Jewels is a supporter's album by Einstürzende Neubauten, completed in mid-2007. Instead of being released as a full album, it was released digitally one track at a time, available as website downloads only to subscribers of the Phase III Supporter Project, consisting of 15 "jewels" (as the band called them). Starting in March 2006, these downloadable tracks were released on or around the 15th of each month and were drawn from singer Blixa Bargeld's dreams.

Despite the Supporter Project site saying it "would form a digital-only album that will not be otherwise available", the album was eventually re-issued and released commercially through their own Potomak label as The Jewels, in July 2008.
