    Ebay. I looked all over and I eventually found a vintage one that I feel in love with. I actually purchased it a week before having my Masters put on. That night, I read a poem and pulled out the ring from my pocket, put it on my right hand and now wear it with pride to myself and the Fraternity :)

    I got my first and so far only ring from Gordon Spurlock. Great price, great ring. I work in harsh enviroments at times and I never take my ring off. It does not scratch easy. I have been very happy with it. I know there are some really nice rings out there but I also know I could never wear them to work.

    Did anyone get the Texas one? I would love one of those. BTW, do a search for "Vintage masonic ring" on ebay..there are some wonderful finds.

    I personally am quite fond of the "Masonic Skulls". I have 3 rings that I wear at different times that have skulls on them. It reminds me that death can tap me on the shoulder at any time and to make the most out of every day. They are integral in both the Scottish Rite and York Rite degrees. They were also very prevalent in the Grand Lodge Of The Republic of Texas(GLRT). The documents hanging in the Grand Lodge museum that date to that period all have a skull and crossbones sealed at the bottom. And in the basement of Grand Lodge you can see a black velvet apron with a silver skull. In addition, the scholars that believe we are rooted in the Knights Templar also believe that pirates and corsairs are also rooted there, thus the Jolly Rodger. Momento Mori.

    Brother Blake, look on ebay before you buy even from this guy because he has a store on ebay with some discounted stuff.

    My fiancee bought me one and was going to give it to me in a couple of weeks for Christmas. She was keeping it in a little velvet bag in her purse. One night while driving back from stated meeting, her purse fell over in my messy floorboard and spilled everything out. She thought she had picked it all up, but apparently she didn't put the ring back in her purse. I proceeded to clean out my car the next day and was just grabbing handfuls of stuff to throw away (can you see where this is going) and a couple days later I find her frantically rummaging through her purse; she asks for my keys and then runs out to the car. She comes in and proceeds to tell me what happened. It appears that I inadvertently threw it away. Alas! I fear it will be a long while before I am able to get a ring.
