Heritage

Established in 1972, The Great Frog came out of Carnaby Street after the swinging 60s offering a rock ’n’ roll alternative to mainstream jewellery catering to the emerging subcultures of heavy metal, rock ‘n’ roll, rockers, punks and bikers. 

We are a second-generation, family owned company rooted firmly in our British heritage.

We began making our distinctive silver jewellery from our small ominous black shop in central London nearly 50 years ago. Inspired by the new breed of heavy metal artists, we created jewellery with darker themes and symbolism to a sub-culture of outsiders. We challenged the status quo and single handedly created a new genre.

Rock ‘n’ roll jewellery was born.

Renown for establishing the skull ring as the go-to motif for outlaws and rebels, our reputation spread word of mouth attracting the attention of legendary artists who are still loyal customers and friends today.
