    This was something I was wondering myself" if I could wear a masonic ring" prior to my raising. What I was told was that, no I shouldn't because it give a false impression and I would not be able to prove my self a mason.

    What you where told is correct until you have reached the sublime degree of master mason and you are comfortable being tried you should Not ware anything masonic , along with giving the false impression that you are a master mason you would not be able to defend the craft to the fullest extant if you where ask the question dealing in the third degree.. ..brother I hope this was helpful

    The answer does vary jurisdiction to jurisdiction to jurisdiction so it has to be asked locally. There are rules in some jurisdictions, traditions in others. In the last year on this forum it's been reported that at least one Australia jurisdiction allows wearing symbols after being initiated. The jurisdictions where I am a member the tradition/rule is either after being raised or after presenting your MM proficiency. It's easy to say after giving your MM proficiency as that's the most conservative answer but the local answer might be less conservative.

    You are not actually a Mason until you get the sublime degree so you should not wear it

    Depends on your jurisdiction. In my jurisdiction you are made a mason in the EA. but should refrain from wearing jewelry until you are raised out of tradition. There is no written rule in TX

    By the way, there is also no any written rules about masonic rings in UGLE. So, A UGLE EA can wear masonic rings.

    Take a look at BigDre357's profile. The grand lodge he lists is not a recognized one so likely his statements do apply to his jurisdiction. They sure don't apply to regular jurisdictions. He likely did not know at the time he was petitioning to a clandestine lodge. Please look into healing, step-brother Reuben Drennon!

    We are Masons as soon as we complete our EA obligation though many jurisdictions don't have EA/FCs wear jewelry. We aren't Illustrious until we are coroneted (not sure if that's the correct word) 33rd degree.

    That's the correct word (other than it should be a double T, i.e., coronetted.)
