    When my dad raised me he gave me a ring. Our lodge has baseball caps with the square and compasses on them and he name of our lodge.I have a Scottish Rite eagle on my car, as am a Scottish Rite Mason.

    I wear my ring every day, I have a S&C tie chain that I wear when I'm wearing a tie (and that's almost every day), I have TX Masonic plates on my car, and I have the Masonic slipper in the back window of my mother's car for her.

    I have some small displays, but nothing that outright indicates my membership. I have a keychain, a concho on my briefcase, and a small sticker on my truck. I did away with the Masonic license plates since I didn't want people hating Freemasons in case they didn't like my driving.

    Has anyone ever been frowned upon or asked to remove it at work because of "negativity it may cause" with customers or co-workers?

    No outright displays of the S&C at work other than a a small S&C on the bottom right corner of my computer's screen saver. I've a discreet stainless steel ring that will get occasional wear when I'm out and about. (Just raised. Never worn it.) It's not spectacular and would probably be overlooked or missed by 95% of the people I encounter.

    Yes! Tonight is the night I get raised, and I am so excited even though I don't know what to expect.

    I will also be able to start wearing my ring that was a gift, but the biggest gift of all is that I will be a master mason.

    I after my raising received my great grandfathers ring which had to be re-sized, but I have not taken it off since the day I got it back from the jeweler. I wear it proudly everyday.

    I get far more questions because of my roller derby pins and tattoo than I ever get about my S&C.

    Have the license plate, but have gotten away from wearing Masonic jewelry unless attending a lodge function that day. No real reason for it.
    As SW this year, I had some lodge jackets made up and wear it in public if its cool enough outside.

    I've seen on other forums that people wearing Masonic clothing / jewelery have been approached by someone that said they would have to take the item unless the person wearing it could prove to their satisfaction they they were a Mason. Anyone experienced this?

    I'd never allow another man to take something that belongs to me unless my life depended on it. Masonry or otherwise.

    Wear my ring daily, have a few different lapel pins that I wear whenever I'm in lodge. If you look very carefully in the tail lights of my personal vehicle you will see a very subtle S&C but you would have to be close to see it lol. There are some nice lapel and lodge pins that make excellent gifts to brethren, especially when visiting and travelling :)

    I keep my liGht on everyday and any worthy MM should also if he feels like it , I would recommend you be able to answer a few questions if asked as any MM who regularly attend meetings should be able to but if not oh well just show your dues card and keep it moving if you have been raised to the sublime degree of MM you are entitled to display the S&C or any other emblem pertaining to that degree , LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE BRIGHT
