Take one look at this British jewelry line’s skull-emblazoned baubles and it's clear the label was conceived during a punk-rock era in a city known for its edgy fashion. The Great Frog opened its first store in 1972 in London’s Carnaby neighborhood, then known for its burgeoning mod scene. The brand handcrafts all of its statement jewelry at its original U.K. store and creates bespoke designs for clients who range from fashionistas Kate Moss and Alexa Chung to rockers such as the Rolling Stones and athletes like Michael Jordan. Having already expanded stateside with a store in Los Angeles, the company’s third location appropriately takes root on the Lower East Side. Glass display cases hold biker skull rings ($290), anchor pendants ($300) and horseshoe rings with star details ($250). As an ode to the company’s rock heritage, the shop also carries Cobra Guitars ($3,000–$5,000).
