Even though I posted about wanting a skull ring waaaaaaaaaay back in 2009, I still haven’t managed to get my hands (fnar!) on one. It’s been so long now that I think I’ll just save up a small bit of cash and fulfill my desire in The Great Frog, otherwise known as Mecca for Skull Rings!
The Great Frog is located just off Carnaby Street in London and has been in existence since 1972. Their original clientele were bikers and “those on the edge of the mainstream” (as their site says) and over the years this has grown to include famous rockers like Slash and members of Metallica and Aerosmith, to Kate Moss and Lady Gaga (check out the full list of famous customers here).
I was in the shop about six or seven years ago and I can attest to the quality of the pieces; all handmade from sterling silver with great attention to detail and beautiful work. The staff are also lovely and know their stock very well.
My favourites are below and next time I’m in London I’m determined to make this particular jewellery dream come true!
