Diamond (healing meta) for my warlock. For my mage, I got new shoulders, checked BiB and Runed Living Ruby x2 was the recommendation. I socketed the (expensive!) gems, rechecked BiB and the recommendation was for two other different gems (I changed nothing else).

So, I’m confused. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
