Jewel net worth: Jewel is an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, actress and poet who has a net worth of $30 million. Jewel Kilcher was born on May 23, 1974 in Payson, Utah but soon moved to Homer, Alaska. Her grandparents Yule and Ruth Kilcher were among the earliest settlers in Homer, having emigrated from Switzerland in the 1930s. Yule Kilcher would go on to become an Alaskan state senator and a delegate to the Alaska State Constitutional Convention. Jewel's father Atz was one of seven siblings who were all home schooled because their family property was too remote for cars to drive in and out of. Subsequently, the family entertained itself with songs, plays, art and games organized by Ruth who was a classically trained singer back in Switzerland. The home Jewel grew up in did not have indoor plumbing or heat for many years. The love of music and performing was passed down to Jewel who decided at a very young age that she wanted to be a singer. She wrote her first song at the age of 16 and was discovered at a San Diego coffee shop and was signed immediately to Atlantic Records. Jewel wrote and recorded her first album "Pieces of You" when she was just 21 years old. That album would go on to sell more than 15 million copies worldwide. Over the years, Jewel has released 12 studio albums which have sold more than 30 million copies world wide. Her family stars on the popular Discovery Channel reality television series "Alaska: The Last Frontier". In 2008, Jewel married a professional rodeo cowboy named Ty Murry in the Bahamas. They had already been dating for more than 10 years. Today they have a son named Kase who was born in July 2011. In addition to her music albums, Jewel has released live concert DVDs and seven books. The books range from poetry, to short stories to song books.
