Jerseymen are traditionally called ‘crapauds’, the French word for ‘toads’. Jersey was the last Channel Island to be cut off after the Ice Age so the common toad occurs only here, and this is the most likely reason for the colloquial name of Jersey people.
Rather than croak about their nickname, the people of Jersey take a certain ironic pride in their ‘crapaud’ status.
Crapaud range prices from £95.
Available as pendants, charms, cufflinks and key rings in sterling silver, or to order in 18ct gold and platinum.
