    This is correct. Whatever socketed in the item (in this case a P ruby) would be destroyed

    Weve all done this!

    I now religiously keep my important socketable items on the left side of my stash and gems runes and jewels on the rightside. :)

    Socket to me (this is getting tiresome!)

    Yes, you can. You need a Hel rune and a scroll of Town portal (and naturally, that handy Horadric Cube). Place shako in the cube with said ingredients, hit transmute, and voila! This will destroy the ruby and there's no getting around that but hey, now your shako has its socket free once more to do with as you please.
