Within her first eight months in the business she won Best New Starlet at the Cannes Film Festival in 1999, Starlet of the year at the NIGHTMOVES Magazine awards show and in 2000 XRCO awarded her Best New Starlet. Jewel's biggest acclaim to date happened in 2001 when she won two awards at the AVN Adult Awards show in Las Vegas where she was named FEMALE PERFORMER OF THE YEAR and also won for BEST GIRL/GIRL SEX SCENE. Not bad for a country girl from Colorado!
Jewel De'Nyle is the proud owner of Platinum Jewel a high end porn company she founded in 2007. Jewel decided to start Platinum Jewel after she'd started her own company before just to have it taken away by the many sharks in the adult industry but like they say can't keep a good woman down. Jewel's company has proved to be a to reckon with as she has had major success and has had one of the top selling celebrity tapes of all time The Notorious Jewel De'Nyle and Shelly Martinez. Not only was this Jewel's one and only comeback movie but to be able to pull it off with a major wrestling star just started her company off with a huge bang. Jewel is and has been one of the only females in porn to ever accomplish being a company owner/female director in world of the good ole boys club. She has proven herself again and again to be one of the leaders in the adult industry.
Jewel has directed over 100+ movies starting with Jill Kelly back in 2000 then Puritan where she directed for several years the Babes in Pornland series and Fresh Porn Babes series. Then she went on to start Platinum X where she directed 60+ hardcore adult movies along with making movies for 5th Element after having some bad business choices she decided to start over with Platinum Jewel where you can now find all her latest work that shows off her star quality and where she shines as a director. Jewel is now retired and is solely directing for Platinum Jewel and remains focused on providing her fans with the best movies possible and updates to this site which is her official site.
Jewel's career has stood the test of time which makes her a legend in her own right as most careers today last a period of maybe 1-2yrs if they're lucky. There's something to be said about this hardcore beauty to have ten plus years in this business and still staying strong in a market flooded with girls and new porn companies popping up everyday. One thing remains she's always been true to her fans and to herself that's why she is one of the last living porn legends.

Interview with Jewel - June 30, 2001
On the Set Of "Euphoria" in Los Angeles, CA
Pornstarempire.com: I'm sitting here talking to Jewel De'Nyle. How long have you been in the industry?
Jewel: A little over 4 years.
Q: And what was your first movie?
Jewel: Pink Hotel for Evil Angel.
Q: Who did you work with?
Jewel: I worked with Peter North.
Q: How was that?
Jewel: It was good. I dated him for a couple of years after that movie and he kind of taught me a lot about the business. He gave me 16 years experience in like 2 years, so it was good.
Q: Do you think that was good for you?
Jewel: Oh yeah.
Q: Or do you think you should have learned on your own?
Jewel: No. Absolutely not, I'm glad I learned what I learned. Lots of girls get into this business and don't have a clue what they're getting into and it eats them up.
Q: Do you think that he saved you from...
Jewel: I really don't want to talk about Peter North...so I just want to say that he's an ex of mine and we'll just leave it at that.
Q: So, when you first came into the business, did you do everything or...
Jewel: No, like recently I just started doing interracial. I wanted to wait until I had my own series because I wanted to do something I had never done before. Everything I've done, I've done for a reason, marketing value really. Like I waited a year to do anal, then I waited to do DP's, then I waited to do interracial. It was a stepping stone so I didn't give my fans everything at once.
Q: Did you do those things in your personal life?
Jewel: Umm...anal yeah, DP and interracial, no.
Q: And was it a big stretch for you to do those things? Was it tough?
Jewel: No, no, not a big deal. Interracial...there are a lot of guys in this business that, the black guys in this business that are really talented and are really good looking and I have really good chemistry with and that was fun. And DP was no big deal.
Q: So, you have your own series now. What's it called?
Jewel: Umm...I had a series with Jill Kelly called Jewel De'Nyle's Sluts of the Nile Volumes 1-5 and I recently just left Jill Kelly Productions and I just signed a deal with Puritan. I just started a new line with Puritan and it's called Jewel De'Nyle's Babes in Pornland. So...
Q: And what are you going to do in this series to make it different?
Jewel: In every single movie it will have a different theme. Like in the first one all the girls will be doing facials, the one after that will be all anal, the one after that will be interracial. Every one of them will have their own theme.
Q: What particular thing about this business do you like?
Jewel: Umm...the money's good, the people, I get to travel a lot. I'm very fortunate, I get to go to Germany this year. I've been to France, I've been to Italy, I get to travel a lot, I get to see the world.
Q: Do you dance?
Jewel: Yeah, I dance twice a month.
Q: So is that what you do when you travel?
Jewel: Dancing yeah, but mostly I travel overseas to do scenes for movies or for conventions.
Q: So a lot of the girls prefer to do dialogue or not do dialogue. What do you prefer?
Jewel: I prefer not to do dialogue, but for some reason I always get put into these huge dialogue parts because I can handle dialogue pretty well and I'm pretty good with it and have a good memory. I usually have huge dialogue parts but luckily today I'm just doing a vignette.
Q: And who are you working with today?
Jewel: I'm doing a DP with Pat Myne and Billy Glide and I have never worked with either one of those guys, so...it's all new to me today, which is unusual.
Q: Everyone knows that the girls get to close who they work with. Have you met these guys before?
Jewel: Oh no, I've known these guys, I've been on set with them. It's kind of a small world in porn, you know everybody. I've been on the set with them before, but it's always a hit or miss. Either I'm working with someone else, or they're working with someone else, in three years I've never worked with either one of them, so...
Q: What's your favorite scene that you've done?
Jewel: I would have to say in a movie that I did for Extreme Associates, [it] was Luciano's Face Down, Ass Up #2. I did the most incredible anal scene I've ever done. It was really intense, really hot and sexy. And then I'm going to have to say in my series, umm...my Sluts of the Nile #5, I did a scene with Marc Davis, that was just wild. So those two are kind of tied.
Q: So, you're known for your dirty talk, what other traits do you possess? What makes you wild? What makes you so popular?
Jewel: Umm...I'm natural about it. I didn't come into this business knowing what to do. I never watched a porno before I came into the business, it's very strange. You know, most people think you have to study porn and be all, you know, the first porno I ever saw was the first one I was ever in. And I was natural and very verbal, and very into sex, so when I first came into it nothing was faked and you can tell that I was natural with it. You can watch the girls that are faking it and you can watch the girls that are doing it for real. When I first got into this business I didn't realize anything was fake, everything I did was real, so it showed and it made me stand out quite a bit.
Q: So you were sexual before you came here?
Jewel: Oh yeah, I was totally into girls, totally into guys, whatever and umm...porn wasn't a big stretch for me, on the sex end of it.
Q: So, what brought you here?
Jewel: Dancing. I was at a club and Selena Steele, an older porn star, saw me and saw me do a thing with another girl. She said that if I was going to be that nasty I might as well do porn. So she gave me a few numbers and the rest is history. She tells me now that she created a monster.
Q: Is there anything that you haven't done yet that you really want to do?
Jewel: Umm...maybe someday I'll probably do like ten guys. Like a mini-gangbang. I'm not into the five hundred gang-bang and all that other bullshit, but like ten guys is like a fantasy thing. Maybe I want to be a Cleopatra type setting and have all these guys around me and that to me is like a fantasy thing, but you know, for later down the line because it's something that I've never done.
Q: So, what you're doing is that you're saving little pieces of you instead of re-inventing yourself later down the line?
Jewel: Exactly, and I've always done that since I've gotten in the business. You know, I don't want to bring up Peter North again, but he taught me don't give everything all at once because you'll be burned out and your career will be finished. I always took the advice in what I did.
Q: So when do you think you discovered your sexuality?
Jewel: Umm...when I was 15.
Q: And what happened?
Jewel: Umm...you know, I just got into girls and I found out that I like women, and I got into guys too. And I found out I like both, it was like a whole new world. You know, but it was cool.
Q: So when did you lose your virginity?
Jewel: When I was 15.
Q: Did you masturbate before then?
Jewel: I don't remember. I have no clue, I totally don't even know. I know after I was sexually active I masturbated, but before then I don't recall.
Q: Now that you're here, what are your plans? Are you going to stay here for a while?
Jewel: In the business? I plan on staying here for another 7-8 more years. Then I'll be retired, so, I'll have enough money so I won't have to do a comeback movie. I saved all my money, unlike some of the broads in this business. They may have a nice Gucci bag and a nice car but in ten years that's exactly what they're going to be living out of. And I'm not going to be one of them, so...
Q: Do you have any advice to give anyone thinking of getting into the business?
Jewel: It's a lot of money, it's fast money, it's good money, save your money because this business doesn't last forever and if you're stupid about it, you're going to end up with nothing. You will end up with a high lifestyle, but when it's all done and over you're not going to be able to live that lifestyle anymore and a lot of these people go to other means like the Bunny Ranch and end up as hookers. Washed up porn stars...and I don't wish that on anybody.
Q: It's very interesting that you say that, I'm doing an article on that, something similar to that...
Jewel: It's the truth though.
Q: Do you really feel that it's the end of the line?
Jewel: The end of the line is the Bunny Ranch. You come into porn, you make a ton of money and then the phone calls stop. One day, you've spent all your money and you're used to living an extravagant lifestyle. You don't know what else to do, you're at the end of your rope, sex is all you know, all you've done for the last ten years of your life. Are you going to apply for a job and they're going to ask you what you've done for the last ten years? What are you going to put on the application? So, most of these girls end up at the Bunny Ranch or they end up as escorts because that's all they know and the money, that's all they're used to having, the cash money. And when it's all done and said, that's where they end up. I feel sorry for them.
Q: Let's go on a lighter note for a moment...Who's your favorite actor to work with?
Jewel: Umm...Luciano, Marc Davis and Lexington Steele.
Q: And who are your favorite actresses?
Jewel: Oh my God! There is so many. Serenity is my absolute favorite girl to work with. There is a black girl named Monique who's absolutely the hottest, she is phenomenal. I did a girl/girl scene with her that was just rocking.
Q: She's the only woman that I ever saw perform that made the crew stop and watch. They even applauded.
Jewel: Yeah, I totally dig her and Serenity. Inari Vachs is another one of my favorite girls to work with because I like girls that like women. Too many times there are girls that come into this business who are "gay for pay", and I hate that. You can totally tell the difference.
Q: I'm going to steal that line.
Jewel: Exactly, "gay for pay", I hate girls like that, I hate working with them but Inari, Serenity and Monique, they're such great chicks and they're so into it, they're the only girls I can honestly say that have absolutely blown my mind when I've done scenes with them.
Q: You don't get to see that too often in this business, it's nice when you see the genuine article.
Q: So, you've had orgasms during work?
Jewel: Yeah, oh yeah. With every single one of those girls, but I've been with Serenity on a private basis too. Her and I fool around because we have our own novelty line together for Las Vegas Novelties and every once in awhile I make the trip out there to Las Vegas and we do the whole toy thing. Then we go out afterwards and experiment with our toys...on each other [laughing]! It's our excuse to go out and fuck...any excuse I can use!
Q: So what would you say is your favorite toy?
Jewel: The Sensual Feeler vibrators, the duel kit. It comes with two different vibrators and a sensual feel like sleeve over the top, it's awesome. And now Serenity and I have these strap-ons, and they're the strap-ons that don't go up your ass when you're wearing them, they wrap around your legs nice and tight. You can actually pound the girl and really get into it without it flipping and flopping everywhere.
Q: So, not like one of those cheap ones that you can't move with?
Jewel: Yeah, I hate that. These are so well made and they're vibrating, the vibrating strap-on. Serenity and I have the time of our lives with those things. They're incredible. I was really surprised because the egg (vibrator) is at the bottom of the dildo and I thought that it wouldn't give you that much of a vibration, that's the norm, but it will knock you over. It vibrates so good, it's awesome.
Q: So the last time I saw Serenity she gave me a toy from her company and next time I'll have to ask her for this one.
Jewel: Yes, you want the vibrating strap-on set with the duel kit, the duel vibrating kit.
Q: I'll remember that, then all I'll have to do is find someone to use it on.
Jewel: Yeah. Or use it on yourself, the duel kit you can use on yourself. The strap-on you're going to have to find somebody to play with.
Q: I already have a warehouse full of toys (laughing). It was a pleasure talking to you, thank you for your time.
Jewel: Thank you.
