To celebrate the band’s 50th anniversary, The Rolling Stones have teamed up with rock & roll jewelers The Great Frog through their fashion and lifestyle brand, RS No9 Carnaby, to create a special anniversary jewelry collection.
The original artwork from The Rolling Stones’ top ten charting album, Beggars Banquet, which was originally released in 1968, served as inspiration for the jewelry collection, which included references to the album cover’s iconic graphics.
One piece of handcrafted jewellery, the “Beggars Banquet Defaced Skull Ring,” features a skull design with engravings from the album cover, while another, the “Rolling Stones Tongue Signet Ring,” features a golden twist on the iconic Rolling Stones tongue design, and the “Rolling Stones I.D Bracelet,” is a chunky chain with engravings from the album cover, as well as a unique clasp mechanism with the tongue logo, which is opened by pressing
A solid 9ct yellow gold tongue logo is embedded into the surface of each piece, which is hallmarked in the United Kingdom.
According to Reino Lehtonen-Riley, the owner of The Great Frog, “The Great Frog and The Rolling Stones were born from the epicenter of London’s first youth culture movement, Carnaby Street, and are intertwined by the groundswell of the era-defining rock and roll movement of the 1960s.” The Great Frog is located at 66 Carnaby Street in London.
‘Because we are both intrinsically linked to the zeitgeist of the first rock and roll generation, this collaboration has been in the works for 60 years, and we are incredibly proud to be working with the biggest and best band of all time,’ says the band’s manager.
Exclusive to RS No. 9 Carnaby in London, the Rolling Stones x The Great Frog jewelry collection will be available beginning on April 8, with prices starting at 310 pounds.
