Hi, there--

Paul Cameron (don't know if it's his real name or simply an ebay handle) had a lovely crimson Jewel for sale on UK ebay a year or two ago. I downloaded the auction photos and if I can dig them up I'll send them to you. I recall that one of the things that struck me on that bike was the incredibly lovely "carved" stem. And if my memory holds, I think somewhere on the bike was embedded an actual jewel.

Paul at the same time was selling the Jewel along with a number of other amazing bikes, including a hen's tooth rare Viking SBU tracker in blue with the unusual rear stays, see link below----

I'd die for either of those two machines.

Cheers,
