Third Of Four Officially Licensed IRON MAIDEN Rings Available From THE GREAT FROG

August 5, 2016

Legendary jewelers The Great Frog, synonymous with the rock and roll scene since 1972, have launched the third of four official IRON MAIDEN rings with "Killers Eddie".

The Great Frog, now in its 44th year as the go-to brand for alternative, high-end jewellery, has hand crafted a series of four solid sterling silver rings to be released in collaboration with IRON MAIDEN.

The third design in the collection, "Killers Eddie", is based on the artwork of MAIDEN's second album, "Killers", designed by Derek Riggs.

The predecessors in this collaboration, "Powerslave Eddie" and "Piece Of Mind Eddie", have been so successful since its launch in December 2015, the IRON MAIDEN collection so far have sold more than all other TGF collaborative pieces put together, including collections with MOTÖRHEAD, SLAYER, ANTHRAX and GHOST.

Designed and handcrafted by The Great Frog owner Reino Lehtonen-Riley, the "Kilers Eddie" ring has been handmade in London. The initial design is carved by hand into wax before being cast in solid sterling silver and finished by hand in their London workshop. Each ring is made sized to fit and will be available in-store in the London, Los Angeles and New York stores and online at Each ring is unique and will be individually numbered with an authentication certificate signed by Reino Lehtonen-Riley included with every purchase.

The Great Frog has had a long-standing relationship with the band; in 1983 the London jewelers were asked by IRON MAIDEN's lead singer Bruce Dickinson to produce a one-off Eddie belt buckle ahead of the "Powerslave" tour. Unusually this was carved straight into brass rather than traditional wax carving TGF use to produce its jewellery.

With approval and close scrutiny from IRON MAIDEN's management, this has been a dream come true for lifetime IRON MAIDEN fan and TGF owner Reino Lehtonen-Riley who spent many childhood (and adult) years drawing the stunning IRON MAIDEN album cover art.
