Rock 'n' Roll Jewellery: Iron Maiden Launch ‘Killers Eddie’ Silver Ring
Metal gods Iron Maiden team up once more with London jewellers 'The Great Frog' for release of ‘Killers Eddie’ silver ring.
Iron Maiden have teamed up with London rock 'n' roll jewellers 'The Great Frog' to release the third of four official silver rings featuring the band’s mascot Eddie.
The collaboration previously resulted in jewellery showing Eddie’s Powerslave and Piece Of Mind guises, with the latest version based on Derek Riggs’ cover artwork from Maiden’s 1981 album 'Killers'.
Designer and The Great Frog owner Reino Lehtonen-Riley told TeamRock: “Killers is arguably one of the most recognised heavy metal album covers of all time. A truly sinister depiction of Eddie at his gruesome finest, brandishing a blood-soaked axe has always been my favourite of the maiden album covers.
“Eddie has a mischievous, maniacal grin which is quite disturbing. I really hope I have captured the essence and done it justice – quite a task as I think this is Derek Riggs' finest work.
“It’s such an honour to continue our ongoing relationship with metal heavyweights Iron Maiden”.
Cast in British .925 sterling silver each ring is individually numbered and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and signed letter from TGF owner and designer Reino Lehtonen-Riley.
They’re available at The Great Frog’s stores in London, Los Angeles and New York, and also through the jeweller’s website.
