Design: A nice piece of ornamental lettering featuring bifurcated serifs and bracketed main stems. At the top is a logo of a multi-faceted jewel, superimposed on a decorative bar which is repeated below the label name in a well-arranged grouping.

History: Launched in 1927, the label lasted until 1932. Collector and musicologist Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K. notes that Jewel was associated with the Regal record label. Label scan courtesy of collector Kjell Thorsen of Norway.
