Debedeavon's Ring, The Laughing Indian King

This ring is made as a signet ring in a large size, sterling silver, suitable for a man or to be worn as a middle finger ring. In the early 1600s, Debedeavon was known as the Laughing King, the emperor of the Eastern Shore of Virginia Indians, the Nusswattock tribe. In 1865 a ring was found and the front image of the signet ring was documented (see Whitelaw's page 178). It is believed to have been Debedeavon's signet ring. The ring I made is sand cast from a wax model of the documented design, using a technique that is older than Debedeavon's time. This ring can be made to your specific size, however the top signet piece is about 7/8" or 23mm in diameter.

Dimensions: The signet ring top is approx. 7/8" (23mm) in diameter. The ring can be made to fit a ring size from 7 to 12.
